Default Back from a Baltic Cruise Jewel of the Seas - Questions?

We just got back from a Baltic Cruise on Jewel of the Seas. We had such a wonderful cruise. If anyone has any questions I would be glad to try and answer them.

We are leaving on the same cruise on August 30.

Suggestions for tours (not ship tours), what to see and do, money exchanges (what did you do), ship entertainment, ship food?

Did you enjoy this cruise and would you sail on the Jewel again? How many cruises have you taken and how did this one compare?

Many thanks,

This was our seventh cruise. We loved the ship, it is very new and beautiful.

We only did RCCl tours. We enquired about Denrus and Red October but could not find people to join us and were told it was too costly for two people by the two tour companies.

We had wonderful couples at our diner table from England, Scotland and Arizona. We ended up enjoying their company before and after dinners every day.

We did not exchange alot of money, mainly used our debit or credit cards. Fees were not too bad on our cards. The ship will exchange money but is costly. A lot of places will take dollars especially in Russia. The ship will inform you on this. If you get dollars back in Russia be careful as alot of them will be counterfit. They tell to get rid of all the dollars you receive in Russia before you leave. I got to $5s back and you could definitely tell they were not real so I used them to buy something else.

Overall was an excellent cruise and we would not hesitate to do it again.

Thanks for your comments.

We have a group of 16 people who have a tour booked with DenRus for two days, we got together on the message boards and it worked out well.

Since we will be in England 3 days pre-cruise I have already gotten GBP to take care of stay in England.

Thanks for the tip about money in Russia. I don't plan on buying too much and will make certain we get rid of any $$ that we are given as chage!
