Day 1: Lisbon, Portugal | Embark

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 2: 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 and so the tourist attractions here reflect its rich and extensive history.

Day 3: Cadiz, Spain

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

Day 4: Tangier, Morocco | Gibraltar, Great Britain

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
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.

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 possible to watch the islands 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 6: 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 can see the most romantic and magnificent expression of the Arabesque style in the glorious Alhambra Palace.

Day 7: At sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The ship offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry the ship from one gorgeous destination to the next. During the time on board, 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, wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges, a revitalizing spa, and a peaceful library.

Day 8: Ibiza, Balearic Islands - Spain

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

Day 9: Palma, Mallorca - Balearic Islands - Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Towering over the harbor, Palma's enormous Gothic cathedral is a powerful symbol of the religious fervor which gripped all of Spain shortly after the defeat of the Moors. Built by Jaumé I, its vast open nave and soaring Gothic columns have been added to over the centuries. Behind the Cathedral, a maze of twisting streets leads to designer boutiques and open-air markets.

Day 10: Mahon, Menora - Balearic Islands - Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Gracious Georgian buildings that 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 11: At sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The ship offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry the ship from one gorgeous destination to the next.

Day 12: Bonifacio, Corsica - France

  • 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 13: Civitavecchia (port for Rome), Italy | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
St. Peter's, with its breathtaking Sistine Chapel, newly restored to its former glory; the Spanish Steps, where all Rome passes by; the Colosseum, where gladiators fought to the death, and the Pantheon, considered to be the most perfect architectural statement of the ages.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
