Luxury Baltic Sea cruise and London:
My wife has retired and I have started the process of retiring and want to do more travel. We have the resources to travel comfortably and were looking for someone to put that kind of trip together for us. Our first trip in this phase of our lives was done through a different person who almost completely ignored us. By pure circumstance I pick a cruise line and itinerary that gave us a wonderful experience, but I had to do all the work planning the trip myself.
We wanted to see St. Petersburg and London. Our agent and her team at this travel company designed a trip for us and we really enjoyed it. There are many things that can go wrong on a trip like this and our travel company helped make sure this did not happen. She designed a trip for us that included a cruise and some great private tours. Her planning included getting us on the executive floor of our hotel in Copenhagen, something I highly recommend as you come in very tired and having the amenities right there is worth the extra cost. She added private tours in St. Petersburg and London that significantly enhanced our visits there. She also arranged transfers for us that made these transitions in our trip very smooth. Finally, my wife broke her ankle three weeks before the trip and our agent help with arrangements just in case my wife was not as mobile as she needed to be.
The team put together a booklet that included printed information on preparing for our trip, things to know about traveling in Europe, flights, hotels, transfers, cruise, and private tour. This proved to be useful throughout the trip.
My wife and I will definitely recommend this company to our friends.
Sailing into London on river Thames through Tower Bridge and docking right across from the Tower of London. An experience of a lifetime.
Our private tours in St. Petersburg and London.
Our cruise and the itinerary was exceptional. However, the dining on the cruise was mediocre. This was unexpected as their reputation was that their dining was very good. We were told by several long time cruisers that the menu had changed in 2015 and was not as good as in the past. And that the quality of the food had declined as well.
If we could find a cruise line with the same itinerary but with better dining, that is the change we would make.
