The charm of Malta's sister island, Gozo, is immediately apparent. Steeped in myth, Gozo is considered the legendary Calypso's isle of Homer's Odyssey. It's green, rural, and calm, relying on fishing, agriculture, and tourism. It is one of the Mediterranean's top diving destinations, with an incredible range of shore and boat dives, including reefs, caves, and wrecks. There are also knights' watchtowers, tiny chapels, and beautiful, peaceful beaches to explore.

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.

Day 4: Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Cagliari is the capital city of the Italian island of Sardinia. It's known for its hilltop Castello, a medieval walled quarter high above. The rest of the town.

Day 7: Palma de 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 that gripped all of Spain shortly after the defeat of the Moors. Built by Jaume 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 8: Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Ibiza is 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 9: Cartagena, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The city's naval, maritime, and historical museums provide insight into the 2,000 years this city has been a significant port. It's now developing into a vibrant tourist attraction.

Day 10: Motril, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 11: 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.

  • 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; you can watch the island's famous apes. A lesser-known wildlife attraction is 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 13: Tangier, Morocco

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

Day 14: 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, and its churches are topped with dome-like cupolas.

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!
