There is a reason that the vast majority of cruises spend 2 days in St Petersburg. It is because there is so much to see. You say in your post that you want to do a 'one day tour taking in the...

You rarely see kids on river cruises and only few, if any, teenagers. While at least your girls would have each other for company, I'm afraid they might be bored. Because river cruise ships are...

They are agents. Personally, I always prefer to deal direct with the tour operator.

Glad that you found a company that suited you and had a great time. You are quite correct in saying that cruisingexcursions.com is just an agent. The problem with agents is that the quality of a...

Well, I'm not sure why you would expect anyone to be reassured by your review, when you weren't reassured by the 200 positive reviews and photographs on Trip Advisor!

We like meeting new people at dinner. What we don't like is dining with the same people night after night, which is why we don't do traditional dining. And if we fancy being on our own one night,...

I don't think he was making a point about spelling at all. In the UK, if you say 'I don't know about such and such, but...' you are often just calling attention to an additional point that needs to...

Note that London (Southampton) is very misleading. Southampton is 75 miles from London. You aren't very likely to find a cruise which actually goes to London, they are few and far between.

Norwegian woollen goods are usually of high quality and very hard-wearing. They make nice gifts but they're often very heavy which can be a problem if you're restricted for weight flying home.

Marazul is right. 14 carat gold is unusual in Europe, including UK. Cheap and cheerful jewellery is 9 carat, more expensive stuff is 18 carat, with 22 carat common for wedding rings.
