We are teaming up with Atlas Ocean Voyages to charter their small luxury-expedition ship, the World Navigator exclusively for our Brand g guests. This remarkable vessel has been exquisitely designed to bring today’s discerning luxury travelers extraordinary cultural experiences and adventures to remote and fascinating destinations around the world.
Although the Strait of Gibraltar separates Spain and Morocco, they share a rich, common history. Our trip focuses on Mudéjar art, a mix of styles that appeared between the Moorish invasions and the Spanish Reconquista. Join us on a fascinating cruise under the golden sunshine in Andalusia to the lively atmosphere of the traditional Moroccan bazaars. Experience Tangier and its faded mongrel charm – not entirely Moroccan, European, or African but a blend of all three. Visit Rabat, the capital of Morocco, and its iconic landmark, the Hassan Tower. Explore Marrakech, with its snake charmers, fortune tellers, jugglers, and spice traders. Stroll the Arrecife with her golden sand beaches which are sheltered by a reef and a great selection of bars and restaurants. This unique luxe-adventure travel experience is customized just for you.

2024 Andalucia – Land of the Moors and more..
This luxury cruise is preceded by our Southern Spain land tour – 2024 Andalucia – Land of the Moors and more – Brand g Vacations. Guests participating in the land tour will be dropped at the ship for embarkation on the 7th of October.
7 – day, all LGBT +, all 5* luxury tour of Andalusia, Spain, including Seville, Ronda, Granada and Sacramento and many more Andalusian epic sites and historical gems.
Experience Andalusian culture where you can find the scent of orange blossom, the swish of a flamenco dress, the glimpse of a white village perched atop a crag. Immortalized in operas, art and literature; Andalucía often acts as a synonym for Spain as a whole: a sun-dappled, fiesta-loving land of guitar-wielding troubadours, reckless bullfighters, feisty operatic heroines and Roma singers wailing sad laments. While this simple portrait might be outdated, stereotypical and overly romantic, it does carry an element of truth. Andalucía, despite creeping modernization, remains a spirited and passionate place where the atmosphere sneaks up and envelops you when you least expect it – perhaps as you’re crammed into a buzzing tapas bar or lost in the depths of a flamenco performance.
Our tour includes three nights based in Seville, one of the world’s most historical cities in and three nights in beautiful Granada. Our bases will allow you to see the must-see attractions of the region and still relax and unpack.
