Gibraltar
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Don't try & take the cable car to the top of the rock!! We waited literally for hours & then gave up & took a minibus taxi.......Much better solution.

Las Ramblas was fun & worth a visit to see the human statues.

We paid to see into the casino ( You need your passport) what a let down!! I guess it was mid afternoon but most unimpressive. Fabulous atmosphere of wealth with amazing cars if you are a "Petrol Head" like me! Beautiful gardens & fountains....Well worth a visit.

Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We took the train from Civitavecchia + local buses.Quite a challenge as we don't speak Italian!We managed to visit St. Peters & Trevi Fountain....Brilliant. Only cost us 9 Euros each for train & bus day pass!!

Naples
Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+
Naples on a Sunday has very little to offer.Should have gone to Capri or Sorrento.Hydrofoil is expensive & return trips not frequent so be careful!

Nice relaxing day on the beach recharging batteries.Quite a pleasant beach in close walking distance from the port.Very pretty Island.

Port Rating: Not Rated
Malaga is a Typical Spanish resort.We took the local bus to visit the Dolphin & Sealion show down the coast. The tourist Information girl told us bus 110 approx. 15 mins. The correct bus but 1 hour & 15mins!! Great value bus only 5 Euros each way for all four of us. The show was well worth the visit. We were lucky to arrive just before the main show at 12 noon.....otherwise!! Had to be back onboard by 3.30 so time was very tight.....Don't miss the ship they will sail without you!!??
