Overall thing wer going well. The television had a tendency to stop and start at random, but that was minor. Crew was efficient and friendly. Food was very good. Leaving St Petersburg noticed that a Costa ship had passed us shortly after leaving port. When we awoke we were not in Tallinn and the Captain announced the engine problem. From there things quickly went down hill. Everything the capt and other officers told us was quite simply not completely accurate.

Noticed that the company told one site that we were offered an opportunity to fly to

Bergen to finish our cruise. Yes, we were offered, but that offer was unilaterally rescinded by the company the next mornig. Yesterday one couple in our group was told in the late afternoon to have their bags in the hallway by 10 p.m. And prepare to disembark at 4 a.m. the morning.
