We are also booked on this cruise with two other couples. Just wanted to let you all know that it is completely sold out. My friends tried to book this week and couldn't.

Re: Re: Need hlep with SA tours!!!

Hi,

We took the Infinity in February and used www.portcompass.com for our tours and were very pleased with them. We "grew-a-group", but didn't have more than 10 or 12 on our tours.

Re: Re: St Petersburg

I also carry seatcovers and wipes for your hands. If your Diptheria/Tetanus shot isn't up to date (10 years), get one. The CDC recommended we have a Diptheria shot before going to Russia last year.
