HiIghly recommend both Celebrity and this cruise we especially enjoyed Tallin and St. Petersburg. While we took the ship provided excursion to Tallin, which was excellent, friends of our utilized Hop-on/Hop-of and seemed to have seen much of the same sites. After speaking to our friends, unless there is a specific reason to do so, I don't think we will utilize shore excursions in the future but will utilize the Hop-o/Hop-off system in the future. We followed their, our fiends, suggestion to use Hop-on/Hop-off in both Amsterdam and Copenhagen. At first we were concerned about getting back to the ship but this concern was soon elayed when we realized that these buses and barges looped and would always take us back to the ship. We would take one complete loop noting the sites we would like to see and then repeat the loop Hopping off at the sites we noted and hopping back on the next bus when we were ready to go to the next site . . . . a really great, economically way to tour. We can't praise the crew, especially the wait staff in the main dining room. We found the meals in the main dining room to be excellent and while we did dine in one of the specialty restaurants we could see no reason why you would want to dine anywhere other than the main dining room except that you would want to be showy.
