I am a local from malta - if you want you have a shuttle bus service to valletta just outside the port at a minimal charge. so, you can avoid the walk too. valletta is worth visiting - do not miss st. john's cathedral and upper barrakka. by the way, locals speak english well and will help you for sure. if you need something to ask before your cruise, just ask and i will try my best to answer you before your cruise. avoid cabby rides....expensive!!! have a nice holiday and enjoy your visit especially in malta. it is good weather at the moment in malta.

Re your question on the distance to the town in malta. it is not that far but it is avery steep walk and you should be aware that it envolves a lot of steps . i was 67 when i did it and it was a struggle but worth it .

We caught the local service bus at the dockside, drops you right in the centre of Valletta, great place, plenty to see and do, shops also good, very pleasant downhill with some steps back to ship or again catch the bus. enjoy, we did.

The last time I stepped aboard Independance of the Seas was in 2008 when she was brand new and I was invited to Southampton for a guided tour on board.

Well its getting to that time of year when Christmas is on the forefront of everyone’s mind so I thought I would write about something loosely based on travel but also a bit personal to me instead of my regular cruise blog.You see I have had my pet greyhound Marko for going on 6 years now and he is a massive part of our little family. He is a truly remarkable dog and has done and achieved more than many humans could put their name to so I’m massively proud of him. As much as I lov...
