Day 1 Embark in Marseilles, France
Embark this afternoon for your upcoming journey.
Day 2 At Sea
Relax aboard your luxurious small ship today while cruising to Spain.
Day 3 Barcelona, Spain
A cosmopolitan city and unsurpassed centre of culture, Barcelona flaunts a rich history dating back over several centuries. The bustling Catalan capital is as lively in the daytime as it is at night and there is much to explore: the Gothic district and cathedral, the famous Picasso Museum, the Sagrada Familia, an extravagant vision by the genius architect Gaudi, and of course the famous Rambla perfumed by flowers and always very lively.
Day 4 Mahon, Menorca,Spain
Different from its sisters, Ibiza the sleepless and Majorca the elegant, Minorca, the serene one, distances itself by its natural environment which it is widely protected. If Mahon, capital of the island, shelters numerous monuments from the British colonial age, the South of the island will offer you its beautiful creeks, rocked by the sun of the Mediterranean Sea, far from any excitement.
Day 5 Palma, Mallorca, Spain
At the heart of a group of islands that are full of charm and contrasting beauty, set sail to discover the cultural centre of the Balearics and a modern metropolis with a cosmopolitan atmosphere: Palma de Mallorca, which offers itself to visitors. During a visit to the heart of its old town, guardian of the island traditions, you will get a flavour of its past by walking on its cobbles and strolling around its ancient walls. Founded by the Romans and now the capital of the Balearics, it was finally conquered by the Catalans in the 13th century.
Day 6 Valencia, Spain
Valencia - the city of Art and Sciences. Two hearts beat in this Spanish city: one is modern, avant-garde and almost futuristic; the other is more provincial, more traditional and nostalgic. The third largest town in Spain, Valencia has the temperament of a great Mediterranean city whose wide avenues form a border around the old town. The city has an abundance of architectural styles that coexist harmoniously, but above all it resolutely embraces the 21st century with the futuristic structures of its Agora congress centre and City of Arts and Sciences, emerging from a crystal blue pool.
Day 7 At Sea
Another day to enjoy the numerous on board amenities.
Day 8 Malaga, Spain
Facing Morocco and at the foot of the highlands of Grenada and Guadalquivir, Malaga, the Andalucian, dominated by the Gibralfaro castle boasts some remarkable buildings, including the cathedral and the city walls.
Day 9 Cadiz, Spain
Founded 3,000 years ago by the Phoenicians, Cadiz is the oldest city in the West. Located on a peninsula which recalls the conquest of the Americas, the town has preserved an exceptional and truly historic heritage. Cadiz is the gateway to Jerez, famous for its vines and horses, and is also the capital of flamenco. The 17th century El Salvador Cathedral in Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles, and Santa María de la Defensión are fine examples of Andalusia architecture. The bodegas (caves) of the great wine producers are genuine masterpieces of industrial architecture.
Day 10 Tagier, Morocco
At the crossroads of civilizations, between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean, Tanger is the gateway to the great African continent. It has a very special attraction for the traveller wishing to walk in the footsteps of Eugene Delacroix, Henri Matisse, Jean Genet and Tennessee Williams, all of whom lived there and found inspiration there – the light in Tangier is reputed to be in a class of its own. Separated from the Spanish coast by the Strait of Gibraltar, this former artistic capital has been conquered, retaken and liberated, and has successfully blended these varying influences to enhance its own cultural potential.
Day 11 Casablanca, Morocco
Casablanca (Morroco) blends the old and the new to perfection. A small but delightful medina tucked behind the walls is just waiting to be discovered. With its network of alleyways, great mosque and white-washed houses, Casablanca is a traditional Muslim town.
Day 12 Disembark in Casablanca
Disembark for your continued journey home.
