Exploring The Canaries & Madeira
16 Night Ocean Cruise
SAILING FROM NEWCASTLE ABOARD BALMORAL
This sunshine Easter sailing presents the chance to unearth the unspoilt essence of the Canary Islands and experience the Garden Isle of Madeira in all its springtime glory. First port is Leixões, your gateway to Oporto where you’ll find a fortress-like cathedral and cobbled streets that wind down to the Douro River. Funchal, capital of Madeira, is a floating garden blessed with a subtropical climate and the year-round perfumes of flowers. Reaching Santa Cruz de la Palma, you’ll be enchanted by colonial style architecture and the replica of Christopher Columbus’s ship, Santa Maria. Gliding on, you arrive at Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Las Palmas, capital of Gran Canaria then Arrecife on lunar-like Lanzarote. Final port is La Coruna where attractions include the soaring Tower of Hercules and colonnaded Maria Pital Plaza.
