Day to Day Itinerary

1
Day 1: Southampton, England
Departs at 4:30 PM
Located on England's South Coast, Southampton is a city full of surprises. Home to one of the largest ports in Europe, the city has a lot to offer people passing through for the day. Step back in time and explore the old town – walk along the medieval town walls, parts of which date back to 1290. Visit Bargate, a medieval gatehouse built by Normans in the 12th century. Check out SeaCity Museum and learn about what it would have been like to set sail on the Titanic in 1912 – Southampton is where the historic ship left port. Or venture out and explore the Hampshire countryside: Iconic Stonehenge is just a one-hour drive away.
2
Day 2-3: Cruising at sea
NORTH STAR®
It’s time to raise the bar on adventure – with 360-degree views of the world from 100 metres above sea level in the North Star® observation capsule – winner of the Guinness World Record for tallest viewing deck on a cruise ship.
3
Day 4: Gibraltar, United Kingdom
From 2:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Gibraltar rocks – in more ways than one. From ancient castles to lush botanical gardens and the panoramic views you enjoy from the city's cable car, this British Overseas Territory is more than its most famous landmark, the Rock of Gibraltar. Cruise to Gibraltar and discover more than 300 years of history while touring landmarks like the Convent, where Gibraltar's governors have resided since the 18th century. Or monkey around with Barbary macaques, a semi-wild species of monkey that calls the territory home. Finish your day with a stroll through the port area, and dine outdoors for ocean views and seafood-focused, Mediterranean-inspired eats.
4
Day 5: Cartagena, Spain
From 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Cartagena greets you with its ancient Mediterranean port on Spain's southeastern coast. Originally governed by the Carthaginians and subsequently by the Romans, Arabs and Castilians, this pedestrian-friendly city is a history buff's dream port. Visit the 2,000-year-old Roman Theatre and the attached museum, where you'll find an ancient altar to Jupiter and a statue of Apollo. Then, check out the late 19th-century modernist architecture of Cartagena's historic center. Cruises to Cartagena, Spain allow you to stroll down blue-marble-tiled pedestrian-only Calle Mayor. Or take the 30-minute drive to the Batteria de Castillitos, a medieval-style fortress situated among the picturesque mountain landscape.
5
Day 6: Valencia, Spain
From 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Spain's third largest city, Valencia offers a little bit of everything, from historic sites and bustling city squares to placid beaches. Soak up the sun at Malvarrosa Beach along the urban seafront, or head to El Saler for a more remote beach experience surrounded by white-sand dunes and pine trees. Cruise to Valencia and get your culture fix at Gothic Valencia Cathedral, and see the 15th-century renaissance paintings housed in its interior. Head to Plaza de la Reina in the city's old town and do some people-watching over a fresh glass of horchata, a classic Valencia beverage made from almond milk with cinnamon and spices, or take a picnic lunch of fresh pears and local cheese to the quiet Turia Gardens.
6
Day 7: Barcelona, Spain
From 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
It’s easy to see why Barcelona is the most-visited city in Spain. As the capital of the country’s Catalonia region, this cityscape’s cultural mosaic pieces together a 2,000-year-old hodge-podge of sun-drenched beaches, cutting edge architecture and a world-renowned dining and drinking scene. Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí left his modernist handprint all over the city, while medieval treasures linger in historic Gothic Quarter squares. Get lost in the whimsical gardens of Park Güell or savour a chef-led Catalan cooking class. Browse art collections dedicated to Picasso and Miro – or ride a cable car to the top of Montjuïc Hill, relishing citywide views along the way.
7
Day 8: Cannes, France
Tendered from 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
The French Riviera is synonymous with glamour and wealth – and when it comes to prestige, Cannes is the crown jewel. Home to the famous Cannes Film Festival, the city comes to life with film stars each year for the event. But you don't have to be a big-shot to feel like a star here. Head to Palm Beach to take a dip and bask in the sunshine. Stroll down the famous mile-long La Croisette and take in the views of the marina and town below. Cruise to Cannes and head up the hill to Le Suquet, the original town centre that's remained unchanged for hundreds of years.
8
Day 9: Cruising at sea
Enjoy on board entertainment and the magnificent views on the way to Malaga. Foodies are recommended to try Chops Grille. For more than a decade, the chefs of Chops Grille have proudly presented quality, hand-cut prime steaks at this hallmark Royal Caribbean restaurant
9
Day 10: Malaga, Spain
From 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The hub of Spain's southern Costa del Sol, Málaga is the picture of paradise. Scale the hilltop to dramatic La Alcazaba, the sandy-colored Moorish fortress dating back to the 11th century that overlooks this ancient seaside city. Sun yourself on the idyllic beaches of Caleta and Malagueta, taking in views of the mountains across the bay. See the eccentric works of modernist master Pablo Picasso, the city's most famous native son, at the Picasso Museum. Cruise to Málaga and immerse yourself in baroque and renaissance architecture at Málaga Cathedral, with its elaborate arches and stone reliefs depicting the saints, or turn the clock back to the first century A.D. at the ruins of the Roman Theatre.
10
Day 11 – Seville (Cadiz), Spain
From 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM
As the capital of Spain’s Andalusia region, the energetic city of Seville stands tall at the banks of the Guadalquivir River. And like its rich flamenco legacy, this well-preserved city performs an elaborate dance between Moorish history and youth-infused street culture. A jovial spirit and intoxicating personality flow freely throughout its narrow streets, from Old Town’s palaces to the tapas bars of Santa Cruz. Admire the lavish stylings of Plaza de España from a painted ceramic bench, or stroll through Maria Luisa Park’s serene greenery. Stand in Spain’s oldest bullring at the Bullfighting Museum – or breathe in citywide views from the top of Torre del Oro.
11
Day 12-13: Cruising at Sea
Last chance to enjoy on board entertainment on the way back to Southampton.
