Embark

Embark the ship in Malaga.

Day 1: Malaga

Board the Harmony V in Malaga this afternoon and take some time to settle in before a Welcome Cocktail and your first dinner on board.

Day 2: Granada

Today you may join an optional excursion to Granada, one of the most fascinating cities in Europe. Visit one of the most brilliant jewels of universal architecture is the Alhambra, a series of palaces and gardens built under the Nazari Dynasty in the 14th century. You will also visit the Cathedral with its Royal Chapel where Isabel and Ferdinand lie buried, the Monastery of La Cartuja and many churches built by Moorish craftsmen after the Reconquest, in Granada's unique "mudéjar" style. In the afternoon we leave Granada to return to Malaga. Overnight in port.

Day 3: Porto Banus - Ronda - Gibralta

Arrive in Porto Banus where you may enjoy an optional excursion to Ronda, situated 50km inland. Ronda is a particularly charming historic town famous as the birthplace of modern bullfighting, today glimpsed once a year at the spectacular Feria Goyesca. You will visit the elegant cloistered 16th century convent and old Ronda, La Ciudad, with its cobbled streets hemmed by handsome town mansions, some still occupied by Ronda's titled families such as the Casa de Don Bosco. You will also walk to the leafy Plaza Duquesa de Parcent, which boasts a convent, two churches, including the toy town bell tower of the iglesia Santa Maria de Mayor. Afternoon swim from the ship and time at leisure. Evening sailing to Gibraltar and late evening arrival. Overnight in port.

Day 4: Gibralta

Morning arrival in Gibraltar where you may join an optional excursion of the 'Rock'. Reach the Cable Car base station and enjoy a ride to the summit offering breathtaking views as you are suspended in mid-air. Then you will travel to the Middle Station and the sanctuary of Gibraltar’s older inhabitants, the Barbary Apes, roaming free around this station. Proceed to the Gibraltar Museum with its enormous amount of artifacts on display. Midday sailing to Seville. Swim Stop.

Day 5: Cadiz - Seville

This morning sail up the Guadalquivir river, arriving at midday in the port town of Seville. From here you may join an optional afternoon excursion to Seville, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, where Moorish and Spanish art and culture have left their mark. You will visit the Cathedral, the Alcazar Palace and its Andalusian gardens, the Maria Luisa Park and the quaint and elegant district of Santa Cruz. Overnight in Seville port.

Day 6: Seville - Jerez de la Frontera

Wake up in Cadiz and join an optional full day excursion to Sevill and Jerez de la Frontera famous for its wines, horse breeding and flamenco. You will see the Alcazar, the cathedral and a “ganadería”, where bulls are raised to take part in bull fighting, very much part of Spanish culture. Return to the ship for lunch followed by another optional tour of Cadiz and Sanlucar de Barrameda, where you will visit a wine cellar renowned for its production of “Manzanilla”. Guests rejoin the ship in Cadiz in the evening. Overnight at sea to Portimao – Portugal.

Day 7: Portimao

Arrive in the second largest town on the Algarve. Here you may join an optional excursion to the pretty historic town of Silves. Marvel at the centuries-old Moorish castle complex with an underground water reservoir, a 13th Century Cathedral built by Alfonso X of Castile on the site of a former Mosque and a fine strong 15th century bridge over the Rio Arade. During your visit to Silves, you'll also have time to browse the historic exhibits at the Museu Arqueológico. Continue through the Serra de Monchique to reach the picturesque city of Monchique nested between two hills. The city retains its 16th century charm and you will walk through its cobbled streets with small doorways housing various artisan trades. Return to Portimao for the farewell dinner. Overnight in port.
