Review summary

This cruise was to celebrate my 60th Birthday. Apart from the first two days which were a little bit rough, we really enjoyed the cruise. We had some wonderful table companions for dinner and as a whole, all the passengers were a delight to be on board with.

Spent an extra day here because of missing Ceuta, really pretty and very clean. Once again well worth exploring on your own. Didn't do an excursion.

Tenerife, Canary Islands

5 out of 5
Lots to see but the traffic in the port town is quite busy. Didn't do an excursion.

La Gomera, Canary Islands

5 out of 5
Did the National park walk excursion. Good way to see the scenery up in the hills. Port is very pretty and well worth spending more time here.

Funchal, Madeira

5 out of 5
Funchal is always one of our favourites, we always do our own thing here. Didn't do an excursion.

Lisbon, Portugal

5 out of 5
Did the excursion to Sintra. We didn't really do our homework properly on this tour as we only had 20 minutes there before doing a tour around other towns. They were nice but we really wanted to explore Sintra. Our own fault. Lisbon looked lovely bu we only had about 90 minutes to look around. More homework required next time.


5 out of 5
Disembarkation was efficient. No complaints what so ever.
