Experience the natural coastal splendors and the treasures of Europe’s lesser-known small ports on this 7-day cruise that winds along the coasts of Portugal, Spain, Britain, and Ireland. This memorable journey begins in Lisbon near the ivory medieval Belém Tower, one of the last friendly crenelated fortifications Portuguese explorers and seafarers glimpsed before sailing into the unknown during Portugal’s Age of Discovery. Spend the night in Porto and listen to the strumming of Old World mandolin-style guitarra portuguesas accompanied by folk vocalists during a Porto fado performance. Sip a nightcap of dark and smoky aged port or bright, white Vinho Verde. Sample spicy, frid tapas paired with bright, local dry white wines or robust blended Spanish reds in El Ferrol.
