Our Baltic cruise on the Norwegian Sun at the end of July was fabulous. The embarking process in Copenhagen was easy in a controlled way. Our cabin was outside on the upper deck and although it was small, it was comfortable and very clean; our steward was really nice and was very attentive. We enjoyed the freestyle dining idea, it was easier and meant we didn’t have to worry about the time we ate. The food wasn’t the best at times but the two main restaurants were lovely and the staff all very nice. The Garden Cafe was too busy most of the time to get a seat and we couldn’t go outside as the weather wasn’t good enough. The pool was in a bit of a state and needed a bit of upgrading. The entertainment was fantastic and we enjoyed all the shows we went to. We used the facilities a couple of times and the classes were good, as was the gym. The ship called at Warnemunde, Tallinn, St Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t that great but it didn’t spoil our holiday. We walked round the little fishing village of Warnemunde and it was so pretty and so relaxing. There were grey skies in some of the ports and some fog out at sea but it lifted after a day or two. We booked a couple of excursions, a day tour in St Petersburg and Stockholm and we had a great time, the guides were knowledgeable and a good laugh. The other ports we did on our own as we were told they were easy without the guides. All in all we had a great time on the cruise, we would recommend it and we would go back.

The breakfast and lunch in the Garden Cafe was chaotic and too busy, bad layout!

I would reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for Couples.
