For the first time in our lives we decided to do a cruise! Ok, it was a mini cruise, but it was on a huge ship, "The Independence of The Seas", wow!
An amazing ship with absolutely everything you could want on board. The only draw back was all purchases were in US dollars, so being English we had to convert everything back, but despite that we had a terrific four days on board. However, I think to get a true feel for a cruise, you really need to take a longer trip.
We sailed into Cobh( pronounced Cove)Harbour, a pretty harbour where multi coloured houses line the waterfront. It's definitely worth a look round.
Unfortunately, we felt that Cork itself needed a huge lift, as for the most part it looked like a city in decay!
Tips: Don't forget your camera.
