Discover less-visited islands in the Canaries and Madeira; magnificent Moroccan cities; and storied Spanish and Portuguese ports.

This cultural cruise was so popular in 2019 that we are offering it again in 2020. Encounter the legacy of medieval Moorish culture on both sides of the Strait of Gibraltar, and experience the vibrant contemporary cultures of Morocco and southern Iberia. In the Canaries, discover UNESCO-listed historic towns and lush gardens, then spend a day on Portuguese-accented Madeira. Cruise east to Morocco to explore Marrakesh, Casablanca, and Rabat. Continue to the British territory of Gibraltar, to ascend its legendary rock and see its famous tailless monkeys. In Spain, step ashore in Cádiz for an excursion to Seville. Pause in Sagres and Lagos in Portugal, before concluding in Lisbon.

Our ship, Sea Spirit, is an intimate expedition vessel that underwent a complete refurbishment in 2017. Those with a special interest in horticulture may wish to choose additional visits to remarkable gardens along the way. An optional Lisbon postlude is offered.
