Ports of Call
Barcelona, Spain (Embark) - Barcelona is a one of a kind, world-class city. While away the day exploring the beautiful, tree-shaded Las Ramblas. Or, marvel at its fantastic Art Nouveau architecture, with dozens of buildings that seem to have been sculpted from the stuff of dreams, like the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. For the more worldly, shop for exquisite Lladro ceramics, chic spanish fashions or enjoy a cuisine that many say has rival's the French for the title of world's best.
Cadiz, Spain - This 3,000-year-old town is your portal to Seville, home of flamenco and the exquisite Alcazar Palace; and Jerez, sherry capital at vine-covered bodegas; From Cadiz you can taste the sherries of Jerez and visit an Andalusian equestrian school, or drive through cork plantations to see the marvelous city of Seville with its Alcazar Royal Palace. Cadiz itself boasts a 13th-century cathedral and ancient castle walls.
Cartagena, Spain - In the southeast of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea, you'll find a natural harbor surrounded by five hills - welcome to the seaport known as Cartagena. Cartagena was originally settled in 223 BC. The city has flourished under Roman, Muslim and Arab rule, and today offers a vast cultural legacy. Cartagena was the main city of the Spanish Carthaginians, who named it after their own capital. The port is rich in ancient and maritime history. The town is walled, the harbor defended by forts, and Roman ruins are scattered throughout.
Casablanca, Morocco - Travel from Casablanca, the city of Bergman and Bogart, and tour to Rabat, Morocco's serene capital. In the south, on the edge of the Western Sahara, Marrakech is the city of souks, storytellers, snake charmers and the famed Koutoubia Minaret.
Gibraltar, British Territory - As long as the Barbary Apes remain, the British will rule Gibraltar‐this is the tradition that has held for 350 years. These pesky primates are a favorite with visitors despite their incessant chatter and light-fingered ways. Ride to the top of the Rock for great views over the Strait of Gibraltar‐on a clear day you'll see Africa.
Lisbon, Portugal - Make your own discoveries in the city that launched the Age of Discovery. Cross the River Tagus on its soaring suspension bridge. Wander the maze of streets in the Alfama, the old Moorish quarter, dominated by the medieval Castle of St. George where peacocks strut and shriek. Stroll the Baixa, shop for elegant shoes.
Málaga, Spain - Málaga is the gateway to the Andalusian countryside and the Costa del Sol, where you can dig your toes in to the sand of some of the most impressive beaches. But this bustling town has more to offer than surf and sun. Málaga also boasts a number of impressive palaces, including the Moorish Alcabaza and Gibralfaro, as well as the majestic Alhambra Palace.
Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain - Floating gemlike off Spain's Mediterranean Riviera, these islands offer you pearls, pottery and perfectly sublime sandy beaches. Visit Valldemosa, where George Sand and Frederic Chopin spent a romantic winter in 1838.

Our staff can assist you with all your travel arrangements.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance 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 insurance 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 insurance 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.
