This program could be attended by anyone in any age group. The activities were not very physically demanding and the experience of sailing was delightful! We especially enjoyed the efforts and insights of our group leader!

Although we enjoyed the ship and the destinations in Spain and Morocco, there were a significant number of logistical failures that flawed this trip. Ground transportation was a recurring problem, with buses not showing up when or where expected, or not being prepared for the type of transportation needed. Disembarking in Gibraltar, two days ahead of the original plan, was particularly problematic, due to the refusal of the bus company to provide cross-border service into Spain. We also felt that there was too little time spent in ports of interest, with rushed bus tours, while free time in Spain often fell during the siesta hours when many shops and businesses were closed.

Spain, Morocco and Gibraltar: A Clipper Ship Voyage, Program Number: 20481. Absolutely one of the top Road Scholar programs. Anyone can take a cruise ship tour to Spain, Morocco and Gibraltar but the Star Flyer clipper ship experience is without equal in education, adventure and enjoyment. Our tour leader Cecilia Ceriani is a consummate lecturer on the history of Spain from medieval to modern times and fascinated us all with the contributions of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim cultures that have lived together for centuries in the Iberian Peninsula. Our local guides in Seville, Malaga, Casablanca, Tunis, and Gibraltar were all wonderful. I liked every part of the program, especially seeing and learning about so many new people, places, and cultures and most especially the wonderful clipper ship sailing adventure on the Mediterranean from Spain through the Straits of Gibraltar to the Atlantic Ocean and Morocco. Our instructor, our guides, the Star Flyer ship's crew and of course our fellow Road Scholar shipmates will always be well and fondly remembered in our hearts!
