Review summary

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.

Ship tip

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.

Ports of call

Stockholm, Sweden
