Las Palmas - Funchal - Casablanca - Agadir - Arrecife - Santa Cruz de Tenerife - Las Palmas (11 Days)

A cruise with plenty of time for day trips, exploring by yourself and relaxing at sea, there’s something for everyone on this sub-tropical Atlantic voyage.

The tiny island of Madeira is where Sir Winston Churchill is said to have been deeply inspired by the picturesque villages and seascapes. During your time here you will have ample opportunity to see why. As evening comes, stroll through the quiet streets of Funchal, before choosing from a range of activities on offer next morning.

Take a thrilling cable car ride, followed by a wicker-framed street “toboggan” descent through the streets of Monte, board a tuk-tuk for a tour through Funchal’s hidden lanes, or relax on a panoramic trip to see the flowers of Madeira, with a visit to the famous botanical garden.

Discover Marrakesh, known as the “Pearl of the South”, on an extended day trip to the city. Or tour the Moroccan capital of Rabat, where sights include the Kasbah of the Oudayas, Hassan Tower, Mohamed V Mausoleum and the Royal Palace.

Experience the legendary metropolis of Casablanca by night and see the sights by day, or take a tour to the Dar Al Ala Museum of Music, with a chance to do some haggling in the vibrant local market.

Sail south to Agadir for untouched Essaouira and the UNESCO World Heritage walled medina, that will be instantly recognisable to Game of Thrones fans. Then experience an authentic Moroccan folklore show, with delicacies, in the Berber palace.

On the Canary Island of Lanzarote, visit the Fire Mountains of Timanfaya National Park, or stroll through a unique Cactus Garden before touring the Contemporary Art Museum, surprisingly located inside an old military fort.

Arriving in Tenerife, take a day trip through Las Cañadas National Park to the highest peak in Spain, the dormant volcano of El Teide. Or enjoy a guided tour of the former capital, La Laguna, with a visit to a local bodega for a tasting.
