My sister and I are planning on going with my dad on a Baltic cruise in 2009. Celebrity and Azamara have almost identical itineraries, except for departure points and one additional day in St. Petersburg.
Here are a few questions.
1. We would ordinarily stay in a suite, but it appears that if we put two in a veranda cabin and one in another -- even if we pay single supplement -- it will be a couple thousand cheaper. What are the additional amenities which come with having a suite which would make the investment worth while.
2. How different will the experience be between celebrity and Azamara? Does it make sense to with Verandas on Azamara, which will be same as suite on Celebrity.
3. How important would a third day in St. Petersburg be?
Thanks for your assistance.
