    Description

    Escape the winter gloom and cruise the islands of Macaronesia, a world away from the cold weather and shorter nights back home as you hop between seven stunning destinations. With chances to immerse yourself in the colourful history and culture of Cape Verde; discover the Canaries’ iconic attractions; and explore the gorgeous, fragrant landscapes of Madeira.


    Your island-based adventures include an opportunity to revel in the splendour of tropical gardens in Madeira; while on the mainland, there’s opportunities to delve into Lisbon’s rich maritime history, as well as the architectural gems and the famous wines of Oporto. Then there’s the awe-inspiring lunar-like landscapes of Lanzarote.


    The two Cape Verdean destinations on your itinerary present cultural treasures aplenty. On Santiago Island, you'll visit the Cape Verdean capital, Praia. São Vicente Island is a showcase of some of Cape Verde’s most spectacular landscapes, with vast volcanic valleys and breath-taking peaks, including Monte Verde the island’s highest point.


    En route back to Southampton Balmoral will also stop off in Lisbon, offering you the chance to enjoy a relaxing day of sightseeing in the Portuguese capital.
