Koningsdam

November 2016 - 11 Night Southern Caribbean Wayfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Koningsdam

porkwerks's Tips

Key West, Florida - Conch Seafood Company - forget the fritters and try the cracked conch! Willie T's for great drinks and music.
Cozumel, Mexico - Mayan ruins - we enjoyed Tulum. It's on the coast, breezy and scenic.
Nieuw Amsterdam Nieuw Amsterdam - If you like the classic dining experience where you get to know your dining staff well and enjoy their company skip the "as you wish" or open seating. We found the staff busy and harried and the service lacking. We were able to get assigned seating for the remainder of the cruise which was great.
Ponta Delgada, Azores - Green tour and eco-lovers paradise! The Azores are beautiful, friendly and a great place to visit. Ponta Delgada is a walking friendly city with no need for car or bus if you're spending the day downtown. There's plenty to see just strolling around between the parks, churches, squares and cafes. The waterfront pier is only a few years old and is filled with shopping and food from cafes and gelato bars to restaurants. We took a 4x4 trip around the western crater and the town of Sete Cidades and would love to come back and spend a week hiking, biking and swimming.
Le Havre (Paris), France - We saw none of the actual city - all the reviews we'd read online agreed and even used the same phrase that people came to Le Havre to "go somewhere else". Instead we booked an all day tour to Mont-Saint-Michel which was excellent and we would highly recommend. Either that or to the D-Day beaches though we did that tour from Cherbourg.
Vigo, Spain - We spent the day with friends who showed us around the old parts of the city, the beaches, the fort and old Celtic ruins. I think we ate our weight in fresh seafood tapas and Galician wine. Any easy to walk off the ship and stroll around though bring an umbrella - the locals tell us despite the constant sunshine the day we were there it rains a lot in Vigo.
Cherbourg, France - We had a wonderful tour to Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery which we would suggest is a must-see if not done before. The tour was an all day affair so we didn't see anything of Cherbourg so online reviews we'd read prior to leaving didn't make it sound too interesting.
