Great Service but Expensive Shore Excursions

Sail Date: September 15, 2015

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

We liked the Freestyle dining options with no requirements to dress formally, as we like to travel light and don't want to be dragging around gowns and suits. We took the ship's shore excursions in St Petrsburg, Russia, in lieu of doing it ourselves and obtaining our own Russian visa. The first all day tour was ok, but rushed with no oportunities to take good photos. The second day excursion stopped at souvenir shops instead of giving us opprtunity to take photos of the Hermitage and Winter Palace. The stop in Stockholm was very short, from 10 am-3:30 pm only. We did the shore tours ourselves on most of the stops and saw a lot more and saved money.
