Incredible Iberian Discovery Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Lisbon (Portugal)

Fly to the UK to Lisbon for an overnight stay in a luxury hotel. Regional airports are available on request.

Day 2 - Lisbon

Your journey into wonder begins with a warm greeting from your crew as you step on board Scenic Eclipse. Raise a glass this evening and toast to the start of your luxurious cruise.

Day 3 - Portimão

On the western Algarve, Portimao is a small port with a bustling historic centre. The architecture is a blend of 19th and 20th century mixed with colourful modern constructions.

Day 4 - Seville (Spain)

On the shores of the Guadalquivir River is Seville, the elegant capital of Andalusia. Docking right in the heart of the city, simply step off Scenic Eclipse to start your own discovery.

Day 5 - Tangier (Morocco)

At the southern tip of the Mediterranean Sea lies Tangier. Guarding the Strait of Gibraltar, Tangier has for centuries been Europes's gateway to Africa. Its blend of cultures and influences is unique in Morocco; for much of its history it wasn't even governed by Morocco.

Day 6 - Malaga (Spain)

Malaga on Spain's Costa del Sol, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, is one of the oldest cities in the world. Uncover the secrets of the historic city centre and the Picasso Museum or take a panoramic tour and visit Gibralfaro Castle.

Day 7 - Cartagena

A prized location for millennia with one of the world's great natural harbours and surrounded by rich mineral deposits, Cartagena was founded by the Carthaginians and conquered by the Romans, leaving a wealth of ancient sites in and around the city.

Day 8 - Soller de Mallorca

Set in a lush valley of orange groves between the mountains and the sea, Soller is made up of narrow streets lined with traditional style residential townhouses with the famous green Mallorcan shutters. The main square, Placa Constitucio has plenty of cafes where you can enjoy a fresh orange juice or coffee.

Day 9 - Barcelona - UK

Disembark after breakfast as you say farewell to the crew and take away memories of a truly unforgettable cruise. Transfer to Barcelona airport for your flight back to the UK.
