  1. If you cannot watch them...cable them together, and make sure they are locked.
  2. Look into one that has 3 days in St Petersburg...Crystal, Regent, Oceania, Seabourn, Viking...these are going to be your higher end and smaller.
  3. YES........You will love Overlord...My husband designed his own tour and it was great...We are using them again next year!!
  4. Use local currency.....get some before you leave home, then use the ATM's at banks.
  5. While I love Viking....this makes me look elsewhere....DO NOT like this policy, as we tend to book things way ahead. Doing Rhine on Crystal this fall.
  6. Doing the Rhine this fall on Debussey
  7. Call Viking and ask....I do know you will spend alot of time on busses....They really cannot get very close....What I suggest is to fly in early to Paris, take the train and stay 2 nights in Bayeaux or Honfleur and spend at least 2 days doing Normandy....it cannot even be touched in a day, especially if you think you may never go back!! Then when the ship stops in the port and everyone goes to a short Normandy trip, there are other things you can do.
  8. Stay for 2 days for sure...see the tapestrys in Bayeux. We are staying in Honfleur......Beautiful little seaside town close to all these things
  9. The train station is close to the port, you will need a cab, and if you want high speed, you will need to switch trains in Rome.
  10. Don't wed yourself to a particular line....If you don't like the policy, (I don't and we loved our Viking cruises). Try different ones....We are doing a Crystal Rhine this fall, I like the all inclusive and Crystal is a fabulous line.
  11. This is why everyone needs a good TA.....We always look at the air from the cruise line, but in the end we book our own....my TA still finds less $$ business class air, and the transfers are always less, and we are not waiting for other people.....To have control, choices and spend less is great....plus we are always doing pre and post, so sometimes their air won't work.
  12. I would do the pre and post on your own........March might be a little colder......Late spring or the fall ideal times...We are spending 8 days in Switzerland on our own before our Rhine in the fall.
  13. I'd stay with the one that has the bigger bathroom....and a real size shower.......The showers in the non suite rooms are beyond tiny. And I love balcony's, even in Alaska!!
