  1. I just got off the Dutch and French Adventure cruise which had 2 days at Le Havre. We did one day trip into Paris (Paris Sightseeing without Lunch), but the 2nd day we did Rouen and really enjoyed both. Rouen is very pretty. There is an extremely old, beautiful church that you tour and then the guide takes you on a short walk along a beautiful historic road with lots of shops to the spot where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. Take a look at that one too and don't rule out Paris because you have kids! They do stop halfway to a very clean, new gas station right on the highway for a bathroom break and with a few minutes to buy a quick snack to eat on the bus.
  2. I'm on the same cruise as MarkM. Only the leg from Amsterdam to Le Havre, France was impacted by this change so I don't believe it to be an issue with the ship. The speed restrictions was the reasoning Royal gave as an explanation.
  3. We are doing Paris Sightseeing without Lunch. Should be relabeled Paris Sightseeing without Dinner! ? May have time for a quick bite during the hour stop at the Eiffel Tower.
  4. We are slated to do the upcoming 7 night Dutch and French Adventure cruise on Explorer of the Seas this month which includes two days at Le Havre (Paris). Originally, we were to arrive at Le Havre at 10 am but now its been pushed back to 12 pm due to speed restrictions. That means our 8 hour trip to Paris now leaves at 12:25 pm and gets back by 10:25 pm. Per the latest Cruise Compass for that ship, it appears our only dinner options are Johnny Rockets (until 11 pm), Cafe Promenade (assuming they have sandwiches), and room service. Do you think with so many excursions now delayed until after dinner service, they would have more options for us - maybe keep the Windjammer open longer? Most excursions to Paris, Normandy, Versailles, Mont Saint Michel and other places are 8+ hours, so there will be many of us in this situation. Thinking dinner service will be empty that day! Thank you in advance!

  6. We ran into this issue too! We booked our cruise and had to pay in full the next day. A few days later, we decided to add a travel agent since we were well within the 60 day window. It was denied at first, by Michelle at MEI was able to get it transferred to her. Fingers crossed they can get yours transferred too!
  7. We just booked the same cruise for our 15th wedding anniversary. We are first time Royal Caribbean cruisers but are gold level with Disney Cruise Lines. I think the closest we can get for a similar compass is the one posted for the Explorer from this past May posted on this website as at least it has Southampton and Le Havre on it?
