Thoroughly enjoyed our second cruise aboard Balmoral. This is a happy friendly ship with brilliant crew. We were not too impressed with Gothenburg but enjoyed our visits to Copenhagen, Tallin, Helsinki, St. Petersburg and Oslo. St. Petersburg was very busy so I can imagine that it is a nightmare to visit in the summer months. are some amazing cathedrals and waterways in St.Peterburg and it is worth the visit. The entertainment on board was again very good, sad to say the Balmoral show group were leaving the ship soon to go and do pantomime, hopefully they will return. The comedian and magician were excellent. we were fortunate to have excellent weather and calm seas. We have booked another cruise for next August taking advantage of an on board 10% discount.
