Spain Cruise Holidays
Spain Cruise Holiday Highlights
Spanish destinations on the Mediterranean sea have a unique cityscape, where past and present play out in a lively mix of architecture and anything-but-everyday life. Walk on golden sands, take a cultural journey through the ages, set your pulse racing in rolling countryside and listen to the heartfelt sounds of local musicians. From proud local traditions to gastronomic delights.
Nestled in the spectacular Costa Brava coastline, Alicante boasts year-round sunshine, some lovely beaches, a charming Old Town and an elegant waterfront promenade. The cosmopolitan Catalonian capital has much to offer, day and night. Stroll up the famous Las Ramblas, sample some world-leading cuisine or soak up the sun on one of the many city beaches. Much more than just a gateway to the Costa del Sol, this ancient city of Malaga has reinvented itself as a cultural and gastronomic gem on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, thanks to a sparkling new waterfront area, a thriving art scene, and some fantastic bars and restaurants. Valencia, Spain’s third city, is a wonderful blend of historic and modern architecture, from the Gothic buildings of the old city to the stunning contemporary City of Arts and Sciences. And there’s no shortage of culture and cuisine on offer, too.

Explore Spain on a Mediterranean Cruise Holiday
When choosing a holiday destination, it can be difficult to decide between a cultural city escape or a relaxing beach break. But who says it has to be one or the other? Many cities in the Med boast beautiful beaches that offer a retreat from the bustling urban life that lies just beyond the sand.
As Spain’s second-largest city, Barcelona is a cultural wonderland of fantastic food and eye-popping architecture. But its prime position on the Catalonian coast means it’s also blessed with a wealth of stunning beaches. Barceloneta is probably the best known of the bunch. Located near the Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas, it’s a great choice if you want a true urban beach experience – buzzy and boisterous. For something a little quieter, head just a little further north to Nova Icària beach, where you’ll find more tranquil stretches of sand. The beach was created for the 1992 Olympic Games, and today it’s a popular choice for families.
