Iberian Cruise Diaries, Part Five: The Conclusion

(Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four)

I forgot to add these photos to Part Four - we had a look round Cadiz after our excursion. It was a lovely city with lots of great little shops, plus we discovered the beauty that is Smöoy! It is a frozen yoghurt company, created in Spain, and it was just wonderful! Lots of delicious options to choose from. I had some sort of vanilla, chocolate and peanut butter sundae which was yummy! Lets hope they come over to the UK soon!

Our fifth and final port of call was La Coruna, Spain. We decided to venture out by ourselves and head in to the city centre, which was not far from the ship. There were loads of shops; chocolate shops, clothing shops, grocery shops, homewares, gifts, you name it! We also saw some very talented human statues!

So, overall, I did enjoy the cruise - especially the excursions we went on. But... I felt a little underwhelmed and I think that is due to the fact that the cruise to Norway (our first) was absolutely amazing and we sailed with Royal Caribbean who go all-out on their ships. P&O's Azura was a lovely ship, but I feel it was suited to a slightly older generation as I got bored easily and didn't feel like there was much for us to do. Also, the swimming pools all closed from about 6pm, which I think is pretty ridiculous! Location-wise, I'm not particularly eager to re-visit any of the ports we visited, whereas I could actually see us living in Norway, I loved it so much! I did enjoy everything on the ship being in british pounds, as Royal Caribbean is in US dollars. I think if we did decide to cruise again, we would either use Royal Caribbean again, or a completely different company, and find out exactly what's on board before we decided.

Have you been on a cruise? Is it something you would like to do?

  1. Wow! Never been on a cruise other than the overnight crossing from Hull to Rotterdam which doesn't really count. Can you feel the motion on a ship that size? I'm bad for seasickness!

  2. I'd love to do a cruise crossing over to New York on a liner.

  4. I think you get used to it pretty quickly. Out of the two cruises we've been on, I'd say I only really felt the motion strongly a couple of times, when the sea was very rough. Sea sickness tablets are a good idea. :) xxx
