I advise any disabled person with a wheelchairagainst boarding the same that I did. It is not fit for disabled people and when I complained about my installation on board, I was told that I could see the doctor on board. However, I could understand a single word of what he was saying and he offered me to stay in the corridor with my kids. During the inbound crossing, there was a 5 hours delay, accessing the toilets was difficult, there was an odor of meat coming from the barbecue, people were laying down on the floor. Both the outbound and the inbound journey were hell.

The city of Almeria is located in the Andalusia region of Spain. The city lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south east of Spain and is also the capital of the Almeria province. The city is popular with tourists and there are many things to see and do. The Alcazaba is a medieval fortress that was originally built in the 10th century, although it was subsequently destroyed by an earthquake in the 16th century. The fortress has large gardens, a well preserved keep and a triple line of walls. The city also has a Cathedral which resembles a fortress due to its towers, merlons and protected paths which were created to protect it from Mediterranean pirates. The cathedral was converted from a mosque to a Christian church before also being destroyed by an earthquake in 1522. The cathedral was subsequently rebuilt in the Renaissance style whilst retaining some of its defensive features.
The city's port provides passengers with ferry connections to Melilla, Algeria and Morocco. Mediterranean cruises also depart from the port. The port also has a marina which is popular with pleasure boats. The port is currently undergoing a period of expansion with new docks intended to increase the port's freight traffic.
Oran is a city that lies on the north western Mediterranean Sea coast of Algeria and is Algeria's second largest city and is closely associated with the neighbouring city of Ain Temouchent. Oran is located around 430 km from Algiers, Algeria's capital city, and is a major port and commercial, industrial and centre for education in the region. The city can trace its history back to 903 when it was founded Moorish Andalusian traders and was later captured in 1509 by the Spanish under the rule of Cardinal Cisneros. Apart from a brief spell under the control of the Ottomans, the city remained under Spanish rule until King Charles IV finally sold the city to the Turks in 1792. Finally, the French have ruled the city since 1831.
Popular attractions in the city include the Demaeght Museum which contains exhibits of prehistoric archaeological artefacts from Magrheb and other ethnological displays. Also in the city is Dar el-Bahia, the town hall, the city's theatre and the beautifully designed Cathedral de Sacre Coeur which was opened by the French in 1913 and is now a public library.
