Day 1: Lisbon, Portugal | Embark

Lisbon, Portugal's vibrant capital, brims with history and life. Explore landmarks like the Jeronimos Monastery, resting place of Vasco de Gama, and the ancient São Jorge Castle. While Lisbon boasts Baroque and Neoclassical architecture, its lively culture thrives in restaurants, shops, and rooftop bars. To truly experience Lisbon, hop on a tuk-tuk and explore its hidden passages like a local.

Day 2: Leixoes, Portugal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Nestled beside the Douro River in northern Portugal lies Porto, the country's second-largest city, famous for its port wine and the historic Ferreira Caves. Explorers will find a wealth of treasures in this city. Departing from the port of Leixões, your journey will lead you to the iconic Dom Luis I bridge, which connects to Ribeira, Porto's ancient district. You can explore some of Porto's remarkable landmarks, such as the historic Livraria Lello, which is a haven of literary and architectural wonders that captivates bibliophiles with its timeless allure.

Day 3: La Coruña, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
A province of Galicia, La Coruña (also known as A Coruña) holds a great deal of history that attracts the intellectual traveler. Home to the Spanish Armada and the second-biggest port town in the country, it’s a city that invites explorer spirits to rediscover all its lost secrets and hidden gems.

About an hour away lies Santiago de Compostela, a beautiful cathedral to which many make a pilgrimage spanning 500 miles across the top of Spain. If you seek the beauty of nature within the splendor of historic architecture, La Coruña offers the Garden of San Carlos and the Gardens of Mendez Nuñez with verdant patches of bushes and palm trees sprinkled throughout paved paths amid cultural landmark

Day 4: Bilbao, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
On the northern edge of the Iberian Peninsula lies Bilbao, a city with historical ties to Basque country. Its best-known museum, The Guggenheim, stands as a shining example of some of the most innovative 20th-century designs by renowned architect Frank Gehry. Strolling through the central neighborhood, Indautxu, you’ll come across the picturesque Doña Casilda Iturrizar Park. This English-style garden, with its enchanting pond, verdant trees, and decorative fountains adds a touch of refinement and romance. From the Arenal Gardens, the gateway to Casco Viejo (the Old Quarter), to Miguel de Unamuno Square, where a statue of the famed writer stands sentinel, Bilbao’s everyday life holds an extraordinary magic.
 

Day 5: Port Medoc (Bordeaux), France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Port Medoc is where red wine is king. Bordered to the east by the Gironde estuary and to the west by the vast pine forest that separates it from the Atlantic Ocean, the soil of Port Médoc is where France’s most coveted grapes are grown. As the gateway to the Bordeaux Wine Route, you can reach the town of Blanquefort to Saint-Vivien-de-Médoc, near the Pointe de Grave, and indulge in samplings of renowned wines along the way. There is also quite a bit of French history to be appreciated here as you witness three of the 12 Fortifications of Vauban.

Day 6: Le Palais, Belle Isle, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
About a 5.5-hour trip from Paris, Belle-Île has long been the secret summer getaway for Parisians and it’s easy to see why. Its jagged coastline rises out of the Bay of Biscay and has everything experienced travelers could want on an island, from beautiful beaches to a placid pastoral interior. The first landmark you may spot on your entrance to Le Palais, the capital of Belle-Île, is the imposing 17th-century Citadel Vauban. Sunworshippers and beachcombers can find a spot on the sand at Plage des Grands Sables, while surfers may prefer to catch waves at Plage du Donnant on the west side of the island.

Day 7: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore

Day 8: Honfleur | Paris | Normandy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Located along the southern bank of the Seine River, the charming port city of Honfleur is characterized by its picturesque houses with slate-covered facades, a captivating aesthetic that has been many the subject and inspiration for painters throughout history. While France is world-renowned for its cuisine, Normandy stands out as a foodie destination. Local Camembert, Livarot, and Neufchatel cheeses are delicious enough to entice travelers to stay, but a trip to Normandy is not complete without sampling the tripes à la mode de Caen, a French stew combining tripe with ox feet, vegetables, herbs and spices, cider and apple brandy. From Honfleur, you could choose to make a trek to the City of Lights, Paris, the fashion capital of the world. Iconic tourist attractions like the Louvre, Versailles and the Eiffel Tower make it easy to see how the city has enjoyed such lasting power in the minds of wanderers and locals alike, but its smaller neighborhoods like Montmartre and Le Marais are where everyday life truly shines.
 

Day 9: London | Tower Bridge

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
London is a fascinating city with storied landmarks, iconic attractions, and countless hidden gems. As we navigate the famous River Thames, we pass renowned sights like Greenwich, the Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory, and historic locales that have made cinematic history. Our small yacht allows us to dock near Tower Bridge, sailing under its impressive span, and come closer to the HMS Belfast, a historic ship known worldwide with a story that sparks your curiosity. Photographers often want to head toward central London near the Westminster Bridge. With Big Ben and Westminster Palace on one side and the London Eye on the other side of the river, it’s the best spot for the ultimate picture of the English capital. Among the lesser-known highlights of London is the British Library, where you may see a scribbled page of Beatles songwriting or a Leonardo da Vinci notebook. There are some stunning illuminated scripts and landmark scientific items too. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, head to Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens.

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.
