Brugge (Bruges)
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
The ship docks at Zeebrugge, but Brugge is just a short 20-minute drive away. It is a beautiful old town, full of canals and great shops and cute restaurants. Despite the pouring rain, we loved our day here. We took a ship excursion that took us to a chocolate-making demonstration. Afterwards, we had independent time to explore.

Santiago de Compostela Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Our day of touring in Vigo and Santiago de Compostela was in the pouring rain. Despite the crazy weather, we loved Santiago and the charming streets of the area. We hired a private guide; unfortunately, her English wasn't very good and we wasted a lot of time trying to help her out with words. She was able to get us into the cathedral during a service and we got to see the giant incense burner swing through the church. Amazing! It was a lovely day, capped off by lunch a very traditional Spanish restaurant.

Barcelona remains our favorite city in Europe. On prior trips, we only had one night to spend here. But this time we did two days. What an amazing city! This was the debarkation port for this cruise and we booked our stay at the W Hotel. It is right on the Mediterranean and is within walking distance to everything in the city. The food, the people, the sites, it is all just incredible. Leaving was tough. But we are looking forward to returning.

Amsterdam was our port of embarkation. It is a beautiful city with so much to see. We visited the Heineken brewery, ate at some fabulous bakeries, enjoyed an Argentinian dinner one night and, of course, wandered through the Red Light District. We stayed at the Hotel Pulitzer, which is a 5-star hotel right on one of the canals. Amsterdam is an easy city to traverse as English is widely spoken and everything is within walking distance.
