Hi All!

Hoping to find some help/suggestions for port of call land excursions. I work with a travel group of adults with intellectual disabilities- while I've planned a ton of trip and been on a bunch of cruises this is our first to Europe on the Norweigan Jade. Any advice as to where to go in the following ports would be AMAZING! We tend to stick with the cruise ship options due to safety regardless of the prices. we're sailing 1/15. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!![LIST] Casablanca
Las Palmas

I've been to Barcelona before so we're good there.

Hi Yai Lt, welcome to Cruise-Chat. Wish I could help but have not had the privilege of visiting those ports. I know we have several members that have and hopefully they can help. Sounds like a wonderful adventure and it's great to hear you are so helpful to those that need assistance. Just wanted to welcome you on board. Best Wishes!

In Funchal it is possible to do your own thing and it seems safe enough
A lot of people go on the toboggons down the hill
Not a lot else in Funchal
In Casablanca I would not recommend going it alone
We did a ships excursion which took in a market and other sights as well as the King Hassan mosque which is a remarkable building although we could not go in
I recollect that Las Palmas had little to recommend it and is a bit away from the main resorts
Perfectly safe though in my experience and it may be possible to hire a cab as an alternative to a ships tour
