Day 1Port of Call MalagaDeparture 8:00pm

Overview

Malaga is the major coastal city of Andalucia and is a genuine and typical Andaluz city with a gritty individualism untouched by tourism and, to a large extent, the passage of time. The Moors occupied the city until the mid fifteenth century, after which it grew to become one of the foremost merchant centres in the entire Iberian Peninsula. This illustrious past has left its imprint on the historic centre, particularly around La Alcazaba, a fortress which dates back to 1065 and is now a fascinating archaeological museum. Also worth a visit is the nearby castle which was rebuilt by the Moors and is today a traditional parador (state hotel) with superb panoramic views. During the nineteenth century, Malaga was a popular winter resort for the wealthy famed for its elegance and sophistication. The impressive park on Calle Alameda dates back to this era and is recognised as being one of the mostcelebrated botanical collections in Europe. During the winter, open air concerts are held here every Sunday which makes a refreshing change from the bucket and spade scenario on the coast. Pablo Picasso is the city’s famous son (not counting Antonio Banderas of course!) and there are several galleries showing his work, including the 16th century Museum of Fine Arts, adjacent to the Cathedral His birthplace in Plaza Merced is today an archive of his life and works and open tothe public; the entrance is absolutely free (so are all the services: Documentation Centre, exhibitions, museum, video projections...) Málaga's main theatre is the "Theatro Cervantes" where Antonio Banderas once trod the boards. He still visits. As well as being a cultural centre, Malaga is also a great place to eat out. The Malaguen´os love their food and the bars and restaurants here are where the real social life takes place. The choice in unlimited and, on the whole, reasonable with some bars offering a menu of the day with bread and wine for as little as 700 pesetas. Tapas, small portions of many different dishes is an Andalusian tradition and a wonderfully inexpensive way to try a variety of local food. The best known local fare in Malaga is pescaito frito, an assortment of fried fish, including small sardines and red mullet, best washed down with a glass of ice cold fino at one of the many old fashioned bodegas in town. But it is El Palo, to the east of the city which is a typical fisherman’s village and the place to go if you want that veritable ‘catch of the day’ freshness. In the centre try a tapas and a glass of Malaga wine at Malaga's oldest tapas bar called "Antigua Casa de la Guardia". Keep to the north side of the Alameda and find no. 16. Malaga is always closed for the siesta period, so this is a perfect time for a long relaxing lunch. These days, Malaga prides itself on being a modern city with the heart of commerce dominated by Calle Larios which is the local Bond Street equivalent. This is the recommended place to start exploring the city as it is surrounded by attractive small streets and plazas, as well as the magnificent cathedral (Renaissance cathedral with a Baroque façade and choir by Pedro de Mena) which offers daily guided tours. Garden lovers won't be disappointed in Malaga either. In the centre of the city is the beautiful Alameda Gardens, and just outside on the way to Antequera one finds the extensive Jardines de la Concepcion. Málaga airport is of course on of the major airports in Spain due to the number of tourist arrivals on charter flights from Northern Europe using Malaga airport as a gateway to the Costa del Sol.

Day 2Port of Call Cadiz Arrival 7:00amDeparture 4:00pm

Overview

The city of Cadiz, which practically accounts for the whole of the municipal area, lies to the east of the bay of the same name, in an area which could be described as half island, half peninsula, connected to the mainland by a slender, sandy strip. Its situation is responsible for its obvious maritime tendencies, and it has been totally dedicated to seafaring pursuits since its foundation. The Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs all passed through what is believed to be the western world’s oldest city, and it was here that Spain’s first democratic Constitution was drawn up. Despite its essentially urban nature, it also boasts areas of natural interest, such as the beaches of La Cortadura and El Chato, as well as Santibanez Mud Flats, which are part of Cadiz Bay Natural Park. The city, popularly known as “La Tacita de Plata” (The Silver Cup), has an unmistakable marine flavour, and its people are famous for their good humour and hospitality, as witnessed by the famous carnival; it boasts monuments of great interest, such as the Cathedral, the city walls, Holy Cross Parish Church, the Genoese Park, Puerta de la Caleta, etc. All places of indubitable charm, to which we must add the city’s cuisine and beaches, famous for their beauty, such as La Caleta, Santa Maria del Mar and La Victoria. History This legendary city was founded by the Phoenicians in 1100, although the oldest archaeological remains date back to around 800 B.C. Mythology links its foundation with Hercules and the legendary Tartessia. The Phoenicians called the city Gadir, meaning “closed area”. They built a commercial factory and a temple in honour of the god Melkart In 206 B.C. it was joined with Rome as an allied city under the name Gades. This was the start of one of the most prosperous periods in Cadiz’s history, and it became one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire. In the Imperial age, it was known as “Augusta Urbs Julia Gaditana”. Its inhabitants were soon granted Roman citizenship. When the Moslem invasions began in the 8th century, it provided the armies with significant support by facilitating their passage, though it soon suffered a decline in importance which would prevail until the Christian conquest and re-settlement at the hands of Alfonso X, known as The Wise, between 1260 and 1262. During the 15th century, the city’s economic activity was based essentially on sea commerce, particularly in North Africa. In 1493, the Catholic Monarchs made Cadiz Crown property; it had belonged to the Ponce de Leon estate since 1470. With the discovery of America, Cadiz’s rise to greatness began, culminating in the 18th century. Its natural conditions meant that whenever it was impossible for ships to berth in Seville, they could do so in Cadiz. In 1717, Seville’s Contracting House was moved to Cadiz, the monopoly of American trade travelling with it; however, this situation was short-lived, as the concession to trade with the New World was extended to twelve ports in 1778. The town centre was consolidated in the 18th and 19th centuries, when urban renovation was carried out and most of the monuments and buildings that we know today were built. La Isla del Leon, now San Fernando, was the setting for the earliest meetings of the famous Cadiz Cortes, general constituent assemblies set up to provide Spain with a Constitution during the war of independence. Fleeing from the French, the Government took refuge near Cadiz, the only stronghold that the French were unable to capture during the whole of the war. Between 1810 and 1811, Government assemblies took place in La Isla de Leon Theatre; in February 1811, the proximity of Napoleon’s troops forced them to move to San Felipe de Neri Church in Cadiz, returning once more to La Isla de Leon before finally making their definitive journey back to Madrid in 1813. After the war, the city continued at the vanguard of liberalism, with its support for Riego in 1820 and its leading role in the face of the French invasion in 1823. In a similar vein, Cadiz was at the forefront of the 1868 uprising. At the end of the 19th century, the city’s economic decline began. A series of events including the loss of the colonial market, culminating in the 1898 Disaster, and the African War, among others, ushered in a crisis that was to have grave consequences.

