Spain, Portugal & Morocco
Day 1 Liverpool
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Liverpool. Embark Black Watch (3.5-star) in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Days 2-4 At sea
As we sail to Gibraltar, you have three days to do as much (or as little) as you wish. Maybe start your day off with a brisk walk around the deck. Or opt for a yoga class. Spend the afternoon learning a craft, or perfecting your golf swing. After your choice of dinner, you can catch a show or dance into the night.
Day 5 Gibraltar
Perched on Spain’s coast, yet inherently British, Gibraltar has an unusual mix of characteristics that make it rather special. Walk around the small town and you’ll spot classic British shops and red post boxes. Climb up the Rock and you’ll find beautiful St Michael’s Cave and troops of cheeky Barbary Apes. Or shelter from the sun on a tour of the Great Siege Tunnels, which stretch for miles within the Rock.
Day 6 Casablanca, Morocco
The former French post of Casablanca still holds a southern European feel; but head to the medina and Old City and you’ll be transported to a different world. The bustling streets are great for exploring. The breathtaking Hassan II Mosque is a popular highlight, with the world’s tallest minaret at 210m, however with the ability to accommodate over 25,000 worshippers inside the temple alone, it won’t feel overcrowded.
Day 7 Cádiz, Spain
Cádiz is one of Europe's most ancient cities, an ensemble of palm trees, lookout towers and weathered old buildings promising a plethora of authentic sights and experiences. The fascinating Old Town district features huge stone walls from the 1500s. It’s home to a wealth of historic highlights, including the beautifully crafted 18th century Cádiz Cathedral. Cádiz is also the gateway to the stunning city of Seville, with its maze of courtyards, atmosphere old quarters and ornate churches and cathedrals; and Jerez, ‘sherry capital of the world’.
Day 8 Lisbon, Portugal
Cobbled alleyways, pastel-coloured buildings, ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals stretch across the hills of Portugal’s capital. Lisbon’s fascinating museums include the National Coach Museum, the Carmo Archaeological Museum, the National Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, filled with hundreds of Egyptian, Greco-Roman, Islamic and Armenian exhibits.
Day 9 Leixões (for Porto)
A short journey from Leixões takes you into the heart of Porto. Head to the historic Ribeira District and explore the narrow, cobbled lanes which wind their way between discreet temples and shops offering traditional blue-painted tiles; and down to the River Douro, where the port wine cellars flag their presence in great neon lights. Dominating the centre of the city is the fortress-like cathedral, which is worth visiting for the views alone.
Days 10-11 At sea
As we sail home you may want to rest after all your sightseeing. If you’re still full of energy, there‘s lots to fill your time - from quizzes, games and music recitals to walks on deck and dance classes. And of course there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy all the tasty food options.
