  1. You all have helped so much. We are definitely doing Guernsey and Cobh walking around on on our own and will do an excursion in Belfast and Glasgow. We are probably taking Princess transportation onto Edinburgh but will walk around town without a tour. Still working on Invergorden - not sure we want another long bus ride but also not sure we want to roam on our own here. But as you can see I have stopped panicking and have a good plan in place. I am so excited for this cruise! I have finished reading Guernsey Literary and potato Peal Society book (enjoyed it) and for now my favorite thing to read are reviews and blogs. Thanks again everyone Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Wonderful, I checked out the map and that was a big help. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Sounds wonderful but I want to confirm is that in Guernsey? It sounds like something we would really enjoy Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you everyone. Your posts have helped me focus my energy and we made a tentative plan to walk around and enjoy Guernsey (I am reading the book now) and Cobh. For Dublin we are going to do a hop on and off bus. Still working on Invergordon and Glasgow but I do feel more focused. Thanks again for all the advice. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. We just booked what for us is a last minute cruise. Typically we book at least a year and a half in advance but we got a good deal on Princess British Isles cruise in August. We have never been to Europe and as I try to figure out the ports I just get overwhelmed and shut down, sometimes for me there is just too much on YouTube and even here or CC. So I am reaching out for some help. We are in our early 50's have no disabilities and don't mind walking. We are pretty conservative travelers, one of the few people on CC who like cruise excursions but we also like to mix it up with exploring on our own. we are going to London, Guernsey, Cork, Dublin, Belfasr, Glasgow, Invergordon, and Edinburgh What I am trying to accomplish with my planning is a mix of city and country views. We want to tour some castles but don't want to only tour castles etc.... We are pretty sure we will walk London on our own and I have my heart set on seeing Scottland countryside but that's as far as I get before I am overwhelmed will you share with me: your favorite port to walk and roam without a planned excursion your favorite castle tour your favorite/most helpful review/YouTube video/website that helped you plan for your cruise thank you - I am off to have some tea and remind myself that vacations don't have to be perfect to be wonderful!!!
