Baltic 2016

August 2016

Estonia; Germany, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark

Pros: 1-itinerary & shore excursions were intriguing, historical & interesting; 2- life boat drill on first day didn't have to bring or wear life jackets; 3-stateroom was ready upon arrival; 4-2 laundry days @ cost of $20 bag which was convenient for 10 day cruise; 5- Capt was outstanding in narration in each port about history, highlight + development of country & city; 6- availability of different speciality restaurant along w/dining package' 7-Melodic Trio entertaining music at Atrium

Cons: 1-ship tour was offered on first day but very BIG, about 50 people w/ only 1 staff w/not microphone ; 2- mandatory life boat drill was confusing in checking in stateroom # & didn't go over rooms that show...we were there but received a letter that didn't go so clarified it w/guest services, other cruise lines go repeat #s that didn't go; 3- sometimes order of food at some restaurants were not accurate either not right order or substituted w/o telling customer; 4- bius for shore excursions need to reserve seats for handicapped as sometimes had to sit in back; 5- tour guides need microphones at different ports for shore excursions; 6-some of staff on board not enthuse, interested in what their duties/activities, for example we attended 2 classes while w/only about 2-3 passengers attending & staff leader wasn't happy that we showed up; gave us the kit & that was it