Day 3Port of Call Lisbon Arrival 7:00amDeparture 9:00pm

Overview

Lisbon is Portugal’s hilly, coastal capital city. From imposing São Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old city’s pastel-colored buildings, Tagus Estuary and Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Nearby, the National Azulejo Museum displays 5 centuries of decorative ceramic tiles. Just outside Lisbon is a string of Atlantic beaches, from Cascais to Estoril.

Day 4 Cruising
Day 5Port of Call Funchal Arrival 7:00amDeparture 4:00pm

Overview

Funchal city is the capital and owes its name to the plant called "funcho". This plant existed in abundance in this area. Sweets are still made from this plant today. The category of city was granted by King Manuel I, on 21 August, 1508. It's a city of white rows of houses that climb up the hills, like an amphitheatre around a beautiful bay of blue sea. This architectonic distribution, due to the region's rugged and high terrain, covers itself with special beauty to bring in the New Year, since it makes it possible to put on a fireworks display of rare beauty and present a unique festive illumination for the season. Funchal's port is the entry door for many cruise ships as well as for the loading and unloading of goods shipped by sea. The city is divided into three principal areas: on the west side, we have the tourist area where we find most of the hotels; on the east side, the so-called "Zona Velha" or "Cidade Velha" (Old Zone or Old Town), where old constructions predominate, some of them having been transformed into typical restaurants; and the central part, where a great part of the commerce and characteristic monuments are found.

Day 6Port of Call Santa Cruz de Tenerife Arrival 8:00amDeparture 11:59pm

Overview

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a port city on the island of Tenerife, in Spain’s Canary Islands. Well-preserved buildings in its old town include the colonial Church of the Immaculate Conception. The 1700s Palacio de Carta has baroque and neoclassical features. In the Old Civil Hospital, the Museum of Nature and Man has interactive displays on the islands. The city’s squares include the central Plaza de España.

Day 7Port of Call Las Palmas Arrival 7:00amDeparture 11:00pm

Overview

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with its 400,000 inhabitants is a vibrant modern city which also has a contrasting historical centre with lovely old buildings and a well-developed tourist infrastructure to accommodate the most demanding visitor. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has always been an important junction and commercial centre on the routes between Europe, Africa and America. This international vocation has made it the ideal spot for holding meetings both at national and international level. With good communications by air and sea and 20 kilometers away from the city, its airport has daily links to the main cities in Europe and America. The city's endowment of cultural and leisure activities and the possibility to attend exhibitions, lectures, theatre and concerts all the year round, provide a further incentive to choose this city, giving whatever event may be organised here even greater guarantee of success. It is worth noting that according to the North American Travel Association journal, the capital of Gran Canaria has the best climate in the world, with an annual average temperature of 23ºC making possible the bath in its beaches at any time of the year.

