Scandinavia/Russia Cruise
August, 2001

Taking the time to let you know that we recently returned in August on Galaxy Cruises Scandinavia/Russia Cruise and found it most enjoyable.

Our travel agent Affordable Cruises, Littleton, Co. gave us a lot of information so we were prepared for this two week cruise.

The ship was clean and the main problem was so many employees were from Eastern European companies and they had great difficulty communicating with the passengers. A lot of the passengers were from Spain and Italy and were truly rude to older passengers from the US. The ports were good and the food started as only adequate and got better as the cruise progressed.

The tours to St. Petersburg were excessive as was the tour to Berlin. ($275 per person). Scandinavia was delightful and the people in Stockholm, Helsinki, and Oslo were very helpful. With the current happenings, we are restricting our cruises to the Caribbean and Mexican Riviera. Hope this helps others.
