MOROCCO

Here’s looking at you, Casablanca — Holland America Line cruises to this storied port city and your gateway to exotic adventures in Morocco. Snake charmers and storytellers lure you into the labyrinthine medinas of Casablanca and Marrakech; the latter is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as is Morocco’s capital, Rabat, and the Portuguese city of El Jadida. Rock the kasbah in Agadir, or head out on a hike in the Atlas Mountains; Berber culture comes alive with belly dancing and a Fantasia horse race.
