Cruising ahead


September saw the start of cruise season at Arrecife, with more than 15,000 tourists arriving at the capital in just one week towards the end of the month.
Arrecife remains a popular stop for cruisers, and immense ships such as the Aida and Mein Schiff liners are already familar sights in Arrecife. The mooring point at the new marina for smaller cruisers has meant that many tourists enjoy a much more direct access to Arrecife.
Among the scores of ships expected between now and early June next year are famous British vessels such as Britannia and the Queen Elizabeth.
