Hey, I tried to reply to your question on the forum but the computer wouldn't let me. But I have the same problem, im 19 and planning on going on the European explorer leaving august 11 2013. So I'm assuming ill be the youngest because its a timeout tour so its the more expensive hotels and I think its 33 days. But if im going all the way to Europe I'd rather spend the extra money and stay in nice hotels. When were you planning on going?
