Their effort was great, productions were very good. We are spoiled by television and movies. However, these people were very good. Lots of magic shows.

Giving Grand Turn an excellent, though we couldn't visit, the ship had technical problems and had to stop into Freeport, Bahamas for two days. Bottom fishing trip very good. Get seat in stern. Shopping at Port Lucaya 350 shops, many hard working entrepreneurs. We bought small things.

Trip to Granada (travel portion) seemed shorter than brochure, very nice, and tremendous historical and botanic value.

Village of Soller was great. Olive oil tour was really terrific, also.
Don't Miss: Vallemossa, Soller, olive oil tour.

Weather is amazing at this port. Popular with northern europeans. Caldera, "Best of Canaria" tour was very good.

Pros: Friendliness, effort of employees

Cons: Switched housekeeping crew after tipping first one.
