A sun-soaked sailing with an award-winning cruise line, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, an English-speaking cruise escort and more

If you love to soak up the sun, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Portugal and Spain. The latter’s Costa del Sol got that name for a reason – much of the year, it’s completely drenched in warm, soft sunshine – and Lisbon, Ronda, Cadiz and Jerez de la Frontera also offer frequently mild weather and a sunny lifestyle to match. On an eight-day, seven-night escape with Variety Cruises, a USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice 2016 boutique cruise line and Tourism Awards Gold 2016 winner, you’ll travel from the Portuguese capital to Spain’s Málaga and stop at the above and other southern-Spanish and -Portuguese destinations.

If you like, you can start in Málaga and make your way to Portugal instead – it’s up to you. Either way, there will be optional visits to such sights as the Alhambra, the Moorish castle complex at Portimao, Seville’s Alcazar Palace, Gibraltar and Ronda’s cliffs. But you’ll also love the unscheduled time, with the opportunity to hang out on the elegant Harmony G and to explore your enchanting destinations at your own pace. Take a stroll among the old-city blocks or bustling promenades; sit down for a sangria; munch on tapas or pasteis de Belem; or, after your Portimao excursion, stake out a spot on the beach to stretch out. May we suggest a sun salute?
