We booked an excursion through the ship. It costed almost 150 dollar per person. I know it is supposed to be the highlight of the cruise, but I don’t know why. We couldn’t see a thing from the viewpoint because of the weather and I don’t get how anyone could spend 1,5 hours here. It was a waste of money.
We visited La Laguna when we took the cruise with AIDA. It was really easy to take the tram from Santa Cruz to La Laguna. We got out at the final stop of the line. When we walked around we noticed a lot of small bars and market places offering local dishes. Great place to spent the day. I highly recommend it to my fellow cruisers.
