About

Recommended for:
Ocean cruise

Board the Riviera in Barcelona to sail to Valencia, where an opera house and oceanographic park vie for attention, and the century-old wine cellars in Requena are well worth the time on shore. The baroque charms of Alicante are next, followed by the breathtaking Alhambra in Andalucia and the atmospheric Old Town in Malaga. Then, it’s on to Seville and the chance to visit nearby Cádiz, from where legendary explorers set sail, or to sample sherry in its spiritual home of Jerez. Almeira and Cartagena, both charming stops with lovely beaches lead on to the laid-back spirit of Ibiza and Mallorca’s artistic past. Finally, to Palamos on the Costa Brava, full of fishing and art lore, before flying home from the Catalan capital.
