You will leave Calvi harbor in an air-conditioned coach driving slowly through town and sightseeing the old town of Calvi. Then you will be crossing the River Figarella, going deeper into the Corsican countryside on the road to the village of Calenzana with its 1700 inhabitants.

In addition, wine making and cheese making are very important in this region. You will discover the village’s 17th century Baroque church with its three chapels and its winding old streets. At Domaine Orsini, you will experience the best of Corsican hospitality. In one of the most beautiful Corsican wine cellars you will get to taste some of the most delicious wines made in Corsica.  You will tour the winery. The wines bear the prestigious label “Appelation d’Origine Controlée-Calvi” (AOC-Calvi). The vinification process takes the best of tradition and the best of what modern winemaking has to offer. 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.

Malaga by Segway
Some things are just plain fun and riding a Segway around Spain definitely falls into that category. It takes a few minutes to get the hang of it; then you'll never want to get off! You'll begin your ride (after an introduction to the operation of the Segway) at Plaza de la Marina, in the center of Málaga. Continue to Larios Street, the main shopping avenue of the city, then on to Merced Square, at the end of Calle Alcazabilla, to see the obelisk erected as a tribute to General Torrijos, currently the headquarters of the Picasso Foundation. Next you will ride to the Santiago Church, built on the site of a former mosque and Málaga's oldest church (founded in 1490). You’ll also visit the Roman Theatre, discovered in 1951, which was built in the time of Caesar Augustus and used until the 3rd century A.D. After that time, it was used as a quarry by the Moors to restore the Alcazaba, which is the next stop on your tour. This impressive building, constructed mainly in the 11th century, was the palace/fortress of the ruling Muslims. Continuing on your tour, you’ll see the Catedral de la Encarnacion, Bishop Square, and the Paseo del Parque, before returning to Marina Square. 

Please note:  This tour is not possible for people confined to wheelchairs.  The minimum age to participate is 10 and participants must weigh between 66 and 265 pounds. Helmets will be provided. Participants must sign a waiver to go on this excursion.

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.
