Sail Date: Oct 2013

We boarded Quest in Piraeous in October. We had booked back to back cruises and the second cruise took us across the Atlantic to Brazil, Uraguay and Argentina. We were thrilled at Piraeous that several staff remembered us from an April 2012 cruise and greeted us at check in. We visited several ports in the Mediterranean including Kusadasi, Patmos, Santorini, Malta, Syracuse, Mahon and Valencia. All were interesting in their own way but we loved Santorini, it is so scenic.

Our next port of call was Barcelona where many passengers disembarked and a new lot of passengers boarded. There was also quite a change over of crew including the captain. We set sail for South America. Our first port of call was Gibraltar which we enjoyed, especially seeing the rock and the apes. Then on to Casablanca where early in the morning we had a rude awakening to the rock and rolling of the ship as it went over the sand bar at the entrance to the port. We all survived without injury but the ship did about $200000 worth of damage particularly in the restaurants. Undeterred we set off for Marrakesh, our choice of excursion and we believed it was worth the 12 hour day. Travelling through the desert was interesting especially seeing the Atlas Mountains. After a magnificent lunch we set off for the souks, another very imteresting experience as we had guides fromt and back of us watching for pick pockets!

Back to the ship and off to the Canary Islands. We visited Lanzarotte, the volcanic island and Teneriffe also volcanic but much more fertile. Both islands were worth the visit. The next day we visited Cape Verde, we weren't sure why.

Cabin Review

Great suite quite close to Seabourn Square. Great coffee here. We ordered caviar and nibblies on several occasions from room service as well as cocktails. The beds are so comfortable.
