Overall a great cruise! Fantastic! We were very happy and gained a few pounds :)

The only negative we have is that the juice drinks are from concenrate, and the orange juice tasted very "syrup-y". I saw one of the staff replacing the orange juice one time with a box called "Orange Drink". That pretty much says it all.

We had the smallest room, but it was good. The staff who cleaned the room were fantastic, attentive and worked very hard.

The entertainment wasn't great, especially the music numbers. However, the "enrichment" talks were excellent, bringing experts to talk about history, art, etc. we just wished they were longer and went into more in detail, instead of just chopped down to an hour!

We did most of our own excursions because they were too pricey through Celebrity. If you don't want to pay the high price, just look online for alternatives. There are many for St. Petersburg, for example, such as Red October or DenRus (which we used and they were excellent!)

The Baltic cruise is great, as it allows you to see a lot of history, architecture, art, etc. in a short amount of time. Cruising really is the way to visit many cities comfortably and with just enough time to see the most important sites. We would do it again!

It should be noted that, although we are a young couple, this is not necessarily a trip for families or young couples. The majority of the people on the boat were 50+, but we had a great time even though we were not necessarily in our age group.
