    Any Value in Travel Agents?

    I have always been a Do It Myself type and I think most Tuggers are probably like me. I just booked a couple of Royal Caribbean cruises on the new ships Icon and Utopia for 2024 and 2025 since they are kid friendly and my daughters really want to go.

    Icon of the Seas Infinite Ocean View Balcony

    We booked the Infinite Ocean View Balcony on Icon of the Seas. My daughters prefer this stateroom because you get more space and they say we do not really use our balcony on vacations.

    Baltic Seas Cruises

    I am probably posting on the wrong site, but thought fellow Tuggers would have insight into traveling to the Baltics. St Petersburg is on my Bucket List, so we are planning on going next year. I was hoping for something a little more in & outs than Cruise Critic could give me. Also where to stay...
