Just a quick review of the Oceania Marina Scandinavian Ballads 10 day cruise:

While we have been on over 30 cruises, this was our first on Oceania. All in all, it truly exceeded our expectations due to the extraordinary food and overall service. The food is by far the best we have had on a cruise and due to that fact, we will definitely cruise Oceania again. The service and attentiveness was unequalled in all the cruises we have done. We typically sail in smaller ships but we noted that even though this ship held 1,200 passengers, we never felt crowded or rushed.

A couple of specifics:

Port Reviews

Stockholm

Vasa Museum and Old Town were great but be careful of the restaurants in Old Town! We got charged extra to split a pizza between the 2 of us for lunch! I plan to do a review on Trip Advisor on this restaurant.

Tallinn

Great port! Very enjoyable to stroll around and then sit in the square and have a beer and people watch.

Helsinki

Not an impressive port in our opinion.

Gdansk (Warsaw)

This is a great town to walk around and get a small tour. They also have some good restaurants that are very reasonable in price.
