Tangier, Concierge Collection: Cooking Class at the Blue Door
Moroccan cuisine is considered one of the most important cuisines in the world. The cuisine of the first inhabitants, the Berbers, still exists today in the staple dishes like tagine and couscous.  The Arab invasion brought new spices, nuts and dried fruits, and the sweet and sour combinations that we see in dishes like tagine with dates and lamb. The Moors introduced olives, olive juice and citrus while the Jewish-Moors left behind their sophisticated preserving techniques that we see in the frequent use of preserved lemons, pickles, etc.  The Ottoman Empire introduced barbecue (kebabs) to Moroccan cuisine. The French colony, although short-lived left behind a culture of cafes, pastries, and even wine.  Over time, cooks in the kitchens of the five royal cities (Fez, Marrakesh, Meknes, Tangier and Rabat) have developed and perfected the dishes that blend each of these distinct tastes. Every Moroccan dish has its place in society and varies with the market, the season, and the region. Your first stop will be the Grand Socco, home to a cavalcade of color, charm, street musicians, a fish market, scenic handicrafts, and spices. You will then proceed to Blue Door Hotel Cooking Classroom, where you will be welcomed with Moroccan tea followed by a cooking lesson of a very traditional Moroccan dish,  learn how to make the traditional Moroccan bread and take it to a local oven. In the meantime, while waiting for the bread, you will learn how to make and serve a real Moroccan tea. Once food is ready, enjoy lunch and this authentic experience. Depart for your ship  with the knowledge needed to impress at your next dinner party.

Please note: Wear comfortable, flat  walking shoes. Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, local currency.

Tangier, Tantalizing Tangier & Tetouan
Disembark the ship and depart by air-conditioned coach for a drive to Cap Spartel, one of the promontories projecting into the waters of the two seas. It looks towards the Atlantic and the setting sun and is where the Atlantic Ocean meets Mediterranean Sea. The Hercules cave has two openings, one to sea and one to land. The cave itself is part natural and part man-made.  You will re-board the coach for a short drive to the entrance of the Kasbah, before beginning a comprehensive walking excursion through one of Tangier’s most historic and architecturally interesting areas. The Kasbah area is spread across the highest point of the medina, and your guide will lead you on an uphill walk while pointing out special buildings and suggesting good places for photos. Once at the top you will find yourself in an area much unchanged since the Roman times. The Kasbah Museum is newly renovated and focuses on the history of the neighborhood. You’re sure to enjoy the traditional courtyard, the various displays and the large mosaic works or art on display. Your guide will lead you into one of Tangier's most colorful and bustling areas, the Grand Socco (Souk). It is the center of things and the link between the medina and the new city.  You will then drive to Tetouan, to tour the old Royal Palace, a 17th century building closed to public entry but its main ornate gate Bab Er-Rouah can give you a mental idea of what is beyond. Hassan II Square is situated where the historic and modern parts of the city converge to create the heart of the town. Join a guided walk through the Medina which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will have the opportunity to visit the Bab Akla School of Traditional Arts and Crafts. Tetouan’s famous School of Plastic Arts, the first of its kind in Morocco, has produced some of Morocco’s best painters over the past half century. The city stands out for the beauty of these traditional arts including embroidery, cuisine, zullayj or mosaics, and carved and painted wooden objects. The scholars of the school are all children that come from disadvantaged backgrounds and the skills learned give them a new opportunity for success in their future. Your entrance fees go directly to maintaining this wonderful initiative.  Enjoy a typical Moroccan lunch in a beautiful Riad in the Old Medina of Tetouan. Time permitting, you will have some time at leisure for shopping before returning to the ship.

Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes. This tour is not wheelchair accessible nor suitable for guests with mobility issues.  Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat,  and local currency. Kasbah Museum is closed on Tuesdays, so the visit to the Museum will be replaced with the American Legation Museum, a very important venue with a compilation  of artifacts and documents that tell the history between Morocco and the Unites States.

Palma de Mallorca, Valldemossa Village & Chopin with Tasting
A short motor coach drive past olive trees and local vegetation brings you to the quaint 14th century village of Valldemossa, located at the foot of the Northern Mountain Range. Its former royal residence, La Cartuja, is the first stop on your tour. The residence became a Carthusian monastery in the Middle Ages and your guide will show you the chapel, a pharmacy, and the monks’ library. Valldemossa’s shining moment was in 1838, when George Sand and Frederic Chopin came to live at the monastery. Their stay here is well documented and a collection of their furniture remains. George Sand later wrote a book about their time here, entitled “A Winter in Majorca.” During free time, you will have the perfect opportunity to taste the typical sweets from Valldemosa called Coca de Patata, an individual sweet cake made with potatoes. The drive back to the ship will give you the opportunity to view the impressive cliffs to the north.

A short motor coach drive past olive trees and local vegetation brings you to the quaint 14th century village of Valldemossa, located at the foot of the Northern Mountain Range. Its former royal residence, La Cartuja, is the first stop on your tour.

After harvesting, the grapes are left together with their skin for the maceration process as it was done in the old days so that the grape juice keeps all of its aroma and bouquet. But the quality has been tremendously improved with the use of stainless steel barrels in the winemaking process but aging, on the other hand, is done in oak barrels, like in ancient times.  A bottle of Orsini wine will be offered to each guest.

Even if this small port was swept by terrible winds, it was protected by a rock,  easily defensible, and upon which a dungeon (or bastiglia) was built- and hence the name of the town Bastia. The numerous religious buildings dotted all over the island bear witness to the profound religious fervor of its inhabitants and their attachment to the Catholic faith. Despite this, the collective consciousness remains steeped in many pagan traditions,with relics of ancient beliefs. The mystical spirit of Corsica finds its true expression during the great Christian festivals, however the barrier between the natural and supernatural world is extremely permeable and Corsica is teeming with visionaries, faith healers, and mediums. This walking tour will take you to some purportedly haunted sites, and give you an overview of the superstitions and local legends which still hold sway.
