The ship, which weighs an impressive 92,000 tonnes and cost 365 million pounds, attracted hundreds of people in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria during yesterday's stop-over and plans to attract even more today in Tenerife, before it sets sail for La Palma at 6pm."

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
