Baltic Cruise

I would LOVE for Disney Cruise Line to bring back the Baltic cruise in the itineraries!! Scandinavian and Baltic ports of call... YES PLEASE!!!

Out of curiosity, who would also be interested in this itinerary? Have some of you had the chance to go when it was offered?

I was hoping for a Baltic cruise in summer 2014 for our honeymoon but settled on a med cruise. I'm sure we will love it but I would've loved a Baltic even more! I'm crossing my fingers that they'll bring it back someday!

We chose paying for a wedding instead of the Baltics, not realizing they would disappear. I'm glad we had the wedding, but I would very much like the Baltics to come back (in the same year as we could afford it)!

Count us in the very bummed group. We were really hoping for a return to the Baltics. I'm kicking myself for not going before.

We did the 12 night Baltic that included Helsinki. It really was an amazing trip - slowly sailing in and out of the Oslofjord, and watching the sun set at 11:15pm over St. Petersburg from the top deck of the ship (on the only port I've ever stayed at overnight) are two experiences I'll never forget.

We did the Baltic cruise and it was wonderful. The scenery while sailing was amazing.

It was one of our top cruises. A sub surfaced near us and that was really cool to see

The Baltic itinerary is the one I'm the most interested in, but as much as I'd really love to go, I think it would likely end up being too cost prohibitive. A girl can dream, though....

We too were SO disappointed yesterday when the Baltic was not included in the new itineraries. Hopefully, 2015.

We are disappointed as well. We are still hoping that Disney will return to the Baltics......

I had so looked forward to the Baltic cruises offered previously and really planned to book one until I saw the pricing (even on opening day)!! Pricing on even an inside cabin was ridiculous (>$7K) plus the expenses of airline, etc. I was able to take that and book the WBTA that year along with a separate 7-day!! Still wish I could have gone but don't regret my decision. Had the best time on the WBTA!!

When you say prices were above 7K, that was for 2 persons right?

And how did you like the transatlantic? How was the long stretch at sea?

If DCL ever plans another cruise to the Baltic we will be among the first guests to reserve our cabin.

We were told the year after the Baltic cruise while on board one of the ships that that cruise did not make money. I guess if we ask for it, include it in the survey they give out at the end of the cruise, they might just bring it back. I remember asking them to bring back the Med cruise in 2009 and they offered it again 2010!
