Cruisin' with Ruben and the Jets

We went on a cruise! Sort of.

Your correspondents, as always tirelessly seeking the most essential and authentic cultural experiences, sailed on the SS Romantika across the Baltic Sea and back. The journey takes 15 hours or so each way, so basically, one sails from Riga overnight on a Friday, has six hours in Stockholm, and then an overnight return.

The ship is big and has lots of amenities, but it's not all-inclusive or decked out with a climbing wall, so I guess it's not like a true full-service cruise. This lovely shot taken from the deck as we sailed down the Daugava from Riga.
