The sun will shine upon you as you enter the harbour of Vigo, the largest city in Spain’s autonomous Galicia region. Located in Vigo’s Old Town, Museo Municipal de Vigo tells the broader story of Vigo. Learn about the region’s main historical claim to fame, the Camino de Santiago - a pilgrimage leading to the Galician church where, legend has it, the remains of the Apostle James are housed. Put on a wider lens by hiking up to Castelo do Castro, where you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the city and its port. Another place to appreciate an eclectic cross-section of local Vigo life is Plaza Porta do Sol, a popular meeting point. Take the 45-minute boat ride to the Cies Islands. Here, you’ll find calm white-sand beaches with pristine blue waters, surrounded by views of the dramatic mountainous landscape.
A quintessential European city, full of natural beauty, historic architecture and culinary pleasures. Step into the pages of a fairy tale in Sintra, a UNESO World Heritage Site a short ride from Lisbon. The city’s awash in colourful buildings and grand forts, including the Romanticist architecture of the pastel-hued Pena Palace and the extravagant Quinta da Regalaira villa. Or, wander through gardens inspired by Dante’s “Inferno.” History buffs should head to Belem. See the 16th-century Manueline architecture of the Jeronimos Monastery. Visit the final resting place of explorer Vasco de Gama before walking to the river to snap a photo of the Torre de Belem, a 16th-century fort that appears to float in the ocean. Tram 28 is the best-known tram line, taking riders through all the must-see neighbourhoods.

Home to gorgeous aquamarine seas, white-sand beaches and nearly year-round sunshine. UNESCO has dubbed the island a biosphere reserve protected site, and its remote, wild beaches are the perfect place for a surfing excursion or a simple afternoon spent relaxing at what feels like the edge of the world. The small, 15th-century town of Teguise was the original capital of Lanzarote, and colonial mansions still line its cobblestone streets. Much of Lanzarote’s shopping is centred in the capital city of Arrecife, where you’ll find plenty of small, outdoor markets where you should expect to haggle.
You have to see Gran Canaria’s coastline to believe it. A rocky coastline embraces most of the island, while beaches dot the periphery. Desert-style dunes adorn the south, and leafy mountains crown the centre. Discover Gran Canarias’ capital, and feel the eclectic beat of a city. Its most emblematic building? Las Palmas Cathedral, which took over 400 years to complete. Head to the southern part of Gran Canaria to experience a desert-like atmosphere. In Maspalomas, you’ll encounter dunes believed to have formed after a tsunami hit this part of the island.
As your ship docks at the largest island, Tenerife, you’ll feel like you’ve entered another world. The landscape here ranges from deserts to dense forests to spectacular beaches. If culture and history are your thing, there’s plenty in Santa Cruz-proper to keep you stimulated. Make a stop at the illuminating Natural History Museum or the Basilica de Candelaria shrine. The most popular beach is Las Teresitas, whose golden sands look particularly striking contrasted with the crystalline blue water that laps at them. If you like bargaining, try your luck at Mercado Municipal Nuestra Senora de Africa, open every day until 2:30 p.m. Here, you’ll find local handicrafts like ceramic dishware made from volcanic stone, as well as clothing and shoes at wholesale prices.
Madeira is an adventure junkie’s paradise. A trip to Madeira isn’t complete until you’ve walked along a levanda. With over 3,000 kilometres of irrigation channels around the island, the routes are endless. Wander deep into chasms, across mountains or through long tunnels, and discover some of the best views on the island. Shop till you drop on Funchal’s main streets. Find regional goods, Portuguese delicacies and international shops in the capital city. For a more local feel, head to Feira da Lagartixa. Try your bartering skills at the flea market, and discover unique treasures to bring back home with you.
By day, it’s an open area living room with panoramic views through windows two decks high. By night, the lights go down, the windows become screens and the space comes alive with aerialists, robots and much more. This is Two70® - a place that can take you anyplace. After you’ve taken a ride on the North Star℠, featuring brilliant 360º views from 300 feet above sea level, celebrate your unforgettable ascent with something sparkling, mixed, frosty, or tropical. At North Star Bar, the sips are just as impressive as the sights.
Perched on a rocky peninsula in Spain’s northwest, La Coruna is brimming with ancient Roman heritage and maritime history. Head to the Crystal City, located right near the harbour, and check out the galerias, the 19th-century enclosed glass balconies reflecting the glittering waters of the Atlantic. Then, walk the Paseo Maritimo: The promenade will take you past ocean views to the Cidade Vella, the city’s old town full of remnants of the ancient and medieval past. Walk along the still-standing remnants of the city’s Roman Wall, and climb the green hill to the Tower of Hercules, a Roman lighthouse that’s been in active use since the second century A.D.
Slip away to this adults-only indoor and outdoor retreat. The Solarium is your slice of paradise, with soothing whirlpools, warm sunshine and a refreshing water mist.
