Itinerary

Dakar
Day 1
Fabulous museums, a thriving art scene and elegant seaside dining showcase Dakar's rich culture and forward outlook. The bustling traditional Medina quarter with its mosques, tea shops and street markets contrasts with the Senegalese capital's French-influenced architecture and cuisine. Mbalax music dominates the vibrant nightlife. Traditional crafts like woodcarvings and paintings sell at Soumbédioune market, making it the perfect souvenir stop.
Day at sea
Day 2
Sea days are rarely dull. Take the time to sit back and let the world go by. The ship’s observation decks provide stunning views of the passing ocean. A day at sea gives you the opportunity to mingle with other passengers and share your experiences of this incredible trip or head to our library which is stocked full of reference books. Get an expert’s view in one of our on-board lectures or perhaps perfect your photography skills with invaluable advice from our onboard professional photographers.
Dakhla
Day 3-4
The city of Dakhla's position on a peninsula along Morocco's Atlantic coast where the desert meets the sea makes it a unique gateway to Western Sahara's landscapes. The region is a haven for birdwatching enthusiasts, with its vibrant flamingo population attracting numerous visitors. Kitesurfing and desert safaris are also popular activities, offering chances to see mammals like sand cats and reptiles including spiny-tailed lizards.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tenerife Island
Day 5
Tenerife beguiled Agatha Christie when she arrived in 1927 in the old town of Santa Cruz, Tenerife’s capital. Mount Teide, at 3,700-m-high, is the world’s third largest volcano and dominates the landscape. Its volcanic slopes make excellent terroir for quality wines. Admiral Nelson lost his arm in 1797 in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, the world’s first city laid out in a grid with charming 16th-century pastel mansions adorned with wooden balconies.
Santa Cruz de la Palma
Day 6
The historic streets of breathtakingly beautiful Santa Cruz de la Palma, on La Palma, make it one of the prettiest settlements in the Canary Islands. Steeped in history, this island capital is home to palaces, colonial-style houses and the Shrine of Virgen de las Nieves, the oldest religious statue in the Canary Islands. Santa Cruz is as equally picturesque in the day as at night when the city comes alive.
Funchal, Madeira Island
Day 7
Madeira is famous for lush gardens with subtropical plants, but Funchal, the capital of the Garden Island, has more to offer. Rua de Santa Maria's colourful Old Town street is brightened with 200 painted doors. Madeira wine cellars' tasting rooms are scattered throughout the town. Taking a cable car ride to Monte provides a scenic experience, then from the top, carreiros, straw-boatered drivers, guide wicker-basket sleds down the steep streets.
Porto Santo, Porto Santo Island
Day 8
Porto Santo has been dubbed ‘the golden island’ for its 9-km-stretch of silky sands. This is also where Christopher Columbus stayed en route to ‘discovering’ America The 15th-century Columbus House Museum. Along the palm tree- and bougainvillaea-lined streets of the island’s capital, Vila Baleira, many of the island’s restaurants make the local dish of bolo do caco (bread baked on a piece of tile), yam bread served with garlic butter.
Day at sea
Day 9
Today as you sail, you’ll bask in the endless comforts of your ship. From the deck, marvel at the dramatic sea views. Relax with a nurturing facial treatment or massage in the spa or delve into the ship’s learning resources. Or, simply take refuge in your cabin and enjoy the opportunity to rest.
Lisbon
Day 10
Spread over seven hills with São Jorge Castle views, bustling Lisbon is one of the world's oldest cities. Elegant Baixa, hilltop Alfama with its yellow tram, and scenic Graça overviewing pastel buildings, are top areas. The Jerónimos Monastery in Belém is a World Heritage Gothic site. The classic Portuguese pastel de nata custard tarts are a local treat. Europe’s longest suspension bridge, the Ponte 25 de Abril, crosses the river Tagus.
