Well we got back from our Canaries Cruise on the 12th (Tuesday) and we had a fabulous time...I took well over 600 photos so here are a few of them and you can see the rest here: Canaries Cruise 2013 I am going to let you know what we did (the brief version and I think the photos tell the rest!!!)...

We were staying in a suite (so we had a little bit more room) and this meant that we had a butler, concierge and we were shown to our room when we first arrived :0) we also had our own designated area in the theatre and got delivered treats every afternoon...wow!!! We were not expecting any of this kind of treatment but it did make our cruise that little bit more special...
|An example of the treats we had delivered to our cabin!|

|Our beautiful ship ~ the Norwegian Spirit...|
|Little Boats in Arrecife...|
Our second port of call was Tenerife...we went whale watching!!! This was a whole day tour (or seemed like it) so we didn't see much of the island...I did get some good pictures from the ship though!

Here's a couple of the best photos I got of the whales we saw...

Our third port of call was Madeira ~ this was my favourite island and I took a LOT of photos!!!
In Madeira we went on a tour bus right round the city/town. We went up really high amongst the hills and once or twice we thought the bus wasn't going to make it up the hills they were that steep!!! I'd visit Madeira again on holiday I think, I thought it was a lovely place...
Then we had a sea day before arriving in Malaga, Spain. It was raining when we arrived!!! Mum and I got off for a wander when there was a break in the weather and wandered a short way into the town. It was a Sunday so there wasn't much open...
Then we had a beautiful sunny sea day on the way back to Barcelona :0) it was a pity that we didn't have enough time in Barcelona before our flight so we could explore but never mind. I've been to Barcelona once before so I would like to re-visit there one day!
So as well as the beautiful sunshine we had a great cruise on board the Norwegian Spirit (apart from the bumpy ride out to Lanzarote)!!! I would highly recommend them as a cruise line to anyone...the crew are fantastic and friendly, the shows are magical and the food is divine!!!

Well that's a little bit about my holiday...we did so much aboard the ship that I couldn't possibly sit here and tell you all about it! It'd take hours...so go have a look at my pictures (link up towards the top of this post!) :0) I can't wait for my next cruise...Mum & Dad were talking about a possible cruise down the Panama Canal next year for Dad's 65th and it'll be my 30th next year too...cruising is so much fun and you really get treated well :0) it's the perfect way to see a few places all in one holiday! Gives you a bit of an insight into places that you could visit for a bit longer another time if you liked...
I hope that you've enjoyed reading about my holiday...thanks to you if you did!!!
