Due to high airline costs, we have cancelled this cruise. Going to Alaska instead.
Have a fabulous cruise in the Med. We've done it twice and every port is so magical !

I know what you mean. I am in shock on how much money I spent and I still need to pay for a hotel, transfers and tours.

Scrappycruiser, I went to Alaska in August and it was the most amazing scenery ever! I just loved every part of my trip, and I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I did... You will have a wonderful trip!

How do you prefer to book your hotel reservation, via bookin.com, hotel.com,or directly from the hotel website?

Thanks for the good wishes !

As far as hotel reservations. We had booked the Regina Hotel through booking.com and I would definitely book again with them !!
Since we had to cancel our cruise, we also had to cancel our hotel too.
It was the easiest thing I've ever done. Took all of 30 seconds !

For my trip in Alaska, I chose to book my hotels in Vancouver via Bookin and was very happy with it. So, I'll do the same this time. I love to book DCL hotels (but not with Disney, only with bookin, because it will be cheaper that way) when I go on a Disney Cruise, as the hotel will send my luggage directly on the ship! So easy and convenient!
Which hotel are you planning to book?

I already booked my Barcelona hotel, but I am looking for Paris for a post cruise trip. Any idea?

I will ask for the good places in Paris. When I go there, I usually go to Disneyland so I don't really know... Sorry.
I'm thinking about booking the Hilton Diagonal del Mare for the night before the cruise. I'm looking for reports about it.

We just returned from Paris 2 weeks ago. We just did it on our own both this time and when we went 4 years ago; Paris is very easy get around either walking or using the Metro. We partly used Rick Steves' Paris guidebook for some of his city walks, but also saw several museums, churches, etc of interest, including a day trip to Versailles. You can now order tickets for the Eiffel Tower online, thus saving yourself considerable time waiting in line.

We may return via Rome as no one except me has been there and we know that just one day will not be enough to do all we want.

We stayed at the Hotel Dauphine St Germaine, 36 Rue Dauphine, a small hotel on the left bank near Isle de la Cite (where Notre Dame Cathedral is located). The Louvre was perhaps a 10-15 minute walk. We picked it because we wanted to spend more time on the left bank, and because it had charming rooms, a lift/elevator, and air conditioning (thankfully, as the temps were in the high 90s when we were there). They have some pretty good rates online. Staff was friendly and very helpful, and we would stay again.

Hotels in Paris tend to be expensive, even for lesser quality hotels. Rooms are small by US standards (and even European standards), and few have elevators or air conditioning (so you'll pay a bit more to get it).

Four years ago we stayed near Pigalle since we needed a family room and were booking rather late so had to take what we could find. This time we only had DW and myself, and because it was our anniversary, we splurged on a "deluxe" room. I looked in arrondissements 1-6 as we wanted to spend time walking around and these are the more historical areas. (1-4 is right bank, 5 & 6 are left bank).
