  1. Another vote for Alla, but I think all of the well-known companies would do as good a job. Link to my detailed Baltic cruise review is my signature line, and this has details of our Alla tour in St. Petersburg (and Moscow), if you are interested. The Baltic has been our favourite cruise itinerary so far. Enjoy!
  2. The water is glassy smooth -- looks like a lake, but this is a memorable sunset sailing the Inside Passage to Alaska on the Solstice, May of 2015.
  3. Thanks for this advice; it is much appreciated.
  4. Thanks so much for that -- I am happy to be wrong about the surcharge. This sounds like it would be the best option for us. I may check on my roll call and see if anyone is interested in sharing. Would you recommend trying to set up the taxi tour in advance, or would we be likely to find drivers waiting at about 8:30 on a Saturday morning in May?
  5. I am also arriving on the Summit in May and am interested in this topic. Does anyone know if the blue flag taxi tour rate would be higher on a Saturday? I have heard that regular taxi rates could be 50% higher on Saturdays than week days. Thanks.
  6. Thanks for taking the time to put together this very interesting and useful review. I am loving the photos, especially those gorgeous evening shots of the ship and the sunset.
  7. Thank you Norris and Carol for dropping in on the Celebrity boards and providing us with this wonderful travelogue. Amazing photos as always. I am showing them to DH who has thus far been reluctant to consider Norway. I love your sense of humour and this has to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen on Cruise Critic. Stopped me in my tracks and had me laughing out loud. Safe travels to you on your future cruises. Flam (pronounced Flom. The J is silent and invisible)
  8. Well, we followed you to the Baltic and now I am thinking we have to follow in your footsteps again for South America. Thanks for taking the time and trouble to post all of your fantastic photos and insider tips. Notes are being taken!
  9. Thanks for this excellent review. I am so sad that the forward outdoor deck area is no longer available for the common folk. Not sure how much of a difference it will make to my overall experience, but I did not know about this when booking a Bermuda cruise for next May, so I am disappointed. Thanks for taking time to post all the great photos; following and looking forward to more.
