Cruise aboard the Deluxe m.v. Tere Moana
Sail the ancient trade routes of Phoenician, Roman and Moor mariners during this comprehensive itinerary and Small Ship cruise to the coastal jewels of the Iberian Peninsula during the best time of year.
This unique offering features the Five-Star m.v. Tere Moana, relaunching in 2013 under new ownership following a complete multimillion-dollar refurbishment. A sophisticated and authentic Small Ship carrying only 90 passengers allows for port calls otherwise inaccessible to larger vessels, including an exclusive opportunity and highlight to cruise up Spain's legendary and scenic Guadalquivir River into the heart of Seville.
En route from Lisbon to Barcelona, visit four UNESCO World Heritage sites and Portugal's lesser-traveled Algarve region, and stand on Gibraltar's "Top of the Rock" to see the Pillars of Hercules spanning the scenic Strait of Gibraltar. Visit the regal city of Granada. Call on two of the enchanting Balearic Islands—Ibiza and Palma de Mallorca. See the magnificent Alhambra Palace and the spectacular sights that inspired works by Picasso and Gaudí. Enjoy the melancholy rhythms of fado music and the joyful beat of flamenco. Lectures by onboard Study Leaders enlighten you with the history, legends and modern life of these dramatic cities and villages. There are attractive Lisbon Pre-Cruise and Barcelona Post-Cruise options to further complement your itinerary.
We encourage you to book now while space is available.
