Vigo
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
An interesting and major fishing port but would have preferred to have spent this time heading south for more warmth.

Lisbon has always been on our to do list but one day was long enough.

Used the open top bus and suggest that others just do the red route, the blue route takes in some very uninteresting areas including the airport car park.

Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Previous visit to Madeira was disappointing but since the cable car has been built, access to the top is much easier. Well worth getting the ship's shuttle to the cable car station and going up as early as possible before the queues start. Insufficient time alongside in Funchal.

Last port of La Coruna is not shown on this list but is not worth visiting. Better to have had longer in Madeira.
