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.
