LUXURY PORTUGAL CRUISES
When guests visit Portugal on a Seabourn luxury cruise they can experience the beauty of the ports of Lisbon, Madeira, Porto and Portimão. In Lisbon, guests can see the sights via UNESCO Partner tours, sample port wine and take in exceptional art from the Portuguese discoveries. Madeira can be experienced by e-bike, cable car & toboggan or 4x4. For those who want a more relaxed day, there’s high tea at the beautiful Reid’s Palace Hotel. The Algarve can be visited from the port of Portimão. There, guests can go on a horseback adventure, taste local food or visit the countryside by 4WD. Visit Porto to visit a winery, partake in local tapas or have a tuk-tuk adventure through Oporto.
Funchal (Madeira), Portugal
Madeira was important to Portugal for its sugar production and late for the cultivation of wine. Its mild, spring-like climate and extraordinary scenery still attract visitors.
Horta, Azores, Portugal
Pretty Horta welcomes visitors as it has since the 15th century. See the museum of scrimshaw in the Café Sport, and the Regional Museum’s scale models carved out of fig pits.
Spread over seven hills by the Tagus River, Lisbon is one of Europe's smallest capitals but considered by many visitors to be one of the most likeable, with a variety of faces.
Leixoes (Porto), Portugal
The city of Oporto straddles the Douro River, which carries the harvest of grapes from the vineyards to the world-famous port wine producers, where the wine is made and aged.
Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel, Azores, Portugal
The triple-arched gates of the city welcome you. Visit the Gothic Church of San Sebastian, the Carlos Machado Museum, or the bi-colored volcanic crater lakes at Sete Cidades.
