I see you're from Louisiana. If you speak French, that's helpful for Paris.

Agree with you woody

Enjoyed the Pumpkinmen
Never liked the idea of using a snorkel after someone else

At first we thought we would do a combo but decided we would be rushing both. My little girl has been dying to go to Paris, but I really want to do London. I do think if we add the extra week Paris will win out. For those of you that have been to both, which did you prefer? We do want at least one day in DLParis but don't want to spend alot of time there.
We LOVE Paris.
Having had the pleasure of spending several vacations (and business trips) in both, we would choose Paris every time. It has the feel of a walkable village with an excellent transportation system, with Metro locations within a very few blocks of each other. London feels much more spread out and the tube stations are many blocks apart oftentimes.

I've sent pm's to both lysand and berries97 to see if they are still organising the activities they volunteered for as Both have not been active on dis for quite a few months.

Bradbrad25 I've searched for but that name is not recognised, is this you or is the name wrong, please get back to us please.

Although Ive lived in glasgow for 21 years, I'm originally from Middlesbrough a small industrial town In northeast of England, much like Springfield in the simpsons. I've never been to the tattoo although we arranged a reunion meet with now friends we made on the 2011 wbta to go last year, unfortunately I didn't make it due to no childcare but my husband and daughter went, hi dawn and Steve

Does anyone know the charge per bag on Easy Jet?

I have a feeling we will do Paris if we add on. It's not like I don't want to go there. But I love all things royal and want to see castles and tower of London. We figure we will end up there at some point and can do it right instead of rushing it.

I must admit I had to look up what a "tattoo" was when you guys were discussing it a while back. I figured out it wasn't something from the show "Inked"...

No clue. Maybe go through the website like you are making a booking until you get to the point you have to put in a credit card to see?

While you are there in the vicinity... worth doing. That's how several aspects of our trip have been - minus well do it.

For those of you that have been on this cruise before, what is the weather supposed to be like? Both on the cruise and off in Europe?
A while back I had peeked at some websites, and I noticed the EBTA in May will be a few degrees cooler than our WBTA in September. Not that it helps much by putting it that way! But I wore shorts and capris onboard, and pretty much shorts at all ports on that WBTA. I will bring mainly capris for this one I believe. Either way, I hope to pack for 7 nights and do laundry onboard as well as in Barcelona (we booked an apartment with a washer dryer).

Hmmm...is it too cold to swim? We did the Alaskan in June and dd did swim one day but it was hard getting out because of the cold. It's hard packing for cooler weather if we will be there for 3 weeks. I wondered about shipping some of dd's things back from Barcelona to make room for new things. Anyone know anything about that?

Is anyone taking the train to Paris? We did the train to Vancouver and dd loved it.

Kids & Adults were swimming each day of the crossing in 2011, it wasn't hot out but warm. It was warm enough to enjoy CC!

Isn't that a great little ride?!? We did that as well - flew into SEA and took the train to Vancouver. Well worth the ride.
