University at Sea is organizing International Group Airfare from several gateway cities. They will also check at booking your air to be sure the group air is the best price available for your gateway. If it is not, they will offer you the alternatives.

PRE CRUISE HOTEL
We recommend you fly in a day prior to date of sailing to avoid any issues from flight delays and to give you a day or two to see Barcelona. La Sagrada Familia is quite amazing to see.

POST CRUISE TOUR TO GRANADA AND ALHAMBRA
For those of you with more time, you may wish to take advantage of the post tour to Granada. We can train from Barcelona to Granada for a 2-3 night stay. You can enjoy a city tour, a visit to Alhambra, then fly home from there.

DINING
We have arranged for a block of tables at early seating - 6:30pm so the group can stay together and network over dinner. Of course if you wish to dine elsewhere for an evening or simply take a night off, it is no problem. We will have the tables available for you to dine each evening.

Ports of Call

Barcelona, Spain -

Barcelona is a one of the world's great cities. Stroll down her tree-lined boulevards, the magnificent Passeig de Gràcia or the more touristed Las Ramblas. On the Passeig, shop a serious fashion district while marveling at examples of Mordenisme architecture, seemingly sculpted from the stuff of dreams (Gaudi's masterpiece of a family home, Casa Batlló is well worth a visit). If a trip on the Passeig hasn't convinced you of Gaudi's genius, a visit to La Sagrada Familia Cathedral will do the trick; this fantastic, soaring marvel will live on in your memory long after you've returned.

Not far from the Passeig and just north of Las Ramblas, the Gothic Quarter (the Barri Gotic) provides an abundance of shopping opportunities for all tastes, and a bit of European history to boot - check out the tranquil Cathedral of Barcelona. To see a bit of local life a visit to a food market is a quick, fun detour: try Santa Caterina near the Cathedral or Mercado de La Boqueria, right off of Las Ramblas.

Barcelona's food is also a highlight: stop into a tapas bar and try a variety of delicacies. "Standard" restaurants of every style are available, too. And, there's music, too! Visit an underground jazz club or the magnificent Palau de la Música Catalana; or stop by the Palau Dalmases for a stunning, flamenco performance (it's near the Picasso museum). Did we mention art? One of the largest collections of Picasso's art is found at the Museau Picasso, and a great collection of contemporary, figurative (i.e not abstract) painting and sculpture is housed at the European Museum of Modern Art just around the corner.

It's probably clear by now that you really can't get it all done in a day (even if all means "just the must-sees"). So, stay for a day or three in the Gothic Quarter or near Plaça de Catalunya and really get a feel for what makes Barcelona such a wonderful place. Partly it's the result of the "accidents" of its history and present: as the regional capital of Spain's prosperous Catalunya region, Barcelona has a "flavor" that is a bit of a mix between Spanish and French (it's located quite close to the French border). Yes, you can practice your Spanish here - it attracts Spaniards from throughout the country - but you'll also see and hear Catalan with it's own charm. You won't regret you time here.

Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain - Floating gemlike off Spain's Mediterranean Riviera, Palma offers pearls, pottery and perfectly sublime sandy beaches. The historic district of the city is a great stop for an inexpensive good meal, a visit to a wonderous cathedral (for those seeking peace, consider visiting the quiet of the Saint Francis cathedral rather than its more touristed big brother. Shopping abounds in this european vacation spot as well as a very beautiful, small modern art museum with free entrance. Or take a day excursion to visit charming and quiet Valldemosa, where George Sand and Frederic Chopin spent a romantic winter in 1838.

Provence (Marseille), France -

La Spezia, Italy (Cinque Terre/Pisa/Florence) - La Spezia is a gateway to some of Italy's greatest treasures.

A quite pleasant small city itself, is located on a natural harbor and boasts a beautiful park parallel to its waterfront, substantial shopping, plenty of opportunities for good food, an archaeolgical museum in its historic hilltop fort and a nice contemporary art museum.

A short distance La Spezia and you are on the Cinque Terre ("The Five Cities") coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of Italy's great natural jewels. These five small villages dotting the coast are free of car traffic and are reached only by a railway, hiking trails, or a pedestrian ferry. Small, winding paths connect many of the villages, and a light amount of hiking will afford you some spectacular views of cliffs, coastline, and stone terraces.

A little further afield is Pisa, one of the great renaissance cities whose ships dominated trade for decades. It is best known today, of course for it's famous "leaning Tower," from the top of which Galileo Galilei demonstrated that gravity's strength was independant of the weight of a falling object. It stands there still, if somewhat crookedly, after 650 years.

Sill further but worth the trip, is Florence where you can view the timeless treasures from the very height of renaissance achievements: the lofty Duomo, Giotto's gorgeous bell tower, Michelangelo's original David, the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio over the Arno.

Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy - Rome, Italy’s capital, is a sprawling, cosmopolitan city with nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display. Ancient ruins such as the Forum and the Colosseum evoke the power of the former Roman Empire. Vatican City, headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, has St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes.

Naples, Italy - Capital of Southern Italy, the largest city of Campania, Naples is the third most populated city in Italy (after Rome and Milan), with over a million inhabitants, and is the most important industrial center and trading port for the South. Naples itself can provide a day's fun and entertainment, if its somewhat rundown appearance doesn't dissuade you. Or, join a tour of incredible Pompeii, frozen in time since A.D. 79 when Mt. Vesuvius brought an end to that then-thriving city. Or, take a quick ferry across the bay to the flowery Isle of Capri. Or, (yes, there's more) visit fabulous Sorrento, vacation spot for the well to do.

