IMG 0668A good lie in (possibly due to the wine last night?) and a tolerably good breakfast. Time however passes slowly on board and the ship is quite crowded. I'm not inclined to want to take a long cruise is this is what it's like.

Read a book, walk about, drink coffee, repeat. 

The ship takes a surprisingly long time to unload, quite a lot of it with us standing sweating in the hold with several hundred other people waiting to get out. Finally we gratefully emerge and get to our hotel, the nearby Grand Hotel Sardenero By 9pm

La Cania bar and cafe just around the corner does a nice tapas and a welcome drink.

No time to form any first impressions, we're struggling with the Spanish phrase book.
