Serenade of the Seas

OVERVIEW: Life aboard is more casual and unstructured than is often the case with Royal Caribbean International. This ship offers more space, more comfortable public areas, and several more intimate spaces, slightly larger cabins and more dining options than most of the larger ships in the fleet. Bu

Not a fan of MSC
MSC  / MSC Preziosa /
MEDITERRANEAN

By garland, swansea on 19th Apr 2014
We have sailed with many of the cruise lines but thought we would try MSC Prezioza which was sailing from Venice. The embarkation procedure is organised chaos, it took hours to board. The drinks package is worth it, try the Allegresimo, 23 euros+15%, per...  Read More >>

Question

Report
I shall be visiting St Petersburg on the 4th and 5th September aboard Artemis. I've read about the tour company DenRus who organise tours in St Petersburg (and othe places).
Has anyone experience of these tours and can you give me details of good and/or bad experiences?
Many thanks

We have just come back from the Baltic on P&O Oriana and did the 2 day value tour with Denrus. There were no problems booking and the 2 days were excellent - only 7 of us on the minibus with a superb guide. We saw much more than the majority of P&O passengers and could not fault Denrus in the slightest. Highly recommended from all aspects, booking, communication, tour, lunches everything. Hope this helps.

Question by Kingswood, Little Weighton (13 Jul 10 23:08) about a COMMENT by Philpotts (02 Jul 10 18:10)
Thanks for your reply. My wife and I have now booked the Denrus 2 day excursion. A couple of further questions please. From reading the Denrus documentation it would appear that US dollars are acceptable in Russia, is this the case or did you need to obtain Roubles? Is tipping allowed for the guides and, if so, do they prefer dollars or roubles?

We used Alla last month ( see my review for NCL Sun) and had excellent treatment. We couldn't fault them in any way. Jacquie

Why not try Alla and Red Oktober - they all have excellent reviews. Denrus hve the contract to provide the tours for P & O so they may decline to take you on (though I have heard that this no longer applies)
