Watching the moon on board the SUN
Our final port was Ponta del Gado in the Azores. This newly built cruise ship section makes it easy to walk from the ship to the city. A long walkway follows the water where one can watch fishing boats or sail boats or water polo players. Cobblestone walkways in the main city mean wear good shoes. Many interesting shops here with a cash only policy. The black and white stone work will fascinate you.
The Arts and Crafts classes offered started with paper flowers and this led us into pre packaged amazing kits. These when made More up make great gifts for crew members one really felt were special friends.
The space on the back of deck 11 offered shade or sun, and clear views of the moon too. Sometimes it was difficult to find dining seating inside the Garden Cafe, so out here on deck seating was more available. On nice days the pool area was full and of course people save their seats and don't use them for hours! 5 hot tubs made relaxing really great!
There were times when an offered event was so well attended the seating was difficult to find. Being a smaller ship I guess this is just the way it is. The Art Auctions this cruise were fantastic,with a plenitude of art offerings and a team with knowledge to share. Very friendly group.
We went to Las Ramblas each evening to listen to the professional entertainer Kim Doolittle. With her amazing voice,guitar playing and knowledge of songs with trivia about them thrown in, she was awesome. Our favorite performer for sure. The hypnotist on board, Nadeem Manuel, has changed my life is a short time. She was most generous with her knowledge, really knows how to listen, has a great sense of humor and understands people too well!
Never before have we had hawks stowe away on a ship but two stayed with us and would circle the ship during the day and sit on wires for the night. Several small birds were on board too so animal life was abundant. It really comes down to what one likes to do so if you don't have a good time, it's your own fault! Happy cruising. Less
Cabin review: IF6310 Inside
Deck 6A id very quiet but at first hard to locate! The shower felt larger than on some ships. Always clean and well supplied. We had an inside cabin and rarely heard fellow passengers. Even had a small couch in the cabin and a desk. The color TV was not working well but we spent little time in the room.Read All Inside (IF) Reviews >>
