I am considering the Oct 2011 Elclipse crossing. There is a stop that provides the day to go to Paris. The description of the tour is 2.5 hours in a bus, tour, 2.5 hour return bus ride.
Has anyone done this excursion through Celebrity, and if so was it worth it.
I must admit a total of 5 hours on a bus is not my cup of tea.....but to see a glimpse of Paris, the E Tower and a lunch on a river boat might be worth the effort.
Any experiences would be greatly appreciated.
We're booked on the same cruise. Stop by the Roll Call and meet some great folks who will be traveling with you: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1166949
I would not recommend doing the ship's tour. If Paris is a "must see" for you, I would recommend hooking up with some others on the Roll Call and taking a private tour, and then it will be like a "drive by shooting."
If you haven't been to Normandy, It's worthwhile, and I would take a private tour vs. the ship's tour.
If you're adventurous, they have some nice little villages along the coast, including Honfleur. We don't pull out until 9pm. I'll be renting a car and doing it on my own.
