Spain & Iberia

Charming Profiles

The high energy of Portugal, Spain and Morocco’s local cultures call out for exploration. Embark on a magical journey from Portimão with opportunities to capture the Algarve region’s stunning coastal scenery on an excursion through the grottos. Staying late in the historic Cádiz, discover some of the world’s most legendary wines at the birthplace of sherry. Uncover the secrets of making the perfect mint tea, a time-honored Moroccan tradition, and savor it with freshly baked bread in Tangier. While Motril is often a gateway to the iconic city of Granada and Alhambra Palace — an outstanding example of Moorish architecture and home to the UNESCO-listed Albayzín — this Spanish town holds a charm all its own. In Cartagena, a city inhabited for more than two millennia, search for secret tunnels that once housed World War II submarines. Acquaint yourself with the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alta Vila from Ibiza for an enriching journey into Spanish culture. Countless in-depth explorations await on this Epicurean Expedition.

Jun 07 Lisbon, Portugal Depart: 6:00 pm

Lisbon, Portugal

Portugal’s capital Lisbon comes alive with a rich history seen in every nook and cranny of the city. From the resting place of famous explorer Vasco de Gama at Jeronimos Monastery to the impressive turrets of São Jorge Castle dating all the way back to second century B.C.E., Lisbon offers a deep dive into the past to satiate the most curious travelers. While Western Europe’s oldest city boasts an array of Baroque and Neoclassical architecture, that does not mean it has remained stuck in the past. On the contrary, the colorful culture and vibrant life that runs throughout the city’s restaurants, shops, and rooftop bars make it buzz with infectious energy. Taking a tuk tuk through its hard-to-reach passages allows you to experience Lisbon as the locals do.

Jun 08 Portimão, Portugal Arrive: 10:00 am Depart: 7:00 pm

Portimão, Portugal

Along the southwestern coast of the Algarve region of Portugal lies the vibrant port city of Portimão, equal parts history come to life and modern, cosmopolitan atmosphere. The Megalithic Monuments of Alcalar contain prehistoric remnants of the country’s beginnings while Praia da Rocha (Rock Beach) presents the quintessential beach scene that makes this an ideal, tropical getaway. Not far from here you’ll find Praia dos Três Castelos, a beach well-known for its strange and dramatic rock formations of limestone. Located in the urban setting of Portimão, the Fort of Santa Catarina creates a stark contrast with its medieval construct, where walking the ancient paths call to your inner child and make you feel a sense of wonder and imagination.

Jun 09 Cadiz, Spain Arrive: 7:00 am Depart: 11:00 pm

Cadiz, Spain

Cádiz, the province and city, is located on Spain’s southwestern edge and achieved its greatest fame during the era of the Catholic kings, as it became the headquarters for Spain’s exploration fleet and treasure ships. With the only inland port in Spain and lying farther from the coastline than other port cities, Seville offers over 2,000 years of history for the curious mind. Set out toward Donana National Park, Spain’s largest protected oasis and UNESCO World Heritage Site. From Lawrence of Arabia to the Star Wars franchise, Seville’s Plaza de España has played a role in film history..

Jun 10 Tangier, Morocco Arrive: 7:00 am Depart: 5:00 pm

Tangier, Morocco

A Moroccan port in the Strait of Gibraltar, Tangier has acted as the connection between Europe and North Africa since Phoenician times. It’s also a less-traveled port, so it offers a more authentic feel to city life in Morocco. Wander the medina to lose yourself in the maze of narrow streets leading to the Grand Socco marketplace. The Kasbah Museum, the old sultan’s palace restored to its former glory, contains a dazzling array of detailed maps, mesmerizing courtyards and signature Moorish architecture. Explore the Caves of Hercules, near Cap Spartel just outside of Tangier city limits.

Jun 11 Motril (Alhambra), Spain Arrive: 8:00 am Depart: 6:00 pm

Motril (Alhambra), Spain

While Motril is often a gateway to the iconic city of Granada and Alhambra Palace — an outstanding example of Moorish architecture — this small Spanish town in the Andalusia region holds a charm all its own. Local parks, historic sites and independent restaurants make it easy to immerse yourself in an authentic, Spanish experience. Known as the lungs of the city, the Pueblos de América Park contains lush scenery with an abundance of picturesque shrubs, palms and a variety of tree species. In the town center, find the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Head. Surrounded by tropical palm trees and impeccable garden space, the church offers a stunning view, including its own ornate decorations within its walls. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stop at a local eatery for a helping of San Juan casserole, made with pumpkin, or tapas of shrimp, espichás and sardines. In Granada, discover more cultural history at the Albayzín, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the city’s historical Arab quarter.

Jun 12 Cartagena, Spain Arrive: 10:00 am Depart: 8:00 pm

Cartagena, Spain

Along the south of Spain on the Mediterranean coast sits Cartagena, founded in 227 BCE and inhabited for more than two millennia. From the 2,000-year-old Roman theater to the ARQUA Marine Archaeology Museum, it’s a place rife with stories for the curious mind to dive into. Driving down dirt roads about 30 minutes outside of Cartagena, you find yourself at the tip of Cape Tiñoso, where the impressive Batería de Castillitos resides. Bring yourself back to the present with shopping, bars, cafes and restaurants on Calle Mayor. While Cartagena only has one beach, Cala Cortina, it’s an oasis jewel located within a tiny cove.

Jun 13 Ibiza, Spain Arrive: 10:00 am Depart: 6:00 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.

Jun 14 Barcelona, Spain Arrive: 8:00 am

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.
