Itinerary

 

Date Port Arrival Departure
 
May 28, Monday
Marseille, France »   6 pm
 
The queen of the Côte d'Azur, Marseille is France's oldest city and one of the Mediterranean's premier ports. Amid the big-city bustle, the old port is a quaint landscape of historic charm: colorful fishing boats sail past the imposing Fort Saint-Jean, narrow streets wander among ancient churches and cobbled squares, while the venerable Basilica overlooks the scene from the hilltop above.
 
May 29, Tuesday
Barcelona, Spain » 8 am 10 pm
 
Barcelona, capital of Catalonia, is a celebration of history and heir to Greek, Phoenician, Roman, Carthaginian, Gothic and Arab cultural legacies. Since it is nearly as close to Rome, Geneva and Munich as it is to Madrid, Barcelona has long been the Spanish link to Western Europe. It was the home of Picasso, Miró, Dali, Casals and Gaudí and has been described as a Mediterranean Manhattan, a cosmopolitan experimental center for political ideas and artistic movements. In addition to its abundance of artistic and architectural treasures, Barcelona serves as the gateway to one of the world's most impressive mountainside enclaves at Montserrat. Discover the secret legends of the Black Virgin and the alluring chants of monastic life high atop the Catalonian plains. Barcelona's ancient city walls and the narrow crooked streets of the town's old section are laid out for your discovery. You will find that Barcelona has something for everybody.

May 31, Thursday
Gibraltar, United Kingdom » 8 am 12 n
 
Like a crouching lion, the Rock of Gibraltar's imposing presence supports the legend that it is one of the two Pillars of Hercules. Dramatically soaring to almost 1,400 feet, it boasts one of the world's most recognizable silhouettes. Over 140 caves have been discovered within its limestone mass. Although linked by land to Spain, the self-governing British colony of Gibraltar maintains a strong allegiance to Britain. Shop the compact commercial center for tax-free treats, or perch atop the summit for thrilling views encompassing Europe and Africa.
 
Jun 1, Friday
Lisbon, Portugal » 9 am 6 pm
 
Cosmopolitan Lisbon was the center of the world's last great colonial empire. Today the city nostalgically reveres its imperial past while adapting to Portugal's role as a member of the European Economic Community. Although located on the Atlantic coast, Lisbon has the soul of a Mediterranean city with Moorish castles, pastel and white buildings, orange-tiled roofs and luminous blue skies. Set amid the hills and valleys of the northern shore of the River Tagus, it is one of the loveliest capitals in the world.
 
Jun 2, Saturday
Oporto/Leixoes, Portugal » 8 am 1 pm
 

Ideally placed where the Douro River meets the Atlantic, Oporto brings together the best of Portugal: warm sunshine, a relaxed riverside setting, grand churches, winding medieval streets, houses garnished with wrought iron, courtyards filled with geraniums.

Perhaps what Oporto is most famous for, however, is its port wine. Crafted in the neighboring Vila Nova da Gaia district, ports from all over the region can be sampled in the lodges just across the river or at Solar Vinho do Porto, an Oporto tasting room housed in a gracious, rose-clad villa. After your wine tasting, wander through historic Ribeira, the recently restored riverside district and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Jun 4, Monday Honfleur, France » 4:30 am 11 pm
 
Honfleur's unique character and atmosphere has inspired painters, writers and musicians over the ages. Nestled at the mouth of the Seine River, this small fishing port is renowned for the glorious voyages of discovery by its 17th century mariners, and has blossomed into one of Normandy's most appealing harbors.

Honfleur became a center of artistic activity in the 19th century. Eugène Boudin, the painter of stirring seascapes, was born here in 1824 and artists such as Courbet, Sisley, Pissarro, Renoir and Cèzanne have visited Honfleur.

Preserved from World War II's destruction, this quaint old Norman town has managed to retain its charm of yesteryear. The "Old Dock," narrow jetty houses, the museums and monuments are witness to a rich heritage of art and history.

Note: Arrival and departure times for this port will depend on tidal restrictions.
 
Jun 5, Tuesday
Cherbourg, France » 7 am 11 pm
 

Occupying a strategic position between La Hague and Vale de Saire, Cherbourg has long been a territory disputed between the English and the French. As history reveals, the English and French have tussled over a great number of things, ranging from tracts of land to sporting events. History also tells of the two countries coming together, along with the rest of the free world, to defend the Continent against the Nazis. For all the defensive efforts by the Allies, German forces overtook Cherbourg in June, 1940, laying waste to much of the city’s harbor. After the war, the port was rebuilt to become one of the busiest in the world. Today, Cherbourg is a cultural and aesthetic treasure, retaining its appeal not only for its prime location but also for its open-air markets, sparkling waterfront, fine museums and interesting boutiques.

 
Jun 6, Wednesday
Guernsey/St. Peter Port, Channel Islands » 7:30 am 1 pm
 
Charming Guernsey, a mere 25 square miles in size, offers a host of enticing visitor attractions. Although geographically closer to France, it has remained staunchly British through the ages. Today, its diverse culture reflects the best of both worlds. Pastel-colored houses rise layer upon layer behind St. Peter Port, the island's picturesque main town. Beyond, you discover a wealth of activities centering around goldsmiths, silversmiths, wood carvers and clockmakers. Important: Please Read before Booking the Following Tours: Although the best available equipment has been requested, guests should be aware that transport may not be of international standard. Motor coaches are not air-conditioned. Your understanding is appreciated. Guernsey Island Introduction and Goldsmith's Workshop
