Our trip to the Baltic countries with Oceania just right!  The itinerary let us get a glimpse of several countries, but the highlight was the fact that we were able to spend 3 days exploring St. Petersburg.  The cruise was well staffed. We enjoyed both the grand dining room and the specialty themed restaurants. Both offered excellent service, and diverse menus.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Overall excellent. However, the shower stall was very small - telephone booth size. Our Cabin Steward, David, was efficient, very helpful and cheerful.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation went smoothly. Disembarkation was slow and somewhat disorganized.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
It would have been nice if there had been some lectures available.
Children's Programs We didn't use these services.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Stockholm, Sweden
We spent time in Stockholm before the cruise. It is an interesting city and well worth a couple of days visit.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Tallinn, Estonia
Klaipeda, Lithuania
Gdynia (Gdansk), Poland
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany No opinion. We didn't go ashore.
Copenhagen, Denmark
Oslo, Norway
Amsterdam, Netherlands
We spent some time here after the cruise. Enjoyed the canal boat tours.


Marina is a mid-size ship, hence has limited shopping opportunity. I developed a blister on my foot which became infected and used the medical services offered on the ship. The doctor was very good.
