Itinerary

Description

Take advantage of some spring sunshine as Marco Polo sails around the Iberian Peninsula and to fascinating Morocco. Along the way you’ll step ashore in wonderful historic cities with a wealth of grand architecture to discover. The highlight of this cruise is likely to be the chance to visit Seville during the famous ‘Feria de Abril’ fiesta. Combine all this with some great shopping and a chance to relax on board Marco Polo, and you have a cruise holiday to tempt you.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 – Home pickup & embarkation in Bristol Avonmouth / Days 2 & 3 – At Sea
A uniformed chauffeur will collect you from home for your comfortable journey in a top specification car so you can begin your holiday in style. On arrival at Bristol Avonmouth Cruise Terminal, we board the Marco Polo and begin our journey, taking time to relax in our cabins or on deck and enjoying the use of the ship’s range of leisure facilities.

Day 4 – Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon, Portugal’s capital city, is home to the magnificent Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Tower, 25th April Bridge and Monument of the Discoveries. Wander through the maze of narrow streets in the delightful Alfama district and ride one of the famous old trams.

Day 5 – At Sea / Day 6 – Gibraltar
After a day at sea we arrive in Gibraltar, a renowned headland in the Mediterranean Sea. In ancient times known as the Pillars of Hercules with its African counterpart, Mt Abyla, the Rock has remained under British rule for the last 300 years, despite being connected to Spain. A towering 1,400ft outcrop that separates the Mediterranean from the Atlantic, Gibraltar was named Jebel al-Tarik by the Moorish General Tarik who landed there in 711 AD. See the famous Barbary apes that occupy the island as well as St Michael’s Cave and the Siege Tunnels or admire the view to Africa from a cable car.

Day 7 – Casablanca for Marrakech, Morocco
Located on the western coast of Africa, cosmopolitan Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city with a thriving tourism trade. Blending the modern world with the ancient, Casablanca can be accurately described as a cultural melting pot with clear African, Arabic and European influences. The city’s many parks, fountains and recognisably Art Deco flourishes are all courtesy of the French Protectorate who made the city their administrative centre in the early part of the 20th century.

Highlights include the impressive Hassan II Mosque, the ornate Mauresque architecture and gleaming white 1930s buildings immortalised in the classic film starring Humphrey Bogart.


Days 8 & 9 – Cádiz for Seville, Spain
The oldest continuously populated city in Spain, Cádiz is a unique ocean port in south west Spain that has been inhabited for the last 3,000 years. Located on a peninsula jutting into the Gulf of Cádiz, the city is surrounded almost entirely by water and thanks to its historical trade links, it has many foreign influences that are still visible today. Narrow cobbled streets, small squares and weather-beaten buildings dating back to the Moors make the old city a charming place to explore with look-out towers used by merchants to spot returning trade ships scattered along the skyline.

Day 10 – At Sea / Day 11 – Leixões for Oporto, Portugal
After a day at leisure enjoying the ship’s facilities, we arrive in Leixões. Situated just north of the mouth of the River Douro, Leixões is one of Portugal’s major seaports and a gateway to Oporto. Optional excursions feature the country’s second city that is known throughout the world as the home of the famous port wine. A boat trip on the River Douro gives a different view of the city where dark buildings seem to be stacked one on another along the narrow, labyrinthine streets. In Oporto’s São Bento Station traditional tile panels depict the history of Portugal. Oporto is home to the Museum of the Tram giving insight into this traditional and often preferred mode of transport.

Day 12 – At Sea / Day 13 – Cobh for Cork, Ireland
After a day at sea we arrive in Cobh. Lying at the mouth of the River Lee, Cobh has one of the best natural harbours in the world. Known as Queenstown until 1922, it was the departure point for thousands of Irish emigrants to America and the last port of call of the Titanic. The ‘Queenstown Story’ is a wonderful exhibition telling of this rich maritime history. From Cobh’s waterfront, streets lined with brightly coloured houses climb the steep slope of a hill, which is crowned with the imposing St Coleman’s Cathedral. A charming little town, Cobh is a gateway to the city of Cork and excursions to Ireland’s legendary Blarney Castle.

Day 14 – Disembarkation in Bristol Avonmouth
We arrive back in Bristol Avonmouth where we disembark and are met by our chauffeur for the journey home – a luxurious and stress-free way to end your holiday.
