  1. We used Tours by Locals in St Petersburg. Svetlana was our guide and Vlad our driver. We were a group of 4 and were able to customize our tour to meet our needs and desires. We saw everything the larger tours did but were able to add Jewish elements to the tour. She also took us to two fabulous restaurants for lunch. The two days with Svetlana were the best tour we have ever taken. We have used Tours by Locals in many cities and never been disappointed. They are more expensive because of the small group size, but so worth it!!
  2. We have sailed with Happy Happy several times. He is from Cartagena and we have enjoyed getting to know him.
  3. We are booked on the Edge in October for a B2B .. the Adriatic and transatlantic. Hubby is 73 and I am 72. I have a compromised immune system and other health issues. He has his issues too. All of our excursions are booked and I was ready to book air when this all started. Have put air on hold. In some ways I think it is harder to make a decision because we do have time before final payment is due. If we were sailing this spring we would have already cancelled. Additionally, suffer from silent reflux which causes me to cough. So far, medication has not made the cough go away. I carry a letter from my physician which says I am being treated for a chronic cough, but I doubt that would be helpful in the current situation. I see the looks people give me when I cough. Even my friends are nervous being around me. Last week my travel agent suggested we wait a bit but that was before new Celebrity policy was announced. I am really torn. Cruise is months away, but I still wonder if we should cancel and take the refund. Would lose our insurance costs probably but we would have peace of mind. Any thoughts?
  4. Our travel agent has suggested cabin 7247 on the Edge. We were ready to book it until I saw the authorization form which says it is obstructed. He says it is next to the bump out. We can see directly out and look down the one side. On the other side we would see the balcony wall. Is that a problem? Has anyone been in this cabin or one like it? Thanks in advance.
  5. If points are important to you, I would do it. Changing cabins is nothing! Your cabin steward moves everything on hangars. I think once you become elite on Celebrity you become Diamond on Royal. Your points on Celebrity go on your Celebrity account.
