We are booked on the Royal Princess May 29th sailing from Southampton to Bilboa,(Spain), Bordeaux (France), Glasgow/Edinburgh (Scotland) Dublin (Ireland),Cork (Ireland),Cornwall ( England), (Le Harve) France, Rotterdam (Netherlands), Zeebrugge (Belgium).
We want to avoid using the ship's excursions as much as possible. We are in the midst of doing research what sites we should see and how we should see them. We would welcome people who are doing this cruise to contact us so we could team up and cut down some costs. We are a couple early 50's and son 21. At Le Harve, we would like to visit some WWII sites.
We are flying into London and wondered if we could make the journey to Southampton ourselves. Has anyone done this on their own before?
Please share your suggestions and experience if you have done any of the ports mentioned above. Thanks .
