Cancelled the Grand Princess....but.....
I booked the Jewel of the Seas Transatlantic for October 30, 2007! Let's see....7 day western caribbean (again) or 12 day transatlantic plus 2 - 3 days precruise in London? Hmmm........I think London wins!!!!!!!
Crown Princess 1/18/14....the NEW Me, Myself and I cruise!
Lisa, it was nice talking with you on Chat last night. Yet another suggestion: if you have the chance, do not miss the London Silver Vaults located in the Old Bailey neighborhood. Everything old and new in silver that you can possibly imagine. A huge place open to the public. I bought a bracelet and a serving spoon made in the 1800's. The latter has outlasted some of my newer spoons bought here.
Also, the Old Royal Observatory Greenich is an ineresting place to visit. You can get there on the Underground. You can probably find out about it from teh cruise line. If you can, it's wise to go with a tour group. Then you don't have to climb that awful hill like we did!
I remember the Silver Vaults vividly ... was instructed to get something for my Mother. Got an antique ink stand - kind of poo-pooed at the time I brought it home but many years later got a very good price for it over what I had paid! Fascinating place!
I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012
