I just checked the DCL website for the Balitic cruise. The message for the shore excursions has changed to:

Please note that all Port Adventures are operated by local independent contractors. While shore excursions are exciting and fun, we do remind our Guests that we are not responsible for any injury or property damage/loss that may occur in connection with Port Adventures. All Port Adventure tickets are non-refundable and pricing is subject to change without notice. Bear in mind that excursions themselves are also subject to change due to weather conditions. For the safety and enjoyment of you and your family, some Port Adventures have age restrictions, and children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Nothing else but we must be getting close!:cool1:

I hope so .... I am really frustrated by how long it is taking for that information to be released!!!

For our 2005 Baltic cruise with similar ports (no Germany, but both Helsinki and Talinn) - Rick Steves' Scandinavia guide book was all we needed for 5 of our 6 ports. We booked no excursions through the cruise line, but bought the "city" passes for most of the ports, and that covered admissions to most things we wanted to see in Oslo (the best value), Copenhagen, and Stockholm. The city pass for Helsinki wasn't much of a money saver, and it was very easy to walk around the old town of Talinn on our own using the Rick Steves book.

In St. Petersburg, I strongly recommend doing a private tour. We went with DenRus and had an excellent 2-day tour: www.denrus.ru

Worth reviewing and posting on this thread,

http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2183183

Where we and I have been posting about this, during the last week and when it changed on Sunday.

I would suggest its best to keep it all in one place, rather than having a few threads around.

But yes very enthusiastic on this as well.

Maybe the MOD;s and merge the repeated thread.
