What A Bunch Of Con Artists
I booked and paid in full 8 months ahead of sailing. Then noticed prices reducing up to 30% for same cabin. The latest is a cabin rate of 30*% less Plus a 3 cabin class upgrade. Not available to early bookers. A bunch of Yankee shylocks, unethical scammers. Cunard and Seabourne are far more honourable and ethical than these. Will never book with these rip off merchants again.

For a really bad cruise experience try Regent!
We unfortunately chose Regent to sail from London to Stockholm. Their excursions were simply dreadful and are carefully orchestrated so that you can only do one excursion per day, which leaves you spending half of each day on board. Bor-ing.
In St Petersburg the tout Regent employed as a 'guide' told us that the Hermitage Museum store only sold books. We demanded to visit this shop and were thrilled with the fabulous range of products - compared to the rubbish 'special store' that the rest of the excursion went to (there are only so many Ba...bushka dolls one can accommodate in a house) it was absolutely superb. He was obviously getting kick backs from his 'special stores'. If you do have the misfortune to choose to sail to St Petersburg on Regent, do engage your own FULL DAY tour guide, there are plenty of reputable local tour companies who are willing to tailor a tour to accommodate your wishes. Regent's 'tour' of the Hermitage was abysmal, only a very short time was spent there compared to time in the 'special shops' where time was unlimited. Bor-ing. In Riga in Latvia our female guide was in such a hurry that unless you were in the first five or six in the tour you did not hear any of her very brief explanations. She never waited for the slower members of the group to arrive and at one stage she was in such a hurry that she rushed the group across recently dug flower beds! Finally, do not EVER give Regent your street address, they will NEVER stop sending you promotional literature no matter how many times you return their offerings. They are an environmentally unaware company that persists in wasting paper, printing costs, packing costs and mailing costs.
