Review summary

The Baltic is an area of the world I am glad to finally visit. And overall traveling with Oceania is quite a joy. Had a few hiccups this time. Probably will do another cruise with them in the future.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Easy and Smooth - We were one of the first on board in Copenhagen

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Overall very good. Our only disappointment remains the Polo specialty restaurant for the 2nd time in a row. We found the grill on the Terrace Lounge better!!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We did not use most of the on board activities

Entertainment

We did not attend any of the entertainment.

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Overall quite good. However, on day of disembarkation, had severe delay due to plumbing issue which took over an hour for service to be provided.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Yes as always. One concern from a safety point are the elevators. Doors close and do not retract very easily when an object (i.e. passenger) interferes.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Have had this size and configuration on our 3rd Oceania cruise. Larger bathroom (versus Nautica) was nice to have.

Ship tip

Probably better to stay in the mid to back of the ship due to proximity to restaurants (on 5th and 12th floors)

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

5 out of 5
Not with Oceania. We did our own 3 day tour of Copenhagen and Zeeland.

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

2 out of 5
Too far away from any areas of interest.

Ronne, Bornholm, Denmark

1 out of 5
Very disappointed with excursion. Think it would have been better just to explore Ronne.

Visby, Sweden

1 out of 5
Not Oceania's fault but could not dock due to weather. However, we had no plans for an excursion anyway.

Klaipeda, Lithuania

3 out of 5
Was took our own excursion to Kaunas which was fascinating.

Riga, Latvia

5 out of 5
Unexpectedly beautiful and worth the stop.

Helsinki, Finland

5 out of 5
The excursion was terrific.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
Did 5 excursions in 2 days. Quite exhausting but fabulous.

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
Another unexpected gem.

Stockholm, Sweden

3 out of 5
Spent 3 days here after disembarkation, including time with family (cousins)

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
One of our bags was lost during the process! Luckily, it was later found at another hotel in Stockholm. Not sure how this happened.
