  1. Hi Deb, I love reading your "semi-live" review. I will be on this Thursday's sailing and was wondering: what is the cost for lunch and/or dinner at The Porch? It looks fabulous!
  2. Hi OneSixtytoOne, I hadn't considered going on the Commonwealth tour, I just assumed we'd take the US tour. But now you've got me thinking, and I should consult with my friends. However, one of them is a veteran who is looking forward to this experience, so I'm not sure how he'd feel about it. The tapestry would be amazing to view (and a smaller group would be a definite plus). Thank you for the tip. -Monique
  3. Hi Respbj, thanks for the tip! I have been in love with impressionist art my whole life, so I'm excited to visit the Monet Foundation. I'm considering the "Monet's Garden by Bicycle" tour, but I want to understand the specific differences between it and the regular Monet Foundation tour by bus. (For example, do both excursions go into the museum/home?) I figure I'll never have another opportunity to bicycle along the Seine, and I understand the whole ride will be flat (and it better be, haha!).
  4. Hi Carolyn, I can't wait to read your stories! Good luck finishing them in time for your deadline, and thank you so much for your post! -Monique
  5. Hi everyone! My friends and I are taking the "Paris and the heart of Normandy" river cruise in May 2020 on Viking Radgrid, one of the upcoming new ships that I hear will dock in Paris proper by the Eiffel Tower instead of Le Pecq. We are staying in Paris for several days on our own before the cruise begins, but afterwards we are taking the Viking "Loire Valley" extension. Has anyone taken the Loire Valley extension in the past? I'd love to hear about it, including whether you have any restaurant recommendations in Tours. Also, do you have any specific recommendations for the "Paris and the heart of Normandy" river cruise, either in Paris itself or along the cruise? I am familiar with Viking (love it) and have taken the "Grand European" cruise (highly recommend!!!) and also the "Viking Homelands" ocean cruise. Thanks!! Monique
