Discover unforgettable destinations overlooked by larger cruise lines during this 10-day Western Mediterranean cruise that visits historic landmarks and little-known spaces in Portugal, Spain, and Morocco.

Sip fino and oloroso sherries in a quiet cellar outside of Cádiz. Prepare traditional Moroccan flat bread for baking in a local oven during a Tangier cooking school lesson. Barter for handmade jewelry and handpainted ceramics in a crowded souk.
