    This will be the first year since owning a Zed i have not done a Cruise abroad, so i am planning on doing one hopefully next July to Slovenia going through the Alps.
    The route will go through Reims, Grand Ballon, Mullhouse taking the Sustenpasse to Oberwald spending 2 nights here, the first night is the arrival night the second night to enable us to visit Andermatte and Grindlewald to see the Eiger (again) then going over to the Julierpasse to our Hotel, this will hopefully be La Brace in Forcola, where we will spend 3 nights to go out and visit places like Livigno and St Moritz, we then hopefuly travel to Castel Pergine in Trento for 1 night before travelling on to Slovenia and hopefully staying at Hotel Vile Park in Portoroz, where we will hopefully spend 6 nights. I have not yet worked out the return route but i am hoping to come back through Austria and Germany.
    Below is Links of the Hotels we hope to be staying at

    That looks a great route Bill. I planned something similar a year or so back, but haven't got anywhere near organising it yet...

    I have been planning it for a couple of months now. Hotels are the biggest issue as i can not book them till around September as they usually only allow you to book 10 months in advance. Not doing it for the Passes as we did over 14 last year so i will be picking out what i think are the best ones and using the days to visit the quant little villages and towns.

    Have been down there many times by car and air for my work at the time. Lots of good mates made and one of them had a Z, that's where I caught the bug, I used to borrow it day time as he worked nights in the Casino in Portoroz. Lots of good B roads to drive and many places to visit. Food? Well, I used to nip across to Italy if I got the chance.
    (Portoroz means pink port, Bad Boy would like that)

    This is worth a visit, its on your way down to the coast.

    Dates now set for this. 10/7/15 which is a Friday and return Monday 27/7/15. I will be booking our Hotels in either July or August this year which ever is the earliest Booking.com will allow. The route back is still in the planning stage. If anyone wants to tag along they are free to do so, but will need to book the hotels as soon as they can as they do tend to fill up quite quickly. If any one needs approx costs it should be around £1500 for accommodation £750 ish for fuel £140 for euro tunnel and around £100 for tolls. Also a Swiss motorway permit will need to be purchased at around £30. Cost should come to no more than £2500 plus spending. I will be putting together some itineraries for each day hoping to get the most out of the Cruise.
    At present there is me and maurice
    If anyone requires additional information please feel free to ask
