    I`ve just had a look at the shore excursions on offer by DCL for our cruise in July and came across this one for when we dock at Warnemunde.

    "Building the Disney Dream - Shipyard Visit"
    Be part of the most exclusive tour to ever be offered to Disney Cruise Line! On this tour, you`ll be flown by private chartered plane to Papenburg, home of the World renowned Meyer Werft shipyard and birthplace of German iron shipbuilding. Here, you will have a guided tour of the incredible facility, including viewing the Disney Dream, which is currently under construction.

    The only problem is that we will only be at Warnemunde for one day and I so want to see Berlin [Brandenburg Gate, remains of the Wall etc.etc.]
    Decisions, decisions.

    Oh wow. Tough call, they both sound brilliant! Will you be back that way another time? If so I think I'd take the excursion as it seems a bit more "once in a lifetime" since the next time you pass through the Dream will most likely be completed.

    Terry,

    Here's my tuppence. For what it's worth.

    Berlin will be there for quite a while yet. At least I think it will. If you really want to see Berlin, it wouldn't be out of the question for you and Sue to pop over there at almost any time.

    However, the Dream goes into service in 2011. It won't be there after that. I would view seeing it being constructed as a once in a lifetime experience that would never be available again.

    That's how I feel. Of course, if I were going along, Carol might have slightly different ideas.
    In that case, I'd be wrong.

    Tom (... who knows which side of the toast the jam goes on!)

    That`s very true Tom [and Becca].
    Oddly enough, despite the fact that I have visited over 40 countries so far [mainly thanks to my job], I have not been to several of the places on this cruise even though they are on my doorstep!
    As you say, we could always take a mini break to Berlin if we fancied it later.
    I suppose I`d better check on the cost of the trip to the shipyard before making a hasty decision though!

    Agreed. I read "chartered plane" and started seeing lots of these $$$$$$$$

    But then again, you could be surprised! It might be quite reasonable!

    OUCH!!!!The decision has been made for me!
    The cost for this tour is $2,900 per person [even children!]

    Brandenburg Gate, here we come!

    Whoa.

    I was afraid of that. Disney doesn't sell their "secrets" on the cheap, now do they?

    Just wow.

    Tom (... can't argue with that logic!)
