This is a delightful small island with Mahon being the second deepest natural harbour in the world -- after Pearl Harbor apparently ! It's only about 10 miles North to South and 25 miles East to West with Mahon, the present capital, in the East and Ciutadella, the old capital, in the West.
We took an Azamara bus excursion round the island which made about 6 stops for photo opportunities ranging from 10 minutes to 1.5 hour in Ciutadella. The guide was an English women who lives in Menorca all year round and she was very informative. Well worth the 37 Euros each.
Bordeaux (Rating 5) ================= Very impressed with the architecture and cleanliness of this City. It doesn't appear to be on the itinerary of many cruises perhaps because it is only accessible to smaller ships -- one big advantage of the Azamara ships.
Gijon (Rating 2) ============== Least said the better
La Caruna (Rating 3) ==================== OK but nothing special to write home about
