    Hi Nicole, May 6, 2012 is not a definite departure date yet, but that’s the date I booked on. Where did you look? Just on the European Whirl main website?

    Hey,I booked the 31st of may for the european whirl, they said it’s a definite departure,so hope all will be good,can’t wait to meet new people and have some good times

    I haven’t found anyone who’s booked the same date as me either. My understanding is that I’d get moved to a definite departure day, which looks like either the 27th of April or the 20th of May when I look at the definite departure day calendar. Maybe the departure dates are different for different countries because I don’t see the 31st of may on the calendar either. Hm? Can anyone help explain this to me?

    I found out that different countries departure dates are a little different depending on when you leave for London. I leave the USA on the 6th of May, but the tour officially starts the 8th of May so I am technically booked on the 8th of May European Whirl, and it’s officially a definite departure date!!!

    Hi Natasha, contiki just notified me saying the 4th may tour has been cancelled so now i have to decide if im going to do the whirl on the 8th or i might do the european experience on the 4th may..

    Hey Nicole, sorry to hear about your tour being cancelled. European experience looks awesome! The riveria would be great, but that tour doesn’t include Prague, which was definitely at the top of my list. That’s a tough choice, but let me know what you decide! Best wishes.
