Spain & Portugal Cruises

Discover the jewels of Spain & Portugal

Spain will enchant you with a twist of a Flamenco skirt, your first sumptuous tapas meal, the surreal blend of architectural styles and cultures and the joyful fiestas that sing out through the streets at night. While Medieval castles, cobblestone villages, captivating cities and golden beaches are the just the beginning for idyllic Portugal.

Vibrant, passionate and exciting Spain is very much at home with its rich history of cultural blending and there is much to explore of its Moorish, Romanesque and Gothic past while revelling in the contemporary colours and creative soul of its present. From the archaeological marvel of Cartagena to the birthplace of Piccaso , the magnificent Alhambra Palace and the azure coastal Mediterranean islands, the natural landscape is as diverse and bewitching as the cities and towns accompanying.

Outside the cities, Portugal’s beauty unfolds in all its startling variety. You can go hiking and discover the lighthouse on the rugged headland of Cabo San Vincente or the dramatic limestone coastline of the Ponta da Piedade made up of sea pillars, fragile rock arches and hidden grottos, all of which have been chiselled-out by savage winter storms. There is more than 800km of coast offering more places to soak up the splendour.

Our journeys to Spain and Portugal will take you to the cities of Barcelona, Cartagena, Malaga and Seville, brimming with exquisite architecture, art and history. Discover Lisbon and the stunning Algarve region of Portugal and onto to the smaller, hidden gems of south west Europe the  where the streets are delightful historical mazes, and there are stunning cultural surprises behind every hidden corner.
