Cruise Description

16 Night Cruise sailing from Dover roundtrip aboard Boudicca.

Stylish Spanish cities and stunning destinations on the fabulous French Riviera are highlights of this special Mediterranean cruise. Each port of call offers architectural, historical and cultural delights, while gorgeous beaches and breathtaking scenes also await you. Then there’s the high-octane action of a Formula One race to witness – a simply unmissable experience.

The Monaco Grand Prix is an icon of Formula 1. Arguably the most famous and most exciting race in the sport’s globetrotting annual calendar, this spectacular event sees the world’s greatest drivers race to the limit through the narrow streets and tunnels of glitzy Monte Carlo. During a specially-timed call at nearby Nice, you can head to Monaco and experience the thrills, spills, tension and glamour of the 2019 Monaco Grand Prix on an unforgettable tour. Arriving early on race day morning, you’ll have time to soak-up the pre-race atmosphere before taking your seat in the stands to marvel at the mind-bending speeds achieved by some of the world’s most expensive and technologically-advanced race cars.

Alternatively you could stay choose to stay in Nice and stroll Promenade de Anglais to the Bay of Angels; visit the busy Cours Saleya market; or simply enjoy some relaxation at your pick of the city’s beaches. Also on the French Riviera is charming Toulon. Here you’ll find a beautiful old town packed with fine Romanesque architecture, as well as traditional Provencal markets offering a taste of daily life on the Côte d'Azur. This 16-night sailing also features a trio of captivating Spanish destinations. There’s Malaga, on the gorgeous Costa del Sol, which boasts attractions such as the Picasso Museum and Moorish Alcazaba fortress; and the historic city of Cartagena, rich in Roman heritage. An undoubted highlight will be a stop at the cosmopolitan Catalan city of Barcelona. Here you could take in bustling Las Ramblas, the Gothic Cathedral of Santa Eulalia and Antoni Gaudi’s architectural wonders – no time here is complete without seeing the iconic Sagrada Familia. You’ll also visit Leixoes, for tours to the Portuguese city of Oporto – renowned for its imposing churches and world-famous port wine cellars; and enjoy a restful day in Gibraltar, the Mediterranean’s ‘little bit of Britain’.

Highlights of this cruise:

Situated on Andalusia's beautiful Mediterranean coast, Malaga offers everything you would expect from a city on the Costa del Sol: seemingly endless stretches of golden sand beaches, fantastic restaurants serving traditional tapas and friendly bars attract locals and holidaymakers alike.

There's much more to the region's captivating capital than busy beach resorts though. Dig a little deeper and a wealth of cultural, historical, artistic and architectural treasures reveal themselves, such as Catedral de Málaga, the statuesque and striking Alcazaba Fortress and Castillo de Gibralfaro. Not-to-be-missed is the Picasso Museum, which exhibits a fantastic collection of masterpieces from arguably Malaga's most famous 'son', Pablo Picasso.

What's more, Malaga is also your gateway to Granada and the glorious Alhambra, where proud 14th century palaces and exotic gardens are Spain's finest expression of Moorish art; as well as the Ronda Valley, where on tour you can explore a charming old town and the picturesque El Tajo gorge.

Toulon, France
With a beautiful natural harbour and surrounding hills topped by forts, Toulon has long been one of France’s main maritime centres. In the old town, close to the harbour, the Romanesque Cathédrale Sainte-Marie-Majeure dates from the 11th and 12th centuries. In front of the town hall and the naval museum, the columns are carved figures of men, known as atlantes or caryatids – it is a style borrowed from Ancient Greece. The naval museum itself is interesting, with models of ships, displays about galley slaves and pirates and equipment ranging from wheels to figureheads. The Toulon Museum has collections of art from the past 500 years.
On Cours Lafayette in the Old Town there is a fabulous open-air market selling fresh fruit, vegetables and charcuterie. It’s open every morning apart from Monday and it’s worth visiting just to savour the smell of fresh herbs and lavender that hangs in the air.

Cartagena, Spain
One of Spain’s most important port cities for over 2000 years, Cartagena is bursting with history and culture. Originally built over five hills by the Romans, Cartagena is strategically placed on the Mediterranean and boasts some wonderful architecture and historic monuments. They include Casa de la Fortuna, a villa with murals and mosaics, and the medieval Castillo de la Conception, which served as a fortress for the Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and Castilians, and overlooks the stunning natural harbour of the Murcia coast.

Many of the buildings from Roman Cartagena have disappeared, but some important sites remain, including the amphitheatre which dates from around 100BC.

Cartagena is also home to a number of Modernist buildings that were designed and built by the pupils of Antoni Gaudi, the world famous architect renowned for designing the stunning La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The city’s tapas bars and vibrant bars on the marina offer some fabulous local wining and dining.
