  1. Yes, I did 2 RCI tours in St. Petersburg two weeks ago on Serenade. I was really worried about it as we had about 1 hour 45 minutes between tours and I had read traffic in Russia could be terrible. Everything went perfectly and the first tour kept to schedule. We even had time to reload the ship for a quick snack. I think you should be ok as you've got a good break in between too.
  2. Agreed! I couldn't get it to work once on Serenade two weeks ago during our cruise. It kept asking me to buy an internet package or download the app (which was already on my phone!). It didn't really matter in the end and tbh it was nice to just leave my phone on the cabin most nights!!
  3. Yes it's lovely. I lived in Leith about 10 minute walk away for years and visited a few times and always love it. It's interesting to see how the royal family holiday and I loved that they didn't really ever update the 1950s decor!!
  4. I'm very pale too and lived in Florida for years. The only way I escaped sun burns was covering up, staying in the shade and lots of high spf sunblock. Be careful and have fun!
  5. Hello I live in the UK and regularly travel to Europe. I wouldn't worry about spending 100 euro notes. The only places that might give you a hard time is street vendors or smaller shops or if you're using it to purchase small items like bottled water. Paying for attractions or in restaurants will be fine. I imagine they would change these on the ship but probably charge you for the service!
  6. I'm not sure if it's the same excursion but @nblobstr wrote a review recently on a similar tour they did in Pisa which might hekp6!
  7. 21st July in Serenade 😎πŸ₯‚
  8. We'll be limited to what our airline allows.for our next cruise out or Stockholm. So we'll manage with two large suitcases and two backpacks. To be honest, we're both fine with wearing things more than once and aren't too worried about getting very dressed up on formal nights so it will be plenty for us.
  9. I like to get a coffee as soon as I board and then get my first drink with lunch! β˜•πŸΈπŸ₯‚
  10. Depending on how early we board, I like to grab a coffee and tour the ship! Then grab lunch at either at WJ or park cafΓ©. Once cabins are ready, I like to unpack and settle in to the vacation! Then off to the pool deck for a drink and sail away!! Man, I'm sailing on Serenade in about 25 days and this is just getting me more excited! πŸ˜‚
  11. That also happened to us on Majesty - marooned on a table for 8 by ourselves!
  12. That's a really good point! The 3 course dinner does take time away from all the other fun activities in the evening!
  13. Thanks! This is really helpful. It's only my second cruise (first was on Majesty 4 nights to Havana) and my first 7 night cruise. Also we're on my time dining and I'm hoping the flexibility will be useful as it's a port intensive itinerary.
