If you'd be interested in a Westbound TransAtlantic (Southampton to NYC) with pre-cruise in Paris and London (with options to book all or just part of the pre-cruise or if you just want the transit), click the link below and vote:

What type of pricing would that be for say late April or anytime in May? I know exact pricing can't be given so estimates are more than fine.

Excellent proposal Nick, I especially like the suggestion of both Paris and London pre-cruise. Might I be the first to suggest a Paris hotel: Champs Elysees Plaza Hotel

Now you KNOW my answer is yes! I'll recommend The Hotel Pont Royal on the Left Bank - that's where we stayed last year.

Love the Eurostar idea too!

Wow, I wasn't expecting so many responses so fast! Guess you guys like the idea. Now, here's a question - Tina told me that the Disney group looks like it might frizzle out, that would open up April/May in 2010, however, we DO have the double transit scheduled for 2010 and people maybe forced to pick one over the other and not be able to do both. Shall we leave it at 2011 or would you like to try for 2010?

For an April/May Westbound crossing expect to pay about $1200-$1300 per person for an inside (double) or $1400-1500 for a balcony.

Without question it's an interested proposal. I voted for Maybe since I can't commit this far out. Depending on the size of the group, you might want to check out Hotel Mayfair http://www.paris-hotel-mayfair.com/en_content/index.php the location is great!

This is actual excellent pricing. Just for fun, I went on kayak.com and priced what a flight would cost me from Philly to Heathrow round trip. Based on leaving May 2, 2009 and returning May 9, 2009 the best price was $904 per person, the best price for a non-stop was $920 per person. Now considering all I did was get myself back and forth to England, $1200 - $1300 for a Transatlantic is a steal!

I can't commit to anything as far away as 2011 but, I will check in from time to time if this group actually forms. It's something I would consider!

Ok Nick, since response is overwhelmingly positive already, I'm making this official. You now have April/May 2011 blocked for this Paris, London and Transatlantic sailing. And, yes, I will be joining you! Wouldn't miss this one for the world! Here's the link to sign up for the opt-in newsletter to be kept up-to-date for pricing, itinerary, etc:

You better be a good boy Nick, I have friends in high places. Captain If you make me hide in the staff offices I can have you thrown in the brig or have laxatives slipped into your pasta sauce at dinner stickingtongueout

(Actually, I am really looking forward to sailing with you and Leanna, I think James and I are going to get along with you great!)

Marina, I think the Baltics cruise is being planned for later in the year. Westbound TA in April/early May and then Baltics in August/September.

Oh I'm sure I'll be coming up with fun things to do with the group! Dinners, private parties, perhaps even some other special mixer type activities. Very Happy
