Morocco is a fascinating country rich in culture, with iconic attractions and a lively atmosphere that make it a wonderful destination for any cruise holiday.
Morocco cruises give you the opportunity to sample some of the highlights, letting you get an authentic look at the country's modern life as well as its long heritage.
These cruises all head to the port of Casablanca, which is also the largest city in the country. However this isn't the only place you can visit as a number of excursions are available with all the major cruise lines to let you travel to other cities of interest, including Marrakech and Rabat.
There are some great attractions in the country, meaning you should definitely give plenty of consideration to Morocco cruises when planning your holiday. Here we cover some of the major attractions that you can find, while you'll be able to browse the current deals we have available on this page.
One of the major things that Morocco is renowned for is its markets. Known as souks, these open-air markets are filled with spice shops, carpet makers, local foods and crafts and many other items, and Casablanca has some excellent and lively souks to enjoy. Enjoy the opportunity to barter for lower prices in a fun and exciting atmosphere.
If you want something more sedate then there are a number of mosques and other ornate buildings that you can visit, along with many historic landmarks and monuments. Casablanca mixes its heritage with modern commerce in a fascinating way. In particular, the Mahakma Law Courts are beautifully designed with mosaic decorations and carved ceilings along with a stunning fountain in the main courtyard.
Rabat is home to some wonderful landmarks well worthy of a visit, including the famous Mausoleum of King Mohammed, the great king of Morocco. The stunning white Alaouite creation was completed in 1971 and it has a green roof, seen as the colour of Islam. Opposite the Mausoleum on the Tacoub al-Mansour esplanade is the Hassan Tower, a minaret that was built in the 12th Century to be part of a mosque that was never completed. See this historic wonder, including walls that are eight-feet thick and interior ramps big enough for a horseback rider.
Just outside Rabat are the ruins of Chellah, an abandoned Roman town that was very prosperous before the 9th Century. You can also pay a visit to the Rabat Archeological Museum, which showcases some amazing artefacts from the country dating back all the way to the paleolithic Neanderthal ages.
Marrakech is just as famous for its souks as Casablanca, if not more so, making them definitely worth a visit on any excursion to the city with the Djemaa-el-F'na square a lively central point where you can see snake charmers along with local sellers. It's also home of the El Bahia Palace, a beautiful 19th Century building, while a visit to the Saadian Tombs makes for a truly interesting experience. For a peaceful escape, head to the beautiful Majorelle Gardens.
