Bowker - Answered a Question by daggers (07 Feb 09 23:04)

Hello, sounds like we are on the same cruise, if you go to the find box at the top of this page put in the name Bowker and then scroll down you will see I asked the same question on the 13th August, Wilba has sorted out Casablanca there are also a couple of answers for Malaga or Seville. Regards.

In Lanzarote, the ships dock in the middle of nowhere, so you wouldn't want to walk off the ship. However, the local authorities lay on free shuttle buses to the nearest resort, Costa Teguise. In Tenerife, you dock in Santa Cruz, a big town, so could walk around there. We got a taxi to Puerto de la Cruz. The taxi drivers were offering various set tours for a fixed price, if you wanted to see more of the island. Going to Malaga this summer - my research shows you can wander the town or get a taxi tour, plus it has a good beach(but maybe not in March!) Sorry can't help with the rest, but Casablanca sounds like it might be a bit dodgy on your own, unless you are brave..... Isn't Seville inland?

In Malaga RCI provide Shuttle bus (charge payable) but once off the bus and through gates turn left and use red hop on/off tourist bus, 15 euro each, for all day. Decide the sites you like, and go back on bus to see, (keep tickets and get a 10% discount in Cadiz.) (Cadiz walk from ship), and if you like walking no need for tour bus) Both cities are beautiful. Casablanca is an experience, and can be overpowering. Shuttle bus (charge payable) drops you in city centre and your left to your own devices. this is one city we would probably wish we had paid for excursion. Lanzarote. RCI provide shuttle (charge payable). Once off bus, We got a taxi (15 Euro each way) to Teguise which is well worth the expense as its off tourist trial. (Always agree price beforehaqnd). Tenerife you can walk into town (past rows of taxis touting for business and reluctant to take no for an answer, but once in town a tram is available to La Laguna 1.3 euro each way or buses to Puerto De La Cruz, takes about 40 minutes, about 10 Euro each. If you plan to shop, do this early as shops shut for Siesta, and sight see whilst they are closed. Due to size of ships some of the ports are not photogenic, but well worth exploring further. RCI charge between $5-10 for return for shuttles and you can pay via your seapass card on boarding coach to avoid queuing at guest relations. Hope this helps.

22 sleeps

By Stacey Williams

Sorry I am going to become ‘that’ person who feels the need to countdown to her holiday every day. In fact I take back my apology as I do love a countdown. We have just three weeks (and one night) until we head off on our amazing Caribbean cruise. The weather has been very cold in Scotland the past few days so we are well in need of some sunshine!!! Over the past week we have been going through our check list of things to do and we are done I think…Cruise Personaliser &#...

Ever wondered what really happens on a cruise ship behind closed doors? Well here it is exactly seen through the eyes of someone who used to work on a cruise ship me!Nearly 27 years ago I flew to Vancouver to join the original Love Boat, Pacific Princess, in Alaska as a Junior Bar Stewardess. I had worked in hotels for a few years so was not worried about the hard work but nothing could prepare me for what I was about to experience.Even now I remember my first day, arriving at the pier side,...
