Adventure on the Seas!

Great, for the Spanish...

I had a good week on the Adventure of the Seas, and it was my first cruise. It was an enjoyable novelty but lacked a lot of aspects I've been led to expect from friends who went on other cruises. The staff were ...

Sailing the Seas

We left from Malaga on our 7 day cruise, the embarkation process was a bit hectic, but it flowed nonetheless. There is no parking at the port so it is necessary to park off site if you drove in, which we did. Use ...
