Cruise Description

7 Night Cruise sailing from Malaga to Southampton aboard Boudicca.

Meet Boudicca in Spain and enjoy a relaxing sail back to UK, calling into a string of enchanting cities along the way. An abundance of historic sites, cultural delights and architectural wonders await at each destination on your itinerary, so you’re in for a rewarding experience from start to finish.

The many museums, galleries and monuments of Malaga – the starting point for this enlightening, seven night springtime escape – are yours to discover first before setting sail. An overnight stay here will afford time to visit the Picasso Museum and celebrate the life and works of Malaga native Pablo Picasso; see the imposing Baroque Cathedral and Moorish Alcazaba Fortress; and much more. The magnificent Alhambra Palace in nearby Granada is within reach and well worth a visit too. From the Costa del Sol’s capital it’s on to the sun-kissed Costa de la Luz and the ancient port city of Cádiz. The iconic Torre Tavira Watchtower, Plaza de Espana, the 18th century cathedral and Santa Catalina Castle are just a few of the attractions found just a short distance from the port. A guided panoramic drive through the city is a great way to take them all in. Not to be missed is the chance to stop by the Taberna Flamenca La Cava tavern to catch a traditional Flamenco dance performance.

Next, as Boudicca heads north along the Atlantic coast of Spain and Portugal, you’ll divert into the picturesque Portuguese capital, Lisbon. The impressive Ponte 25 de Abril Bridge will be a sight to behold from the decks of your ship as sail towards the port; while your day ashore could be spent discovering the city’s fascinating museums, art-nouveau cafés and architectural gems such as the iconic Bélem Tower and Jerónimos Monastery. Alternatively you could choose to tour to the medieval town of Obidos; or visit UNESCO-listed Sintra. Continuing northwards you’ll then return to Spanish shores and gorgeous Galician city of Vigo. Whether you’re hoping to admire stunning scenery, sample engrossing culture or go in search of wonderful architecture you won’t be disappointed here. Perhaps take in countryside views from atop La Guia Hill; admire grand façades and gothic churches in the Old Town; and sample tapas at a delightful café. Finally a call into La Coruña will offer you the chance to journey to Santiago de Compostela – one of Christendom’s three global spiritual capitals – and marvel at the world-famous cathedral, one of Spain’s most spectacular structures.

Highlights of this cruise:

In the fabulous city of Malaga – the birthplace of Picasso – visit the Moorish Alcazaba Fortress, try authentic Spanish tapas or take a tour to Granada and the Alhambra Palace. This 14th century structure, is Spain’s finest expression of Moorish art.

Cadiz, Spain
Cadiz - one of Western Europe's most ancient cities - hugs Andalusia’s sunlit Atlantic coast and is characterised by palm trees, lookout towers and weathered old buildings. Historic and pretty, the city centre is a joy to explore with a fascinating Old Town district containing huge stone walls from the 1500s and a beautifully carved cathedral.

Lisbon, Portugal
Spread out over seven hills on the north of the River Tagus, Lisbon is a delightful mix of palaces, art-nouveau cafés, museums, gardens, ancient castles and splendid bridges. Don’t miss a visit to the Centro Commercial Colombo – the biggest shopping mall on the Iberian Peninsula!
