  1. There is a lot to see in Malaga. Have a look on Tripadvisor and WhatsinPort or information.
  2. The centre of Santa Cruz is OK, but IMHO not the most interesting of towns
  3. The old town of Bilbao is very nice with lots of Art Deco architecture. The Museum of Fine Arts is worth a visit. Lots of great tapas bars.
  4. Yes, CICAR are on all the islands. They have been around quite a long time and have excellent reputation.
  5. I have gone to stay with Spanish friends in Seville every year for the last 40 years and haven’t seen everything, so I’d stay in Cadiz and go to Seville another time to give it the extra time it deserves. there is plenty to see in Cadiz for a day. There is a tourist information office just outside the port gate where you can pick up lots of information. Alternatively, you could visit Jerez and one of the sherry bodegas or the equestrian show.
  6. I’d hire a car with CICAR who have an office in the cruise terminal. You could visit Teide, Masca, Garachico, Tacaronte, Icod de los Vinos, La Orotava, La Laguna, Puerto de la Cruz etc
  7. Most major European cities have some kind of demonstration on May Day, but they tend to be in one area. Montserrat s definitely worth a visit anyway.
  8. As we live in London we go abroad a lot and I often comment to my OH I don’t know how elderly/disabled people manage in many places. Even here in the UK where we have plenty of aid and facilities, some places are still challenging.
  9. We’ve been to SPB twice and both times booked the Comfort Tour with Alla Tours, which was excellent. I had a manual wheelchair with me and didn’t eel hurried at all.
  10. There are likely to be demonstrations.
  11. I always do plenty research on anywhere we go, so as I have limited mobility I have always ruled out Santorini, but thanks for the info.
  12. I would never use a company like Viatour as they don’t operate any tours. Much better to book direct with alocal operator.
  13. I have taken a manual wheelchair on two Norway cruises. In Alesund we took the HOHO bus from the port. In Stavanger we took a boat rip to Pulpit Rock. It departed about 50m from where the ship docked and they gave us ‘carer goes free’ - rodne.com The other day I was looking at the Port Authority website for the Lofoten Islands and they had a link to a leaflet which advertised accessible tours. You could also ask the tourist board VisitNorway.no Also look at the Northern European forums, WhatsinPort and Tripadvisor. If you use Facebook there are two good pages you may wish to join Disabled Cruisers and Accessible Cruising.
  14. Xwhenever I have contacted P+O regarding arrival and departure times they have given them to me. They are normally also available on the Port Authority website.
  15. Why don’t you ask P+O, they can give you exact times.
