Great little place to grab a quick meal or a coffee before you board your cruise ship. Some lovely little shops and even a small supermarket for those last minute purchases.

Broad range of dining options, cinema, shopping from supermarket to shoes to gifts to clothing. Be good to see all shops open by 9 am on a cruise day.

This place is a fancy place where fine dinning and midrange options are available. You can either drive or catch a ferry to get this place.
