"Good way to travel"

Enjoyed the trip but not the bedding. A fitted sheet would be so much nicer than the way the bedding is now.

This two-way trip aboard the ferry Romantica was a part of a wedding gift to my lovely wife and myself, and has exceeded our expecttation to a great extent. We occupied De Luxe class rooms, President and Ambassador respectively, and these accomodations were above and beyond the call, in my opinion. Very comfy, and the volume of noise is very low as compared to normal cabins. The ship was clean, neat and tidy, the staff was frendly, the food was delicious. The only two setbacks were the animators team (some kind of a brazilian carnival style music), which irritated us to some extent, and the renovations of carpets done on our deck that hampered our movement somewhat. Other than that, a great ride, all around! Alexei

The ship was nice. Beautiful views. The trip was calm no seasickness. The cabin. While as described by American standards, was a motel 6. No air conditioning that worked. We were on the second floor. Reserve only first class. More expensive but this was bad. 4 adults in a very small cabin. It would be much better higher up.

We recently travelled from Riga, Latvia to Stockholm, Sweden as a family group of 4 in our 60's. We shared a 4 berth cabin which we found to be more than adequate as the time on board is only overnight and there are lots of activities. Variety of eating and drinking facilities on board and varying price range. There is also the possibility of travelling with pets as they have large sand trays for their use. Duty free facilities are available as well.

Riga is the largest city, and capital, of Latvia and lies on the Gulf of Riga at the mouth of the River Daugava. Riga can trace its history back to 1201 and has an historic centre which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its Art Nouveay/Jugendstil architecture and 19th century wooden architecture. Riga has an active cultural life. The Dome Cathedral is renowned throughout the world for its acoustics and giant organ and is worth attending one of the organ music concerts regularly held in the cathedral. The city also hosts various music festivals during the summer months with music ranging from opera, jazz and rock. There are also a number of museums, exhibitions and contemporary art galleries in Riga for visitors to explore. Because of the city's excellent transport links, with good air, rail, road and sea connections, it is one of the largest tourist centres in the country.
Riga's Commercial Port sits at the heart of the city. The city's hotels, restaurants and embassies can be reached by a five-minute walk from the old town in the Vecriga area. The Passenger Terminal contains the majority of the port's services and facilities, including several shops and dining options. There are two primary passenger routes operating through the port. There is a service to Stockholm in Sweden, with a crossing time of around 17 hours.
Comprising a series of islands and located on Sweden's eastern coast, Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and remains one of the world's most beautiful and appealing cities. It is home to many picture-postcard scenes and endless buildings in shades of terracotta. Stockholm's skyline shimmers in the waters of Lake Mälaren and enjoys rich, blue summer skies, whilst in the winter, the city is covered is crisp snow and scattered with lights. Stockholm has become an extremely modern city and known for its cutting-edge designs, fashion and exceptional nightlife, although the city has managed to preserve its roots within the Old Town area known as the Gamla Stan, where you can quite easily lose yourself in history. This labyrinth of winding cobbled streets is based around the Stortorget (Big Square), while lying to the south and on a further island, the Södermalm offers a definite bohemian vibe, with many art galleries and historic residences, and a sumptuous waterfront lined with hills.
From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations in Finland, Russia and the Baltic States.
