Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
There is nothing in Invergordon where the ship docks, so you need to take a tour of some kind. If you do, you won't be disappointed. We took a private tour with Gordon of WOW Scotland and were indeed wowed. Great tour guide, great scenery and lots of history. Loch Ness is very More pretty, but the Culloden Battle Field and Museum were clearly the highlight.
Beautiful stop. Skara Brae is the must see here. I have never seen anything quite like it, fascinating. Lots of other things to see as well, wonderful scenery.
Portree/Isle of Skye
My 11 year old daughter's favorite day. No big highlights, just fantastic scenery that never ends. Here we had a private tour with Donald from Toursbylocals.com
Great guide, lots of fun.
No excursions were even offered here, but they weren't needed. It is a little like going to Martha's Vineyard except less crowded and prettier. My 13 year old's sons favorite stop. We bought a handline and some bait and walked about 20 minutes to a rocky point where we were able to do some fishing.Rouen
We were in Rouen for 2 1/2 days. Hired a private guide from www.bestprivatetours.com for the two full days.
We spent the first day touring the Normandy invasion sights. Words can't describe the emotional impact on all of us. Amazing. My 15 year old son's favorite day.
The second day we took a whirlwind tour of Paris. Saw all the major sights, but didn't go deep into any of them. Wonderful day. My 12 year old daughter's favorite day.
The last half day we took the Rouen Walking Tour offered by the ship. A very nice tour with about an hours freetime to explore and shop. Less
Cabin review: RS6003
Like being on your own private yacht. Looking where you are going is much better than looking backwards or sideways. Great views every morning coming into different ports. Slight noise from the Cabaret, not a real problem as it is slight and shows don't run late. If you want to sleep late pick another room as anchoring/docking noise could wake you up.
