Baltic Blast in Eclipse

Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Southampton

We sailed from Southampton,embarkation was well organised,giving us time to explore this lovely boat.

BLU restaurant-The service,food were excellent at all times.

QSINE-we did not like this-too gimmicky,with an over enthusiastic waiter who appeared to enjoy the experience far more than we did-food was ok-will not revisit on next cruise.

CABIN-We were in an Aquaclass cabin,which was just about big enough,could have had more storage space.Very comfortable bed,with good TV and sound system in the cabin.

BARS-good selection of Bars.

DRINKS-over-priced,with a 15% tip added on everything-too much,as you should tip after service-not before it.We did opt for the premium drink package,which seemed to be good value.

EXCURSIONS-Shuttles expensive,the Russians(St Petersburg)must be the most unhappy people in the world-no smiles or laughter heard from the locals.Tallin well worth the visit,easy to walk into the town from the berth.Berlin was a More bit untidy and scruffy,with graffiti everywhere.In Finland,visit Porvoo,it is pleasant 16th Century village in lovely countryside.Not enough time in Stockholm-but £6.50 for a pint of Carlsberg!!!!!

Good cruise,very clean boat Less

Cabin review: A11596 AquaClass 1

Our cabin and balcony was overshadowed by a protruding structure which shut out the daytime sunshine-balcony could have been larger. Bed very comfortable,with good storage space underneath for cases

Port and Shore Excursions

Very busy,with 5 other boats in Port.Copenhagen itself was mobbed everywhere,with lots of roadworks in the city-best to walk if you can

Clean and efficient

Nice approach to docks,very clean.It was 3 hours in each direction to Berlin,with very average snacks on the bus.In the Berlin restaurant,we asked for some more fried potatoes(8 at table),but were told that "there is only one plate of potatoes a table!!"

Miserable customs-they do not make you feel welcoming at all.Modern port facilities

Very pleasant,good organisation at all times

Nice place,wonderful old buildings
