Expand All

Day 1: Cannes, France | Embark

Glittering Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their drafty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes’ high-flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since. Every year, the stars flock to celebrate the Cannes Film Festival at the colossal Palais des Festivals.

Day 2: Bonifacio, Corsica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bonifacio's almost land-locked harbor is one of the most dramatic, totally protected harbors. It is a bustling port with excellent seafood restaurants, and a modern marina. The ancient citadel town is perched high atop a seemingly impenetrable cliff.

Day 3: Mahon, Menorca

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Gracious Georgian buildings climb the steep hills backing the Moll Ponent. Mahon's heritage also includes the invention of mayonnaise and the first distillation of gin from juniper berries.

Day 4: Ibiza, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Ibiza is a place where people hang out because, except for the medieval walls, you could almost think it was the Med's version of Key West. But away from the hustle of town, some lovely beaches await.

Day 5: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Each Star Clippers ship offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship. Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges, a revitalising spa (Royal Clipper only) and a peaceful library.

Day 6: Motril, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The town of Motril is located in the Spanish region of Andalucia on the Costa Tropical. Nestling at the foothills of the Sierra Lujar mountains, the town's coastal strip includes two main beaches - the busy Playa Poniente, and the quieter Playa Granada.

Day 7: Malaga, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Malaga's fortress palace of the Alcazaba and the Castillo de Gibralfaro are splendid examples of Moorish architecture. But it is in Granada that you can see the most romantic and magnificent expression of the Arabesque style in the glorious Alhambra Palace.

Day 8: Puerto Banus, Marbella, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Located on the Costa del Sol of Southeast Spain, Puerto Banus is a beautiful Mediterranean playground of white-washed buildings and a marina filled with yachts. The marina was developed in 1970 and over the past four decades has become adored by jet-setters around the globe for its beauty and simplicity. Famous for its prominent visitors, nightlife, and luxury boutiques, this ‘Jewel of the Costa del Sol' is very much the place to see and be seen.

Day 9: Gibraltar

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory and headland on Spain's south coast. It’s dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, a 426m-high limestone ridge. The Cable Car is one of the ways to the "Top of the Rock" and a must-see attraction for all visitors to Gibraltar. The view is spectacular and you can watch the island's famous apes. A lesser-known wildlife attraction are the dolphins leaping in the sparkling waters of Gibraltar Bay. Whole families of dolphins visit the bay and the chances of seeing them are good.

Day 10: Tangier, Morocco

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Tangier was the real model for the famous American film "Casablanca" with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. It still retains its faded mongrel charm - not entirely Moroccan, European, or African but a heady mix of all three.

Day 11: Cadiz, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Cadiz, called ‘‘the cup of silver'' is almost African in appearance, its streets lined with palm trees, its churches topped with dome-like cupolas. Take advantage of optional tours to Seville, the irresistible capital and cultural center of Andalusia with its colorful and festive lifestyle.

Day 12: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 13: Lisbon, Portugal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, Lisbon is a legendary city with over 20 centuries of history. Spreading out along the right bank of the Tagus, its downtown, the Baixa, is located in the 18th-century area around Rossio. The Alfama, one of the oldest quarters in Lisboa, still retains much of its original layout since it largely survived the earthquake of 1755.

Day 14: Portimão, Portugal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Portimão is the largest city in the western Algarve, and was traditionally a center for sardine fishing and processing. It makes a great base from which to explore the entire western Algarve. Two of the more popular trips are Lagos and Silves. Lagos was the center for Portugal’s 14th-century age of exploration and Silves served as the Algarve region's ancient capital. The tourist attractions here reflect its rich and extensive history.

Day 15: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 16: Safi, Morocco

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today, Safi is mainly modern, home to a fishing port and diversified industries. The old town which lies within the city is still very much alive. Here you may be tempted to buy pottery typical of this part of the region.

Day 17: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 18: Funchal, Madeira

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Funchal is a modern, cosmopolitan city, known for it's many top restaurants, warm year round climate and natural beauty. Facing the blue Atlantic with a backdrop of dramatic mountains, it is extremely lush. The approach to Funchal harbour is well documented as one of the two most spectacular in the world, Rio de Janeiro being the other one. Zona Velha, an old fishers’ neighbourhood in East Funchal has recently been transformed into a hip quarter packed with bars, galleries, shops and restaurants and is the place to head at nightfall.

Day 19-28: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 10 Breakfasts, 10 Lunches, 10 Dinners

Day 29: Bridgetown, Barbados | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
On the wild and rugged east coast of Barbados, the isolated beaches are the color of sunrise, the red sands having blown all the way across the Atlantic from the Sahara. The easternmost island of the Windwards, and indeed, of the entire Caribbean, reaches out to Africa and the Old World, as if not quite part of the New. Bridgetown, Barbados, is an interesting town full of contrasts. George Washington actually slept here! Trafalgar Square reminds you that the laidback, rum- and fun-loving island's British influenced heritage includes revered traditions like cricket and high tea. Disembark after breakfast and continue your independent trip back home.
