    Contrast the Cape Verde islands with the Canaries

    Visit the ‘floating garden’ of Madeira before continuing your all-inclusive cruise to the Canary Islands. Follow in the footsteps of the New World explorers through the old quarter of Santa Cruz de la Palma and in La Gomera, where Christopher Columbus readied his ships for expeditions to the New World. Cruise to the volcanic Cape Verde archipelago to explore the capitals of Praia and Mindelo before returning to the Canaries. Enjoy the winter sun as you take in the highlights of Tenerife’s capital Santa Cruz and the port of Arrecife, Lanzarote’s laid-back capital. Your return journey includes visits to 3,000-year-old Cádiz and La Coruña, with its charming old town of medieval lanes and plazas.

    Your five included panoramic excursions will be in

    • Funchal, Madeira
    • Santa Cruz, Tenerife
    • Arrecife, Lanzarote
    • Cádiz, Spain
    • La Coruña, Spain
