    hey! Im going to be doing this tour late jan/feb next year too. Not decided on an exact date though, would like to get to know people that are going and seeing if there’s a date most people are picking! I too am going on my own so would be good to know of a couple people doing it on their own before setting off. You heard of anyone else doing your date?

    I am in the process of booking my trip for Feb. 21st on the Grand Explorer! I don’t know which city to start in though… I have been on the London, Paris, and Rome tour and thought it was great!! I am traveling again by myself and hoping to meet a few people before this trip though.

    anyone else going then? or have any suggestions on where to start for the trip?

    I haven’t booked it officially as in paid for it yet but I am reserved on it according to my Travel Agent, it will likely be official sometime this week.

    I’m going solo from Canada, I’ll be turning 26 on this tour and I am excited!!
    Also I am throwing in the Auckland explorer as well before the tour.

    I had my 25th on a tour in Australia earlier this year and that was a blast!
