Great time, awesome staff!

In response to review, Vian says ...

Can you please comment on whether you experienced rough seas on this Baltic sea cruise? I am very prone to sea sickness, but many have reassured me that the Baltic tends to be calm? And how much time was spent traveling on the open sea vs. at port? Thank you in advance!

One of the reasons we chose this cruise was due to the amount of time spent on land!  We were not enthused about the idea spending multiple days in a row at sea (although I will admit we ended up enjoying our time on board way more than we expected to!).  The trip only has two sea days and they are spread out early in the trip and one on the last day before you get back to Copenhagen.  The rest of the days are spent from around 8AM until 4PM out in the cities and then each evening you get back on the boat and travel at night to your next port.

As far the the sea, I found it to be quite calm.  I have never been on a cruise before, so I don't have a reference point, but mostly very smooth sailing.  Obviously everything is weather contingent, and we did have one night with some rain and wind, and you could feel the boat swaying a bit, but overall a smooth and easy trip.  Hope this was helpful!

Thank you for posting your review. Sounds like you had a fabulous time!

To the person asking about rough seas, it is really difficult to compare sailing where the sea is concerned, especially when asking one person for information. It changes every moment. You may find more information doing an Internet search using the words -> Baltic Sea rough. I just did this and got a lot of results.  Also, be sure to pay attention to cruises that have taken place in the same time span that you are cruising.

  I would also recommend you look into how many of the ports dock and how many ports drop anchor and use a launch to shuttle you from the ship to the shore.   Chances are if your going to get sea sick it will be on the small launch more then on the cruise ship.

If you research and find it is calm seas most of the time in that area still get RX meds to take.   You never know when a storm can cause the sea to get rough.

I have done the Mediterranean and Aegean Sea's and both were smooth as glass on a Solstice class ship in November but we had clear weather on those cruises.
