With the fire of fiesta at its heart, Spain is an unmissable jewel in Europe's crown. Dazzling Barcelona and stylish Valencia are two of many highlights on our Spanish cruises.
Discover our Spain ports of call.
Alicante is located on the eastern coast of Spain known as the Costa Blanca. Blessed with white-sand beaches and rugged mountain ranges, it also has great nightlife and a cosmopolitan feel.
Vying for your attention in Catalonia’s visually stunning capital are the magnificent medieval buildings of the lively Gothic quarter and the exotic creations of architect Antoni Gaudi.
Art lovers will fall for rugged Bilbao. Home to both the Guggenheim and the Bellas Artes museums, you can spend more than one afternoon wandering the airy galleries, coffee in hand.
During the 16th and 17th centuries much of Spain’s naval power was projected from the port of Cartagena. Many of these coastal fortifications still exist, providing splendid views of the harbour.
Take the cable car up the 1,400ft sheer-sided peak for panoramic views of the town, your ship, Spain and Africa. Descend on foot to Michael’s Cave with its impressive rock formations.
Few places can boast such an international mix as the Balearic Island of Ibiza. Partying aside, there are plenty of attractions including Dalt Villa, a World Heritage Site, shops and tapas bars.
On a narrow thread of land on the Galician coast, the ‘Crystal City’ provides out guests with a gateway to Santiago de Compostella, one of Spain’s most romantic and historic cities.
Malaga is a spectacular legacy of Moorish culture. Take a trip along the coast to Granada to the exquisite Alhambra Palace. This is also the birthplace of Picasso.
The best views are reserved by those who arrive by sea. The white battlements of Bellver Castle sit on a hill overlooking the towering cathedral that took 400 years to build.
From Cádiz you can reach Seville. Explore the old town with its quaint vibe as well as its impressive monuments, pretty parks and lovely architecture. Don’t miss the tapas bars.
Known as the birthplace of paella, Valencia is a vibrant, friendly, mildly chaotic place with two outstanding fine-arts museums, an accessible old quarter, and an expansive cultural and scientific complex.
This picturesque port on Spain’s lush Galician coastline gives you easy access to fascinating medieval towns like Bayona. A fan of white beaches? A journey to the Cíes Islands is worth it.
Whether it's your first or hundredth time visiting Spain, this diverse country offers something new every time you set foot on its shores. The good weather in Spain means that life is lived outdoors –sangria at pavement cafes, long ambles on the beach and a jubilant buzz once night falls are all mainstays of the Spanish lifestyle.
Feeling hungry? Time for tapas! The traditional Spanish way of eating is relaxed and sociable. Every Spanish city is peppered with tapas restaurants and cafes but we think some of the best are in Barcelona. Just make sure to save room for the fine dining once you get back onboard!
While in Barcelona don't miss the whimsical architecture of Antoni Gaudi – from the gothic detail of the (still unfinished) Sagrada Familia to the colourful mosaics of Park Guell.
Barcelona offers so much, but a cruise to Spain also allows you to discover the sophistication of Valencia, the culture of Bilbao or the history of Cartagena, among other ports of call. All offer something different, along with that Spanish love for life.
Temperatures in Barcelona and the south and east of Spain reach an average peak of 30 degrees in August, so if you take a Spain cruise during the summer months make sure to pack light layers, sunglasses and suncream.
In the winter, temperatures hover around 14 degrees, so you might need a jacket or scarf.
