Voyage to St Petersburg
Destination: Baltic Sea
But the main event was the visit to St Petersburg and this was excellent. We booked a tour on the internet with Alla Tours of St P and had 2 fascinating days with a small group and a wonderful guide. You can only see a very small part of this beautiful city and I More will certainly go back to explore it again.
Other tours - Copenhagen and Gothenburg were rushed and, for what we saw, not good value for money. Stockholm was lovely with a delightful guide - so much depends on weather, who the guide is and traffic conditions.
The drinks on board were expensive and the 15% service charge made things worse! A very ordinary bottle of wine would be over $30 - on our last cruise on Fred Olsen's Braemar, drinks were much more reasonable without the service charge. But I suppose we could become teatotal for the duration!
All in all a very good cruise which I can recommend. Less
