Spain & Portugal

Captivating experiences and locations

A Mediterranean cruise to Spain and Portugal combines the best spectacular scenery, classical history and outstanding cuisine of both southern European countries, along with great weather. The rich cultural diversity of these neighbouring destinations contrast and compliment each other perfectly. While in Spain you can explore the famous city sights of Granada, Seville and the Andalucian capital of Jerez de la Frontera, the Moorish and Spanish heritage and the UNESCO classified monuments. Portugal too, has plenty of diversity to attract you.

Cruising the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea is the perfect way in which to holiday. Between April and October Spain and Portugal typically maintains mild temperatures with very little seasonal changes. The summer season is long and relaxed and ideal for half-day and full-day excursions to popular landmarks, unspoilt terrain and lively cosmopolitan districts.

In Spain, you can visit Ronda, the birthplace of bull fighting and learn all about traditional Spanish culture and customs. Portugal ports of call include Lisbon, one of Europe’s oldest capital cities, and captivating towns and villages. With over 800km of stunning coastline there are plenty of opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and dolphin watching. Hiking, cycling and exploring the countryside will also spark the imagination on this unforgettable experience.
