WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

Authentic Andalusia 20th October 2017 • 14 nights • Sails from Southampton • Braemar • CRUISE ID: M1726 There’s no doubt cruising with Fred. is the best way to uncover the breathtaking region at the southern tip of Spain: with an overnight stay in seductive Seville and calls into three other diverse destinations, you can immerse yourself into Andalusian cultures and traditions. Get set for sherry, equestrian art, tapas, flamenco, spectacular scenery and Moorish Almería, Spain Almería’s distinctive character derives from its volcanic surroundings, six-towered cathedral and whitewashed, Moorish-style houses that are overlooked by the historic walled fortress of Alcazaba. From here, you can tour to ‘Oasys Mini Hollywood’, the desert setting for spaghetti westerns such as For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). Gibraltar Resolutely British for nearly 300 years, Gibraltar’s unique history and setting unites the oddly familiar – from helmeted police to Marks & Spencer – with an extrovert Mediterranean mood. Take a trip to see the Barbary Apes, Alameda Botanical Gardens or Garrison Library, tour to the Rock of Gibraltar, or hop on a cable car and enjoy grandstand views of nearby Spain and Africa. Cruising Guadalquivir River Glide smoothly into the heart of Seville along the Guadalquivir, one of the longest rivers in Spain. Fortunately, Braemar is one of the largest ships that can make the transit up this tidally-restricted river – others have to stop at coastal Cádiz, a 90-minute bus ride away from the city. From only £1,499 per person architectural wonders galore. Cádiz, Spain Historic Cádiz hugs Andalusia’s sunlit Atlantic coast. Top attractions include the Old Town, Cathedral and Archaeological Museum, plus the Plaza de España, which is home to the iconic Monument to the Constitution of 1812. Cádiz is also the starting point for tours to the city of Jerez – the sherry capital of the world – where you can visit the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and enjoy a special performance demonstrating the art of dressage. Malaga, Spain Malaga is overflowing with aesthetic pleasures, such as the Moorish Alcazaba Fortress and the ‘mile of art’, which fittingly includes the Picasso Museum as the famous artist was born here. Alternatively, try traditional Spanish tapas; head to Marbella and relax on the stunning beaches; tour to Granada for the striking Alhambra Palace; or take a trip to the historic, mountainous city of Ronda.
