Canary islands

Ok, I have skipped a few days as I haven't had a chance to write much and even now I only have 20 minutes before we go to the second ice show of the cruise. Day 6, 7 and 8 were spent at Tennerife, Grand Canaria and Lanzerote respectively. The weather has been rather disappointing; cool, windy and cloudy with only occasional appearances from the sun. We have just been hoping that the Snow has returned in the UK! It isn't a major problem; the boys have still managed spells, albeit brief in the pool and the only island of the three we went ashore, Grand Canaria, we visited a surprisingly impressive science museum. With all the islands, you really need to book the excursions to see anything worthwhile and neither us or the boys were bothered enough to endure the hassle of arranging them! So the last few days have been comprised of climbing wall, getting pizza, football, basketball, getting pizza, getting wet, getting coke, watching shows, going ice skating, getting pizza and coke, watching the latest Harry Potter (if you haven't seen it, don't bother; too long, very dull ) and getting pizza. Have just watched another very impressive ice show and looking forward to the final theatre show later.

Just found your blog as I was searching for all things IOS. We (me/wife/daughter14/son12) are going to be on the IOS on the 15th May heading down to the Med. Looks as though your kids are enjoying the various activities on board, especially the coke! I am in two minds as whether to purchase the fizzy pop drinks package for both of them or let them share one. I have been told that there is cordial and lemonade available free? I am so looking forward to this holiday. Thanks for the blog.
