We each enjoyed a variety of positive experiences on the ship and on our private tours,We did not experience many of the pit falls we heard about from others on their Princess tours since our were arranged by Plan it for you at hot mail dot com. They did our tours when we sailed Holland America in the Mediterranean last summer hence we used the again. Never a problem with them will use them again. I hate to do the work, I recognize others enjoy spending their time on tour selection, its not for me.
The Trivia contests were uniquelly difficult :), the lecture/workshops were very good. I do not have photoshop at home but the person giving the lessons was easy to follow and understand. I did not participate in the Journal entry sessions but heard they were very good also. We did not experience the negatives I read about in other reviews but have noticed a drop in attention to detail and WOW what a drop in entertainment talent.
I would do this tour again but feel from I have been hearing about Disney which is now cruising the Baltic I would give them a try. Dave is very funny, bright and full on information. You see
