In November 2009, we decided to take another off season cruise from our home port of Southampton, this time down to the Canary Islands and back.  It was the last cruise of the season for the Independence of the Seas before she headed across the Atlantic back to the Caribbean.  It would also be a chance for us to unwind after a manic October and November.  Once again, as we didn't have to worry about flights we treated ourselves to a Junior Suite and set sail ...

Madeira - oh dear ...

Santa Cruz, Tenerife - tell me why, I don't like Mondays.

Las Palmas, Gran Canaria - shops, shops and yet more shops.

Arrecife, Lanzarote - the island of 100 volcanoes.

Lisbon - exploration and cathedrals.

Vigo (for Santiago Conpostela) - where the rain falls.

Some Miscellaneous Stuff - catch it all.
