Enjoy a Mediterranean adventure as we sail between Iberian cities and sun-soaked islands. We’ll begin in Málaga, gateway to Moorish Andalucia, before tracing a route up the coast to historic Cartagena. We move on to the Balearics, exploring the beach towns and sleepy villages of Ibiza and Menorca, then cruise west to Corsica and Sardinia. After discovering their charms, we’ll about-turn, journeying back to Southampton via the fantastic waterside cities of Palma, Cádiz and Lisbon.