Cruise Line Regulation: Because of the group size and to accommodate the Dine Around option, so that everyone can change seats and network during dinner, rather than having to have assigned seating every night the ship is requiring you prepay your gratuities. They can be paid next month (May) if you wish, rather than with your final payment.
* COMPETITIVE PRICING PROMISE: While we are not a 'cruise discounter,' we will match any price offered by the cruise line, directly to the general public, at the time of booking. This offers includes many short-term, promotional rates. All cruise line rates can be withdrawn by the cruise line at any time and are capacity controlled.
PRICING SUBJECT TO CHANGE: Although subject to change at any time, the listed prices are generally available up to about 90 days before sailing; at that time they convert to typically higher, market rates. Rates offered directly by the cruise line and quoted by our agents are also subject to change at any time, can be withdrawn at any time and are capacity controlled.
CANCELLATION PENALTY POLICY WILL APPLY: Cancellation policies vary by cruise line, itinerary and length of cruise. When reserving your stateroom, please review the policy applicable to this cruise with our staff. We strongly recommend Travel Insurance to cover the unexpected.
FUEL SUPPLEMENT: Cruiselines may implement a fuel surcharge depending on the price of crude oil.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel protection is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel protection is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel protection is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.

  • TravelSafe Basic Plan - A plan for those who want just the bare necessities.

after you cruise

THE SPLENDOUR OF MOORISH CORDOBA AND GRANADA
3 Night Post-Cruise Package

GRANADA possesses an outstanding heritage, the result of a blend of civilizations. Perched high on a strategic hill, the citadel of the Alhambra and the General life display a collection of lush gardens and magical palaces, the only royal residences of an Islamic dynasty still standing up since the Middle Ages. Courtyards where water is omnipresent and walls covered by refined geometric and floral motifs, recreate in a codified manner the image of the Garden of Eden.

Your guide, an expert in Moorish and Islamic Art, will introduce you to the secrets and symbols contained in these palaces worthy of the Arabian Nights, a reflection of a whole civilization.

The city possesses bewitching historical neighbourhoods, like the Albayzín. This oldest quarter of Granada, a UNESCO heritage site, keeps the layout of the Medieval metropolis, a labyrinth of winding streets and traditional houses with terraces of gardens gazing at striking views: the mighty towers of the Alhambra and in the background the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

The Historic Center of Granada possesses hidden treasures of its Moorish and Islamic past, the oratory of the Madraza (Islamic University), the al-Qaysariya (the Silk Market) and a Caravanserai of the 14th century, all of them witnesses of the confluence of trade, wealth, circulation of ideas, technologies and sciences in the cities of Al Andalusia, the area of Spain and the Iberian Peninsula controlled by the Moors for 800 years during the Middle Ages.

Basil Davidson, one of the most noted historians declared that there were no lands at that time (the eighth century) "more admired by its neighbours, or more comfortable to live in, than a rich African civilization which took shape in Spain."
 

ITINERARY: CORDOBA, LA MEZUITA, THE ALHAMBRA AND GRANADA

  • You will be met at the ship and transferred to the Train Station for a comfortable journey to Cordoba, once the Capital of Al Andalusia. Food is available for purchase on board the train.
  • After arrival in Cordoba, you will be transferred for dinner and overnight in Cordoba (Night of 8/4)
  • At its height, Cordoba, the center of the Moorish territory in Spain, was the most modern city in Europe. The streets were paved, with raised sidewalks and ten miles of the streets were well illuminated by lamps. Cordoba had 900 public baths. In the tenth and eleventh centuries, public libraries in Europe were non- existent, but education was universal in Moorish Spain, including more than seventy libraries, of which the one in Cordoba housed six hundred manuscripts. Ref: Wikipedia
  • The following morning after breakfast at the hotel in Cordoba, you will visit the Great Mosque of Cordoba (La Mezquita) A UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is still one of the architectural wonders of the world. Its low scarlet and gold roof, supported by 1,000 columns of marble, jasper and porphyry, was lit by thousands of Brass and silver lamps which burned perfumed oils.
  • What UNESCO says: "Cordoba's period of greatest glory began in the 8th century after the Moorish conquest, when some 300 mosques and innumerable palaces and public buildings were built to rival the splendours of Constantinople, Damascus and Baghdad. In the 13th century, under Ferdinand III, the Saint, Cordoba's Great Mosque was turned into a cathedral and new defensive structures, particularly the Alcá zar de los Reyes Cristianos and the Torre Fortaleza de la Calahorra, were erected."
  • After a day of touring Cordoba, you will continue the journey to Granada for dinner and the next two nights. (Nights of 8/5 and 8/6)
  • The following morning, you will visit Alhambra, A UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • 10:15 am - Transfer Hotel Corona to Alhambra in a coach. Your guide, Daniele, will also meet you in the lobby of your hotel.
  • 10:45 - Beginning of the Alhambra tour through the gardens and the Generalife. Entrance to the Nasrid Palaces. At the end of the visit, we will stroll to the Restaurant located on the hill of the Alhambra (10 minute walk)
  • Lunch on your own at Carmen the San Miguel, which enjoys striking views on Granada
  • After lunch, your coach will be waiting for you next to the restaurant, for the transfer to the Albaicin quarter. If some children and adults feel tired, the bus will stop on the way at the hotel. We would continue to the Albaicin quarter with the rest of the group.
  • Walking tour of the Moorish city of Granada. The bus leaves us at the entrance of the Albaicin quarter. We stroll through the labyrinth of narrow streets of this oldest quarter of Granada, which marvelously keeps the layout of the Medieval Moorish City. We walk down the hill, to discover in the historic center of Granada important vestiges of the Moorish past, the silk market, the Madraza (ancient university), a caravanserai, etc.
  • We will have dinner at a restaurant in Grenada prior to returning to the hotel for overnight.
  • After an unforgettable journey, we will transfer to Malaga for flights home with many memories to share with one another.
