Iberian Highlights Cruise: 10-nights in September 2012.

Spend ten night's aboard the Queen Mary 2 witnessing the Iberian highlights. Depart Southampton and embark on Vigo, Spain. Shaded squares and cobbled streets make for an excellent amble around this old fishing town. Seafood restaurants are plentiful in the harbour, make sure you leave time to sample your favourite dish! Lisbon, Portugal spreads its ancient sites on seven hills overlooking the Tagus River. Atop the highest hill, St. George’s Castle overlooks the city. Balconies ablaze with geraniums and wrought iron lamps light up the medieval Alfama quarter. Sorrowful fados ring out from cafés in the Alto and shoppers browse in the affluent Chiado district. Valencia is an exhilarating mix of history, art and intellectual activity. Its rich Hispanic culture is visible everywhere in art and architecture reflecting Roman, Visigoth, Moorish, and Aragonese traditions. Barcelona- Step back in time and soak up the atmosphere of the Gothic Quarter. Time to put your feet up? A shady spot in a café provides the perfect vantage point for watching the colourful street performers on Las Ramblas. Ride the cable car to Monjuic and you’ll discover the 1992 Olympic area – not to mention golden views over the city and Mediterranean Sea. Visit the vibrant Fruit market and enjoy Gaudi's architecture which spreads across the city!
