Day One

Make your way to Bristol for embarkation and this evening's sailing.

Days Two and Three

Today is spent at sea, getting to know the ship and your fellow passengers.

Day Four

Discovery calls at the historic Portuguese capital Lisbon, from where adventurers set out in search of the New World during the great Age of Exploration. A shore excursion today will introduce the city, including the Alfama district, where time seems to stand still.

Day Five

You'll arrive on the southern coast of the Straits of Gibraltar today, in the fascinating Moroccan port of Tangier - at the meeting point of Europe and Africa. Spend time exploring the bustling, colourful souks of this, one of the world's most vibrant trading ports.

Day Six

The sun-blessed beaches and classic resorts of the Algarve welcome Discovery today. Spend time 'catching some rays' and head ashore to picturesque Portimao, with its pretty quayside and excellent shopping. Alternatively, join an excursion, perhaps into the wooded mountains of Monchique, with their ancient hill-top villages.

Day Seven

Another day is spent cruising in hopefully warm autumn sunshine.

Day Eight

Discovery makes a call at the port of A Coruna, or La Coruna. Step ashore to explore the atmospheric medieval quarter, stroll the extensive seafront promenade, or perhaps take a shore excursion to historic Santiago de Compostela.

Day Nine

A final day is spent at sea.

Day 10

Discovery arrives back in Bristol.
