  1. A good TA is worth their weight in gold..... We always use one for EVERYTHING....Trust me, I do my research. But in the end, she books the cruise, handles private excursions, arranges drivers, transfers, hotels, gets better OBC's and better buss. class air that I can find.......Ask around, friends, church, your jobs.....TA's are not dinosaurs yet...Good Luck!!!
  2. Depends where you are flying from.....If you are flying from Zurich, I would stay there and maximize your time.....you will spend 1/2 day each way to get to Lucern and back, and if you only have 2 days.......There is lots to do in Zurich...they are on a beautiful lake with snow covered mountains ......
  3. WOW They have really gone up....guess I should quit recommending that Hotel!! I would not pay that for any hotel.
  4. Used them a couple of years back and they were fantastic....my husband basically planned his own Band of Brothers tour.....We are also using them again next year.....
  5. Stay in London......Even IF you have train interruptions, you can get a driver, cab.......
  6. Have not done Scenic, but we just did a Crystal Rhine and LOVED it.....everything about it was great 200% better than our Viking Danube, and we loved that one as well.........The ships are all newer than the Scenics I believe.......
  7. Madeforspainandportugal.....We used the for 4 days......they were awesome!!

    It can be easy....if you are around the church....or alot of walking around the paths surrounding, there are some wonderful ares to hike above....
  9. I always suggest anyone taking this cruise to go in early and stay in someplace charming like Honfleur and do all the beaches and museums on their own....the buss rides are too long, 1 day is not enough time . We used Overlord and designed the tour the way WE wanted it......We are going back and using them again.
  10. I also would love to do the Crystal, as I am now hooked......But in AMA or Avalon, I would do AMA
  11. Rome.....The time of year you have picked is also good!!
  12. That airport can be a nightmare......depending on when your ship arrives and clears customs, you can get off.....keep your luggage, and be the first one off the ship.......in my opinion, even that could be a stretch. I think that is why most will tell you to book flights after noon.
  13. Most everywhere you go, and people you will deal with speak English......go, have fun!!
