Day 5 - At Sea

Enjoy the ship’s facilities on a relaxing day at sea.

Day 6 - Cádiz for Seville

Believed to be one of Europe's oldest cities, it is from Cadiz that Spain's many galleons once sailed in quest of New World treasure. Admire its ancient palaces and castles, cathedrals and churches, museums and gardens. The picturesque old city looks quite Moorish in appearance with its narrow cobbled streets and small squares. From Cadiz you can reach the beautiful city of Seville with its impressive Gothic Cathedral and the Alcazar which was the palace of Spanish kings for nearly seven centuries.

Day 7 - Gibraltar

Gibraltar and Mt Abyla were known as the Pillars of Hercules in ancient times. Today it is a renowned headland under British rule. Keep an eye out for the famous Barbary apes that live on the island and perhaps enjoy a cable car ride for panoramic views across to Africa.

Day 8 - Casablanca for Marrakech (Morocco)

Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco full of vibrant boulevards and colourful bazaars, and with a history going back centuries. Following an earthquake in 1755 the town was rebuilt and renamed Dar Al Beida (The White House) in Arabic, which the Spanish eventually translated as Casablanca. The French gave Casablanca its wide boulevards, public parks and imposing civic buildings. The astonishing Hassan II Mosque dominates the entire city. It has the world's tallest minaret and the prayer hall can accommodate 25,000.

Day 9 - At Sea

Enjoy the ship’s facilities on a relaxing day at sea.

Day 10 - Arrecife (Lanzarote)

In the 15th century, Arrecife was a small fishing harbour. Today it is the capital of Lanzarote, the fourth largest island in the Canaries, located just north of the Tropic of Cancer. Perhaps enjoy duty free shopping at Calle Leon y Castila.

Day 11 - Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Tenerife)

Tenerife is the largest island in the Canary archipelago and is overlooked by the imposing Mount Teide. The island's fascinating capital, Santa Cruz, is home to several museums, churches and restaurants. Perhaps visit the exotic gardens of Garcia Sanabria Park or Loro Parque, with its tropical gardens and aquarium.

Day 12 - Funchal (Madeira)

Funchal is the capital of Madeira and set in a spectacular natural amphitheatre. Admire the whitewashed buildings with red tiled roofs tumbling down the mountain. A cable car runs above the city to Monte, the start of the wicker toboggan ride. Popular souvenirs include wicker baskets and the famous Madeira wine.

Day 13 - At Sea

Enjoy the ship’s facilities on a relaxing day at sea.

Day 14 - Lisbon (Portugal)

The Portuguese capital has a quirky charm and much character. The steep, cobbled streets of the ancient Moorish Alfama district lead to wonderful viewpoints looking over the city. Perhaps enjoy a visit to the unique four-storey Belem Tower fortress, the breathtaking Jeronimos Monastery or the modern Monument to the Discoveries, shaped like the prow of a sailing ship. Lisbon's magnificent harbour is spanned by the longest suspension bridge in Europe.
