I really enjoyed the cruise because;
It was small
The food , service and ambiance was great
The meals were excellent and I appreciated the the many choices and the portions were just right for me.
The lectures were informative
The tours were good, however, it depended on the expertise and interest of the guides leading the tour. I would have liked to have had some input in what I wanted to see especially in the Hermitage and Armory.
The rooms were very comfortable and I appreciated being able to watch lecures on the room TV.
It was comfortable, clean and restful.
