Transatlantic to the Mediterranean on Maasdam

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

This is our second time to do this cruise. We have enjoyed it so much that we have again booked it for 2013. The days at sea are easy and enjoyable, the seas somewhat bumpy but not sickening, and the ship and staff perfect.

The cruise first stops in the Canary Islands, one day at each of the three islands. The islands are beautiful. At the last port, Arrecife, we participated in Timanfaya tour and RODE a camel. Wow! We'll do it again.

We didn't enjoy the two ports in Morocco and consequently, stayed on board to enjoy the ship. We had been here previously and we felt no need to see Casablanca and Tangier again.

Spain (Almeria,Barcelona,Cadiz,Palma), Italy(Civitavecchia,Naples,Sardinia), Gibraltar,Portugal (Lisbon,Funchal)fill out the itinerary for the cruise. We were amazed again by all the ports. We also did well to find some terrific local wines which were reasonably priced.

A word a caution: Do not take traveler's check regardless if they are in More euros or not. The merchants and the banks won't cash them. And the ship will take them only after they have converted them back to dollars and give the exchange in euros. A pricey mistake for thinking about secured funds. Less
