Day 1 Las Palmas, Canary Islands

Arrive in the sun-washed Canary Islands and embark this evening in Las Palmas.

Day 2 At Sea

Relax aboard your luxurious vessel while cruising to Morocco.

Day 3 Essaouira, Morocco

Enjoy a magnificent view of the fishing port of the island of Mogador, the top of the Skala in Essaouira. Visit the palace silted "DAR Saltan."

Day 4 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 5 Tangier, Morocco

At the crossroads of civilisations, 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 6 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 7 At Sea

Another day to enjoy the numerous amenities on board your small ship.

Day 8 Ibiza, Spain

Ibiza has been an attractive place since the time of the Carthaginians – and it still inspires great emotion when its white silhouette looms into sight from the sea. Despite its reputation and the eccentricity of some of its tourists, the island proves to have much more to offer to those who really want to explore it. It remains a wonderful natural site with its isolated bays lying between dunes and salt flats. Far from all the effervescence and the madding crowds, peaceful and well-preserved areas, idyllic beaches and famous places full of history make Ibiza a real jewel.

Day 9 Collioures, France

The pearl of the north-Catalan coast, Collioures is certainly one of the most beautiful villages in France, honored by many painters.

Day 10 Marseille, France

Disembark this morning for your continued journey home.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
