23 Night Cruise sailing from Barcelona to Reykjavik aboard Star Legend.

Venture from warm Mediterranean shores to Iceland’s turquoise-tinged ice floes and stark white glaciers during this remarkable 23-day journey along the most scenic coastlines in Western Europe. Browse shops, tapas bars, and cluttered kiosks along Barcelona’s arboreal Las Ramblas pedestrian mall. Learn the difference between Fino, Pedro Ximénez and Manzanilla sherries while sampling at a winery tasting room near Cádiz, Spain. Sip dark, sweet, blackberry-like port at a waterfront café along the Douro River in Porto, Portugal. Tour the Guinness Brewery in Dublin and master the perfect pour. Explore Iceland’s lesser-known ports and capture breathtaking imagery of azure-hued ice floes at the Jokulsarion Glacier Lagoon in Djupivogur. Your remarkable journey concludes in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, a stylish nexus for indie music and home to more published writers per capita than any country in the world.

Highlights of this cruise:

Barcelona
Old meets new in this sunny Catalan metropolis, where narrow alleyways contrast with grand boulevards.

Mallorca
Mallorca is steep, green, and fringed with enticing coves and more than 200 lush beaches. But all that natural beauty is just the beginning. Hear whispers of Chopin in Valldemossa’s monastery where he and George Sand once spent time. Watch the street performers on the piazza around the church, or cross the island to beautiful Sóller.

Almeria
Enjoy a walking tour of this ancient city (no vehicles are allowed within its walls). If you prefer, opt for a beautiful drive through the Andalusian countryside to Granada and the magnificent Alhambra Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in the 14th century, this breathtaking example of Moorish architecture combines intricate mosaics and stone-cast latticework in a tapestry of grace and sophistication unparalleled in western civilization. Don’t miss the breathtaking Generalife Gardens nearby – also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Malaga
Here, on the shores of Costa del Sol, the Andalusian spirit thrives. Be sure to include an optional visit to see the brilliant and comprehensive collection of Picasso’s work at Museo Picasso Málaga, a tribute to this artistic genius in the city of his birth. Or you may choose to opt for a visit to the beautiful village of Mijas, where picturesque Andalusian country life creates some of the world’s best wines.

Gibraltar
It’s an odd bit of Britain here at the toe of Spain, with monkeys and miles of tunnels as well as traditional red phone boxes. Legend says Gibraltar was one of the two pillars erected by Hercules to mark the edge of the world. Take the cable car to the top to see if you can see it from here. No, that’s not it. That’s just Africa. What a view.

Portimao
Follow the savory aroma of sardines grilling to the colorful quay, or let your lust for leather lead you to the old town’s shops and 18th century buildings. In ancient Silves, once a Moorish capital, the castle and cathedral are right next to each other in town. How thoughtful of them to make sightseeing so easy.

Lisbon
The rhythm of Lisbon invites you to join its beguiling dance. Elegant outdoor cafés line the cobbled sidewalks. Turn-of-the-century funiculars climb the scenic hills. And, everywhere, the city engages you with its easy style and remarkable charm.

Ferrol
After entering the estuary mouth, pass through a narrow canal where the twin castles of San Felipe and La Palma welcome you to what was the main base for the Spanish Navy in the 17th century. Spend a pleasant day rumbling around the old Magdalena neighborhood, or make your own pilgrimage to the nearby UNESCO site of Santiago de Compostela or head to Lugo to see the Roman Walls – another UNESCO site.

Fishguard
Welcome to the Gateway to West Wales and stunning Pembrokeshire National Park. This beautiful area provides breathtaking moments around every bend of the path as you cruise a coastline acclaimed as the world’s best and most beautiful. Don’t miss an optional visit to storybook Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII or Picton Castle with its 40 acres of gardens. Or head for the National Botanic Garden of Wales, where extensive waterscapes and the world’s largest single-span greenhouse (larger than a football field) frame a dazzling display of flora.

Belfast
Probably best known as the birthplace of the Titanic, Belfast was a hub for not only shipbuilding but also tobacco processing, rope-making and Irish linen in the early 20th century. Today the old shipyards are giving way to luxury apartments in what is known as the Titanic Quarter, home to the Titanic Belfast Centre, a beautiful star-shaped building covering the Titanic’s construction. Other must-sees include the Ulster Folk Museum and the Belfast Cathedral, as well as numerous award-winning restaurants and bars.

Heimaey
Witness a world still in transition. Circle Surtsey Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which rose from the sea in the 1960s. Next up, Heimaey, where a volcanic eruption created a modern-day Pompeii in 1973.

Reykjavik
The world’s most northerly capital enjoys almost 24-hour sunlight in summer, all the better to show off the city’s eclectic architecture and dazzling natural wonders. Soak in the milky Blue Lagoon, visit Guilfoss Waterfall, find Pingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site , or explore the surprisingly vibrant local museum and art scene.

With only 212 guests, a Star Legend cruise will make you feel like you’re on board your own private yacht almost as soon as you step aboard.

The sitting area of your spacious, newly refurbished suite gives you an expansive ocean view — making it a welcome retreat.

When you’re ready to make an appearance, the lounges, club, casino and library are waiting to be explored. Take some “you” time in the tranquil WindSpa . . . enjoy a dip in the pool . . . work off that decadent dessert in the Fitness Center . . . and, of course, you are always welcome to visit the Bridge to examine navigation charts with the Captain.

Star Legend is large enough to pamper and entertain you, yet small enough to tuck into delightful tiny harbors and hidden coves that others can’t reach.

RENOVATION IN 2020
Starting 02/20/2020, this all-suite ship will undergo a complete renovation as part of the $250 Million Star Plus Initiative to provide more of what our guests love. New public areas, including a two new dining venues, a new spa, infinity pool, and fitness area. The ship also boasts all new bathrooms in every suite and a new category of Star suites, featuring a new layout. With ocean-views and over 277 square feet of comfort, Star Legend is the perfect ship to watch glaciers and fjords drift by from the serenity of your suite.

Carrying only 312 guests (after rennovation), Star Legend still tucks into small ports like Le Lavandou and Wrangell or narrow waterways like the Corinth and Keil Canal. We can’t wait to welcome you onboard for your next 180 degree from ordinary adventure!
