Choosing a cruise from Spain
is a matter of deciding where you want to visit and how long you want to be at sea. Spain has a wealth of ports of call that encompass the beauty and culture of the country and is a jumping-off point for voyages to neighboring Mediterranean countries.
Where to Visit
Cruises from Spain away from mainland travel to some of the Mediterranean’s hot spots and hidden gems. Many combine culture, time visiting sun swept islands, and ports of call in countries that have captivated travelers for centuries.
Setting sail to Spain’s Canary Islands
is an adventure that takes you to the
the island of Tenerife, where the country’s tallest volcano stands guard over the
resorts, protected areas, beaches, and port side restaurants and cafes.
Lanzarote Island is both an eerie volcanic landscape that conjures visions of
other worlds and home to some of the archipelago’s best vineyards-the fruits
of their labors found in the cafes and restaurants of the capital city of
Arrecife. La Gomera Island is one of the smallest in the chain and the least
visited, giving those who stop here a glimpse into the unspoiled beauty of the
Canary’s away from the glitz and glamour of the more popular destinations.
Casablanca brings the country’s romance into focus, blending Roman, French and Portuguese influences, architecture, and traditions with modern sensibilities. Tangier was once a freewheeling mecca for beat writers and scions of American industry; today it is reborn as a hip port city where refurbished museums are rife with a history dating back to the 5th century B.C, and colonial-era neighborhoods are bustling with cutting-edge restaurants and cafes.
Spain cruises that head to Rome
stop at Civitavecchia, a resort city that has been a port for Rome for more than a thousand years. From here you can discover the capital’s historic landmarks, including the Coliseum, the Sistine Chapel, and the Pantheon. Other ports of call are Syracuse, Sicily; where historic ruins, Baroque churches, and local food showcase some of the best of Italy’s past and present.
Spain cruises that head to France
stop at Bonifacio, Corsica; a seaside city where the ancestors of Napoleon lived that is alive with French and Italian influences amid beaches and mountains. Nice, a Rivera town that radiates with charm, resonates with historic relevance, and regals itself in bringing depth to any visit is always worth a few hours in the city.
Length of Trips
There are a number of ways to explore Spain and the surrounding countries ranging from 4-day cruises to 15 Day cruises that show you more of the Mediterranean. Shorter trips are ideal for exploring the Canary Islands
or taking a quick cruise
to France before returning to Barcelona. Mid-length Spain cruises have the advantage of covering more ground such as exploring the Porto River’s wine route.
Longer cruises from Spain take you farther abroad, stopping at some of the Spain hotspots before moving on to explore different ports of call in Italy.
