The sail in to Geiranger - July 2018 - aboard Koningsdam

 

Incredible peace and beauty. We had perfect weather that trip.

We loved Norway last year . We didn't have the pleasure of a sail in or out but we hired a guide in Alesund who drove us to Geiranger .

You're welcome . We haven't had a Pinnacle Suite yet but we've got the Neptune bug . Wow that looks like quite a line at Catherine's Palace .

 It was a huge line, but we had booked a private tour guide and driver for 2 days and never stood in a line.  She was fantastic, ran us until we couldn't go any more, gave us more info than we could ever have thought of.  Even a back door tour of the Hermitage where, again, the lines were so long.  Had we not booked with her, the first line of the day would mean we would see only that site that day.  We are sooooooo glad we booked a private tour guide and driver for this port!

We love Saint Petersburg and private guides and did so on our last visit there last year on the Zuiderdam . We have stayed in SPB with a Visa 3 times but the cruise last year kind of last minute and we didn't have time to get one . We used Tours by Locals and boy we we surprised when they picked us up .

One of favorite ports was Saint Petersburg . Here the fountains are coming on at Peterhof 

 

 

 

We also enjoyed a helicopter flight there

Love St Petersburg!   Because we had visited before,  Viktoria of SPB tours arranged a behind the scenes tour of those fountains!   It was really interesting to see how they worked.

Here are two photos from a 2008 cruise on Ryndam to the Western Caribbean, (I know its a little old), but still one of my favorites.  the first is from Tikal in the jungles of Guatemala and the second is from a Myan site near Belize City.  Funny Story about the photo from Tikal, we had to photoshop out an Aussie Girl who photobombed the original, then we couldn't get a clear background again because of people wandering behind us.  Can anybody pick out the area that was shopped?

Looks fine to me.  I have that same red print shirt, which looks best when HAL launders and presses it.

We did 3 cruises last year and all were excellent.  Now, with all that is happening, we realize how lucky and blessed we were!
