Navigator of the Seas Cruise Review by Paddy41
- Sail Date: October 2010
- Destination: Transatlantic
Our first port was Toulon, France. It was a Sunday so many things were closed but we took a tour on the little train and it had an informative English commentary and was an inexpensive way to see some of Toulon.
Second port was Barcelona, described separately.
Third port was Cartagena, described separately.
Fourth port was Malaga where we went on RCI's Caves of Nerja tour. Excellent. You will get wonderful pictures. Only problem here was that the tour left the ship very early and when we got to the town of Nerja the shops were not yet open.
Last port was Tenerife, described separately.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
BarcelonaWe booked the Tapa Tasting excursion through RCI and it was excellent. We saw the Familia Church first and then went to 3 tapa restaurants and had wonderful tapas and red or white Spanish wine which was really great. I really recommend this excursion.View All 2,209 Barcelona Cruise Port Reviews

Cartagena (Colombia)We did our own thing after reading on Cruise Critic how someone else recommended walking. At dock walk straight ahead to first road and turn right. Turn left at next street and walk until you see a metal elevator. Take the elevator up to the top to tour the castle. It was only around 4 euros per person (we said we were walking back down) and well worth it. Great view of the ancient amphitheatre they have found and the castle was great to tour. Try to walk down the back way and you'll arrive in the shopping area. Here we ordered some tapas on our own. Everything was very inexpensive. Walk back down to the street that leads to the dock and before you reach the dock you will find a sign for the tourist bus. This is a 2 decker open-air bus and for 4.5 euros each they gave us a cassette which we plugged in and listened to the commentary as the bus drove us around Barcelona. Everything is very clean and well laid out.View All 719 Cartagena (Colombia) Cruise Port Reviews

TenerifeVery different landscape from the rest of our ports. Did you know that Tenerife has the highest mountain in Spain. The Canary Islands belong to Spain. Volcanic landscape. We toured the island and saw the landscape change around almost every bend. Sometimes pines, most often just rock but different types of rock. The film the Ten Commandments was filmed here. We went up to a high enough elevation that we could look down on the clouds formed by the trade winds that were covering the small villages along the coast. They have great highways here and even though a lot of the road was narrow and windy I didn't feel unsafe at all even when I could sometimes look straight down a cliff.View All 468 Tenerife Cruise Port Reviews
