Hi We will be on the Royal Princess on August 27th. The only shore excursion that we have signed up thru Princess is Volendam and Marken in Amsterdam, that afternoon we may take the shuttle and go into Amsterdam. The rest of the ports we are going to try to do it on our own. In Falmouth we would like to go to visit St Michael,s Mount which is about 24 miles and visit Trebah gardens which is about 15 minutes by taxi. In Cork we would like to go to Kinsale and Blarney, we understand that we can pick up a bus for both, will also check out taxis. In Dublin there is a shuttle and plan to do the Hop on Hop off bus. In Edinburgh we will take the shuttle and see it on our own. In Hamburgh we plan on the Hop bus. In Zeebruge will take the transfer to the train station and go to Bruges. In Le Havre we are undecided, it is a Sunday and we would like to go to Rouen on the train, it seems that the trains for Rouen is at 7:56am and 11:00am. A lot of this infromation I have picked up on Cruisecritic.com message board, and thru various websites.
