Today after a hearty breakfast you will make port in your first Destination, 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.

Lisbon's compact size makes it a European gem, rich in inviting shops, cafes, and historic landmarks. Enjoy the city's allure and captivating atmosphere.
Back on shore today as the ship makes port in Cadiz. Boasting thousands of years of history it has been one of Spain’s most important coastal cities for much of the country’s past. One of the spiritual homes of flamenco, it’s a city with a unique character and visible Arabic heritage, ensuring it’s an enchanting stop on your cruise. Almost entirely surrounded by water, Cadiz is one of the Iberian Peninsula’s hidden gems and a favourite amongst many Spanish travellers. The locals are known for their welcoming, down-to-earth character and the city’s restaurants are seafood specialists, so make sure you sit down for some fresh fish before you leave. For the more adventurous the port of Cadiz is only 90 minutes away from Seville. Limitless will not be taking the guests into Seville as Cadiz is much more accessible, however we would be happy to speak to anyone that would like to go and advise how to arrange this with the cruise line directly.
