janfred...We already have rebooked...not a B2B however!!! A short Carnival and a longer Celebrity cruise will take up the slack! Advantage:Less Expensive and some new ports on the agenda!! For Your thoughts.....while Colmar, France is not on any scheduled river cruise I can find...the Christmas markets are unbelievable and memorable.....worth a side trip anytime!! River Cruising is not Our "schtick"...too little time in those ports...too many in one day...We love to linger. As is, there is a planned Transatlantic in the semi-distant future.(Fall 2015)(Spring 2016) if Our fjord plans do not come to fruition!!
Your Galapagos will be a rare treat!! LAN from Quito offers great airfares and Celebrity will have an MD on board...most ships in the region are smaller , lacking in amenities, in some cases even hot water......MD's are few!!! Be prepared for 3rd World!!!
