Holiday Overview

Discover some of Spain and France’s most thrilling coastal destinations as you cruise the Mediterranean aboard P&O’s brand new Arvia cruise ship. Equipped with cutting-edge facilities, accessible cabins and more dining and entertainment options than you can imagine, the Arvia is the perfect vessel for this incredible adventure around the Iberian Peninsula. Your first port of call is A Coruña, a fascinating Galician city with strong connections to the fashion and fishing industries and a wealth of world-class seafood restaurants to boot. Next, we’ll move on to Valencia, Spain’s third city and an important cultural and culinary hub. Just up the coast, is the Catalan capital of Barcelona, where you can wander down the Ramblas, marvel at the magnificence of the Sagrada Familia and find key works by Picasso, Gaudí and Dalí. Then it’s on to Marseille, France’s wonderfully diverse southern city.

Boasting a remarkable history and up-and-coming feel, it’s quickly becoming one of the country’s most popular holiday destinations. Your final stop is Cadiz, possibly the most romantic and charismatic city on the Iberian Peninsula. The oldest continuously-inhabited city in Europe, its friendly, party-loving residents make it a truly special place to visit. With its swimming pools, theatre, cinema, mini-golf course and spa and health centre, the Arvia boasts plenty of entertainment and activities to keep you busy during your time at sea. Likewise, the diverse array of dining options ensures you’ll always have somewhere new to eat and never tire of the delicious cuisines on offer. 

As always, the Limitless Team will be on-hand throughout the cruise to provide support and assistance whenever necessary. Whether you’re looking for a little emotional support or require all-day care, we’re able to create a tailored care package that meets your needs. Exclusive to our guests, we will also offer "potter around the port" service in Barcelona, Cadiz and A Coruña - as the ship will dock a few minutes away from each hub. 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 Arvia. If you would like more information about accessibility aboard the Arvia, we recommend getting in touch with one of the Limitless Travel Advisors on 0800 711 7232.

Embarkation

Your adventure begins! Home-pick up (within the first 100miles), or pick up at Southampton Central or Airport, or free parking for the duration of the cruise included.


Launching in December 2022, you’ll enjoy all the luxury of a state-of-the-art vessel and its fantastic facilities! The Limitless Team will help get your bags to check-in, from which they’ll be sent directly to your accessible cabin. You’ll also benefit from Priority Embarkation, so you’ll be among the first to board the ship.

As we set sail for the warm waters of the Mediterranean, you’ll have a day to get to know the ship, relax in your accessible state-room and enjoy some fantastic entertainment.

La Coruna, Spain

< >

Today, we make our first stop in A Coruña - one of Galicia’s biggest cities and a major hub for the textiles and fashion industries. Home to international mega-brand, Zara, it boasts an exciting array of shops and boutiques.

It’s not all about the shopping, though. A Coruña is a vibrant and exciting beach town with a fantastic food scene and some of the best seafood in northern Spain. Your ship docks just a seven-minute walk from the central Maria Pita square, where you’ll find a number of delightful cafes, bars and restaurants and also be able to catch a glimpse of the city’s famous Hercules Lighthouse.

Day at Sea

Revel in the glorious Mediterranean rays out on deck, cool off in the pool and check out the night sky beneath Arvia’s unique SkyDome as we travel around the Iberian Peninsula. Your full-board holiday ensures you can take your pick of dining experiences in a range of new and exclusive restaurants, while P&O’s entertainment facilities and organised activities are a great way to pass the day.


Whether you want to catch a film at the onboard cinema, would prefer to listen to some live music or try something completely different in the Altitude Activity Zone, there’s something for every type of traveller.

Entering the Mediterranean

Today, we pass the Pillars of Hercules, sail through the Strait of Gibraltar and enter the Mediterranean Sea as we make our way towards Valencia. It’s another opportunity to make the most of the ship’s excellent facilities, so why not book yourself in for a spa treatment, take a stroll down the ship’s Avenue shopping centre or take a seat at the theatre for a spectacular show.

Valencia, Spain

< >

The beautiful city of Valencia is your next port of call! A fascinating city that offers a heady blend of the old and the new, Valencia is one of the most exciting destinations in Spain. Home of paella and brilliant cultural and artistic spaces (make sure you check out the futuristic science and art museums!), it’s a wonderful city to explore and offers some of the best dining experiences in the country.


The city centre is quite a distance from the port, so if you're interested in a day tour, speak to a Limitless advisor. Group care support will be available during the day to assist with disembarking the ship and getting around the harbour or city.

Onward to France

Another perfect day beneath the gorgeous Mediterranean sun! Take it easy by the pool, try out one of the many restaurants you’ve yet to visit or enjoy the view from the glamorous Amber Lounge. With so much to do, you’ll struggle to fit it all in.

Marseilles, France

< >

A historic maritime city that’s one of France’s best-kept holiday secrets, Marseille is a joy to wander around. Centred on the Vieux Port, where fishing boats line up alongside super-yachts and pleasure boats, this vibrant city boasts several world-class museums and some of the best seafood in France.


The cruise terminal is situated roughly 10km from the city centre, so we would recommend talking to a Limitless advisor if you would like to visit Marseilles on a day tour.

Barcelona, Spain

< >

Today marks the start of a two-day stop in the Catalan capital, Barcelona. One of the most iconic cities in Europe and an essential destination for architecture, art and food-lovers, there’s nothing quite like strolling through the Barri Gòtic and stopping at one of the many outstanding bars for a spot of tapas or a cooling sangria.

If you’re a bit of a culture vulture, there are plenty of opportunities to check out work by Dalí, Gaudí Miró and Picasso, so make sure you plan your visit ahead of time to make the most of your stay. Don’t worry if you can’t squeeze everything into one day, though. There’s always tomorrow!

Return to the Ramblas

< >

Another morning in spectacular Barcelona! Today’s a chance to fit in everything you couldn’t do yesterday, so take a stroll down the Ramblas, book yourself in for a visit to the breathtaking Sagrada Familia or find a table in the bustling Raval neighbourhood and watch the world go by.

The Arvia isn’t scheduled to depart until the early evening, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore, pick up some souvenirs and enjoy Barcelona’s laid back, beachside atmosphere.

Day at Sea

After two days in busy Barcelona, it’s time to kick back and relax by the pool! Why not start the day with a continental breakfast in your cabin or grab a bite in the alfresco pool bar? You can also catch up with your fellow Limitless Travellers in the Arvia’s SkyDome, enjoy a little me-time at the spa or watch one of the latest releases in the big-screen cinema.

Cadiz, Spain

< >

Your final port before we head for home! Romantic Cadiz boasts thousands of years of history and has been one of Spain’s most important coastal cities for much of the country’s past. One of the spiritual homes of flamenco, it’s a city with a unique character and visible Arabic heritage, ensuring it’s an enchanting last stop on your cruise.

Almost entirely surrounded by water, Cadiz is one of the Iberian Peninsula’s hidden gems and a favourite amongst many Spanish travellers. The locals are known for their welcoming, down-to-earth character and the city’s restaurants are seafood specialists, so make sure you sit down for some fresh fish before you leave. Our care team will escort you to Plaza de España and the Batería de San Felipe (a canon lined fortress), both of which are within walking distance of the cruise terminal and are great spots to begin your exploration of this sun-soaked city.
