Every vote counts on this very special cruise. Along with your fellow guests,
you’ll choose from a selection of attraction-packed islands and cities in Spain
and Portugal – including Barcelona, Lisbon, Ibiza and Cádiz – to create your
own unique itinerary. Classic Black Watch will deliver it all. Will you ‘steer the
ship’ to familiar favourites, or opt for places you may have never visited before?
The power is in your hands.
Your first vote will be one of two picturesque
Portuguese cities. The pretty capital of Lisbon offers
maritime architectural wonders – the Belém Tower
and Jerónimos Monastery to name a couple – as well
as adorable historic districts and delicious egg tart
pastries to savour. Oporto meanwhile, reached via
Leixões, is renowned for its UNESCO-listed historic
centre, and world-renowned Port wine cellars.
Two of Spain’s Andalusian delights, Cádiz and
Malaga, vie for your attention next. Vote for Cádiz
and you can explore the city’s wonderful old
quarter and perhaps sample traditional tapas –
legend says it originated here – or tour to Jerez,
the ‘sherry capital of the world’. Opt to visit Malaga
and you’ll be presented with an array of diverse
attractions, including the Picasso Museum.
Further afield lies the dramatic hilltop city of Ronda.
A restful Sunday at sea follows, allowing time to
contemplate your next decision.
Both Barcelona, where the countless highlights
include Las Ramblas and Gaudi’s spectacular Sagrada
Familia, still a work in progress; and Tarragona, which
boasts an abundance of ancient sites and ruins,
including the UNESCO-listed Archaeological
Ensemble of Tárraco, are tempting propositions.
Beautiful island scenery is assured the next day, no
matter which destination is chosen to appear next
on your horizon. Make Ibiza your selection and
you’ll discover there’s so much more to this island
than the vibrant nightlife; highlights include a
UNESCO-listed Old Town. Pick Mallorca and Palma’s
picturesque Gothic Cathedral and maze of sunbathed,
centuries-old streets await your exploration.
Your penultimate call will be the attraction-packed
city of Cartagena, chock-full of Roman architecture,
or beautiful Alicante, if you’d prefer to unwind on
long, sandy beaches.
To round it all off, this unique adventure brings
you to the Galicia region of Northern Spain.
There’s a choice between Vigo – renowned for
its sun, scenery and sumptuous seafood – and
laidback La Coruña, the gateway to the magnificent
city of Santiago de Compostela.
