Hi, Asanchez1961 did you buy your lottery ticket? I feel lucky for you. Are you going on the Solstice Valentine 2010? I have a cabin for you!

If I book this will be my first time to Russia. How does the VISA process work? Does Crystal obtain them for us? If so, do we pick them up on-board? Any information regarding how this all works would be appreciated.

Yes, when using only the excursions off the ship while in Russia they provide the "blanket" visa and you do not have to obtain your own visa. If however, you wish to go off on your own you must obtain your own visa.

Is this group selling fast? Do I have time to think or should I grab a cabin now? Also is someone from Cruise Freeks escorting the group?

Yes, Cruise Freeks will have an escort,.... hopefully myself or Tina or both! I always recommend booking, deposit AND THEN THINKING.... lol! Because the deposit is refundable at least you know you will get a cabin of your choice that way. If you wait you take what someone else didn't take.

Please let me know if you have any concerns or questions. I have a hard time "containing" myself about this cruise. This Baltic cruise will definately give a new or perhaps different insight to Russia as to what it is/was like and how countries are doing now and Estonia's people comments for example as to life without Russia. Their history and present involvement OR NOT with Russia..... Seeing St Petersburg (Venice of the North) with all it's PETER THE GREAT history. Fascinating! Seeing the palaces PeterThe Great built AND the ones Catherine the Great built for her LOVERS... my goodness! SURE definately BOOK NOW! bounce

This is very hard to say "no" to booking but, I can't do anything until this coming Friday at the earliest, that's when my boss returns and I can finally ask for the dates off. Wish me luck!

Also doing some scheduling moving and switching - hopefully - to be able to fit this one in - can't believe 3 days in Russia! It seems like there is never enough time there!

The Crystal Cruise to the Baltic Aug 5, 2009 has exciting news for the Cruise Freek folks. cheers

Hopefully you got the notice about the FREE prenight hotel stay in Copenhagen if deposited before the end of October? That is good news for the CruiseFreek folks. That goes for all of you that have already deposited too! ..don't forget the ship board credit is $100 PER PERSON and prepaid gratuities.

YES, 4 Leaf Clover, hopefully you will be on board with us .... DoggieBreak

Dr, Donna
I did this cruise this last August and it definately was a plus to have the three days in St Petersburg. Each day was busy doing different things and I felt it was the minimum amount of time to see so much and each day was so different as well. The canals of St Petersburg was really something to see and the layout of the city that was designed by Peter the Great was also fasinating.... I do hope you go!

I wanted to bump this thread a little. Please know that the free night hotel in Copenhagen offer in combination with booking this cruise is for those depositing before October 31, 2008. This is very valuable if you are even thinking of going on the Baltic Cruise. "This is a good thing" as Martha Stewart would say. bounce
