Specially timed to include an overnight stay in Cádiz during the city’s carnival, this is a very special exploration of Andalusia. The Cádiz Festival is a feast of colour, music and comedy and you’ll have ample time to enjoy all the fun and festivity. That’s not all though; there are plenty of other authentic Andalusian experiences on offer too.

Black Watch will arrive early into Cádiz for your memorable overnight stay on Spain’s sunlit Atlantic coast, affording you an opportunity to experience the excitement and celebration of the city’s carnival to the full. One of Spain’s liveliest and most popular annual events, the carnival is a fantastic spectacle of live music, dance and comedy performances. You can enjoy this magical occasion with your fellow guests long into the evening if you wish, or perhaps make the most of your time to discover some of the city’s historical highlights too; whatever you choose to do your ship will be waiting for you when you’re ready to retire to your cabin.

The call into Cádiz precedes stops at another two of Andalusia’s many stunning cities, Malaga and Almería. Malaga offers you a wonderful taste of Andalusian life. This fine city overflows with aesthetic and cultural highlights; don’t miss the Picasso Museum, which celebrates the life of Malaga native Pablo Picasso, and the Moorish Alcazaba Fortress. Malaga is also the starting point for tours to Granada’s magnificent Alhambra Palace and the breathtaking hilltop city of Ronda. In Almería, dramatic volcanic scenery, whitewashed houses and ancient fortresses present typically Andalusian scenes. Stay here to uncover attractions such as the impressive Alcazaba Fortress; or perhaps take a tour to the Tabernas Desert and ‘Oasys Mini Hollywood’, which is within reach on a shore tour. In addition to enjoying four unforgettable days in Andalusia, you’ll also visit the gorgeous Galician city of Vigo for countryside scenery and majestic architecture; and divert to Portugal’s enchanting capital, Lisbon.
