  1. I agree with Keith1010, I wouldn't do it, for the reasons he states. Why intentionally put landmines in your route?
  2. If you look down the board, each of your ports are covered in great detail. You should also look at what the ship is offering, that will give you ideas on key sites. You shouldn't miss what interests you most.
  3. "Best" is a totally subjective opinion, and would depend upon what your interests are, which we don't know. What interests you?
  4. Unless it is a very late flight, you will clear US Immigration and Customs (two separate activities, Immigration being the more complicated and potentially troublesome activity) in Vancouver, and your flight to Chicago will be treated as a domestic flight. Thus you will not need to claim your bags in Chicago, they will be checked through to Nashville, unless you are changing airlines (and those airlines don't interline, like Southwest).
  5. Nobody is going to have that info, as it is proprietary. Many will guess, though.
  6. Our flight was before the work at SFO. No impact there. Returned yesterday BOS-SFO. Our flight was 15 minutes early.
  7. Looking into it...they run the 772 on that route pretty regularly now. Not when I originally booked the flight. But it was UA's new Polaris hard product. Liked it a lot.
  8. Just stayed at a pretty high end hotel. They put a $150/ day hold above the amount the room was costing. It happens in MANY locations.
  9. Don't recall one. But there is lots of stuff in the pantry. So if there isn't anything the cabin attendants can set up a supply of ice in the pantry for you.
  10. The better place for your research would be the portion of Cruise Critic devoted to MSC, located here: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/49-msc-cruises/
  11. I would start by looking at what the cruise line offers. That would give you some ideas of sites to see. Then, some research on this board: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/148-british-isleswestern-europe/ for things others have done, or recommend, would be beneficial. Lastly, you should only do what interests you, not what anyone tells you is "must do".
  12. Hilton Paris Opera. Great, classy hotel close to virtually everything.
  13. Have you looked on the West Coast Departures board, where Vancouver is commonly covered? Lots of recommendations over there.
  14. The issue here is NOT Customs, which is about your property entering another country, and is usually very easily, particularly in Europe. The issue is Immigration, or Passport Check, and can be far more complicated, when you consider Visa or other requirements. There is a significant difference between Immigration and Customs.
