Windstar cruise Lisbon to Barcelona

Windstar cruise on the Windsurf from 4/18-25. My wife and I flew into Lisbon to pick up the ship in Lisbon. We stayed at the Sheraton Lisboa. A public bus from the airport stops right in front of the Sheraton. This saved us a lot of euros. The bus ticket was good for the whole day and only cost approx. 3 euros. The cruise was supposed to depart at 5pm on sunday but ended up departing at 9pm due to local port issues. We missed the first port of call at Portimao, Portugal due to our late departure. The ship was nice with updated rooms. My wife and I are 35 and were the youngest couple on board. The next youngest were in the mid 40's. Overall, the ship is great and the staff/service is even better. The port of call in Tangier was the only downfall to the whole itinerary. Tangier sucks. We negotiated a $15 guided tour including taxi for 3 hours. Our guide spoke english just fine. The items offered by the local merchants were all the same stuff and needed to be seriously negotiated. For instance, a $80 item came all the way down to $18 after final negotiations. The only other port that I would comment on is Palma de Mallorca. We got in at 8am and left at 3:45 pm. Much too short of a time for such a beatiful city. If I had to do it over again, we would rent a car and circle the island. All other stops (malaga and Ibiza) were great. We did not sign up for any tours. We did our own walking tours of Malaga and Ibiza.
After the cruise, we hopped over to Paris for 3 days. Did all the highlights in Paris for a quick run-through. E-mail me for more specific questions on the cruise or Paris
