Aug 09 Barcelona, Spain Depart: 3:00 pm

Barcelona, Spain

The capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona, lives up to its reputation as a center of grand architecture and inspiring art. Antoni Gaudi’s Park Guell displays architecture as art, making for a whimsical and colorful stroll through Barcelona. Stretching from La Rambla to Via Laietana you will find the Gothic Quarter, the city’s historic center with intricate medieval buildings and streets turned into modern bars, clubs, and restaurants. A short way up La Rambla you’ll come across La Boqueria, one of Europe’s largest and most famous food markets, filled with fruits, pastries, and many tasty samples of local fare.

Aug 10 Valencia, Spain Arrive: 9:00 am Depart: 7:00 pm

Valencia, Spain

An exploration of Spain’s third-largest city, Valencia, will leave you in wide-eyed wonder. Its architecture, culture, and flavors amid sun and blue skies provides pure energy and anticipation. Valencia holds the same charms of historical structures as more frequently visited cities in Spain, but with fewer crowds. Over in the City of Arts and Sciences, an expanse of 350,000 square meters of the old Turia riverbed, many institutions – like the Oceanográfic Valencia, Europe’s largest aquarium – invite you to come and play.

Aug 11 Ibiza, Spain Arrive: 8:00 am Depart: 11:00 pm

Ibiza, Spain

Dalt Vila, also known as Ibiza Town, is one of the Balearic’s most picturesque cities and a fabulous place to wander around. It’s home to an old port and historic city ramparts and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island of Ibiza has some of the most beautiful and well-known beaches in the Mediterranean, including Ses Figueretes and Playa D’en Bossa. Wherever you choose to swim or sunbathe, you will find inviting clear blue waters and golden sands lined with beach bars. For a more relaxing excursion, head toward S’Espalmador, a small, uninhabited island between Ibiza and Formentera.

Aug 12 Palma de Mallorca, Spain Arrive: 7:00 am Depart: 3:00 pm

Palma de Mallorca, Spain

You know you have arrived in Palma de Mallorca, a major city of the Balearics of Spain, when you are met with majestic limestone cliffs plunging into glimmering blue water. On shore, its rich history is evident in its wonderful buildings, castles, and cathedrals. Take in the landmark Gothic cathedral, La Seu, with its enormous rose window and its wrought-iron canopy over the main altar designed by famed Spanish architect Antonio Gaudí. Go for a run or bike ride along the seaside promenade that connects Palma de Mallorca to the neighboring villages of Portitxol and Es Molinar. Beyond the city, explore the lush Sierra de Tramuntana Valley, the island’s major mountain range and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Aug 12 Solar Eclipse (At Sea) Arrive: 7:38 pm Depart: 8:49 pm

Solar Eclipse (At Sea)

Out at sea with only a never-ending expanse of horizon all around is the perfect way to look to the sky as the moment of totality approaches. Gathered on deck with your expedition guide - a resident astronomer - and fellow explorers, there’s an atmosphere of anticipation. Let the astronomy expert engage you with insight into the cosmic phenomenon. As we marvel at the spectacle, there will also be a wonderful celebration to mark the occasion.

Please note: Your eclipse viewing experience may change based on weather or cloud coverage.

Banyuls-sur-Mer, France

The commune of Banyuls-sur-Mer is a hidden gem nestled on the southern coast of France where azure waters meet lush vineyards. Stroll through bustling markets brimming with fresh produce, fragrant herbs, and an array of seafood straight from the Mediterranean. It’s here you will also venture into the birthplace of Banyuls wine, a sweet, fortified wine that pairs beautifully with both savory and sweet dishes. Enter sun-kissed vineyards and discover the art of winemaking with local vintners or embark on guided tours through historic wineries where the passionate makers will share the secrets of their craft as you taste the vintage, like at the majestic Château de Valmy. Explore the stunning Paulilles Bay beach, the perfect place for sunbathing, swimming and seaside picnics. Take a scenic drive along the Côte Vermeille, offering breathtaking views and hidden coves to discover.

Sete (Montpellier), France

Sete lies at the foot of Mount St. Clair between the Gulf of Thau and the Mediterranean Sea. Hike to the summit to explore the Quartier Haute, once inhabited by Italian fishermen and now home mostly to artists who have opened their ateliers. There you can also peruse the Paul Valery Museum, displaying contemporary artists, including Maurice Sarthou, Albert Marquet, and Henry Matisse, as well as the church Notre-Dame-De-La-Salette, built on the site of an ancient fortress built by Louis XIII. A visit to Sete should include a jaunt to the beach-a heavenly strip of sandy coast that stretches for more than seven miles.

Antibes, France

Along the famed Côte d’Azur (or French Riviera) lies the coastal city of Antibes, a jewel of natural beauty and fascinating historic sites amid France’s many renowned destinations. Overlooking the Baie des Anges you find Vieil Antibes (Old Town), a combination of cobblestone streets with modern-day restaurants and boutiques that offers a quaint scene for a leisurely stroll. Pristine shores and waterfront restaurants of the beaches invite you to spend a lazy day lounging on the soft sand with a drink in hand.
