Day 1
Bristol Avonmouth, UK, England

Bristol is the UK’s eighth most populous city and is home to a number of attractions and a unique culture. The city’s cruise terminal provides a gateway to the world, but those travelling from further afield to get to Bristol should definitely take the time to fully appreciate the plethora of interesting sights and landmarks. The Old City is home to a network of cobbled streets which will guide you to a range of fascinating medieval buildings. The harbour reflects the maritime tradition of Bristol, with the first iron-hulled, steam-powered passenger liner – Brunel’s ss Great Britain – beautifully preserved in dry-dock.

Day 4
Lisbon, Portugal

Built on seven hills, the Portuguese capital of Lisbon shares a similar status to the Italian city of Rome and the Turkish city of Istanbul. This vibrant and cultural city has much to offer to the discerning visitor, with many beautiful gardens, stunning architectural wonders, and cultural relics such as the traditional trams which have operated in Lisbon since the 1930’s. Head to Cine Theatro Gymnasium if you get the chance, as this is where you will be able to experience a daily performance of Fado – a distinctive Portuguese style of music that has gained UNESCO World Heritage status.

Day 5
Portimao, Portugal

Portimao is the Algarve’s second largest city and is renowned among tourists for offering fabulous beaches and some of Europe’s finest seafood. The city provides a great point of access for the well-known beach of Praia da Rocha – meaning “Rocky Beach”.

Day 6
Gibraltar, Gibraltar

Gibraltar is an overseas territory of the UK that is located to the south of mainland Spain, with a distance of only nine miles between the territory and the northernmost point of Morocco. On a clear day, it is even possible to see the African continent from the higher points of the iconic rock. In addition to the impressive views, this rock is also home to a number of Barbary Macaques, while the underground layers are home to an impressive network of tunnels and caves.

Day 7
Cadiz, Spain

The Spanish city of Cadiz sits in an enviable position on a peninsula on the southwestern coast of Spain. It is almost entirely surrounded by water, which has paved the way for some excellent urban beaches. Cadiz is thought to be one of the oldest cities in Western Europe, having been discovered by Phoenician sailors around 3,000 years ago and it has always played a significant role as a seaport and trading post. During the 18th century, Spain’s galleons explored the world from Cadiz and many of the city’s historic look-out towers and weathered old buildings remain today. The city is home to some magnificent architecture including the Cathedral and churches of Santa Cruz and San Felipe Neri. It is here that Spain defied Napoleon’s siege and established a provisional government with its own liberal constitution. Cadiz provides an ideal point of access for the Guadalquivir River and the Doñana National Park.

La Coruna, Spain

Situated in the Galicia region of north-west Spain, the city of La Coruña – also known as A Coruña – has become a centre for tourism. The city receives in excess of 60 cruise ship visits per year and, upon arrival, it is easy to understand why. A charming city square blends with relics such as the City Hall and a statue of the local heroine, Maria Pita. Many come to La Coruña, however, for its range of famed golden beaches which include Orzan and Riazor – both of which are situated in the heart of the city and are bordered by the promenade.
