Yes ABANDONED!!!! And I never gave anyone guilt I just said it would be nice to all cruise together again, well maybe I guilted Susan....... Yes we did 3 days pre-cruise in Paris in 2010. Unforunately for us the weather sucked! We were lucky that we bought our tickets as one so we had our 2 bags per person on our inter-European flight. Luggage allowances inter-europe stink at best. If anybody has anti questions please ask. I'll be waving when you all disembark. Don't destroy the ship please!!!!!
