Bilbao, Spain

< >

Land Ahoy! Today after a hearty breakfast you will arrive in your first port. The Limitless team will be on hand to help everyone disembark and look around this beautiful location.

While Bilbao is undeniably a bustling working city, it has long been distinguished by its vibrant old town, which traces its origins back to the 14th century. Navigate the winding alleyways of the Casco Viejo, where you can pause to savor tapas at the numerous outstanding local bars and restaurants. Notable sights in this area include the arcaded Plaza Nueva and the Gothic Cathedral de Santiago. Housing one of Spain's most significant art collections, the Museo de Bellas Artes spans works from the 12th century to contemporary pieces by artists such as Cezanne, Gauguin, and Francis Bacon.

La Coruña - Spain

< >

Today has the ship dock in La Coruña. One of Galicia's major cities and a significant centre for the textiles and fashion industries, and the home the international mega-brand Zara and an array of captivating shops and boutiques

Beyond its shopping allure, La Coruña is a lively beach town renowned for its vibrant atmosphere, outstanding food scene, and some of the finest seafood in northern Spain. The ship docks just a brief seven-minute walk from the central Maria Pita square, where charming cafes, bars, and restaurants await. Additionally, you can catch a glimpse of the city's iconic Hercules Lighthouse.

Vigo, Spain

< >

Today you stay in Spain as you get the chance to visit Vigo. One of Spain's bustling fishing hubs, it is situated on the rugged west coast of the Galicia province. Throughout history, this charming town and its resilient residents have faced numerous naval attacks, including a couple led by Sir Francis Drake. Galicia's largest city is a dynamic modern metropolis, harmonising one of the world's busiest fishing ports with an atmospheric old quarter. It boasts numerous beautiful beaches at its doorstep and a vibrant nightlife scene featuring tapas bars, restaurants, and clubs.

The local seafood, considered among the best in Spain, benefits from the area's unique microclimate. Pulpo (octopus) holds the title of the local favourite, often enjoyed with glasses of Galician Albariño. For seafood enthusiasts, a visit to Ruá de Pescaderia (Fish Street) is a must, where Vigo's renowned women oyster sellers showcase their offerings.

Day At Sea
