15-day Cruise on Norwegian Star

Transatlantic: Spain & Brazil

from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

There's nothing more exciting that an intercontinental journey! And with this specific itinerary, you'll get to touch land on 3 different continents. While still in South America, you must check out the views from the Lacerda Elevator during your visit of Salvador De Bahia. On your way to Europe, we'll make a day stop in Africa where you'll be amazed to find the rolling sand dunes of the Sahara... in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean in Cape Verde. Your first stop on European land will be on the exotic Canary Islands. Here, you can visit the Pyramids of Guimar in Tenerife. These lava stone structures are said to have been a stopping point for voyagers between ancient Egypt and the Mayan Civilization. Then in Cartagena, Spain let your taste buds wander with a "mojarra" - a deliciously crispy fried fish with coconut rice, usually served with golden fried plantains and a simple salad.

Port of Call
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • /sites/default/files/mi-rio-121714.jpg

Christ the Redeemer, one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World, stands atop the Corcovado peak. Survey the city from a platform below the 125-foot statue or hop on a cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and get a different perspective of Rio and the Christ. Feel a rush to your senses from the awesome activity on world-famous beaches Ipanema and Copacabana. If the quiet side of Rio is what you seek, a visit to the lush botanical garden - home to some 8,000 species - will delight you.

Port of Call
Salvador De Bahia, Brazil
  • /sites/default/files/1440-Salvador-Bahia-Port-Image.jpg

Salvador is one of the Americas' oldest colonial cities, having been founded in 1549 by the Portuguese as Brazil's first capital. Today the city still showcases Portuguese colonial architecture, and you can discover interesting historic sites and monuments while exploring. Salvador has a deep Afro-Brazilian heritage that's reflected in the local music, cuisine and other traditions you can experience. And with more than 50 miles of beaches in the area, there's no shortage of scenic spots where you can recline into relaxation.

Port of Call
Fortaleza, Brazil
  • /sites/default/files/FOR-Port-Image-1440.jpg

As one of Brazil's largest cities, Fortaleza is humming with a wide range of experiences and landmarks awaiting your exploration. Stroll among the shops, restaurants and historic buildings of the main city square, Praça do Ferreira, or discover one of the largest urban parks in South America with a visit to the lush Cocó Ecological Park. The city's picturesque coastline is an aquatic playground for both visitors and locals. From kite and wind surfing to catamaran tours, you can explore Fortaleza by land and by sea.

Port of Call
Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands
  • /sites/default/files/TCI_port_modal.jpg

Located at the eastern tip of the island of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, Santa Cruz is a natural cruise destination as over half of its perimeter is shoreline. The beaches are lovely at that, from the yellow sands of Las Teresitas to the black sands of the quieter, clothing-optional Las Gaviotas. There's also plenty to do and see inland, especially if you're here during the spectacular Carnival.

Port of Call
Funchal, Madeira
  • /sites/default/files/MI-FNC-shutterstock_76848064.jpg

The mountainous isle of Madeira has been a popular European destination for years. The idyllic island is perfect for exploring with its beautiful beaches, stunning lava formed landscapes and lush, green forests. But sampling the famed Madeira wines is also an absolute must. Explore more of Maderia on a European cruise!

Port of Call
Granada (Malaga), Spain
  • /sites/default/files/AGP_05_AmazingCavesOfNerja.jpg

The strategic position to the Mediterranean Sea has always made Malaga an attractive zone for foreign invasions. From Malaga, a trip to Granada showcases an intriguing blend of Arab and European cultures. Be sure to visit The Alhambra, one of the finest examples of Moorish art in Spain.

Port of Call
Cartagena, Spain
  • /sites/default/files/mi-car-881.jpg

Along the Mediterranean coast of Spain lies a seaport that traces its history back to the Roman Empire. Today manicured promenades lined with palm trees lead you to ancient ruins surviving marvelously between modern-day buildings. This is an urban explorer's paradise. But whether you choose to marvel at archaeological discoveries at the museum of the Roman Theatre or stroll the picturesque Paseo Alfonso XII, you will eventually get hungry. At which point, you'll have delicious options in every direction of this historic port.

Port of Call
Barcelona, Spain
  • /sites/default/files/BCN_01_BarcelonaMonsterrat2.jpg

The capital of Catalonia, and one of its provinces, Barcelona, is a place of palpable history, where you can lose yourself strolling down the medieval streets of the Barri Gotic. It's a city designed to delight the senses: visit other-worldly Modernista churches like Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, or treat yourself at a street side cafe to Patatas Bravas or a Passion Fruit Mojito. Explore more of Barcelona on a European cruise!
