Valencia (9)

El Corté Ingles Valencia - awning with logo

Having exhausted our time--and ourselves--in Valencia, we stopped at El Corté Ingles to use the facilities on our way to the meeting point for the Costa shuttle bus. (In a city where public lavatories can be hard to find, El Corté Ingles is useful for more than shopping.)

The Costa shuttle bus departed from the Hotel Reina Victoria, around the corner from the Plaça Porta de la Mar.


Gangway on COSTA MAGICA

In about 20 minutes, we were back at the Valencia cruise terminal and boarding Costa Magica.


Costa Mediterranea

Before leaving port, we snapped this photo of Costa Mediterranea, which had been shadowing our ship for much of the cruise.


Cruise ship AURORA in Valencia

The P&O cruise ship Aurora preceded us out of the harbor.


Costa Mediterranea bow

As Costa Magica pulled away from the pier, we got another view of Costa Mediterranea from our cabin's balcony.

In the background, you can see cranes and cargo-handling systems. Valencia's cruise terminal is in an industrial harbor, with containerships and freight terminals on both sides of the cruise basin.


Valencia pilot boat

As soon as Costa Magica passed the breakwater, the pilot left the ship and we were in the open sea, headed for Marseille.
