Ports of Call: Cobh for Cork (Ireland) - Gibraltar (BCC) - Arrecife, Lanzarote (Spain) - Las Palmas, Gran Canaria (Spain) - Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tenerife (Spain) - Funchal, Madeira (Portugal) - Lisbon (Portugal) - Liverpool (UK) - Cobh for Cork (Ireland)

Contrasting islands beckon on this late summer escape south to warmer climes. Beautiful Madeira and the ever-popular Canary Islands of Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Tenerife promise a host of exciting experiences each time you step ashore.

On board, relax and unwind enjoying the delicious cuisine, activities and entertainment. Calls at Gibraltar, Lisbon and Cobh add history and culture to this wonderful voyage.

Your cruise begins in Cobh and after three days at sea your first port of call is Gibraltar.

Famously contested, Gibraltar is a renowned headland in the Mediterranean Sea. A towering 1400 ft outcrop that separates the Mediterranean from the Atlantic, Gibraltar was named Jebel al-Tarik by the Moorish General Tarik who landed there in 711 AD.

See the famous Barbary apes that occupy the island as well as St Michael’s Cave and the Siege Tunnels or admire the view to Africa from a cable car.

A city with maritime roots, Arrecife first appeared on maps in the 15th century as a small fishing harbour. Lanzarote, which lies just four degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer and enjoys a sub-tropical climate, is volcanic in origin. Arrecife’s Calle Leon y Castila has a wealth of shops and is an opportunity for duty free shopping.

With its sub-tropical climate, coastal valleys, beautiful sandy beaches and mountainous peaks, Gran Canaria is a firm favourite with visitors from all over Europe. Head to the historic centre of Vegueta, steeped in traditional architecture and historical buildings which have been standing for over 500 years. 

The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is dominated by Mount Teide in the central mountain range and several spectacular valleys covered with lush landscape, banana plantations and pinewoods.

Santa Cruz, the island's capital, offers a number of museums, and churches to explore together with tempting shops and restaurants. The exotic gardens of Garcia Sanabria Park are worth a visit as is Loro Parque, with its tropical gardens, collection of parrots, and an aquarium with sharks, sealions and penguins.

After Christmas Day at Sea, arrive in Madeira. Set in a magnificent natural amphitheatre overlooking a wide bay, Funchal is the delightful capital of the beautiful and dramatic island of Madeira.

The harbour is right in the centre of town and as you approach the sight of whitewashed buildings with red tiled roofs tumbling down the verdant mountain is spectacular. A modern cable car soars above the bustling city to Monte, which is the start of Madeira’s famous wicker toboggan ride. Wicker baskets, embroidery and the famous Madeira wine are popular souvenirs from the striking island often described as the ‘floating garden of the Atlantic’.

Lisbon, Portugal’s capital city, is home to the magnificent Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Tower, 25th April Bridge and Monument of the Discoveries. Wander through the maze of narrow streets in the delightful Alfama district and ride one of the famous old trams.

From Lisbon sail to Liverpool where you can enjoy the many sights of this vibrant city, enjoy one of the many excursions we can pre-book for you. 

Sail back to Cobh where your cruise will come to an end.
