We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and able to add on Iceland. We were able to visit a number of ports in the Baltic and also visit Iceland for a few days. We had a deluxe veranda. Also we had a few days with drizzle, we had a great time. Iceland and the inner circle, Gulfvoss Falls and the Blue Lagoon was great. We flew to Bergen and got on the ship for the cruise travelling to Norway, Denmark, Denmark, Estonia, Poland, Russia, Finland and Sweden. The Baltic is beautiful and although enjoyed the history in that region and all the cities, we especially enjoyed Norway, Denmark, Poland and Russia. On the ship, the staff was especially to our needs. Any place we chose to dine was excellent and we tried them all more than once. Chef's Table is food and wine pairing with smaller proportions and the menu changes every 3 days. Manfredi's is the Italian restaurant on the ship and anything on the menu is good. I especially enjoyed the steak tartare, mussels and steak which was a specialty. Any night we were at Manfredi's, someone at the table had the steak and raved about it. The Restaurant was the regular dining room and the food there was also excellent. I loved the Norwegian Poached Salmon. The World Cafe had not like other buffets and is a must; besides the night's specialties, there was always an assortment of sushi, sashimi, shrimp and crab claws.
Cabin was well thought out for use of space and storage. Balcony had a table and two chairs with enough room.
