We did the ship-organised excursion to St Petersburg three years ago when we cruised on the Constellation. The excursion was very good, though fairly expensive. Some people we know used Red October tours for this excursion and were very pleased with the arrangements - and with the cost! Hope this helps. Bon voyage!

We have ben twice to st.petersburg and done the ships tours, (with celebrity) although the trips are expensive they have been well worth every penny.

Ships tours - more expensive,larger numbers, large coaches, always having to wait for the slowest person, longer bathroom breaks. I used Alla - small group of 11, smaller minivan that can pull up directly infront of each museum, priority entry, move at your own speed, cheaper - $325pp for 2-days full tour.

Gratuities on cruise ships is a very controversial subject, especially amongst British passengers so the news that Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruises have increased their daily service charge to $ 14.50 per person per day, an increase of $ 1 , will have caused outrage amongst many passengers.According to Royal`s press statement “Royal Caribbean is constantly reviewing our competitive environment and this adjustment positions us in-line with our competitors.
