Canary Islands
Overview
The sun-drenched Canary Islands lie close to North Africa and have an exotic flavour of their own. Hundreds of volcanoes, rolling sand dunes, rich forests and rugged cliffs dapple these Atlantic gems.

Situated just seventy miles from the North African coast, these thirteen sub-tropical islands are some of Spain's most popular holiday destinations. But why stick to just one island when you could see them all? On a Canaries cruise you can visit La Palma with its dramatic volcanic scenery, Gran Canaria's spectacular sand dunes, Tenerife's exciting water parks and lively nightlife, as well as Lanzarote's long white beaches. On many Canary Island cruises, there's also the chance to leave the Spanish islands behind for a few days and enjoy Portuguese life on the small isle of Madeira, or experience the hectic buzz of Morocco in Agadir.
Background

Ports

Tenerife, Canary Islands
Tenerife is largest of the Canary Islands. The island is dominated by the dormant volcano Mount Teide; hop on a cable car to marvel at the views or take a hike along the trail. Tenerife is also known for its famous Carnaval de Santa Cruz with its spectacular parades, music, dancing, and colourful costumes. Siam Park is a Thai-themed water park packed with swimming pools, exhilarating slides, and plenty of family fun. Experience up-close encounters with gorillas, tigers, penguins, and other species at the landscaped Loro Park. Party animals can discover Playa de las Americas and its famed nightlife scene. Try your hand at windsurfing, kite surfing, or parasailing on El Medano Beach. The island’s capital, Santa Cruz, is home to Auditorio de Tenerife, Museum of Fine Arts, and Museum of Nature and Man. The UNESCO-listed colonial city of San Cristobal de la Laguna is well worth a visit too.

Madeira, Portugal
Madeira, Portugal
Today the ship drops anchor at the Portuguese island of Madeira. Nicknamed the 'floating garden' due to its lush flora and fauna, there is no place that typifies this more than Funchal's Botanical Gardens. Ride in the cable car up to Monte, before returning back down to the city in a traditional toboggan? Head to the east of the island to admire the views from Pico de Arieiro, or venture west to visit the picturesque village of Câmara del Lobos and the Cabo Girão Skywalk. Take a ferry to the neighbouring island of Porto Santo, a beach-lovers paradise, or take a baptism dive with sharks and tropical fish at Aquario da Madeira. For the ultimate treat, why not enjoy a traditional afternoon tea at the famous Belmond Reid's Palace Hotel in Funchal?
Gran Canaria, Canary Islands
The Canary island of Gran Canaria is famous for its beaches, water sports, food, and marine life. Beach lovers will delight in a day spent sunbathing, watching people body board, and enjoy a mojito or two on the promenade at Playa de las Canteras beach. Learn how to paddle board, surf, or scuba dive in Arguineguin where there’s also a collection of shisha bars. Adventurers delight as you hike Caldera de Bandama and admire the views that extend the entire north-east and central areas of the island – and on the way down enjoy a well-earned glass of Rioja at the nearby Vino Del Monte. Get close with wildlife and see dolphins, turtles, seals, toucans, and much more at Palmitos Park – the biggest zoological park in the Canary Islands. Or, swap seals for slides at Aqualand Water Park which is only ten minutes away from the Zoo.

Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Lanzarote, Canary Islands
The ship drops anchor today on the island of Lanzarote. Admire Castillo San Gabriel and Castillo San Jose that form the backdrop to Arrecife harbour. The beautiful golden sand of Playa del Reducto is ideal for a morning's sunbathing, or take a stroll along the seafront promenade to the peaceful Playa del Cable. Venture inland to explore the landscape of Timanfaya National Park's fire mountains or uncover the spectacular natural concert hall and subterranean lagoon at Cueva de Los Verdes.
