Day 1: Fly UK » Barcelona, Spain
Fly from the UK to Barcelona. Upon arrival a private transfer will take you to your 4* hotel for a 3-night stay.
Day 2-3: Barcelona, Spain
Take in the views from the top of Montjuïc Hill or visit the Castle, take a stroll through the Gothic Quarter or visit one of Barcelona's restaurants for tapas and sangria, there are many things to see and do in Barcelona that you will be spoilt for choice. As Barcelona is famous for its architecture we have included the guided tour Artistic Barcelona - The Best of Gaudí. On this tour you will visit Sagrada Família, Park Güell, Casa Batlló and other masterpieces.
Day 4: Embark in Barcelona
Check out of your 4* hotel and make your way to the cruise terminal and embark Sky Princess for your 14-night Spanish Passage cruise.
Day 5: Valencia, Spain
Spain's third largest city grew from a first century Roman outpost to become a rival to Barcelona's dizzying energy and Madrid's cultural attractions-which explains the colourful mix of cosmopolitan buildings and Old World charm you'll encounter around every corner. While the city boasts Lladró porcelain, the UNESCO-recognised La Lonja, or Old Silk Exchange, and the imposing Valencia Cathedral, just a few miles away is a world of undulating hillsides covered in vineyards and a magical maze of caverns to tempt you as well. As you explore each fascinating facet of this beautiful city you'll discover that it will never fail to delight, inspire and surprise.
Day 6: Málaga, Spain
One of Spain's oldest cities, Málaga has been inhabited since the time of the Phoenicians, who called it Malaka. A city of narrow streets, whitewashed houses, churches and sunny plazas, Málaga offers an idealised image of Spain. Andalusia's main port is also your gateway to the resorts of the Costa del Sol. No visit to Málaga would be complete without a trip to Granada and a tour of the fabled Alhambra.
Málaga was the chief port for the Kingdom of Granada, the last stronghold of Moorish Spain. The city fell to Ferdinand and Isabelle in 1487. The re-conquest of Spain ended with the fall of Grenada in 1492, the year Columbus discovered the New World.
Day 7: Seville (Cádiz), Spain
Mention Spain and the images that inevitably spring to mind are images of Andalusia - shadows falling across the bullring, the staccato rhythms of flamenco, the waft of orange blossoms from a Moorish garden. Cádiz is your gateway to this storied land and the city of Seville. Visit Seville's massive Alcázar fortress, modelled on the legendary Alhambra Palace of Granada. See the city's cathedral, a 15th-century Gothic masterwork that boasts a Moorish patio, fountain and minaret. Seville is also the legendary home of Don Juan, Bizet's Carmen and Rossini's Barber of Seville.
Cádiz is one's of Europe's oldest inhabited cities, dating from 1100 B.C., and your gateway to Seville and Andalusia.
Day 8: Lisbon, Portugal
Draped across seven hills, Lisbon was once the centre of a vast maritime empire that stretched from the west coast of Africa to the Spice Islands of the East Indies. Then, on November 1, 1755, a violent earthquake destroyed two-thirds of the city in the space of 10 minutes. Only the Alfama, the old Moorish quarter, survived. Today, Lisbon is a stately city of Neoclassical buildings and wide plazas.
Day 9: Day at Sea
Passionate about their culinary craft, Princess Cruises have committed to serving you mouthwatering, handcrafted dishes made from scratch throughout your voyage. Be sure to join them at one of their award-winning speciality restaurants to celebrate your next birthday, anniversary or milestone and enjoy tantalising specialities.
Day 10: Madeira (Funchal), Portugal
The capital of Madeira is named after the fennel (funcha) that once flowered there in profusion. The largest island in the Madeira Archipelago was discovered in 1419 by Portuguese explorers venturing south into the Atlantic. The island is nearly equidistant from Lisbon and the African coast, and its unique geographical position allowed Madeira to play a pivotal role in European discovery. Seamen such as Christopher Columbus gained knowledge and experience plying the routes of the island's sugar trade. When sugar declined, the island's famed wines continued to provide a robust trade. By the late 18th century, Madeira's mild climate, rocky peaks, and lush valleys provided a winter haven to Europe's aristocrats. Visitors still flock to the island today, drawn by its scenery and its weather.
Funchal is noted for its superb hand-embroidery and wicker ware, both Madeira specialities. The island, of course, is also noted for its superb wines: they are perhaps the world's most complex and long lasting wines.
Day 11-17: Day at Sea
From the moment you step aboard, Princess Cruises want you to feel welcomed and right at home. And with attentive service from a friendly member of staff that knows what hospitality means, you’ll find your Princess® ship truly is your home away from home.

The city's reputation as America's Spring Break capital, however, has been replaced with the more favourable image of a prime family tourist destination, attracting more than 10 million visitors annually.
