    I'd happily do that trip again but you wouldn't catch me at sea on a boat for 7 or 9 days ! Yikes.
    I've only taken the Eurostar to between Paris and London.
    I would like to visit Brussels, again.

    The initial plan, it seems, is to arrive Southhampton, and spend the night around there, then arrange transport to London, spend a day or so, then Eurostar to Brussels or Paris. Spend a day or two, and on to Vienna.
    On the way home, perhaps Frankfurt or Colgne, to Hamburg.
    I am assuming, though that January is not the best time for being a tourists in the region.
    If we miss our ship the 8th of January, we would either be stuck in Europe for the winter, of be forced to Fly home. The Mrs would probably have my head for THAT.
    It does have a major advantage in that there are fewer tourists around so no long queues to get in to see the sights and the locals aren't too jaded with all the visitors. The cities like vienna and london were built before mechanised transport most of the interesting bits on a short visit are within walking distance of each other, driving in vienna is no fun and neither is getting somewhere to park. At least for you they will not be on the wrong side of the road.

    We only saw Brussels train station as we got on a train to Bruges, very pretty place and I'd happily go back.

    I've never been to Paris, it doesn't appeal to me one bit.

    Wow Lars - this sounds like a trip of a lifetime..

    We flew to Paris in 1999 - long flight - don't think I could do that again.

    Your trip sounds wonderful. A Cruise is a great way to travel - we're looking into a Cruise.
