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: 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, and a peaceful library.

Day 3: Portimão, Portugal

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Portimao is the largest city in the western Algarve, and was traditionally a centre 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 centre 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 4: Tangier, Morocco | Gibraltar, British Overseas Territory

  • 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.

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 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.""

  • 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 8: Malaga, Spain | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
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.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
