Spain & Portugal (Cruise): Seville to Lisbon

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,863

A Europe cruise with a difference, this unique, sundrenched itinerary takes you through the heart of Southern Spain before exploring Portugal’s beautiful capital, Lisbon.


Please see LEFT BAR for ship details and other cruise info.

This 8-day cruise through Southern Spain takes in famous cities such as Seville and Cadiz, before crossing the Portuguese border, bound for one of Europe’s rising star capitals, Lisbon.

After checking in to your cabin, take a coach trip from Seville to nearby Cordoba, where Christian and Muslim influences come together in a most literal way at the Mosque-Cathedral. This is one of the finest examples of Moorish architecture in the world, distinguished by its ‘forest’ of 856 interior columns. There is also a rich Jewish heritage to explore in the labyrinthine streets.

Sail along the Guadalquivir River before your afternoon excursions in Seville. This is Andalusian Spain at its best. You’ll visit the cathedral and Alcazar palace, with the option to upgrade to a guided bike tour. Your next stop is Cadiz, the coastal city almost entirely surrounded by sea. You’ll also visit Sanluca de Barrameda, a popular coastal destination with Spaniards, known for its cuisine and fine sherry. If you wish, you can visit Jerez to see a working ganaderia, where bulls are raised.

Take a tour of the Friary of La Rabida and the Wharf of the Caravels before sailing to Alcoutim, your first port of call in Portugal. You’ll have free time to explore this beautiful corner of the Algarve at your own pace before enjoying your first Portuguese-themed dinner back on board. The following day, sail to Olhao, the Algarve’s largest fishing port, and Evora, an ‘open-air museum’ of a town with cobblestone streets and eye-popping architecture. Arrive in Lisbon in time for dinner.

More and more travellers are clueing in to the charms of Lisbon. The city’s combination of energy and affordability – not to mention year-round glorious weather and architectural beauty – is luring more tourists and expats alike each year. Get ahead of the trend with a guided morning tour, devoting the afternoon to Sao Jorge Castle, which overlooks this beautiful port. Spend the evening at leisure, departing the following day… Or stay longer, as many have chosen to do.
