We are going on a P&O cruise which starts at Malta / Valletta. We fly to Malta from the UK and our flight will arrive mid morning so we could get to the cruise terminal by lunchtime.
The ship doesn't leave until mid evening so I was wondering how close the cruise terminal was to anywhere interesting (for example the main town), if anyone knows how we'd get there (transport options)? And what the procedure is on a cruise for checking in to the ship and then leaving to explore. Is this even an option on arrival day? We have an organized "tour" on the day we get back there but nothing for departure day.
