Good Baltic itinerary

Sail Date: Jul 2018

We chose this Baltic cruise because we liked the 10 day itinerary, with only 2 sea days and starting and ending in Copenhagen.

We thought our balcony room was in excellent condition, with fresh paint, nice bedding and carpeting and a sofa bed in good condition. In the public areas everything had been redone with blue and teal furnishings, and it all looked nice. The ship is older with not a lot of razzmatazz but we knew this ahead of time. The entertainment was mediocre at best-we liked the Billboard piano hits the best, the BBKing music was always too loud to enjoy, and the main stage events were mostly acceptable if unexciting.

We enjoyed an American Test Kitchen event and went to a wine tasting. Other than that we did not pursue any onboard activities. We like the open promenade on deck 3 for walking around the outside of the ship.

Port Reviews


excellent place to tour on your own, and stay overnight before and after cruise. Loved Tivoli at night


great to walk to town on your own and explore by yourself for a few hours

St. Petersburg

Did a tour with SPB tours-fantastic. do the Faberge evening tour as an extra-well worth it


Took a taxi directly to Vasa (great transport option) and toured with their guide, watched movie, wonderful to see, walked back to town across the bridge -easy and quick, went to changing of the guard, and Gamla Stan, taxi back to port


took shuttle bus to town, very convenient and economical.

Great Town to explore on your own. Go to the Church of the Rock, can walk there through the main sights


took the HAL Bus to Lubeck-pricey but the only convenient time option,

Highly recommend Lubeck for an old German Town with beautiful architecture and easy to walk around on your own

Rostock (Warnemunde)

SPB Berlin-the 3 hour bus ride did not feel too long, and if you want a tour of Berlin, this full day excursion is the way to go
