Overview

From the golden coast of Guernsey to the beautifully verdant winelands of Bordeaux and the allure of Spain’s Basque Country to the colourful harbourside cities of Portugal, wake up to new scenery each day on this diverse cruise of Atlantic Europe.  

Setting sail from British soil, it isn’t long before Guernsey’s splendid coastline comes into view, with its welcoming marinas, cobbled streets and charming spires. Next, we cruise south to France, stopping at chic Saint-Malo, picture-perfect Belle Île and Port Médoc, world-renowned by wine fanatics for the ‘Route des Châteaux’. Our elegant small ship then heads further south to San Sebastián and Santander, for a true taste of the history, culture and landscapes that make the Basque Country a popular year-round destination. The best of Atlantic Europe is rounded off with stops in some of Portugal’s most picturesque ports, Porto, Cascais and Lisbon, where local experts will shine a light on what makes this part of the world so special.
