Well it had to happen one day ! After lots of winter crossing on this route all having been very smooth , it was bound to happen ! 5 hrs into the crossing it is shall we say Choopey ! Announced that due to bad weather passengers not allowed out on decks Ahhhhh glad took sea sickness pills . But keep telling each other it will be worth it to have some sunshine :). Any Funsters around the Cartagena area :)

We were on the same crossing and yes, the sea was more than a bit hilly.
Stayed in our cabin all the time and slept most of it. Thank the stars for Stugeron.
Currently at the aire in Palencia, had a walk into town and great tapas and a couple of drinks.
Bloody freezing here now (-2)

Saw a few plates flying across the café floor last year and yes it was rough for a few hours but it's expected on that crossing. We'll see what happens this year, all booked up and ready for the off.

as you say its to be expected at this time of year Rolandrat , but would rather a few hrs bumpy ride than the drive through France ! went back through France last year and for the very little we saved and the time it took it was not worth it to us . but as they say each to there own

Even if the costs added up Woman would still not take the long ferry.. She REALLY does not like water and she has refused point blank to use anything bar the shortest route possible on the wet stuff !

We had 2 plugs in cabin.
Have a look above the vanity unit, on top of the hangers, there's another plug there.
We took instant porridge for breakfast and had a great lunch on board, prices really reasonable.
2 old dears had heated pot noodle in the microwave provided.
Kettle, iPad for films.
T bags or coffee, milk, cups.
The pillows are hard so next time I take my own, didn't get much sleep as pillow too hard.

Like food and bars in this country, there are good and bad. The trick is knowing how to recognise which is which.

Have Tapas'd all over Spain in the last 20 years, from small village bars to City centre bars in Malaga, Seville, Ronda,Jerez, Madrid,Barcelona,Almeria, Benidorm,Cordoba and many others. Never had the trots, don't be afraid of the countertop stuff it is refrigerated to just above zero, get in there and try it even if you don't know what it is.:)

And overpriced !! that depends where you go, in many areas free cooked tapas is still on offer.
