On this unique Tango cruise, we can expect a lot of variety for the best travel time. Beginning of September can be expected with pleasant temperatures both on the Atlantic and in the Mediterranean.
From Amsterdam, we travel across the Basque Country and Galicia in Spain, the north of Portugal and the sunny Ibiza to Barcelona.
We visit beautiful cities such as Bilbao, La Coruna, as well as Porto and Lisbon and we can relax day at seas and take a break from everyday life. Thus, recovery is announced on this ten-day trip.
The Tango is of course always there, as well as the sea view ...

Our journey begins in Amsterdam. Incidentally, in the city of the canals, it is quite appropriate to extend a few days. First, we can relax one day on our ship before we reach Bilbao in the Basque Country.
This vital and vibrant city is world famous, especially for the Guggenheim Museum. This is definitely worth a visit because of its unique architecture and numerous exhibitions can be visited in this fascinating building. By the way, a stroll through the pedestrian precinct can turn into a culinary highlight in Bilbao, because the typical Basque "Pintxos" are presented and offered in the many cozy bars everywhere.
Our next port is La Coruna in Galicia. From here you can take a trip to Santiago de Compostela, a destination of the Way of St. James. The historic center has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The most impressive thing about this millennial city is undoubtedly the cathedral and numerous palaces, as well as the many winding lanes and picturesque squares of the old town. Maybe a spontaneous outdoor milonga offers here ...
Let's enjoy another day at sea before we reach Leixoes, the port of Porto. Especially through the picturesque Ribeira district worth a leisurely stroll through the city and you feel the flair of old times. The highlight is certainly the visit to the famous Palacio da Bolsa, the stock exchange palace. Porto is of course also eponym for the port wine, which is stored in the huge cellars along the Douro River.
Our next port is Lisbon, often called the "Pearl of the Atlantic": splendid palaces and monasteries bear witness to colonial splendor, picturesque streets and dreamy squares enchant in the winding old town. Lisbon is built on seven hills and offers especially from the castle Sao Jorge a beautiful view of the river Tejo.
The next day is another day of sea and we can enjoy the ambiance aboard our ship and relax by the swimming pool. Now we reach the Mediterranean Sea and spend a day in Cartagena in southern Spain, known for its Roman Forum and its old town with numerous Art Nouveau buildings. Let's look forward to a day of swimming in Ibiza with its fine, fine sandy beaches before we reach Barcelona.
Barcelona is one of the most important cultural cities in the world. To "only" visit the buildings of Gaudí, one could spend several days here. Art Nouveau, Gothic and modern architecture provide a unique blend worth discovering. Since Barcelona is our last port, we must now say goodbye to our "home on the sea".
