  1. As long as you really want to go, don't let him stop you. Give him all the numbers to contact your just in case. And if he doesn't like you travelling alone, tell him to go with you!
  2. HI, First congrats on your anniversary. In my opinion you should also look at the more luxury cruise lines. They might be a bit pricier but more is included. So create a list what is important for you. And because you don't really know what you would like, a travel agent specialized in cruises would be a good idea. Once you have a more specific idea, you can ask us again and we would all be happy to help! Good Luck
  3. Yes you need to have the US passport. Maybe just try to call NCL, you never know. But I would not get your hopes up. And DO NOT stop looking for the box! Good Luck!
  4. HI, if you really like to explore on your own you will need a visa. And as others mentioned before, i would not recommend it either. Maybe if you really want to "explore" it would be an idea to contact a local travel agent if they can suggest something. (then you wont need a visa). For both our Baltic tours we booked a customized tours in St Petersburg. It might be worth while to contact them, we loved Anastasia Travel. I am sure they can answer all your questions and help you decide.
  5. I have spent the majority of our cruise on the balcony. Yes it was cold but blankets were provided and a good cup of hot chocolate really warms you up! We spotted a lot of wild life.
  6. Hi, I agree with trosebery, There are many travel agents with whom you can book tours. For us we got in contact with Anastasia Travel and after our first conversation, I knew I had found the one for us. Easy communication, answers to all of my many questions and excellent suggestions. We end up customizing a 2-day tour which we truly enjoyed. Make sure the visa situation is covered. Enjoy your time there!
  7. We always bring a cup that can hold hot and cold drinks. And mostly I use it to keep my coffee hot.
  8. Hi, just look into all places where you want to go and take note of what you like to do/see. All cruise ports in the Caribbean have also local travel agents. And if you are able you could even do it all by yourself. And a good tip was given already before; do not take the taxi at the gate. Walk a little futher away and the prices will be more reasonable.
  9. Hi, when we were in St Petersburg last we did a customized private tour. The first day arriving we had a "relaxing" breakfast. Most of the passengers left very early and got stuck in immigration. Our travel agent already told us they could only meet us a little later. After the crowd died down, we went out and our local guide was already waiting. A perfect beginning to a fully packed 2-day tour. I loved the Fabergé museum. (Thanks to our tour organizer, Anastasia Travel) cause I didn’t think about it until they mentioned it and that we should not miss it. At night we went to the Folklore show. The guide was very nice and I loved all the stories about life in Russia.
  10. I love the Navigator but haven't booked a cruise on her for a while. Now I am getting excited.. tonight I look at the itinerary and convince husband we need another cruise!! Happy to say the convincing part is easy, we both love to cruise!
  11. Haha, who would even want to drink from a fountain with statues? Always use your common sense.
  12. Sorry we have not used that tour company. We did spend time in Geiranger. What tour are you thinking of?
  13. Keep the questions coming😉, that is why we have cruisecritc!!!
  14. I believe nothing is ever for free, its most likely to be included in the total price. But is sure feels good, that when you book Regent and you get "free" business class tickets. Its a good start or any cruise and I love Regent for it!
  15. For bookings in the restaurants. If what you are able to book online is not really to your liking. Maybe no table for two or different timing. Then go as soon as you arrive on-board to the reservation desk, so they can change it if there is anything available. Sometimes they offer you the embarkation day also as extra cause they like to fill the seats. To get extra reservations, you can also pass by the restaurant just before you go for dinner... They might have an opening. But for a second reservation you need to be flexible with sharing and time slot. Or you book a master suite... then you can eat there every night or get it served in your suite!!
