On a Princess Cruise trip to Baltic Sea, passengers are always informed about the next destination on a daily newsletter. I was familiar with all the cities mentioned in the itinerary, except Warnemünde. I purposely didn’t search any information about it, hoping that it would be a pleasant surprise.
