Why should youngsters have all the fun on Ibiza? The island has much more to offer than wild nightclubs and dance music, as guests on Saga Sapphire’s all-inclusive Viva España! cruise can discover.

After a day exploring Ibiza’s port and the cobbled streets of Dalt Vila, or relaxing on superb beaches, a chill-out party on deck provides a fitting farewell to the island of pleasure.

Drinks are included in the cruise price – selected wines at lunch and dinner, house-branded spirits, draught beer, lager, all mixers and soft drinks – so there’s every reason to party!

Spanish lessons, a flamenco display and tapas demonstrations are other diversions on the autumn sunshine cruise, which reveals the different characteristics of Spanish regions as well as visiting the North African coast.

A call to Barcelona offers art and culture from Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces to museums dedicated to Picasso and Joan Miró, while Valencia is the home of paella and nearby Xativa Castle counts Hannibal among its previous visitors.

Huelva was rebuilt after a 1755 earthquake thanks to the British Rio Tinto mining company, and features rows of mock-Tudor semis that would not look out of place in Britain, and in La Coruña, Galicia, ancient and modern meet with pristine beaches, 12th-century cobbles, quirky shopping, the monumental science museum and the ‘Tower of Hercules’ Roman lighthouse, with stunning views over the city.

Saga Sapphire also visits the Spanish autonomous city of Ceuta, on the Moroccan coast, where astonishing fortifications reflect a turbulent history, and Oran, Algeria, a melting pot of culture and birthplace of Rai folk music.

*Money back guarantee
Saga is so confident that first-time guests will love life on board its award-winning cruise ships that it is offering early flights home and a refund of the cruise fare to anyone who does not enjoy the sailing.

Price Promise (Saga Pearl II, Saga Sapphire and Spirit of Discovery only): Should we ever reduce our prices or bring in a new special offer after you book (optional ad-hoc services are excluded), we’ll work out the difference and pass the value of the saving back to you. This applies as long as the discounted holiday is exactly the same package offered under exactly the same terms of sale (which means the full terms that apply to your holiday contract, including your cabin grade and whether your cabin is allocated at the time of booking or at embarkation). In calculating any possible saving due, we’ll take into consideration all offers and discounts that were applied at the time of booking and compare the overall price that you’ve been charged with the current price. We will pass on the value of the saving in the form of a higher grade cabin, on-board credit or other value added benefit
