London and Paris or Rome for cruise

Jump to last reply

I need the advice of the many talented travellers on this board! Last night I was able to place on hold 2 FF tickets to London LHR, arriving June 2nd at 10am and returning June 15th at 10:20am for myself and my 14 year old daughter. We have found a 10 night cruise that leaves from Rome June 3rd for a pretty decent price. (I cannot get FF tickets into Rome, only LHR or possibly Gatwick.)

I like the itinerary of the cruise with stops in Naples, Genoa, Sicily, Nice and 2 Greek islands. It will cost $2800 for the two of us plus another $400 to get us to Rome and back once we land at LHR.

My dilema is should we do the cruise or should we stay in London for a few days, and build another European itinerary based on London as a starting and stopping point? We'd have 13 days.

Budget is a big consideration, and I'm wondering if the $2800 we'd spend on the cruise seeing the 7 cities would go as far if we did a London,Paris and maybe one other city trip. (I know there will be more expenses with the cruise to consider like the shore excursions and tips etc.)

I'm leaning towards the cruise because it seems "easier" but I'm wondering if it is the best thing to do for a first time trip to Europe for my daughter.

She also wants to see some of London if possible either at the beginning or the end of the trip. What advice to you have for us? Is it too ambitious to try to spend a day in London, fly to Rome for the cruise on June 3rd, return to London on the 13th and stay there until the 15th?

We probably won't be back to Europe again for 4-5 years....that's how long it'll take to build up the miles again!LOL.

What do you think?
