Holiday Overview

Whether you’re looking for a sun-soaked getaway or you want to learn a little more about Spain and Portugal’s west coast, our disabled friendly 12-night cruise is the perfect opportunity to experience some of Iberia’s holiday hotspots. Departing from Southampton, you’ll travel south aboard P&O’s world-class Iona cruise ship, enjoying all of the onboard facilities as you go. 

Your first stop will be Gibraltar, known in ancient times as the Pillars of Hercules, better known today for its infamous Barbary apes. It's then on to Alicante with its sophisticated Mediterranean feel and restored old town adding to its charm. Following this, you will head to the Catalonian capital of Barcelona with its eclectic mix of architecture including the famous Sagrada Familia, Europe's most extraordinary cathedral. Leaving Barcelona we'll remain in Spain and head to the romantic port of Cadiz. Almost entirely surrounded by water this pretty city gives an insight into Spain's Arabic Heritage. Your last port will be the pretty city of Lisbon Portugal. A Limitless favourite - make sure to sample the local Custard tarts!

Throughout your trip, you’ll be accompanied by the Limitless Team, who will provide care, support and assistance as and when you require it. On the ship, if required your cabin can be fully accessible, as are the vast majority of the Iona's other facilities. With 30 restaurants and bars, swimming pools, entertainment venues, a steam room and sauna and a large cinema, there’s plenty to enjoy when you spend the day at sea.
