I am looking for planning tips and suggestions as most of the places I have listed above are more a “Wish list” of places I would like to see, but I don’t really have time to see them all. I am flying in/out of Barcelona, but I have been to Spain before in 2005, so I don’t need to spend much time there this trip, just a day at the start and end.
I could use suggestions as I am traveling during the easter weekend and was thinking of spending that on Palma de Mallorca before heading south to Morocco, which is where I want to spend most of this trip.

I haven’t been to any of those cities but have most planned for my trip this summer. I have heard phenomenal things about Morocco, and specifically Marrakech (I’m particularly excited since french is the native tongue and my first language), let me know how it goes!

For anyone interested I can probably give some advice on Morocco as I am just finishing up my trip there. I took the ferry to/from Algeciras, Spain to Tangier, Morocco. From Tangier went to Rabat, Casablanca, Marrakesh, Meknes, Fes, and then back to Tangier.
It was a bit rushed and wish I had more time there, but glad I got to see what I did.
Off to catch a train back to Barcelona, will post more when I have time.
