Loved the layout and decor of Adonia. The service in restaurants was excellent, cabin steward was also very good. Food was ok, not great, I got the impression that they were trying to use up overstocks from the freezers. Visited the grill as usual and ordered the grilled lobster, when it came it was the much smaller lobster thermador usually dished up in main diningroom on formal nights. Menu's stated 'home made shortbread' when it was a packet sponge finger etc. Entertainment was mixed, went to see the theater group and had to leave after a few minutes screaming rather than singing. Pianist was ok as long as he didn't try to sing.Guest artists however were all very good. Embarkation and disembarkation were fast and smooth, but with only just over 600 passengers it would have been difficult to have problems.

Lisbon, we have usually headed out of Lisbon on various tours, we decided to explore the city itself hoping it had improved in the 22 years since our first visit.It had we had a great tour on a tuk-tuk, we chose a small shabby piaggio as it had lots of character. They have to charge 45 euros but our hour tour was nearer 2 hours we went up and down so many hills all great fun with our driver/guide (Peter from Bristol).

Fuerteventura, we caught the bus to Corralejo, lots of shops and bars, but we saw some lovely beaches, nice views to the other islands and ate the best paella we had ever eaten in a restaurant on the harbour.
