What ports of call? If going to St P then you must either go with the ships tours or with a recognises licenced Russian tour guide [Alla, Red October,DenRus are the most recomended]. With either of these options you do not need to get a Russian visa. As for weather who knows what it will be like in England over Easter let alone Scandinavia.

Thanks for your feedback. Sorry, I do not know the port' names but they will be somewhere in Amsterdam, Scadinavia and Oslo. I asked the travel agents but they did not give me much detail in their answers.

My suggestion as Easter is early this year is to take warm clothing, that way you can always take things off should it warm up. In Amsterdam I would certainly take the children on a trip around the canals, they should love that. There is also a great miniature village park at Madurodam near Den Hague that’s really worth checking out but allow the whole day for this. Your youngest might be too young to appreciate Anne Franks House. And just to walk around Amsterdam and listen to the music and see the canals, bridges and houses is very pleasant, (For you the beer is great) In Copenhagen Tivoli Gardens will amuse the children although it is a little expensive and to see it at it’s best an evening visit is preferable. The trips on a boat around the harbour and back waterways is also a good experience and not too expensive you can get the boats from the town centre by the harbour. The beer is more expensive here but not as expensive as in Norway where you might like to visit a park with some wonderful iron and bronze sculpture (unfortunately I’ve forgotten its name) or to go and walk around the winter Olympic skiing stadium which is quite interesting and the ski jump from the top is frightening. Oslo is an interesting city to walk around and has some good parks in it although I don’t remember any swings or slides. Hope that is food for thought…..Neil .

Having read your last message I suggest you go to royal Caribbean's web site where you will find your cruise you will also, if you insert your reference number be able to get a great deal more info including the ship's tours etc and the ports and details of them and also fill in a form to save you time as you embark. I would also, if I were you dump that agent and get one who knows what they are talking about and by the sound of it you will probably get a better price....regards Nei.

I suggest you change your TA. Jewel arrives 14April into Amsterdam - well past Easter.

I assumed that you were talking about the School end of term "Easter" break and not the religious festival of Easter....Hope I was right....Nei.

No children for me so no idea that Easter school holidays may not coincide with religous Easter - it always did in my day....
