Explore the Mediterranean aboard the Royal Caribbean Cruise ship ‘Independence of the Seas’.
Spain and France cruise from the UK highlights:
Southampton, England One of the world’s most famous ports. Southampton served as the launching point for the Mayflower as well as the Titanic. Today, it’s one of the busiest passenger ports.
The industrial port city of Bilbao is the political capital of the nationalistic Basque people, who inhabit Spain’s three northern provinces (an area known collectively as Euskadi). Bilbao does have some wonderful surprises to offer visitors, and there are plenty of attractions in the surrounding countryside as well as around the coast on the Bay of Biscay, which can be easily reached on excursions by rail or road.
The main attraction in the city is the controversial Guggenheim Museum, having been opened in 1997. The city fathers regard this avant-garde building as the beginning of Bilbao’s revitalisation. The city has also recently acquired a new metro system as well as airport terminal.
Bilbao has some good beaches as well as a few scenic spots. A favoured picnic site is on Monte Archanda, north of the old town, accessible by funicular. Of the beaches Getxo is the favourite, particularly with surfers, and also features a 100-year-old suspension bridge as well as some lively bars and nightclubs. Bilbao is an interesting, industrial city which is steadily increasing in popularity with tourists and also makes for a fantastic weekend getaway.
