MAXED OUT ON MOROCCAN SUN

Cruise to Agadir, Morocco

Situated at the foot of the Atlas Mountains along the Atlantic coast, Agadir is one of Morocco's most modern cities. The city was rebuilt after a major earthquake in the 1960s, but it still maintains a sense of its rich history. Agadir is also Morocco's premier destination for sun and sand — and with 300 sunny days a year, it only stands to reason. During your Morocco cruise, head to the popular beachfront promenade. When you've had enough of the sun, step into the colorful marketplace at Souk El Had, where Moroccan culture comes to life. Take in the scents of spices and fresh citrus, search for one-of-a-kind lamps and rugs, and walk the paths so many have before you.

Visions of the Past

Built in 1992, La Medina d'Agadir is a recreation of the original medina that was wrecked in the 1960s earthquake. It was created using traditional Berber techniques — making it part museum and part artwork that you simply can't miss.

Rock the Kasbah

The Kasbah, built in 1541, is one of the few structures that withstood the earthquake that nearly leveled the city in the 1960s. A hike to the top will not only afford you one of the best views of the city but also a look into medieval Arabic architecture.

Local Cuisine

The cuisine in Agadir is rich with Spanish influence. Because the ancient city is situated on the Atlantic, the options for fresh seafood are endless. Cruise to Morocco and head to one of the restaurants along the waterfront and enjoy a plate of grilled sardines or a bowl of tagine, the classic Moroccan spiced meat stew, alongside ocean views.
