Holiday Overview

Visit the Iberian Peninsula aboard P&O’s adult-only Aurora cruise ship on our accessible Portugal and Spain Cruise. 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 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 Aurora cruise ship, enjoying all of the onboard facilities as you go. Your first stop is Vigo, a historic Galician town with a deep connection to the ocean. Home to Europe’s largest fishing fleet and, naturally, some of the best seafood in Spain, it’s a paradise for tapas lovers and boasts an impressive array of top-notch restaurants. Next, you’ll sail on to Lisbon, Portugal’s enthralling capital. Staggeringly beautiful, undeniably charming and one of the trendiest cities in Europe, you’re sure to fall in love with this colourful metropolis. Finally, the Aurora will dock in Leixoes, an important port just a few kilometres north of Porto. There, you can choose to explore the town’s bustling cafes and shopping district or join a P&O tour of Porto. 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, your cabin is fully accessible, as are the vast majority of the Aurora’s other facilities. With several restaurants, 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. Your tour includes a night in an accessible, half-board Southampton hotel prior to departure and your stay in your full-board, accessible cabin aboard the Aurora. If you would like more information about accessibility aboard the Aurora, we recommend getting in touch with one of the Limitless Travel Advisors on 0800 711 7232

Your adventure begins! Home-pick up (within the first 100miles), or pick up at Southampton Central or Airport, or free parking included. From here, we’ll make our way to Southampton’s cruise terminal to board P&O's world-class Aurora cruise ship. Exclusively for adults - the Aurora is designed to offer all the features and facilities of a classic cruise liner but with a more intimate feel.

When boarding the Aurora, the Limitless team will help get your bags to check-in, after which the crew will take them directly to your accessible cabin. You’ll also benefit from Priority Boarding, so you’ll be exploring the ship before you know it!

Included: breakfast at the hotel + full board on the ship

Today, we’ll head towards the Iberian Peninsula, taking in the spectacular sea views as we go and making the most of the ship’s impressive facilities. Whether you want to catch a film at the cinema, book yourself in for a Broadway-style show, relax by the pool or sing your heart out at karaoke, the Aurora boasts everything you need for a fantastically entertaining day at sea.

Vigo, Spain

Bienvenidos a España! The fascinating town of Vigo is your first port of call. A historic maritime settlement that boasts some beautiful neoclassical architecture, Vigo is also home to Europe’s largest fishing fleet. It’s a cool and atmospheric town, where brilliant tapas bars, charming cafes and fantastic restaurants abound.


Your cruise ship will dock only a few minutes from the palm-lined streets of Vigo’s town centre and our carers will assist you when you disembark the ship and head out to experience your first taste of Spain. We recommend sampling some of the local seafood - it doesn’t get much fresher than this.

Included: Full Board

Lisbon, Portugal

Your second stop is the postcard-perfect city of Lisbon. Capital of Portugal and one of the hottest destinations in Europe, it’s a beautiful city that boasts some of the most picturesque streets, squares and sights on the continent. As we’re arriving, we’ll cruise past the Belem Tower, the Cristo Rei and under the city’s impressive suspension bridge.


The Limitless Team will be on hand to help you disembark and explore the Portuguese capital. Make sure you try a traditional Portuguese custard tart and soak up the relaxed atmosphere - Lisbon is a Limitless favourite and we’re sure you’ll have a brilliant day.

Porto (Leixoes), Portugal

It’s an interesting destination in its own right, with a unique seafaring heritage, plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to discover and a laid back feel.


However, if you would rather visit the cutting-edge architecture and winding alleyways of Porto, you can upgrade onto an escorted tour of the city. While the tour is organised and provided by P&O, our carers can join you and provide support and assistance along the way.

On Day Seven, we’ll start making our way north, back towards Southampton. It’s another excellent opportunity to enjoy the Aurora’s onboard facilities - whether that means dining in one of the ship’s seven restaurants, checking out a cabaret performance or relaxing on the deck with a cocktail in hand. As always, our team will be available throughout the day to help and support you.

Included: Full Board

St Peter Port, Guernsey

On the penultimate day of your holiday, the Aurora will stop off at St Peter Port in Guernsey. However, as the only way to head ashore is via the ship’s smaller tenders, it’s not always possible for Limitless guests to disembark.

Fortunately, Guernsey’s famous tax benefits extend to the Aurora, so it’s the perfect opportunity to get in some last-minute shopping and pick up a few reduced VAT items. You’ll also be able to enjoy an emptier ship and participate in activities hosted by either the P&O crew or our own Limitless Team.
