Hi Fran,

Thank you once again for your input.
Your information is very much appreciated.

You are so right about the cruise director. When we docked in St Petersburg, I had developed an awful cough(like many others on the boat).

We asked cruise director for directions to a local pharmacy.She not only supplied directions, but wrote out in Russian the problem and what we needed. I was very thankful for that. Hope you have a wonderful time on your Viking cruise.
