Repositioning Cruise on the Andrea from Cadiz to Buenos Aires. November 2008
Tarifa to Cadiz
Having arrived in Tarifa yesterday after a 7 day tour of Morocco, we travelled by bus to Cadiz. This took an hour and 15 minutes and cost EU8.39 per person. An interesting trip along the coast past many windfarms and solar panel which would indicate that southern Spain is addressing the energy problem.
On arrival in Cadiz, a quick taxi ride to our …
A very pleasant day spent wandering the streets of Cadiz. A very old city originally settled by the Phoenicians in approximately 1100BC. It has been occupied by the Cathaginians , Romans , Moors and the Reconquest.A walk along the seafront gives a wonderful perspective of the very pretty city.
Departure from Cadiz
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 …
As the Andrea is a small ship, she does tend to roll a little which explains why the chairs are all bolted down and the drawers and cupboards have special locks to prevent them banging during the night. A situation it took me a little while to figure out . The morning spent exploring the ship and getting the feel of the ocean. With so few …
Arrival in Las Palmas
No motion sickness but a rather sleepless night due to the swell. She really rolls and it's a little disconcerting to be rolling from one side of the bed to the other most of the night. What a pity I didn't realise that the bed had a "seat belt" with which one can strap oneself in. This was discovered on the last day at sea.
Las Palmas de Gran Canarias
After breakfast, a morning tour of Las Palmas , supplied by the cruise. A drive up to the crater of the extinct volcano Bandama before travelling on to the very pretty colonial town of Teror for and inspection of the church of Our Lady of The Pines. A stop at the delightful La Hacienda del Buen Suceso for morning tea. Back on board by 1.30 for …
Weather much improved and the swell has now abated. Those passengers who had no luggage due to missed connections , had it delivered yesterday in Las Palmas and are now looking much happier.
Kevin's lecture on seabirds this morning was quite fascinating but I am still not sure if I could tell one booby from another.
One has to be careful about …
Thanksgiving at Sea
This morning during Kevin's lecture he announced that the ship would not be stopping at Cape Verde. This caused a great to do with some of the passengers and one even saying that the only reason they took this voyage was to stop at Cape Verde. I found this a little odd but really wasn't too concerned as he said that we would be sailing through the …
Cape Verde Islands
Up early to see Cape Verde Islands only to be told by Kevin that we were actually in the middle of the islands as they cover a vast stretch of ocean. We sailed past Praia and I think we were all rather grateful that we didn't stop as it looked rather bleak and dreary. Instead we sailed past Sotavento and Santiago and then around Fogo which is a …
