Looking forward to hearing about your experiences - three questions... 1. Were you able to visit any of the Christmas Markets? 2. Were arrangements made for guests to attend a Christmas Eve service? 2. How was the Christmas Dinner??
Schedule was skewed a little due to Christmas and some locks were closed, but we left Paris early and did first day on next to last day. Nothing was missed. Many markets, some good and some not so good, with Paris markets were to be open until New Years. Special Christmas meal. I'll post later some menu items later. Weather has been 40-50s with some rain and wind. Christmas Eve we went to the 10:30 Mass at Notre Dame in Rouen. More later as we are heading to the airport,Christmas Eve in Rouen. This is why River Cruising is the best way to travel. Can't wait to read your full report. Also, changing the schedule due to the locks is common. We sailed near Bastille Day and our schedule had to be altered also, but, we too, were able to see everything. Those Lock workers don't play around when it comes to holidays. Good for Them!
Planning the cruise is half the fun.
