Day 1 Lisbon, Portugal | Embark

The most beautiful approach to the Portuguese capital is to travel up the River Tagus, where one of the city's most famous landmarks, the Torre de Belém, has been greeting visitors right on the estuary since 1521. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and transports visitors back to the days when Portugal was a naval power. There are many landmarks, such as the facades of the houses decorated with azulejos tile work and the ancient trams that rattle through the city. But Lisbon has many different sides: joie de vivre comes face to face with the melancholy of Fado music, winding lanes in the old city meet wide boulevards, while magnificent churches and austere monasteries show the two sides of former religious faith. Explore this delightful city before boarding your ship and embarking on your cruise.

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Relax aboard your ship as you cruise to your next destination.

Day 3 Cadiz, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The old city of Cádiz, around 3,000 years old, has a picturesque location on a narrow headland, right by the Playa de la Caleta with its elegant beachside promenade. Visit the Andalusian capital of Seville and you will be transported back to the heyday of Moorish splendor and rule, but also the age of discovery. This town sits on the Guadalquivir River was a centre of Spanish maritime trade with the New World. Many buildings in the old town are registered as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the splendid Moorish Alcazar fortress and the huge Gothic Cathedral of Santa Maria de la Sede. Seville is a fun-loving city that is still at the center of Andalusian culture, and is considered the proud birthplace of Flamenco.

Day 4 Malaga, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In 2003, the Museo Picasso opened in a 16th century Renaissance palace and is dedicated to the artist's extensive life's work. This historic old city invites you to take a stroll and its buildings gleam like new. And above everything towers the Alcazaba, a mighty walled fortress. The port was completely redesigned when the city was opened to the sea and you can now take a lovely stroll along the promenade. In Málaga's hinterland you can see the most beautiful aspects of traditional Andalusia. From a distance the typical Andalusian villages look like white dabs of paint shining out from the brown of the barren mountain landscape.

Day 5 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Relax aboard your ship as you cruise to your next destination.

Day 6 Valencia, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
By turns centuries old and totally modern, Valencia is everything all at once. Today the beautiful old town and the old silk market "La Lonja de la Seda," a UNESCO World Heritage Site, still bear witness to the city's wealth in the Middle Ages. A brand new part of the city is situated in a drained river bed and has avant-garde buildings including a futuristic opera house, the largest aquarium in Europe, a botanical garden and a public park. Valencia intriguingly combines its 2,000-year heritage with its visions for the future. 

Day 7 Barcelona, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Barcelona revels in contrasts. Many enthuse over the beautiful elegant squares and boulevards, while others look for medieval romance in the Gothic quarter. Some love the artistic treasures in the Picasso Museum or the Joan Miró Foundation, but for most people Barcelona is the capital of Catalan Art Nouveau and its glory is epitomized in the spectacular Palau de la Música. At every turn, encounter the playfully opulent creations of architect Antonio Gaudi. His exuberant fantasies are evident in the numerous houses, idiosyncratic parks and the famous, as-yet incomplete Sagrada Familia cathedral, which has been under construction since 1882.

Day 8 Barcelona, Spain | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
After breakfast, disembark the ship to continue your independent travels, or transfer to the airport to return home.

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.
