Western Europe

Where we sail.

Bilbao, Spain

Bilbao is in the heart of Basque Country on the Iberian coast bordering the Bay of Biscay. It’s known for the wet and temperate climate that sustains its landscapes of lush dairy pastures and forests.

Cadiz, Spain

Historic, mysterious and romantic, the Spanish city of Cadiz is unlike any other. Founded in about 1100 BC, it is generally accepted as the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in today’s Europe.

Cartagena, Spain

A historic and major naval station located in the Region of Murcia by the Mediterranean coast of southeastern Spain, Cartagena’s multi-faceted beauty is thanks to centuries of often-turbulent change.

Cherbourg, France

Cherbourg is steeped in seafaring history and a thriving port. It has a busy, cheerful and international atmosphere, with easily navigable streets dotted with inviting restaurants and charming cafés.

Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

As you’ll see, Madeira’s reputation as the “Garden Island” is well-founded. It’s swathed in lush greenery and bears all manner of tropical fruits. The region is famous for its delicious Madeira wine.

Gibraltar

Gibraltar is perhaps best known for The Rock, a 426-feet limestone ridge with sheer drops on its northern and eastern sides. Beyond, Gibraltar’s landscape is rural, diverse, and well worth exploring.
