We did a royal caribbean cruise to the blatic some years ago at the end of July. weather is unpredicatable in the Baltic. The cruis ebefore ours was wet etc but we had a hest wave. Take a mixture of clothing so that you can increase or decrease the layers, It was a fabulous cruise and experience. June Horbur.

The reason you are getting conflicting reports is because the weather is not a constant. Generally it is slightly warmer than here but you will soon be close enough, in time, to check out the 10 day forecasts for some of the earliest ports of call and if you take this as a mean it will give you a good idea. There are many weather stations on the net including the BBC. Enjoy Neil Dow.

We went on the Jewel of the Seas at exactly the same time last year. We had really good weather, not exceptionally hot but warm and sunny. However assume the weather will be much like UK, possibly variable, so take sweaters just in case. Remember its about as far north as the Shetland Islands Bria.

Hello George, we went to the Baltic this time last year, departed 19th August on Arcadia. The weather was brilliant, warm and sunny, although a little chilly in the evenings, bearing in mind the ship is generally sailing overnight. We have been on three cruises and the Baltic cruise was the best one we have been on. Enjoy. Christine. New Milto.

We went in June last year and was expecting quite low temperatures - it ended up being really hot - 80+ some days. I would take a mixture of stuff - make sure you have some shorts and tshirts and swimwear, but also a couple of sweaters too just in case!

In June this year it was 83 when we were in Oslo, almost as hot in Copenhagen, low 70's in St Petersburg and decidedly cold and windy in Tallin a couple of days later - so definitely take a mixture. For the first half of our cruise it was hotter than the UK was experiencing.

We did the Baltic cruise in August and the weather was extremely warm. In fact, St Petersburg was absolutely blistering. I would recommend bringing nothing heavier than a medium jumper...just in case you get a cool evening. The only place it rained was Oslo, but it was a light rain and the temperature was still about 21 degrees.

We are Premier League

By Haydn Jones

Although my first great love is Cruising………..my second is football, my beloved Cardiff City to be precise! I’m thinking maybe I should have put my wife and children in here somewhere but they will understand! As a season ticket holder i’ve been a little distracted over the last few weeks as we have been fighting for the second automatic promotion spot to the Premier League! It’s been a close fought battle with Fulham and it went down to the very last game...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
