Vigo
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Nice little port very close to the ship so not much walking if you had difficulties in that area, however not much there apart from a small shopping centre

Las Palmas
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Actually it was Gran Canaria but not in the selection, the was the best stop. Never been there before so hired a taxi for half a day. The taxi driver spoke very good English and took us where we wanted to go, basically where the locals go and not the tourist. We went up into the mountains and had the most spectacular views over the Island, visited old towns with cobble streets local people out in the streets dancing to local bands, it was a lovely atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome. It was also very hot

Absolutely loved Madeira but have been there on holiday a couple of times, didn't go on a tour because the weather was not too good very cloudy which was disappointing because it is a beautiful Island. So just looked around the very quaint unspoilt town.

This was actually La Corunna Northern Spain no option to select. This was a very quiet town very close to the port however we got there on a religious holiday and it was closed,the weather was bad so we had a quick walk around and back to the ship a little disappointing but i am sure this would be very inviting in the Summer as it was a very pretty stop
