I loved Lisbon, The light train stops right across from the pier and will take you to the center of town. A tip you can get a transportation pass for the day at the post office. We spent an hour trying to figure out where to buy one.

One word of caution the pick pockets were worse in Lisbon then Barcelona or Rome. Secure everything. I was lucky and got my wallet back when my son grabbed the pckpocket on the trolley. When we got back to the ship there were at least a dozen passengers waiting to have their identity confirmed by the ship to get through security with no remaining ID.

Vigo we did a ships tour - wine tasting - some great views - some of the worst wine I ever tasted.
