Now to bore every one to death with our holiday photos !! Cruising from Southampton on the Independence of the Seas for 10 days to Funchal, Madeira, then The Canary Islands, stopping at Santa Cruz, Tenerife, Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Arrecife, Lamzarote and then to Vigo in Spain and back to Southampton.
The dining room staff entertained us with songs most nights.

The ship has its own shopping mall and lifts take you to 14 floors and there is a beautiful theatre
Vigo Harbour Spain.This port is said to be so big that it all the navy ships of the world could fit inside it.
Vigo is part of the Galicia region of Spain and has historic links with the Celtic people of Ireland.
Many Cities have these wonderful types of large sculpures and this one is a treat.
