Rio de Janeiro
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Plenty to see and do and Rio is relatively cheap. Food is plentiful and of good quality particularly the seafood buffet at Marius Restaurant at Copacobana Beach.

Madeira (Funchal)
Toboggan Rides Rating: 5+ out of 5+
A Fabulous port with beautiful beaches, botanical gardens, cable car ride is fantastic with magnificent views. The toboggan rides are exhilarating. The markets are well worth a visit for great souenir shopping and fresh fruit.It is a very pretty place. From where the ships dock it is an easy walk into the city, past many restaurants and cafes and a oceanside park.

Malta (Valletta)
City Tour Rating: Not Rated
We also visited several other ports that are not listed on the port options. Salvador de Bahia - Brazil - Very boring and not much to see

Recife - Brazil - Dirty and a bit boring unless you visit the markets in the olde gaol cells (very interesting - good prices)

Malaga - Spain - very nice, great seafood paella right near where the ships dock. The cathedral is beautiful. Hop on hop off bus is a good way to see lots.

Alicante - Spain - also very nice. Hop on hop off bus is also the best way to go.

Disembarkation port of Venice was fabulous. Must do a gondola ride, walk on the bridge of sighs, visit the street vendors at come out at night. Venice is expensive but savour the moment.
