Now, the entire schedule is almost completely open even at this time of the year.
We are going to spend time in the Lake District, Yorkshire dales and westernish Scotland. Any suggestions for destinations?

We flew out of St. Louis, Mo to Chicago and thence to London on the 27th of May. We spent three days in London, walking around and seeing the sights. We visited the Tower of London and Westminster Cathedral.
On 31 May, we boarded the Norwegian Jade at Southampton. Our first visit was to Le Havre, France on 1 June. We walked around the city, and took the tour train. The weather was very nice. We enjoyed visits to Falmouth, England; Cobh, Ireland; Dublin, Ireland; Belfast, Northern Ireland; Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland; Invergordon (Inverness), Scotland; Queensferry (Edinburgh), Scotland; Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Brugge, Belgium. We returned late Saturday evening, and are still recovering from jet lag.
All in all, an excellent trip. The weather was great, and the cruise staff was outstanding. We met a number of wonderful people.
Be prepared to spend more per ounce than you would on any other chunk of metal.

Go to a good music store and talk to 'em. Talk to local trumpeteers (is that a word?) and solicit opinions. Be prepared to spend more per ounce than you would on any other chunk of metal.
