Detailed Port Descriptions

Day 1     Lisbon, Portugal

 One of the oldest cities in the world, Lisbon is rich in architecture and criss-crossed by monument-studded grand boulevards. Must-sees include the church of Igreja de Sao Vicente de Fora, which dates back to the 12th century; Musee Calouste Gulbenkian, one of Europe’s leading fine arts museums; and Torre de Belém, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most famous monuments in Portugal. 

Day 2     Porto (Leixoes), Portugal

 At the mouth of the Rio Douro lies the city of Porto, known mostly for its port wine trade. With origins dating back to the 5th century, there is plenty to see in this town. Stroll the Ribeira neighborhood along the river, explore the Cathedral area, or tour the port lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia across the river. Savoring a taste of tawny port, tripe, and seafood while here is highly recommended. 

Day 3     At Sea

 Spend the day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea. Indulge in a treatment at Sanctum Spa, stay ship shape with a class at our fitness center, or lounge the day away on our sunny pool deck. In the evening, savor inspired Italian cuisine at Aqualina, or relish in a classic steakhouse experience at Prime C. Plus, you’ll find plenty of exciting evening entertainment, from thrilling shows at Cabaret Lounge to intimate performances in the Living Room. 

Day 4     Bilbao, Spain

 Home to a cultural and architectural renaissance, Bilbao's factories and ports have been transformed into spectacular urban projects. The ultra-modern Guggenheim Museum is a definite standout, and this gem in Basque country is brimming with fine wines, exceptional cuisine, and a vibrant spirit. 

Day 5-7    Bordeaux, France

 Wine lovers will love Bordeaux. It's the industry that fuels the region, and has financed some spectacular chateaux. Pay a visit to Pauillac, Sauternes, Margaux, and Saint-Emilion to learn wine production, and of course sample as glass or two. Explore over 25 acres of spectacular English gardens in the heart of the city at Jardin Public and discover underground wonder in Saint Emilion. 

Day 8-9    Nantes, France

 Known as a city of reinvention, Nantes shines with Gothic architecture and quirky, cool art installations. It’s the ideal blend of modern and medieval, where castles and cathedrals meet magical mechanical animals and funky restaurants and galleries. Shop the elegant boutiques of Passage Pommeraye, and set out on a river cruise to discover the chateaus and vineyards of the breathtaking Loire Valley. 

Day 10    At Sea

 

Day 11    St. Peter Port, Channel Islands

 Experience the best of England and France in Guernsey. Take in postcard-worthy views of brightly colored houses, idyllic gardens, and cliffside paths from St. Peter Port. When the sightseeing is over, stop at one of the many bistros for an unforgettable meal. Then, spend some time shopping in the up-and-coming boutiques for the perfect souvenir. 

Day 12    Southampton, England

 It was the departure point for the Mayflower in 1620, and for the ill-fated Titanic in 1912.
