A wide range of cruises to Portugal are available on a selection of exciting cruise itineraries.
Portugal may not be the largest country, but it's wonderful climate and terrific diversity matches anything else across Europe, making it a fantastic addition to any cruise itinerary, as there's always a port to suit all types of travellers.
Cruises to Portugal are included as part of a number of itineraries. Some are dedicated Iberian cruises, focusing on the region along with northern Spain. Mediterranean cruises often call at a Portuguese port, in particular, those travelling from the UK, along with any cruises heading to the Canary Islands. The ports are also often visited as part of transatlantic cruises.
Take a look through the many cruises to Portugal that we have available, with a great selection of cruise operators offering a mix of mini-breaks and longer holidays. Each wonderful Portuguese port available on current itineraries offers plenty of interesting things to see and do.
Portimao is a port on the Algarve, on the south coast of the country. It's a tranquil location ideal for a touch of relaxation and is home to some fascinating monuments and buildings as well. Portimao acts as a gateway for many quaint towns, with shore excursions taking you into Lagos, Silves, Monchique and more.
You can also explore the Algarve Mountains, or visit the Sagres Fortress held in the 15th century. There are a number of museums and castles open to the public too.
Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal and a popular port for a range of cruise lines. Built over seven hills, it offers a mix of historic landmarks, buildings and streets with a range of more contemporary attractions to create a lively and varied port city. See the Jeronimos Monastery, a Gothic masterpiece, along with the Belem Tower. Wander through ancient streets or take a tram ride and see all of these sights and more. If you want a more contemporary experience, then there are also many boutique shops and restaurants to enjoy across the city.
Leixoes is a port situated a few miles from the major city of Porto, with most shore excursions here focusing on the city. This is another thriving metropolis with many historic and modern attractions to visit, but one of the main reasons people love to visit the region is as part of a wine tour or dedicated wine cruise. The area is famous for its port wine and there are numerous excursions that offer wine tasting sessions or tours of some of the nearby vineyards.
Further afield, but still a part of Portugal, is the port of Funchal on the island of Madeira. It's a popular calling point on Canary Islands cruises, as well as transatlantic sailings, as it's one of the most westerly points in Europe. There's some beautiful natural scenery to explore by foot, jeep or cable car, as well as interesting buildings and man-made gardens like the Monte Palace Gardens. Alternatively, you can take a boat trip where you may be lucky enough to spot dolphins and whales in the ocean waters.
