Join this unique and intimate nine-day itinerary showcasing the ancient ports and sea routes once plied by Phoenician triremes and Roman galleys. Cruise from the fabled coast of Morocco to the sun-washed Canary Islands aboard the exclusively chartered, 90-passenger small ship M.S. SERENISSIMA. With a port call every day and an included excursion in each port, balanced by ample leisure time, this unparalleled combination of Moorish treasures and natural beauty features seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, five UNESCO biosphere reserves, idyllic ports rarely visited by larger ships and the timeless monuments of two dynamic yet ancient societies—the Spanish and the Moors. Contemplate the contrast of ancient and modern while exploring the cosmopolitan city of Casablanca and medieval Marrakech and its medina quarter. Call on seldom-visited islands, where you can appreciate otherworldly landscapes that inspired painters, gaze into a 6000-foot-deep caldera carpeted with lush subtropical vegetation and walk beside picturesque Spanish colonial architecture. An Imperial Rabat and Fez pre-cruise option and a Madrid post-cruise Option are available.
