Cruises to Africa and the Atlantic Islands

The Atlantic Islands are classic cruise destinations. Warm year-round thanks to their southerly setting, they’re ideal choices if you’re looking for a winter sun cruise.  
Madeira’s subtropical landscapes have earned it the nickname the ‘Floating Garden’ – a walk through its flower-filled gardens or along the lush levada walkways is a great way to spend your time here. Alternatively, you could explore the capital, Funchal, with its churches, museums and wine bars.

Cruises to the Canaries, meanwhile, offer up volcanic scenery, whitewashed fishing towns and coastlines edged with gold and black-sand beaches. Then you’ve got the beautiful Cape Verde Islands, with their powder-soft beaches; and the dramatic Azores, home to crater lakes and bubbling hot springs.

For something even more exotic, try our cruises to Africa. Explore the winelands and game reserves on a tour of South Africa, or travel to Madagascar and the Seychelles to discover the unspoilt beauty of these Indian Ocean islands. 

No-fly cruises

Many of our cruises to the Atlantic Islands are no-fly cruises, so you’ll set sail from the UK. You’ll still enjoy our hassle-free VIP door-to-door travel services. Your driver will collect you from home and take you to the port departures area, so there are no worries about finding your way to the ship from the train station or car park. 

If you’ve chosen an internal flight to your UK port, we’ll take you from home to the airport and on to the port at the other end. At the end of the cruise, your driver will be waiting to take you home again.
