Dual embarkation/debarkation ports not a good idea

We planned the 9 day Baltic Sea cruise leaving form Warnemunde, Germany. We did not realize that the cruise actually started a day earlier in Copenhagen. So all f the ship itinerary was based on the Copenhagen passengers. We did not get welcome activities etc. On our sailing there were high winds which delayed the ship getting into port and so we got on one day late and missed a day of the cruise and then they cancelled the stop in Tallin, Estonia. Food in main dining areas is average at best. Felt like we were asked to pay extra for everything. Would prefer to pay a higher price for the cruise and have everything included (except alcohol of course). Cabin steward did the bare minimum, didn't even get towel animals the last two nights. The guaranteed tip program effects the overall service definitely. The ports we saw were nice and the excursions were good. The ice bar was very cold but a lot of fun. The Atrium is too small to be the main focus for on board activities. We did enjoy the rope course and rock wall. Mini golf was cute but hard to play.
