What to Expect
Moderate activity level
Cultural Immersion
PACING
  • This adventure is moderately paced
  • Your 16-day expedition cruise includes 10 nights aboard the Ocean Explorer, 2 nights in a hotel in Barcelona and 2 nights in a hotel in Lisbon
  • You’ll spend a total of 13 days exploring the historic and cultural sites, mostly on half-day tours that conclude by lunchtime. One day in Seville is free, followed by a leisurely cruise up the Guadalquivir River

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS
  • This is a tour for moderately active travelers. There are daily walking tours throughout
  • Sightseeing takes place on air-conditioned/heated coaches with guides
  • Footing can be uneven or challenging in some of the ancient sites we visit. The cobbled streets of medieval Old Towns will also require care.

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION
  • Most shore excursions, especially those at ancient and medieval sites and in rural areas, require walking on uneven terrain
  • Shore excursions utilize air-conditioned shuttles or motorcoaches. During the hotel-based land portion of this trip, a walking tour might leave directly from the hotel, or it too might utilize air-conditioned shuttles or motorcoaches

CLIMATE
  • Due to the climate, we advise you to pack sunscreen and moisturizer (in the amounts permitted by TSA regulations), and bring a hat and sunglasses as well. If you’re traveling in summer, be sure to bring very cool cotton or linen clothing
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please use this chart as a general guideline and check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly

Important Notice: The above day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Vantage Cruise Director or regional expert.

Please Note: Port-of-call orientation walking tours are subject to change based on port time and weather conditions
