  1. We have yet to see what precautionary measures the cruise lines will adapt to ensure the health and safety of everyone on board. Hopefully when cruising resumes, everyone will strictly follow the protocols. Really hoping we can all go back to travelling and cruising!
  2. Wow, looks like an awesome experience! Hopefully I can try this when I visit Russia again. Maybe a proper trip to Russia instead of a Baltic cruise again.
  3. Totally up to you. Tip whatever amount you feel like giving and whenever you wish to give it. Tipping in advance could probably make the crew even more enthusiastic to fulfill your requests, though they've always been very helpful and enthusiastic in their jobs in my experience.
  4. You'll receive your refund, just give them some time. They are probably going through the processing of a lot of refunds with limited manpower.
  5. Toured with Anastasia Travel too! Loved everything about the tour plus the customer service right from the booking phase is just excellent. The whole tour is just beautifully prepared and executed. I could honestly say that it was one of the best, if not the best private tour that we have ever booked.
  6. I love really small, private group tours, something with a maximum of 10 persons in a group. I enjoy the tour better and I feel like I am fully immersed in the tour. It might be on the more expensive side but it's a better experience over all. I stumbled upon this video and I thought it might be helpful to anyone who's undecided on what to choose and book:
  7. A lot of local tour companies are offering affordable rates now so you can start asking around. Make sure to ask about their refund policy if you decide to book as early as now.
  8. You might want to try doing some classes, a cooking class or Matryoshka painting class would be interesting and fun. You shouldn't miss a ballet show while in St. Petersburg. Hopefully there will be available shows when you visit.
  9. As much as possible we stay away from the ship's excursions and always go for local tour operators in the destination. I don't want to waste a lot of money with touring with a big group and we always feel rushed!
  10. Something to look forward to for your Baltic trip: Received this lovely update from Anastasia Travel. We used their services when we visited last May 2019. I'd love to go back and visit again sometime next year. See how things change after the pandemic is over. Stay safe everyone!

  12. Looking forward to cruising this 2021. When this pandemic ends, people will definitely start cruising again, no doubt about that.
  13. When this global health crisis ends and cruise lines start to operate again, I am still positive that customers will come back and start cruising again. It might not be instantly, but people will eventually consider cruising again. Well, after being home quarantined for a long time and being deprived of going out, people would definitely want to travel again.
  14. Definitely depends on which ports you'll be visiting. If you have the option to visit St. Petersburg for 3 days then I'll choose that itinerary.
  15. I agree that instead of cancelling, you are better off rescheduling your cruise or tour. Hopefully the situation gets better soon so we can all go back to cruising and traveling in no time. Can't wait to be back on cruise!
