-We are flying out of JFK airport on Iceland Air, spending a 10 hour layover in Iceland. We arrive in Iceland around 8am. From what I've read, it seems our time would be best spent at Blue Lagoon Spa, but truthfully, I would also like to get to Reykjavik if it is worth the trip into the city. Is it worth it?
-About 4:30pm we fly out of Iceland and into London Heathrow Airport, landing at about 8pm. I know the underground subway would be the cheapest way into London, but I am seriously considering taking a black taxi cab just because this is our first time in Europe and maybe would be more interesting to approach London above ground and see it come to life as we are driving in. Any thoughts?
-We will be spending two nights at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel.
-On our sail date, I would like to take the coach bus that offers a stop at Stonehenge on the way to Southampton. The schedule for this (International Friends) does not operate on our sail date (Nov 20th) but it says that if they get 10 or more people requesting that date, they will add that date to the schedule. Anyone else on this cruise interested in this? Otherwise, I will have to book a private service, which will be double the price. In any case, I do want to see Stonehenge before we leave England.
I am quite sure I will have more questions in the next few weeks, but for now, thank you for any information or helpful hints! We have signed up with the roll call for our voyage and look forward to meeting some Cruise Critic folks.
