"A good team"

I was very satisfied with the boat and with the crew. However, it's a pity that we have to queue in the same line than people buying the tickets on the same ticket. Purchasing the ticket on your website is very quick, but it takes 2h30 to have get the physical ticket. I won't even mention the fatigue, the heat and the cries. Everyone is pushing and you worry about the children who are alone in the car while you get your boarding passes. Please open a ticket office for the people who have already booked their tickets. Thanks.

Almeria is the capital of the province of Almería in southeastern Spain. The name "Almería" stems from al-Meraya (Arabic, "the watchtower"), because of its magnificent Moorish castle, Alcazaba: among the Muslim fortresses of Andalusia, only Alhambra is larger. The city was founded by Abd ar-Rahman III of Cordoba in 955 as a principal harbor in his extensive domain, to strengthen his Mediterranean defenses against the Fatimid caliphate in Tunisia. In this period, the port city of Almería reached its historical peak, continuing, after the fragmentation of the Caliphate of Cordoba, under powerful local muslim taifa emirs like Jairan, the first independent Emir of Almería and Cartagena and Almotacin the poet emir, both fearless warriors but also patrons of the arts. A silk industry, based upon plantings of mulberry trees in the hot dry landscape supported Almería in the 11th century and made its strategic harbour an even more valuable prize.
Melilla is a Spanish exclave in North Africa, located on the northern tip of Maghreb, on the Mediterranean coast. Traditionally considered part of Andalusia for historical reasons, it was administered as part of Malaga province prior to the March 14, 1995 Statute of Autonomy, and was a free port before Spain joined the European Union. It was a Phoenician and later Punic establishment under the name of Rusadir. Later it became a part of the Roman province of Hispania Nova Ulterior Tingitana in Hispania. As centuries passed, it went through Vandal, Byzantine and Hispano-Visigothic hands. Melilla was on the frontier of the Kingdom of Tlemcen and the Kingdom of Fes when the Juan Alfonso Perez de Guzman El Bueno 3rd Duke of Medina Sidonia reconquered it in 1497, a few years after Castille had taken control of the last Nasrid kingdom of Granada. General Francisco Franco used the city as one of his staging grounds for his rebellion in 1936, and a statue of him is still prominently featured.
