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 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 4 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 5 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 6 Santa Cruz, Tenerife, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The island of Tenerife is bisected by steep volcanic mountains cut by garden-like valleys lush with flowers and vegetation. In the capital of Santa Cruz, visit the anthropological museum and learn about the original inhabitants of Tenerife, the stone age Guanche people. Not to be missed is a spectacular drive into the mountains, where 3,718-meter Mount Teide, Spain's tallest mountain, is covered in snow much of the year.

Day 7-16 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 10 Breakfasts, 10 Lunches, 10 Dinners

Day 17 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.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
