Awesome Day at Sea

Sailing on Valiant Lady with Atlantis is unlike any cruise experience we’ve ever created. Explore her striking design and unique places to play. Let us entertain you in unexpected ways everywhere you turn. And of course, join friends old and new on the dance floor at our spectacular T-dance!

Cadiz (Seville)

There are probably no more famous streets in the world than those in the capital city of Andausia. Breathtakingly beautiful Seville is the 4th largest city in Spain, founded as a Roman town and now features a unique mix of Roman and Moorish architecture, alongside remarkable modern buildings. Visit the lavish St. Mary of the See Cathedral, one of the largest medieval and Gothic buildings in the world, or the sweeping grounds of Plaza de España. Just don’t miss a chance to indulge in the city’s unique tapas scene.

And if you don’t want to take the hour trek to Seville, Cadiz, is an outstanding introduction to Andalucia. The charming old quarter in Cadiz makes it easy to see why this small seaside town is frequented by Spaniards on holiday.


The capital of Spain’s Costa del Sol welcomes over 6 million tourists each year to Malaga’s powder-white beaches, Picasso Museum, and inviting old town. Walk up the hill to city’s 2 massive hilltop citadels, the Alcazaba and ruined Gibralfaro, remnants of Moorish rule. Or head over to nearby Marbella, one of the most beautiful and inviting port cities in the Med.

For a spectacular once-in-a-lifetime experience, head up the palace of Alhambra in legendary Granada. Our late stay lets you do it all!

At Sea/Ibiza

Everyone has their own opinion of Ibiza, and it’s the one place that truly has something for everyone. From the world’s best nightlife to some of Spain’s most isolated and quiet beaches, it’s an island that lets you create your own playground. We’ll arrive at night, in time for a walk through the streets of the old town of Dalt Vila, a drink on the terrace, and a visit to one of the legendary nightclubs. Or just watch the parade of craziness!

We’ll have time the following day to enjoy one of the magnificent beaches with tours to the gay beach at Els Salinas. Or explore on your own to one of the islands many charming villages. No matter what you do, It’s hard not to fall in love with Ibiza’s many charms.


Today is a day for seeing the other side of Ibiza.  After last night's fabulousness, maybe a relaxing day on the beach is in order and Ibiza has plenty of them, ranging from the electric gay beach at Els Salinas to quiet coves scattered along the island's ruggest coast.

Take some time to wander through Dalt Vila during the day. Or explore on your own to one of the islands many charming villages. It's all here for you and easy to reach with our extra-long visit.

Palma de Mallorca

Gorgeous, accessible Palma is just the beginning of Mallorca’s charm. It’s immense Gothic cathedral, moored like the prow of a great ship on the Mediterranean's edge or its astounding galleries are just a tip of the iceberg. If the sights don't grab you, the soulful sea views, fabulous food and happening bar scene surely will. Need a breather? Within minutes you can be at a hilltop castle or stretched out on a beach. No wonder it’s a favorite of travelers from around the world!


We return to the Med's most gay-friendly city as Barcelona begins to celebrate summer. Spend a few days exploring all that this magnificenet beachfront city has to offer, or take a tour further afield to the wine regions of Penedes, the beaches of Costa Brava, or the historical sites of Girona. It's all right here and easy to reach in less than a day.

Atlantis will offer both post-cruise tours and accommodations to create some magical moments you've never imagined.

Atlantis does not recommend flights before 11 am from the Barcelona airport if you are flying out on July 10.

Every fabulously original restaurant is included with more choices than any other ship at sea.
