  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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!

  5. Looking forward to cruising this 2021. When this pandemic ends, people will definitely start cruising again, no doubt about that.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Great outlook! I agree that there is no use brooding over the past. It's always nice to be flexible. This might just be a bump in the road but you can definitely learn from it. This is not permanent and we'll definitely get back to cruising and travelling in the future, hopefully soon!
  10. I'd probably just wait it out instead of filing a dispute since the cruise line agreed to give you a full refund. I don't think filing a dispute would expedite the refund process of the cruise line either.
  11. True. That's why you have to choose a well-established tour operator. A company that has been around longer would definitely still be in business after this crisis.
  12. I agree that now is the best time to book for your future tours. Those who rescheduled their cruise for next year should plan ahead and book for their shore excursions as well. Travel companies have the lowest rates now and when everything gets back to normal, prices will certainly go up too.
  13. Interesting idea. Totally beneficial and risk-free for the consumers. Though it might be really hard to implement and and to get different companies to participate. Some companies might get more advantage and end up getting more revenue than the others.
  14. I wish everyone takes this health crisis seriously! I mean they can do whatever they want if it will only affect them but they are putting everyone else at risk with their irresponsible ways. How hard it is to just stay home, really?
  15. This is just a bump in the road and things will eventually get better. We'll enjoy all the things we used to enjoy with greater appreciation that we get to experience and enjoy cruising again. Don't get discouraged, you'll never know how fun and exciting cruising is unless you try it at least once.
