Beach Anse Lazio at Island Praslin, Seychelles

Leave December’s cold, wet weather behind and join Boudicca in Mauritius before embarking on a very special festive sailing, cruising to a string of idyllic islands in the Indian Ocean.

Your exotic holiday will begin with an overnight stay in Port Louis, a city famed for its diverse mix of cultures, religions and ethnicities. Sample the authentic Mauritian lifestyle in the bustling city, or explore the island in search of once-in-a-lifetime experiences and stunning scenery. You could visit Casela National Park and walk with lions; or tour the south of the island and discover the breathtaking Trou-aux-Cerfs volcano, sacred lake and ‘Seven Coloured Earth’ sand dunes. Then in the Seychelles, an abundance of ‘must-do’ experiences await. You could join an incredible Robinson Crusoe Adventure tour from Praslin Island in search of huge Coco de Mer nuts and Aldabra Giant Land Tortoises, one of the largest tortoise species in the world; and discover the beautiful, uninhabited island of Moyenne on a memorable catamaran cruise from Victoria, Mahé. You'll also enjoy a magical scenic cruise by Silhouette island at sunset – a simply unforgettable spectacle.

Zanzibar’s fascinating African history is yours to explore during a day-long call to the beautiful Tanzanian island. Among many historic attractions to discover include the chilling slave chambers, the old fort and the House of Wonders. Alternatively you could make the most of the sunshine on the white sand beaches, or go scuba diving among the protected barrier reefs. On Christmas Eve, spend a relaxing day strolling around the dusty streets of charming Mamoudzou; or perhaps take in the highlights of Mayotte, including the Indian Ocean’s largest lagoon – home to tropical fish, dolphins and over 250 different species of hard coral. Christmas Day and Boxing Day will be spent at sea, with all the festive food and fun you would enjoy at home; before Boudicca docks in Port Reunion, the gateway to Reunion Island’s sweeping volcanic landscapes, dense forests and beautiful waterfalls.

No single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.
