  1. Thanks for the feedback everyone and for the correction Budget Queen. It looks like I may go with the rental care to save a little money.
  2. Our group of 4 adults will be in Skagway in late July on a HAL cruise and plan to rent a vehicle to drive the Yukon Highway. Options appear to by the diy jeep or a regular rental car company like Avis. The Avis rental for a mid SUV is cheaper than the jeep but I'm wondering if there are benefits to the jeep rental vs. regular rental. I would appreciate in pros and cons of either from people who have used one or the other (or both). Thanks in advance.
  3. We are on the Westerdam in July on a Southbound 7 night cruise and I'm wondering about the timing of gala nights. I know there are usually 2 on a 7 night cruise and that they aren't on the last night. On our itinerary we have a day at sea the first full day transiting the gulf so I'm assuming that will be gala night 1. The next day we are in glacier bay and after that, Haines, Juneau and Ketchikan consecutively. Then we have a day at sea/scenic cruising before disembarking in Vancouver. We leave the earliest from Juneau (6 p.m.) and Ketchikan (7 p.m.), so I'm guessing the 2nd gala will be one of those nights. Any idea which night would be gala? Thanks in advance for your help.
  4. I can recommend SPB for tours in St. Petersburg. We used them in 2016 for a 3 day stop in St. Petersburg and took a train to Moscow the 2nd day. Ours was a small group, 10 people I think. They also have tours for other Baltic ports and you get a discount if you book multiple trips with SPB.
  5. We took a Baltic cruise on Celebrity Silhouette in early June in 2016 (Amsterdam - Stockholm) and loved it. The cruise spent 3 days in St. Petersburg and that's what sold it for us since we had time to explore SPB and also a full day to Moscow. We also had an overnight in Copenhagen.
