This was a place I really liked the look of and only wished I had more time to look around, we never got much quality time off the ship for this place which was a big shame, Ill just have to go back for a couple of nights one day.















Take a look at the shops, its little UK in the sun, to the right is British Home Stores

















OOOOOPS we are at it again beer drinker









Look at this guy he appears to be floating in air, a really good trick.



Back on board gutted was enjoying myself. We were wondering where this plane was going it looked a bit low.




On closer inspection you can see the run way just above these buildings to the right, its actually in the sea.





















The views all round the harbour are amazing





Gibraltar is a great place to visit although it doesn't look huge I think it would be a great place for a couple of days, now don't forget its uk sterling and not euros, this is the mistake we made lol, we forgot it was British owned.

Not sure if its really for me TBH, I enjoyed the restaurant and getting dressed up and some of the shows, also liked visiting new places but not enough time to explore these places TBH.

I think if the ship had a cinema and put films on through the day when at sea and also if the shows had lasted longer it would have been much better.

I was bored stiff when we were at sea, you can only walk around a deck so many times and look at the sea lol. I like a base, so I can get up have something to eat then think about where I want to go, I dont like keeping to times on holiday. Im not one for lazing around a pool sunbathing I get bored with that as well lol, an hour is enough for me then Im off, see you later pet hahahaha.

So when we were at sea I went in my room and watched whatever was on tv. Also didnt like paying nearly £5 a pint thats such a rip off.

I don't really think it would be for me either . . don't like the idea of not being able to escape from the other passengers . .

Plus all those queues to get off . . . and to get back on . .

When the big cruise ships come into Cobh, the buses arrive and 'herd' the passengers off to all the really touristy, rip off diddely didely destinations . . where they are turned upside down and shaken until they have emptied their pockets . . then they are 'herded' back on to the ship and it's off to the next port.

Now . . a Greek island cruise . . I might consider . . with my seabands of course . . Cool

Oh, we did most of the cruising at night whilst asleep and we would arrive about 6 in the morning but I agree one gets very little time to see these places and if you are not on their expensive tours, you always have that worry of not straying too far, for fear of missing the boat

Visited Gibraltar about 3 or 4 times when I lived on the CdS, it was about an hour & a half or so away. Went up the Rock to where the apes are, by cable car, should have come down by it, roll eyes but I said to Brett & Kelly, "lets walk down". It took ages as I got us lost quite a few times on the way down. Embarassed Embarassed Had to walk across the runway to get to Gibraltar town/city, after a plane had landed, as obviously they have the right of way. clever Rep again for some fabulous photo's & memories mate. clap clap

I worked in Gib for 5 years and lived in Spain, St Michael's cave is well worth a visit especially when there's a concert

You can see Gib in 2 days but the nearby Spanish mountain towns and villages are stunning plus Morrocco is only 10 miles away
