What people are saying about Cantabria

Very good family experience and also for photography lovers very attentive and friendly crew. The elderly and children are in very good hands attentive crew.

Definitely worth it, we took the first cruise and it was very beautiful, take into account the explanation is in Spanish but that wasn’t a problem for me

Even if in Spanish understandable for Italians. Show all the most important points of the city by telling its history. Recommended
