San Juan
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Go see El Morro, and walk up the hill that Teddy Roosevelt rode up. Go to Barrachina's and have a pina colada. If you have time, do not miss the rain forest. Stay in a hotel on the beach. Best restaurant in town, Marmalade, is fantastic, and the owners come to chat with you. $75 per person and worth every cent.

St. Maarten
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
If you have missed Diamonds International or Little Switzerland in other Caribbean ports, this is your chance. Actually, there is nothing worth buying that you can't get from a reputable source on the net. Easy walk to and from the ship.

Canadas del Teide Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Nice tour halfway up Mt. Teide. Interesting rock formations; you are above the tree line and there is not much vegetation at the highest point the tour takes you.

Not much to do in town; many of the same as in Caribbean ports.

Seville (Cadiz)
Alcazar Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Huge palace, extensive grounds, Arab style built by Arabs for Catholics.

Cadiz Walking Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Great Siege Tunnels Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Interesting fortifications. You do not need to go to the end.

Rock of Gibraltar Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Do not miss this. Take a private tour or use a cab as they can get higher. The apes will jump on you and your car. You can see Africa. Did I mention the apes?

St. Michael's Cave Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Natural cave in the Rock. Easy to walk.

World War II Tunnels Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Interesting to see defenses.

Palma de Mallorca
Valldemossa Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Valdemossa is a very interesting little town. Everyone has flowers around the entrance to their house.

Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Endless things to do. Don't miss Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi houses and parks. Walk La Rambla from one end to the other.
