Offering an ideal balance of onboard relaxation and onshore exploration, this cruise is the perfect break. We call first at Madeira, full of subtropical plant life. Then it’s onto the Canaries. Meander the colourful cobbled streets of Santa Cruz, La Palma; be awed by Tenerife’s volcanic views; relax on Gran Canaria’s golden sands; and sample Canarian city life in Arrecife, Lanzarote. Our route home lets us explore the wonderful ancient Spanish port city of Cádiz and Lisbon, Portugal’s vibrant capital.
