Ports

  • Lisbon

    Lisbon is the capital as well as the largest city in Portugal. It is one of the oldest cities in the world. Lisbon has two sites listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Sites: Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery. The city stretches along the banks of the Tejo river. This is primarily an embark/debark port of call for SeaDream.

  • Porto

    Straddling the mouth of the Douro River, the splendid city of Oporto holds such architectural importance that the entire historic center has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. A great place to begin your exploration is Praça da Liberdade, a lengthy public esplanade lined with graceful 19th-century buildings. You’ll find the city has no shortage of marvelous churches, from the imposingly fortified Porto Cathedral to the graciously appointed Clérigos Church, whose soaring bell tower offers panoramic vistas over the city’s picturesque red-tile roofs. In the 1906 Lello Bookstore, prepare to be swept away by elaborate art nouveau features including a sinuous double staircase and a luminous stained-glass skylight. But what’s a visit to Oporto without sampling its signature export, the fortified wine that shares the city’s name. Tour one of the illustrious cellars dotting the Douro’s southern bank, where port is crafted just as it has been for centuries, and savor exquisite samples of the sweet libation. When evening comes, take advantage of Oporto’s reputation as the best place to eat in Portugal, perhaps choosing among the delectable cod dishes for which the city is renowned.

  • A Coruna (Spain)

    On the northwesternmost corner of Spain lies La Coruña, a distinguished city favored by history for its strategically important placement. Its most prized landmark is the 2nd-century Tower of Hercules, the world’s oldest Roman lighthouse still in use, a colossal structure that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Stroll through graceful María Pita Square, named for the revered 16th-century Coruñan woman who inspired a successful counterattack on Sir Francis Drake’s intimidating English Armada. At the spectacular Aquarium Finisterre, gaze at myriad undersea creatures through massive glass panes, perhaps continuing your exploration of the city’s striking shoreline at the formidable San Antón Castle, a terrifically preserved 16th century fortification. Should you strike out to the lovely countryside, quaint villages such as Betanzos will delight you with houses that showcase the region’s distinctive glass-paned balconies. Don’t forget to visit one of La Coruña’s inviting tabernas, where excellent seafood is complemented by the lively conversation of friendly locals.

  • At Sea

  • Bordeaux

    Bordeaux is a port city on the Garonne River in the Gironde department in southwestern France. The city of Bordeaux, with a population of 239,157 inhabitants in 2010, is the ninth largest city in France; its metropolitan area is the sixth largest in France, with a population of 1,127,776. It is the capital of the Aquitaine region, as well as the prefecture of the Gironde department. Its inhabitants are called "Bordelais" (for men) or "Bordelaises" (women). The term "Bordelais" may also refer to the city and its surrounding region. Bordeaux is the world's major wine industry capital. It is home to the world's main wine fair, Vinexpo (fr), while the wine economy in the metro area takes in 14.5 billion euros each year. Bordeaux wine has been produced in the region since the 8th century. The historic part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as "an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble" of the 18th century.

  • Saint-Malo

    Saint-Malo was heavily bombed during World War II, but you won’t be able to tell as you wander among the painstakingly reconstructed granite mansions of this stately city. Enclosed by a forbidding defensive wall, Saint-Malo was once notorious as a center of corsair mischief but also benefitted enormously from the Atlantic trade after the discovery of the New World, which endowed the city’s merchants with great wealth. The ramparts showcase several impressive gates, including the photogenically squat twin towers of the Grande Porte, and these days the streets enclosed within are alive with a multitude of tempting shops and inviting galleries. Further afield, you’ll discover two of the most magical villages in Brittany. Dinan is a perfect snapshot of the French Renaissance, a cluster of half-timbered homes whose charmingly askew façades are often festooned with blooming geraniums. Along the coast to the east, rising from a tidal flat like a mystical apparition, you’ll find iconic Mont Saint-Michel, possibly the most photographed hamlet in the world. As you ascend winding cobbled lanes to the town’s glorious Benedictine abbey, you’ll appreciate why this medieval jewel has earned UNESCO World Heritage site designation.

  • Guernsey, Channel Islands

    Boasting an immensely picturesque coastline, the Channel Island of Guernsey has long attracted artists such as Auguste Renoir to its welcoming shores. In the capital of St. Peter Port, wander through commanding Castle Cornet, a 13th-century marvel of military engineering that sits on a rocky headland jutting out at sea. Admire some of the earliest heated glass houses at the Candie Gardens, whose elegantly landscaped grounds are laid out with Victorian thoughtfulness and contemplate Victor Hugo’s not entirely uncomfortable exile at Hauteville House, the splendid manor where he wrote Les Miserables. Hop on a bicycle to explore the picturesque hills and dales of the island, perhaps riding past a herd of the island’s famed namesake cows, and revitalize at an authentic tea house, where age-old traditions are carefully observed. For that perfect keepsake, shop along cobbled streets overflowing with charm, maybe pausing at a fresh-caught seafood restaurant for a taste of the island’s famed crab. No matter how you choose to spend your time, the leisurely pace of life in delightful Guernsey will replenish your spirit.

  • Dartmouth

    Once a notorious sanctuary for unprincipled privateers, Dartmouth has left its turbulent past behind in exchange for a serenely picturesque atmosphere. You’ll find the incredibly photogenic Dartmouth Castle, a compact but well-preserved crenellated fortification, guarding the scenic mouth of the Dart River. The town’s wonderful harbor is also postcard-worthy, with fishing boats bobbing in the shimmering water and a hodge-podge of narrow houses climbing up a gentle hill. For a genuine English country village feel, browse the one-of-a-kind shops and galleries along Foss Street, which makes its way upward to the gracious 14th-century St. Saviour’s Church. Admire the grand Edwardian architecture of the Dartmouth Royal Naval College, which has been training young cadets since 1905, and on public days enjoy a tour of the elegant inner rooms. To experience the wonders of the bygone industrial age, travel via authentic steam train along the scenic coast of Devon or ply the Dart River aboard the United Kingdom’s only completely restored coal-fired paddle steamer. Back in Dartmouth, drop by the Cherub Inn, which is housed in an enchantingly uneven 14th-century wood-beam house, and make some new friends among the welcoming locals.

  • London

    Synonymous with royalty, London is a living testament to the lofty achievements of the mighty kings and queens that have presided over this storied island nation. Witness the changing of the guard at gracious Buckingham Palace, a cherished custom that is both timeless and precisely on time, and tour the Houses of Parliament, the city’s other magnificently ornate center of power and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Cross the iconic Tower Bridge on your way to view the utterly dazzling Crown Jewels, which are kept in the once-forbidding Tower of London, another UNESCO site. After refreshing with a pint of beer at a classic English pub, sample the best of contemporary art at the essential Tate Modern, which is housed in a former brick power station. Next door, you’ll find the faithful reconstruction of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, where Romeo and Juliet can keep falling in love for eternity. Stroll through immaculately manicured Hyde Park, shop in tony Covent Garden and take in the entire city from the London Eye observation wheel, as the resonant chimes of Big Ben comfort both Londoners and visitors with time-honored tones known the world over.
