Day 8 | Cruising: Gibraltar, UK Territory

12 noon – 6 pm. Sitting at the southern tip of Spain where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic, the tiny British colony of Gibraltar marked the end of the known world in ancient times. The famous Barbary apes are a notable attraction here; they are Europe's only wild monkeys and are considered a symbol of British rule. Shore excursions highlight the village of Catalan Bay, Europa Point and its lighthouse and the enormous cavern known as St. Michael's Cave.

Day 9 | Cruising: Fun day at sea

Day 10 | Cruising: Nice & Villefranche, France

9 am – 6 pm. Villefranche is set on a wooded hillside overlooking the Cote d'Azur. Shore excursions take passengers to Cannes, Nice or Monte Carlo, or you can easily visit these Riviera gems on your own via train. Those who choose to spend the day in Villefranche will find medieval chapels scattered throughout the village and an impressive 16th-century hilltop fortress. Another worthwhile sight is the Chapelle St. Pierre with its frescoes by Jean Cocteau. Nice has long been established as a popular resort town and rightly so, with its graceful blend of Old World charm and elegant sophistication. Many tourists find the Promenade des Anglais and the colorful square in the old town to be two of the city's finest sights. The museums here are superb, including the Musee Chagall, the Musee Matisse, the International Museum of Naïve Art and the Beaux-Arts Museum.

Day 11 | Cruising: Rome, Italy

7 pm – 7 pm. In the Eternal City of Rome, Italy you can explore some of the world's most famous churches, monuments and fountains: the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel, Vatican City, the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain (toss a coin in the fountain to ensure your return). Sip cappuccino at a cafe in a piazza or window-shop among the high-fashion boutiques of Via Condotti. Rome is served by the port city of Civitavecchia, located approximately 50 miles away.

Day 12 | Cruising: Tuscany, Italy  / Florence / Pisa

7 am – 7 pm. From the port city of Livorno, Italy, the riches of this remarkable region are revealed. A trip to Florence, with a stop at the leaning Tower of Pisa en route, provides some unforgettable experiences, including the Piazza del Duomo with its grand cathedral. Florence is home to the fascinating art treasures of the Italian Renaissance -- works by Botticelli, Da Vinci and Michelangelo. A highlight is a visit to the Accademia Gallery, which houses Michelangelo's famous statue of David.

Day 13 | Cruising: Genoa & Italian Riviera

7 am – 3 pm. Italy's largest port is often described as a city of layers. The lower layer is the harbor area with its ships, dance halls and bars; the middle layer comprises the colorful shops and restaurants, the opera house and the Via Garibaldi; and the upper layer is a crest of hills etched with winding roads. Most city tours visit the house where Christopher Columbus was born, the Cathedral of San Lorenzo and the largest medieval quarter in Europe.

Day 14 | Cruising: Fun day at sea

Day 15 | Cruising: Malaga & Costa del Sol, Spain

9:30 am – 4 pm. Malaga is a peaceful port on Spain's famous Costa del Sol. Visitors can spend time in the seaside cafes and stroll the palm-lined waterfront. The Moorish fortresses and the Museo de Bellas Artes, home to some of Picasso's paintings, are among the most prominent attractions here. An excursion to the interior offers views of the mountain villages of Mijas and the grand Alhambra castle.

Day 16 | Cruising: Lisbon, Portugal

12 noon – 7:30 pm. Classic squares and boulevards and extravagant castles and cathedrals make for some striking photographs in this stately Portugal city on the Tagus River. Tourists can savor the sights from St. George's Castle or from one of many overlooks. Excursions often feature the monument to Prince Henry the Navigator, a visit to the ancient Alfama district, a stop at Sintra National Palace and the Royal Palace at Queluz, and a port wine tasting.
