We did an excursion showing the sights of Lisbon and surrounding areas which was OK, and went to Estoril also where the weather was nice and sunny, really enjoyed sitting in a cafe bar for an hour enjoying the sunshine.

Wonderful embarkation point. Near the city center. Very cosmopolitan city, with great walking and forts. The cafes are great. Good food. Not very expensive.

A very beautiful city on the banks of the Tagus River.  We really enjoyed exploring the city.  I like history and enjoyed seein g the monument to the explorers as well as the Geronimos Monastery.  We also enjoyed shopping in the heart of town and the Alfama (the oldest part of Lisbon).  There are not bargains like in Latin America or Asia, but it was reasonably priced for Europe.  They have beautiful tile and cork products for sale.  Taxi rides were the least expensive I have found in Western Europe.  Read Less

After a very interesting approach under a the Tagus bridge we embarked on our audio tour of Lisbon (the only tour we purchased). As you may have surmised we like to be independant so the I Pod audio tour was perfect. Armed with a map we set off for a few hours exploring the beautiful city of Lisbon.Vigo was our last stop - the only stop we would not choose to visit again.  A nice enough place but not a lot to see Read Less

Another commercial port, but the sights on river banks just before the dock make sailing in and out special.  The dock is a fair way from the city.

The ship docks at Alcantara, a couple of miles away from the city centre. Shuttle buses were on offer at $11 return to the city centre. However there is a suburban railway station only 5 minutes walk from the ship where you can use the frequent train service to Cais do Sodre station in the city centre for 2.40 euros return. I have visited Lisbon on several occasions, and it remains one of my favourite European cities, with the buildings with their wrought iron balconies in the Baixa district, the ancient Alfama district on the hill around the castle, and the Chiado distict on the opposite hill, now sympathetically restored following the devastating fire in 1988. The normally impressive Praca do Commercio with the river Tagus on one side and the huge sculpted stone gateway to the city on the other is currently a large building site. The ship left in late afternoon, but the journey down river under the suspension bridge, past Belem and out to Estoril is full of interest. Read Less

Toured Sintra which I loved and had lunch at Dos Cabritos which was wonderful and typical Portugese food. Visited the seaside resort of Cascais and then Lisbon. Lisbon is beautiful and worth seeing. Went to the end of Western Europe on this tour. Covered a lot of ground in one day. My husband used public transportation and he said it was outstanding. He took a train to Sintra and loved it!

Lisbon is a fabulous city but we were there on a Monday and all the museums were closed except for the Sao Jorge castle in town that is worth a visit if only for he spectacular views. We hopped on a bus near the ship (17A) got to Rossio place and took the train to Sintra a beautiful little town on the coast, we visited the Imperial Palace ( very nice) and did a tour of town on a little train. Good buys in the shops. We then came back and walked through Lisbon and finally took a taxi to the ship. Read Less

As we only had a few hours here, we chose to just wander the city, which was very easy to navigate. Be sure to stop for pastries at one of the beautiful cafes.
