Review summary

Booked the cruise specifically because it should have been at sea only one day between ports of call and went to all the places in the Baltic we wanted to go to. We were advised that due to holdups entering the Kiel Canal we would miss out Stockholm (+theVasa museum) and the Kiel canal to give time to come back via the longer sea route, 3 days out at sea !!! VERY VERY DISSAPPINTING WE WOULD NOT HAVE BOOKED THE CRUISE IF WE HAD KNOWN THAT TWO OF THE HIGHLIGHTS WERE MISSING AND WE WOULD BE AT SEA 3 DAYS
