Cruising Spain, Portugal and Morocco
Cruise Spain and Portugal’s sultry south, with a taste of Tangier, on this eclectic Peregrine adventure cruise.
Portugal and Spain’s lesser travelled southern reaches are full of surprises, and this trip takes the adventure a step further – to Morocco. Join Peregrine on the stylish Harmony G and discover the wonders of this coast. Begin in Malaga and sail to Puerto Banas to explore Granada, famous for its unique cuisine and incredible architecture. Sail on to Morocco for a tour of Tangier’s medina and taste of mint tea. Voyage on to Cadiz, starting point for trips to joyous Seville, and Jerez de la Frontera, a place to appreciate Moorish marvels and fine sherry. Continue to Huelva to learn Columbus' history there, and for an ocean dip. Drop anchor in Portimao for coastal cave exploring and bird watching, and finish in Portugal’s famously charming capital, Lisbon. With the flexibility to choose between cultural activities and sun-soaked leisure, this is a great choice for those wanting to experience the Iberian lifestyle with a dash of Morocco.
Visit the one and only Alhambra Palace in Granada. This Moorish 'pearl set in emeralds' must be seen to be believed
Take in the natural beauty of the Algarve coast, with its jagged coastline cut with caves and grottoes
Slow the pace down a notch with some bird watching in the Ria Formosa National Park, looking out for flamingos, herons and kingfishers
Visit the bizzare town that rivals anything in Mexico for spaghetti western flair – El Rocio. This is a place of annual pilgrimage for more than a million people
Is this trip right for you?
This is a small ship adventure cruise, which means you’ll be sailing on a yacht with 30–50 other people. The boat is spacious and comfortable, but it focuses more on the destination than on-board activities. Instead of a pool, we have the sea itself. Instead of a casino, we’ve got board games and a good book. There’s also no formal dress code to worry about. Wi-Fi is available for a small charge.
Our ship moves under engine power, rather than sailing, so all cabins will experience light engine noise when the ship is moving (and occasionally when we drop anchor). It’s probably worth packing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper.
Onshore activities and excursions will involve a bit of walking. You’ll be visiting ancient sites and historical places, and at times you may have to cross cobbled streets and uneven ground, sometimes in hot conditions. If you have any concerns, please speak to your group leader before taking part.
If you’re concerned about seasickness, there are seasickness tablets on-board. The ship will experience some roll and pitch in choppy conditions, however all of our ships come equipped with stabilisers to minimise movement. Most of our departures run in peak season, when the seas are calmer. Your crew will do all they can to minimise any discomfort.
There are no lifts (elevators) on-board our ships, so you’ll have to navigate a few steep flights of stairs. Handrails are always available.
