Day 1 Seville

Board the MS La Belle de Cadix at 5:00 PM and settle into your cabin. Attend a welcome cocktail party to introduce yourself to the ships and her crew before enjoying dinner. The ship will stay in port overnight.

Day 2 Seville / Cadiz

After breakfast, set off on a guided walking tour of Seville. Art and enchantment have left their mark on this radiant city, and it consistently delights travelers. Return to the ship for lunch and begin your cruise on the Guadalquivir River. Discover the unspoiled nature of the area, where cotton fields and rice patties rub shoulders with extraordinary wildlife. Sail past the Donana Park, recognized by UNESCO as a “Natural Biosphere Reserve,” and Sanlucar de Barrameda before arriving in Cadiz in the evening. Join your host/hostess on a tour of Cádiz by night.

Day 3 Cadiz / El Puerto de Danta Maria

Devote the morning to a guided walking tour of Cádiz, which is surprising in its cultural and historic richness. The city is famed for the beauty of its landscapes. Return to the ship for lunch and enjoy your meal as you cruise for El Puerto de Santa Maria. In the afternoon, set off for an excursion to Jerez, the capital of wine, horses, and flamenco music.

Day 4 El Puerto de Santa Maria / Seville

Begin your day with breakfast on board before leaving the ship to visit a renowned wine cellar. Attend a wine-tasting before attending an entirely different local tradition: an equestrian show. Return to the ship for lunch and depart for Seville. Enjoy dinner on board as you cruise.

Day 5 Seville / Granada / Seville

After breakfast on board, set off by coach on a guided excursion to Granada. Ringed by the imposing mountainous barrier of the Sierra Nevada, Granada is built on three hills: the Albaicin, the Sacromonte, and the Alhambra. Discover the Alhambra, a palace straight out of the thousand and one nights and the Generalife, the kings' summer residence, before stopping for lunch at a local restaurant in Granada. In the afternoon, explore Granada at your own pace before returning to Seville by coach.

Day 6 Seville

In the morning, set off by coach for the excursion to a nature reserve, for a private tour with a forest guide. This excursion provides total immersion into an entirely unspoiled natural area, which has managed to preserve its very specific character. Then, travel to a bird-watching site for the chance to discover an amazing variety of bird species: waders, gulls, ducks, etc. (This visit is not available in July and August. Instead, you visit Carmona and an oil mill where you will sample the product). Return to the ship for lunch, followed by a free afternoon to explore Seville.

Day 7 Seville / Cordoba

Begin your day with breakfast on board before devoting the day to a guided tour of Cordoba. Leave by coach for Cordoba, the city of Caliphs. During your visit, discover the mosque-cathedral, a veritable forest of 856 columns adorned with jasper, granite, and marble and the Juderia, the former Jewish quarter. Enjoy a classic lunch of “tapas” specialties in a local restaurant. Enjoy some free time in the afternoon to explore the city before returning to the ship in the evening.

Day 8 Seville / Disembark

Enjoy one last breakfast on board before disembarking at 9.00 AM.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
