W1208 Black Watch Spain, Italy & Algiers Cruise Itinerary: Dover – Motril – Cagliari – Naples – Palermo – Algiers – Lisbon – Dover
Black Watch embarks in Dover in time for an early evening departure. After 3 nights at sea the ships docks in the Spanish port of Motril where there is a full day to explore this former Moorish region of Spain.
Fred Olsen have laid on a number of shore excursions for this cruise ranging from a visit to Grenada to a scenic mountain tour. Departing late evening the W1208 cruise heads to Sardinia and Cagliari in particular.
In Cagliari you can enjoy various delights, be it murals; museums or Nora! Nora is an archaeological site where a Phoenician city once stood; it now consists of mainly Roman remains after the city was dramatically destroyed by flooding.
If visiting ancient historical sites is your thing, then Naples, the next port will grab your attention. The choice of things to do include visiting the famous city of Pompeii which was destroyed by the famous Mount Vesuvius eruption of 79AD. Another close by city; the lessor known Herculaneum which was also engulfed by the lava offers an alternative to Pompeii while some will enjoy a trip to the isle of Capri.

Algiers has plenty to offer and available tours range from the ancient to more recent historical times. Trips can take in former Roman glories or a visit to sites associated with World War II.
Currently and this may well change, you do not need a visa if you travel on a Fred Olsen excursion in Algeria.
