Lesliet - thanks for your response. We are taking a 12 day Dover to Civitavecchia cruise on CCL Splendor in September. We are making stops in Le Havre, Vigo Spain, Lisbon, Barcelona, Cannes, Livorno and Civitavecchia. We are currently leaning toward the Rouen excursion in Le Havre. I've posted queries on the other stops with a few of the excursions we are considering for each stop.
You mentioned that you reserved "private" tours in most of the ports your are stopping in. Were these based on recommendation of a tour guide/travel agent?
I'd be interested in getting some of your e-mails that are relevent to our agenda.
