Departure from Cadiz
Andrea Repositioning November 2008

A walk to the port after breakfast to find the Andrea. Overnight several very large cruise ships had arrived so she was a little hard to locate but eventually , there she was and after a quick consultation with the Hotel Manager, we were able to return to the hotel and collect our suitcases and return to the ship and leave them on board until sailing time. Lunch at a small outdoor cafe near the town hall with a brass band playing , made the perfect end to to very pleasant days in Cadiz.
Sailing time was listed as 4.00pm but we were able to board at 3.00pm to find our suitcases in our cabins. Very pleased with the cabins and their facilities and so pleased that we took two cabins as there was no "Single Supplement" on this Repositioning Cruise. Afternoon tea at 4.30 where we met the other passengers including the three who had been at the hotel in Cadiz. The Andrea has a capacity of 103 passengers but only 23 on this trip. I am so pleased that we had the extra days in Cadiz as several of the passengers had flown directly into Seville from their home ports and their luggage hadn't made the connection. This is always a worry on a cruise and I would alwayd recommend arriving at least 24 hours prior to sailing. Sailed at 6.00pm
