Wigg - Answered a Question by Gronow (29 Jan 09 21:51)

When we went on this cruise a few weeks ago, they were no longer offering the day trip to Marrakesh, so it may well not be an option. We booked the excursion to Taroudant, which is much nearer and supposed to be a 'mini-Marrakesh'. Unfortunately, we could not dock due to high winds, so I am unable to tell you whether Taroudant is worth visiting! However I understand that the drive from Agadir to Marrakesh is extremely long and tiring, so this may be why it was withdrawn.

Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...

Fred Olsen have long been one of my favourite cruise lines, Braemar was the first ship I ever did a ” proper cruise”. When I say proper I mean not a mini cruise or ship visit as it was a 14 night Canary Islands sailing.In the last couple of years Braemar has been one of the lines ships that have started to do river cruising. Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...
