Explore historic cities and sun-kissed scenery, experience fascinating cultures and go in search of some of the world’s most amazing wildlife at incredible destinations in the Mediterranean, Africa, Arabia and the Indian Ocean on this magical 33-night voyage aboard Boudicca.

Calling first into Cadiz, there’s the chance to explore the pretty historic quarter or perhaps take a trip to neighbouring Jerez – the sherry capital of the world – before continuing onwards to visit three beautiful Mediterranean islands. Enjoy Mallorca’s palm-lined beaches and stunning scenery during a day in Palma, where the charming Old Town of centuries-old gothic structures is also a joy to explore; sail into Valletta's iconic Grand Harbour then wander through the ornate streets of Malta's walled capital city; and delve into the ancient Greek history of Iraklion, Crete. In Egypt you’ll sail along the remarkable Suez Canal before calling into the popular resort of Sharm el Sheikh, which is home to breathtaking beaches and incredible coral reefs. A stop at Salalah, Oman – the 'perfume city of Arabia' – will allow time to see the eye-catching Sultan Qaboos Mosque and immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the aromatic Al Husn souk.   

A string of idyllic islands in the Indian Ocean are next on the itinerary, beginning with an overnight stay in Zanzibar where the harrowing slave chambers, 19th century Anglican Church, House of Wonders museum and soft white sand beaches are among many attractions. Mozambique Island is renowned for its mix of cultures and fascinating history, and at just 3 Kilometres long is easy to explore on foot. One side of the island is distinctly European, with historic stone structures and museums; the other more rugged, with wooden huts dotted around a traditional fishing village. During a stop at Mamoudzou, on the French island of Mayotte, you can experience a fascinating snorkelling adventure at the Indian Ocean's largest lagoon. Then after savouring the sweeping volcanic landscapes of Reunion Island on a hike or exhilarating helicopter tour from Port Reunion, you’ll end this epic adventure with an overnight stay in Port Louis, the gateway to the paradise beaches and national parks of Mauritius.

Please note: The itinerary for this cruise has been changed since our Fly-Cruises Worldwide 2017-19 went to press. Toamasina has been replaced by Mamoudzou, Mayotte. 

Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.
