    AlanS Thanks for all your wonderful info. I am so glad that you mentioned many of the things I had read about & already listed as possibilities. What time of year did you go and how was the weather? We are going Sept.9 -28. Then extending on our own for another week in Switzerland. Just wondering how much layering we need, or if we should bring a heavy jacket. Thx again.

    12 June 2014 departure. Beautiful, mostly blue skies w/scattered clouds- check out my pics. During the entire tour we had only one brief shower while we were inside touring the Passion Play theater in Oberammergau and a little misting in Monstien outside of Davos, Switzerland. Temps were in the mid-60's to 70s except at altitude where it was cooler and where we wore a regular or lightweight fleece vest. I wore a mix of short and long sleeve shirts. My wife carried a lightweight, long sleeve sweater and wore it sometimes, but she mostly wore a light rain jacket or fleece vest. There was absolutely no need for a heavy coat when we went, even at the summit of the Zugspitze or Grossglockner pass. Since you will be travelling by bus it is easy to layer- you leave extra layers (vest, sweater, etc.) on the bus if not needed at a particular stop. Touristic and no longer on the tour : ( The summit of the Zugspitze, tallest mountain in Germany, was in the clouds and it was cool but not cold enough for a heavy coat. Broken clouds and sun but warmer on Grossglockner pass:

    Dear British and Mr. B. Is this trip OK for those who don’t have good sea legs? Rockin’ and rollin’ on the sea is not in my DNA. Thanks for the review.

    The first night, we were indeed rockin and rollin, the ship was swaying from side to side and up and down, I am sure I lifted off the bed and back down on it several times. It was not pleasant but we were Ok. There were not many people at breakfast that day and I understand there was sea sickness. Another night was a little rough, otherwise the ship was smooth sailing at night but some rockiness during the days following the rough nights. Some more info. On this tour, the Gala dinner on the first night, I only saw one man in a sports coat, there could have been more but not many. The dress was very casual. All other nights people dressed down. Then, on the last night, when we were told there was no need to dress up for the farewell dinner, more people dressed up than we had seen all week and a couple of men wore suits which looked really odd. The Blue Lagoon.——I don’t think I was the only woman who was concerned about the logistics of going to the Blue Lagoon and then straight on to the airport to return home. Some people were staying in an hotel for an extra night so they had no worries. It was Ok, we had plastic bags to put our wet swimsuits in and there were hairdryers so it was not too bad. We really loved the experience and could have lounged in the pool all day. You have to be aware that you must strip down naked in front of everyone else and shower before you go in the pool, if you do not, the sttemdadmts shout st you. Note, it is strongly advisable not to wear ANY jewelery in the lagoon, it is safest on the locked bus. Both of us had trouble getting the provided lockers staying locked shut with the fancy electronic wristbands.

Polar Bear: The distinctly identifying white fur of polar bears is in fact an optical illusion. Beneath their thick coat, polar bears actually have black skin! Their hollow fur is translucent and only appears white because it reflects visible light, just like snow. Climate also plays a role in the coloration of polar bear fur. Where colder temperat...

A listing of the world's largest museums puts the Louvre in Paris on top with 782,910 square feet of floor place. St. Petersburg’s Hermitage comes in a close second with 719,480 square feet. But if you make the comparison based on the number of art pieces in each collection, you get a different picture. The collection at the Louvre conta...
