  1. We were thinking there may be a cute little cafe to have coffee or some shopping. If that's not so, I'd love to know so that we don't book an open return time. Thank you!
  2. I think the Churchill War rooms will definitely be on our list. Our hotel is nearby, so it could be a quick walk over.
  3. Thank you! That's what we were thinking. My touring style has changed so much as I've gotten older. Instead of planning every minute of every day, we like to plan the major things, then take time to "go with the flow" and do what we want. This is probably the only time I will get my husband to Europe, so Paris is a must-do on this trip.. Our cruise docks in Le Havre, but we don't want to spend 6 hours round trip on a bus with 50 other people to see Paris. Instead, we will probably enjoy Honfleur that day. My husband wants to see some of the countryside, hence our Cotswolds day. We actually added a day to our original plans when I told him about going there. An added day of vacation....makes my day! We live in a rural area of SC (on a farm), so he is excited about leaving the big city for a day (especially after our other city touring).
  4. Updated Itinerary: June 4: Arrive at LHR in the morning. Shower and breakfast at Revivals Lounge, then take car service to Windsor (they keep our bags) and tour for a few hours. Car service to St. Ermins. Dinner, walk around, whatever we feel like... June 5: Private London tour (5 hours). Afternoon tea, maybe a market visit, shopping. June 6: Eurostar to Paris with private tour (5 hours). Have dinner at a bistro and take a later train back to London. June 7: Sunday, so hit the Columbia Flower Market! Also, attend a service at Westminster Abbey. Have Sunday roast somewhere. See any sights we want to! June 8: Train to Moreton in Marsh and Mystery Cotswolds Tour. We plan to take an hour or so in town after the tour is over before our train back to London. June 9: Sleep in a little, then head to Southhampton after breakfast. Thoughts?
  5. Forget suitcases....I think I'll take one of each of these on board!
  6. We will spend a few days pre-cruise in London, and plan to go to the Columbia Road Flower Market. If we have fresh flowers, will we be allowed to bring them on board with us? TIA for your input!
  7. Thank you for your review. We live about 1.25 hours from you in SC and will be on the Regal Princess next June (Dublin overnight). We can't wait!
  8. That's exactly what we were thinking! If we see something and purchase it...no carrying it around all day, and don't have to plan or navigate how to get to the sights. Plus, it will give us a really good overview so that we can choose where to spend more time in the free time we built in.
  9. Thank you! I've taken everyone's advice and chosen not to do the dinner cruise. Any recommendations for the Greenwich one?
  10. JB, I'm thinking about what you said....here's what I'm thinking may be a good alternative Arrive Thursday as planned Still do the London tour on Friday. We will have afternoon/evening time free to rest a little before a busy next day. Do the Eurostar and Paris on Saturday. This will be a long day. Sunday- our open day in London. Tour or shop....whatever we want. Also, recover from Paris! Monday- Cotswolds Tuesday- go to Southhampton
  11. I'm sorry....I totally forgot about this! June 4th is our arrival. We head to Southhampton on the 9th.
  12. That's exactly what we were considering. Actually, Secret Cottage is the one we've looked at.
