GPS receiver in Russia - Nyet!

Opinions seem to vary about food and service. It may be more of an adventure than a luxury cruise, but that's OK. One of the reasons we signed with Viking and this particular tour was to see the...

Viking Kirov or land tour?

So I'm trying to decide between a Russia-Siberia land tour and a Russian river/canal cruise on the Viking Kirov. The Viking Kirov package sounds reasonable, but I'm seeing a lot of negativity on...

Re: Tahitian Islands

It's been thirty years since I've been there, but I have many fond recollections of Moorea. The rich red volcanic soil, the deep blue inlets, the sheer mountains - they used the main peak as a...

Re: South Pacific Cities

The Paul Gauguin exhibition is worth checking out. It's been a number of years since I visited, but as I recall, it's a short cab ride from Papeete. There are only a few paintings on display, but...

Re: Re: Wine from home

Re: NCLA ferry service

No kidding? I hadn't hear about that. Seems like an odd time to be launching that business. Maybe some of the voters don't like flying. Still, there might be some wiggle room for NCLA - depending...
