    Explore the Canary Islands under the winter sun

    This all-inclusive cruise to the Canary Islands in 2023 follows the winter sun south to La Coruña, Madeira and the subtropical Canaries. Stop first to explore the medieval attractions of La Coruña, followed by a visit to Funchal in Madeira en route to Santa Cruz in Tenerife, home to 16th-century plazas and an extensive waterfront promenade. Contrast the laurel forests of La Palma and Gran Canaria’s mountainous scenery with the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park. Your 14-night Canary Island cruise concludes with a visit to Portugal’s historic capital Lisbon, set at the mouth of the Tagus River.

    Your four included panoramic excursions will be in

    • Funchal, Madeira
    • Santa Cruz, Tenerife
    • Arrecife, Lanzarote 
    • Lisbon, Portugal

    Jennie Bond appears regularly on a wide range of television and radio programmes – from light entertainment to documentaries. As the BBC's Royal Correspondent during 14 of the most turbulent years the monarchy has endured, Jennie was at the heart of events that made headlines around the world: from the fairy-tale marriages to the adultery, the divorces, and the deaths. Since then, she has presented the popular shows: ‘Cash in the Attic’, ‘Rip Off Britain’ and ’Great British Menu’. Jennie will give an on-board talk and Q&A during this Canary Island cruise.
