The lands south of Portugal and Spain sail somewhere under the radar compared to their northern brothers, yet the area is home to some of the best sights that Iberia has to offer. Dive straight in to this exciting yet lesser-explored region by boat, casting off from Malaga and travelling to Granada’s excellent Moorish buildings and tapas bars. Travel to Ronda, on past the famous ‘Rock’ of Gibraltar, then to Cadiz, Seville and Jerez de la Frontera – make sure you fill up on some of the delicious local food and drink on the way. You’ll also get to travel to Portugal and explore some outstanding medieval citadels before landing in it’s cosmopolitan capital, Lisbon. Enjoy this trip as you wrap your head around some interesting local history, or kick back on the Panorama II’s upper deck while you work on your tan. Either way, this adventure cruise is an excellent way to experience the Iberian lifestyle.
