Bay of Biscay Coast Cruise Holiday Pictures

This cruise started and fininshed in Southampton, first port of call was La Coruna, followed by Bilbao then Bordeaux and finally Gurnsey. Some of the tours could have been organised a little better. But overall the cruise was very enjoyable. The cruiseline staff were all very friendly. The food was very good, although we thought there could have been more vegetables.
