A narrated tour of spectacular Casablanca is perfect for guests who prefer little or no walking. It showcases all of the city's main sights and highlights. Board your motorcoach and begin with a photo stop at the Habous Quarter, built in the French style. Here, the narrow streets lead to shaded squares and you'll have a brief period of time to explore some of the marketplace offerings. Nearby, admire from the exterior the Mahakma du Pacha, the Islamic law courts with graceful architectural lines. Drive to the famed Hassan II Mosque, completed in 1993. The mosque boasts the world's tallest minaret, stretching 650 feet in height. Continue to Mohammed V Square, where Casablanca's administrative buildings surround a vast square, considered to be the city's centerpiece of French design. At the tour's completion, you may remain for independent sightseeing but are responsible for your own return to the ship.

This was quite a disappointment as one of the main reasons we booked this cruise was to tour Casablanca, Morocco. After all, the name of this cruise is "16 Day MOROCCAN Passage Cruise. We've already visited the top of the Rock Of Gibraltar on two prior cruises and have no intention of going up the rock a third time. We instead picked a different shore excursion.

Set off on a panoramic tour to Chatham Counterguard, built in the 19th century to protect Gibraltar Harbor against enemy attack, followed by a wine tasting presented by the My Wines boutique. From the quayside you'll travel by mini-coach to the border. Along the way, you'll pass sights such as the American War Memorial and the Trafalgar Cemetery before reaching Europa Point, the southernmost point of Gibraltar. From this vantage point you can admire the views of the coast of North Africa, 12 miles across the famous Straits of Gibraltar. Once you arrive at Chatham Counterguard, you'll meet a staff member from the My Wines venue who will escort you to the upper terrace. There you'll be treated to a sampling of wines and a chef's selection of gourmet delights. Wine is available for purchase in the vault and shopping along Main Street ends your tour.
