St. Michael's Cave Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Gibraltar a beautiful place, steeped in history, but let me warn you about the Barbary apes, as cute as they look they are notorious for pinching anything that moves especially food, drinks, handbags and cameras. We witnessed an ape pinch a slush puppy drink from the hands of a small girl she was left with just the straw whilst the ape proceeded to enjoy the slush puppy. It's also a lovely place to shop with a Marks & Spencer's,BHS and many more British shops.

Barcelona: well I've been about five times and still find the city exuberating, lively and utterly stunning, the best way to see the city is by open top bus you can get on and off as and when, but do not miss the Gaudi cathedral

Cannes & Monte Carlo: unfortunately I was ill the day we docked so we missed this trip a word of warning it's a tender that takes you to the harbour. Our American friends went on a trip booked on ship way too much walking they were shattered, but 100% glad they made the effort. They said both places we amazing and not a trip to be missed even if the Casino was closed due to a strike.

Palma De Mallorca is another beautiful place I've been several times you can even shop at C&A's and again it has a beautiful cathedral and a lovely harbour. We did the tour on foot it was easy to find the places you wanted to see.

Vigo a pretty little place kind of spoilt by a monstrosity of a shopping centre as soon as you get off the ship, It's worth going up into the quaint little streets, but be warned to see the town you have to climb a steep hill whichever way you head into the centre, I needed my wheelchair and my partner was shattered after pushing me up the hill.
