    Lots of good breweries! Here are a few pics of Estonia, https://cruisingmemories.shutterfly.com/balticadventure/355
     
    Right. This is a democracy after all. My wife and I could discuss it before we agree with what she says. :) Seriously, though, I would really like it to e during our Anniversary too.

    Packercruising,
     
    Do you have to go in June? You can't celebrate in a different month? TA's are really a bargain and on some you get to see so many ports. Most are in March and April or August, October and November. Cunard does TAs all year long but they are more expensive.
     
    I want to fly to a European port and come back to the USA. It seems to be a little cheaper doing it that way, plus I want to spend a day or two in the city we sail from especially if it is Copenhagen or Amsterdam.

    Just trying to wet your whistle, whatever that means. :) We have pics of other ports if you want to see them. That was an awesome time and we really liked Visions

    That's great! Are you doing any private tours? We used SPb Tours, but it sounds like there are other good ones out there too. We spent two days pre-cruise in Copenhagen. Unfortunately,  only enough time to do the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. The only bad part was having to go through Amsterdam Airport. Security checks everywhere. Serenade is a really nice ship.
     
    Thanks for the St. Lawrence Seaway idea! We are looking at the Saguenay Fjords, but it wouldn't be RCI.

    Have you considered the British Isles? Royal also does a Norway and Iceland cruise which is quite fascinating. You've mentioned Norway, so there might be some repeat, but Iceland would be new.
     
    A Canada/New England cruise could fit the bill too. I don't know when Royal will be offering in 2018, but HAL always runs a ship from Montreal to Boston and Royal will probably run one from Quebec. Sailing down the Saint Lawrence river is an awesome experience and all of the ports are quite fascinating.
     
    Congratulations on 25. We hit 20 last month and are doing the Baltics next week for our anniversary.

    A great thing about booking early, is that you get to be involved early on. Checking out your cabin and ship, reading reviews and seeing photos. It also gives you time to find the best flights. Plus you get to say, Only 259 days until my Allure Of The Seas cruise!

    packercruising got a reaction from SeaSetter in Photo Package on Anthem: Buy Now or Onboard?   
    We never get the photo package because there seems to be fewer and fewer pictures we want to keep. In your case it will probably be worth it. A discount on the package is always one of the coupons inyour cabin when you board. Almost always, anyway. Whether they inflate the prices before then discount them, I have no clue. Maybe someone that has recently cruised can tell you how much the discounted price on the ship was.
     
    Regardless, happy cruising!!

    I know it's pretty common knowledge among cruisers.  But to anyone new to cruising or just to confirm for those who've heard it before...book early to get the best price!! 
     
    We booked within days of Royal Caribbean releasing our October 2016 cruise. So well over a year out from our cruise.   Our travel agent has checked EVERY sale that has come out since and not one has been able to give us a better deal than our original booking.  Even with higher percentages off, and even with OBC added, we still have a better deal.
     
    So while of course I'm still hoping there's that one magical sale that will save us some money before final payment....I'm really glad we booked as early as we did since prices seem to only go up from there!
     
    Happy Cruising :)
