A group of 15 Cruise Critics organized a taxis convoy to the famous Cuban American restaurant, Versailles, in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. We had a magnificent meal of traditional Cuban cuisine. Some of our members picked up some cigars for the voyage.
we have been to Ponta Delgada three times previously and had done all the interior island tours. But, we had never spent time in the port city, Ponta Delgada. After the ship was cleared and the "hurry up gang" were off and running we went into town for a leisurely look. We hired a taxi driver who spoke excellent English for 2 hours for 30 Euros. He showed us the usual tourist sites (the old fort, the cathedral, the tourist shopping, etc.) but then showed us the various residential areas from poor to affluent.
