Pros: We had a great time on this cruise with our teenager in a triple room (bunk bed). We loved the itinerary and would highly recommend Costa for the Baltic Sea! The staterooms were very nice. The ship was clean and well-maintained. Overall, the staff was very helpful. The food at New York, New York was very good and the service was excellent. We had no problems getting on or off the boat from excursions. Muster station exercise was organized. We had no problems with people smoking. Minor maintenance issues that cropped up were taken care of within an hour. We are moderate drinkers and were very happy that we did not buy the package. Bottled water was included with our dinner. We shared a carafe of wine at dinner and it was very reasonable. Buffet lines were not too long for breakfast. Singers were very good. Cons: site stated that we would be stopping in Denmark. Costa site stated it was an at-sea day. (which it was) Lido deck and restaurants were decorated like a Carnival cruise. (who knew?) Other than the singers, the entertainment was not exactly top notch. We stopped going. Disappointed that the pizza wasn't better. "Venus Beauty Spa" no-showed every activity on the Lido deck that we attempted to participate in. Boo! Teen zone activities were "eh"-but our teen isn't really a joiner anyway. My teen was disappointed that there wasn't a free soft-serve ice cream machine. (He did catch on to ordering double desserts.)  Overall: great cruise experience. Would cruise with Costa again!

Gdansk was the best surprise of the cruise. Beautiful city. You don't need an excursion here. Just take a taxi and take the free city tour.

Super glad that we got to come into the city port and use the tender boats into old town. Wish we had stayed a night here instead of Klaipeda. Just sayin.
