Transatlantic Cruise on Eclipse for 1st timers
My husband surprised me with a cruise for Christmas. We will be taking a 13 day Transatlantic cruise on the Eclipse in April with stops in the Azores, Ireland, France and ending in Southhampton, England. I have so many questions:
1. It is our anniversary and I have a special bottle of Dom Perignon I would like to take on. Is it allowed:
2. In the ports we are going to, do we really need to take excursions in each one or which ones have things to do readily available?
3. What is the best way to get from Southampton, England to Galwick airport in London?
4. Are the drink packages worth it? They seem so expensive. How much do mixed drinks run on the ship? How about a margarita? Beer?
Sorry for all the questions and I'm sure I'll have more but I am a cruise virgin!
