Private Independent Travel

Sail two rivers of Spain and Portugal on this fascinating 8-day river cruise. This voyage travels on the Guadalquivir and Guadiana Rivers and introduces you to Seville, Cadiz, and the legendary Rock of Gibraltar.

Day 1

    Seville

    Board the MS La Belle de Cadix starting at 5 PM. Settle into your cabin and attend a welcome cocktail hour to introduce yourself to the ship and her crew. Dine on board before going ashore to enjoy a free evening in Seville, if you wish. The ship remains in port overnight.

    Day 2

      Seville / Cadiz

      Enjoy breakfast on board before participating in an optional guided tour of Seville. Set off to explore the cathedral, the Alcazar palace (which is closed on Mondays) and its Andalusian gardens, the Maria Luisa Park, and the captivating Santa Cruz district. Return to the ship around 1 PM. Sail for Cadiz as you eat lunch and pass Donana Park and Sanlucar de Barrameda. Arrive in Cadiz in the evening and attend an optional night of flamenco entertainment in port.

      Day 3

        Cadiz / Jerez

        After breakfast, join an optional excursion to Jerez. This tour offers a panoramic view of the Alcazar and the cathedral. Continue the tour at a "ganaderia" (a property where bulls are raised), before returning to the ship for lunch. Take an optional guided tour of Cadiz and Sanlucar de Barrameda. Visit a renowned wine cellar, where the secrets of "Manzanilla" wines will be revealed.

        Day 4

          Alcoutim / Vila Real

          Relax and enjoy breakfast as you continue to cruise along the Guadiana, sailing up river to Alcoutim and arriving around 10:30 AM. Explore the town during some free time before returning to the ship for lunch. Depart for Vila Réal de St Antonio or Ayamonte, arriving around 3:00 PM. Explore Vila Réal or join an optional excursion to Faro.

          Day 5

            El Puerto De Santa Maria / Rock of Gibraltar

            Early in the morning, arrive at El Puerto de Santa Maria. Enjoy some free time to relax and explore on your own, or join an optional full-day excursion to Gibraltar. This tour travels to the Rock of Gibraltar by coach. After lunch in a local restaurant, take a guided tour of the peninsula. Several stops are scheduled during the tour, including Europapoint, an outlook where you can see the Moroccan coastline, as well as Saint Michael's Cave, famous for its stalactites. Return to the ship and attend a gala evening on board as you sail back towards Seville.

            Day 6

              Seville / Granada / Seville

              Arrive in Seville and spend the day in Granada. A coach will set off early in the morning for a guided tour of Granada. Set against the impressive Sierra Nevada mountain range, Granada is built on the slopes of three hills: the Albaicin the Sacromonte and the Alhambra. Renowned for its energy and dynamism, Grenada has a lot to see while you explore on your own before taking the coach back to Seville. Attend dinner on board, then join in an evening of entertainment provided by the crew. After dinner, explore the city at your own pace.

              Note: The day trip to Granada is an included excursion

              Day 7

                Seville / Cordoba / Seville

                After breakfast on board, spend the day on an optional guided tour of Cordoba. Leave by coach during the morning and discover the Mosque-Cathedral, a veritable forest of 856 columns adorned with jasper, granite and marble; and visit the historic Juderia, the former Jewish quarter. Return to the ship in Seville and enjoy a Spanish-themed dinner.

                Day 8

                  Seville

                  Enjoy one last breakfast on board before disembarking at 9:00 PM.
