Took the first baltic cruise in the spring. The sights and stops made were wonderful especially Stockholm.  If I was to do this again I would go later in the year as our temperatures were between 3 and 13 degrees celsius. As a result of the cooler temperatures the upper decks and pool were not used.  I would highly recommend that passenger arrange for a private tour when in 'St. Petersburg rather than taking the tours with Celebrity.  Fellow passengers that did this had a much better experience than we did and no issues with the visa requirements.  Most of the other stops have a hop on hop off bus available at the port which is a good option.  Shows in the theatre were great but i found the food was a little disappointing.

Brenda our room steward was excellent and the bathrooms are a good size

Ship Tip

The state rooms are beautiful and the staff is excellent. The drink package is nice but we do not drink enough to make the normal uncharge worth the cost. The previous time we crushed on this ship the meals in the dining room were slightly better. I would say the food was good but not excellent.
