Iberian cruise

17 June 2016

We had a wonderful holiday on board the P&O cruise ship Oriana, visiting Spain, Portugal and Morocco. We enjoyed two weeks of consistently glorious sunshine and remarkably calm seas. It was great fun exploring some beautiful cities, including Lisbon, Cadiz, Malaga and Porto. Visiting Tangier in Morocco was a fascinating, if slightly intimidating, experience. We wandered through the crowded, narrow alleyways of the Medina with its myriad of shops and stalls selling leather goods and spices, getting lost several times as we tried to retrace our steps from the Kasbah at the top of the hill back to the harbour. Another highlight was our first visit to the Frank Gehry's amazing Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao – an incredible building that has helped to transform an ailing industrial city into a major tourist destination.
