Discover a Portugal Cruise

Portugal has so much more going for it than just golf and stunning beaches. Granted, they are 2 of the features that bring cruise guests back again and again, but it offers a lot more than just that. It has some of Europe’s finest beaches (such as Cascasi and Sagres) and is teaming with traditional villages, vibrant cities and its countryside is full of historic treasures.

Explore Lisbon

The capital city of Lisbon is set on a hillside and slopes down to the River Tagus. Cool and cosmopolitan, it blends the modern with the traditional with a bustling café culture and some of the most fascinating historical buildings in Portugal, such as the Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Monument to the Discoveries). Porto is in the north-west of Portugal and, as well as being a favourite pilgrimage for port wine lovers, boasts a stunning historic old city centre that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Things to do in Portugal

Of course, a cruise holiday to Portugal can take you to the famous Algarve with its golf courses and beaches offering total relaxation or adrenaline-powered water sports if you prefer. Whatever your preference, a cruise to Portugal will leave you wanting to come back for more.
