Itinerary

DAY 1 | Southampton

It was the departure point for the Mayflower in 1620, and for the ill-fated Titanic in 1912. The charms of London are not far away, but pray tarry in the south to explore other wonders, including Bath, with its natural hot springs and stunning architecture and the mysterious megaliths of Stonehenge, or venture all the way west to Lands End, and the wild moorlands and pirate haunts of Cornwall.

DAY 2 | At Sea

Spend the day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea. Indulge in a treatment at Sanctum Spa, stay ship shape with a class at our fitness center, or lounge the day away on our sunny pool deck.

In the evening, savor inspired Italian cuisine at Aqualina, or relish in a classic steakhouse experience at Prime C. Plus, you’ll find plenty of exciting evening entertainment, from thrilling shows at Cabaret Lounge to intimate performances in the Living Room.

DAY 3 – 4 | Bordeaux

Wine lovers will love Bordeaux. It’s the industry that fuels the region, and has financed some spectacular chateaux. Pay a visit to Pauillac, Sauternes, Margaux, and Saint-Emilion to learn wine production, and of course sample as glass or two. Explore over 25 acres of spectacular English gardens in the heart of the city at Jardin Public and discover underground wonder in Saint Emilion.

DAY 5 | St. Jean de Luz

Escape to St. Jean de Luz, one of the most stunning beach retreats in France. This Basque town is home to beautiful architecture, delicious cuisine, and the Church of St. John Baptist. Step inside this simple church and discover its 17th-century baroque golden altar. Elsewhere, you’ll find pedestrian areas with many delightful shops and cafes to explore.

DAY 6 | Bilbao

Home to a cultural and architectural renaissance, Bilbao’s factories and ports have been transformed into spectacular urban projects. The ultra-modern Guggenheim Museum is a definite standout, and this gem in Basque country is brimming with fine wines, exceptional cuisine, and a vibrant spirit.

DAY 7 | Gijón

Gijón is the apple of the Bay of Biscay’s eye. And speaking of the fruit, what wine is to Rioja, cider is to Gijón and the surrounding region, Asturias. Follow the Cider Trail (a guided tour to some of the city’s best cider houses and restaurants), browse the Ecological and Crafts Market, and be sure to try a local pastry. Gijón has the largest number of bakeries per capita in all of Spain.

DAY 8 | La Coruna

La Coruna is a city shaped by the sea. You can see this influence in the Roman Tower of Hercules, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The lighthouse marks one end of the spectacular Paseo Marítimo promenade, one of the longest in Europe. Take a stroll to see other waterfront highlights like the Marina, Castelo de San Antón, the Millennium monument, and the most popular beaches—Orzán and Riazor.

DAY 9 | Leixões

At the mouth of the Rio Douro lies the city of Porto, known mostly for its port wine trade. With origins dating back to the 5th century, there is plenty to see in this town. Stroll the Ribeira neighborhood along the river, explore the Cathedral area, or tour the port lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia across the river. Savoring a taste of tawny port, tripe, and seafood while here is highly recommended.

DAY 10 | Lisbon

One of the oldest cities in the world, Lisbon is rich in architecture and criss-crossed by monument-studded grand boulevards. Must-sees include the church of Igreja de Sao Vicente de Fora, which dates back to the 12th century; Musee Calouste Gulbenkian, one of Europe’s leading fine arts museums; and Torre de Belém, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most famous monuments in Portugal.
