See where the Spanish Armada set sail from in La Coruna, perhaps stroll through elegant squares and the wonderful Botanical Gardens in Cadiz, or take the cable car up the Rock of Gibraltar to discover views all the way to Morocco's Atlas Mountains. Across the Strait and a little way along Morocco's Atlantic coast you'll find Casablanca, forever associated with Bogart and Bacall. Head to the beach, explore the medina or perhaps join an unforgettable shore excursion to Marrakesh.

As Magellan cruises south from Liverpool, and back, you'll have the chance to make the most of Magellan's excellent restaurants, bars and other distractions, and to visit two very different but equally enchanting capitals - Ireland's lively, lovely Dublin and Portugal's pretty, sun-soaked Lisbon.
