We arrived in Stockholm but Lufthansa lost our 2 checked bags. Reminded why we rarely check. Fortunately we had most of our things in carry on. While inquiring about bags we missed our bus to ship. Silversea provided us a car and driver. While no fault of ship- they provided quick turn around on laundry- much appreciated. Bags happily arrived in Tallin. We have been on several river cruises is was our first “ship” cruise. We were pleased with the service throughout the week. Our suite was fine except that we never mastered the thermostat- We found the food fair to good but really bland. We ate at LaDame once - vastly over rated. Really glad that we had arranged private tours for our 3 days in St.Petersburg- heard horror stories of people on our trip with group tours waiting 1 to 2 hours to get in Hermitage- then rushed through packed rooms. This was experience we had had 10 years ago in St. Petersburg- and wanted to avoid. Highly recommend using private guide there. We booked ship tour in Helsinki and Tallin. Would recommend just using ship shuttle in both and going into town. Old Town in Tallin was delightful- with easy shuttle back to ship.

Cabin Review

Classic Veranda Suite
Cabin CV 909
Older style- with tub - which we never use.
Could never get thermostat figured out- always too hot or cold.
Way too many decorative pillows.
Cabin attendants terrific-
Were able to get exactly the pillows that we wanted
