Having cruised to the Baltic before we thought that a trip of only 8 days would be sufficient. This however turned out to be a mistake. Joining the ship in Copenhagen and disembarking in Stockholm meant that we missed out on 2 very attractive destinations. Oceania's tour prices are exorbitant which reduced the trips we made particularly in St Petersburg having already been to most of the highlight venues and being unwilling to pay such large sums for second visits. My overall rating of 4 stars really is a reflection of the Marina itself. All of the crew were so pleasant and helpful and our Concierge level stateroom was excellent. Oceania's food is renowned and lived up to it's reputation. My advice to anyone booking a Baltic cruise would by all means use this cruise line but pick an itinerary that covered a longer period with more ports of call.

The example quoted in the questionnaire could have been written by me! Anyone sailing on the Marina can expect a lovely ship with good accommodation and first rate food. Both the latter on a par with Cunard's Princess Grill suites. On board activities are very limited however.