Day 8Port of Call Puerto del Rosario Arrival 7:00amDeparture 8:00pm

Overview

Puerto del Rosario emerged at the end of the 18th century as a small cattle-raising centre on the current bay. The city, known then as Puerto de Cabras, was transformed in the middle of the 18th century into a prosperous commercial port, a fact which favoured it being declared capital of Fuerteventura in 1860, a status which until then was held by Betancuria. A city which is excellently connected by sea and air, Puerto del Rosario currently provides the chief port of access to the island, as well offering a good many tourist attractions, such as mild temperatures year-round and the beautiful beaches which cover its coastline. Beaches such as Puerto Lajas, Jarugo and Playa Blanca, this last one equipped with modern infrastructure which includes hotels, restaurants, shops and sports facilities. Any of these places has optimum conditions for surfing, windsurfing or sailing, not forgetting underwater sports such as scuba diving or spear fishing. Strolling through the historic quarter of Puerto del Rosario, the visitor will find a bright collection of whitewashed streets which house outstanding examples of architecture, such as the church of Nuestra Sen´ora del Rosario, or the House- Museum of Miguel de Unamuno, located in a 19th century house. Photographs, furniture from the 20th century and other effects from the age make for an interesting tour of these premises, at which the Spanish writer lodged. Something else to attract tourists is located on the Promenade, converted into a genuine open-air gallery thanks to the sculptures of snails by the Canary Islands sculptor Juan Bordes.

Something else to attract tourists is located on the Promenade, converted into a genuine open-air gallery thanks to the sculptures of snails by the Canary Islands sculptor Juan Bordes. Leaving the capital behind, Fuerteventura has many surprises in store for us. The dryness of its earth has given rise to the formation of ravines, while along the coast stretch heavenly beaches of fine sand and incredible dunes beside a sea of turquoise water. The sea is precisely one of the greatest attractions the island offers, not only because of the fascinating biological diversity hidden in the sea depths, but also because it is one of the best places in the world to do sail sports and above all windsurfing, a sport which each year attracts thousand of fans and professionals to the place. The island of Fuerteventura has several tourist centres. At the northern end we can visit Corralejo, a town which has an extensive beach of dunes. In the centre, only a few kilometres from the capital, is Caleta de Fustes. Further south, on the Jandía peninsula, is the chief tourist infrastructure on the island, with centres such as Costa Calma, located next to the beach of Sotavento, and Morro Jable. Those who wish to can take up windsurfing and other water sports such as surfing or scuba diving in any of the schools which exist in these places. The sparse population of the island has allowed the conservation of almost unspoilt ecosystems such as the Corralejo Nature Reserve, which occupies the northeastern strip of the island and is outstanding because of its imposing coastal dunes. Opposite is the Islote de Lobos Nature Reserve, with a valuable habitat in which native species of flowers grow. Lastly, in the south is the Jandía Nature Reserve, an area which is home to abundant examples of the islands' fauna and flora. The gastronomy of the islands is based both on produce of the land and on excellent fresh fish provided by its coastline. Species such as “vieja” (a local fish), horse mackerel or sama (similar to sea bream) are usually served fried or roast, although salted fish is also traditional. Outstanding in the meat department is roast baifo (kid) and roasted or marinated pork. Not forgetting recipes for other traditional Canary Islands specialities, such as Canary Islands stew and papas arrugadas (potatoes boiled in their jackets) with mojos (typical sauces). Fuerteventura cheese, made from goat's milk, enjoys much acclaim and has its own Designation of Origin standard. The only wines in the province are produced in neighbouring Lanzarote, outstanding among whose Designation of Origin standard is the magnificent produce of the Malvasía variety, with aromatic whites and delicious sweet wines.

Day 9Port of Call Arrecife Arrival 7:00amDeparture 8:00pm

Overview

Arrecife was once just a port - that of Teguise. There were two main fortresses, San Gabriel and San José with a third - Castillo de San Gabriel - located on a small island in front of Arrecife. The third fort was connected to the main one by a drawbridge. It was from these forts that the islanders tried (unsucessfully in the end) to defend themselves against pirate attacks. A fourth castle, that of Castillo de San Juan, is home to the city's Museum of Contemporary Art. One of the museum's main attractions is the work of Cesar Manrique. Today, Arrecife is the island's capital. Of the 90,000 residents on Lanzarote, half reside in Arrecife. Along the beach-front there's a wide, palm-lined promenade. The wide, main street through the city is Léon y Castillo and most of the remaining streets of the city are narrow and form part of the one-way system. The Gran Hotel in Arrecife is the only high-rise building on the island. Since its construction, laws have been passed preventing any further high rises and the hotel itself, closed down and currently unused. Leon y Castillo is the main shopping street and as you walk along away from the seafront, head to the right as you come to the end of this street and enjoy the view over El Charco. Here's a strange tip for you; if you're down by the fishing docks when the fisherman return (bearing in mind they can often be out for up to three weeks at a time) and have a plastic bag with you, the generous fisherman are known for giving away samples of their sardine catch. Barbecued sardines are a local favourate.

Day 10 Cruising
Day 11Port of Call Gibraltar Arrival 10:00amDeparture 8:00pm

Overview

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory and headland, on Spain's south coast. It’s dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, a 426m-high limestone ridge. First settled by the Moors in the Middle Ages and later ruled by Spain, the outpost was ceded to the British in 1713. Layers of fortifications include the remains of a 14th-century Moorish Castle and the 18th century Great Siege Tunnels, which were expanded in WWII.
