With a blend of authentic cultures, traditional charms and fascinating history to uncover as you embrace and engage with local life in Cape Verde and Morocco, this cruise provides unique, unforgettable experiences throughout.[ReadMoreMob] You’re sure to be captivated by the African and Portuguese influenced architecture, music and dance, and the hustle and bustle of, the trio of Cape Verdean destinations on your itinerary. In each, the friendly locals will welcome you to sample their lifestyle; you could browse busy markets, shake your hips to ‘Funaná’ beats, and of course try the local produce, such as Grogue – the national drink. During your visit to Praia, you could also get a feel for Santiago’s history on a tour to UNESCO-listed Cidade Velha, a former slave trading post, while Mindelo is your gateway to discovering beautiful landscapes and volcanic wonders, such as Monte Verde. On Santo Antão, vibrant Porto Novo is a haven for relaxation, boasting beaches and a picturesque harbour, and overlooked by towering Topo de Coroa, offering panoramic scenic views from its peak.

After Cape Verde, visits to Agadir, Casablanca and Tangier throw a mix of Morocco’s modern delights and ancient treasures into the melting pot. The buzz of day-to-day life in these cities is something to behold as you explore bustling souks, charming streets and pretty squares, and in each, an abundance of attractions await your discovery. Undoubted highlights to seek-out include the ancient Kasbah of Agadir, and Casablanca’s magnificent Hassan II Mosque, famed for its 210-metre-high minaret. In Tangier, a morning call allows ample time soak up the city’s sights; or perhaps uncover UNESCO-listed Tétouan and its famous ancient medina on tour. Beyond the sites and highlights, you’ve even chances to learn to cook like the Berbers in Casablanca; tour to the imperial cities of Marrakech and Rabat; or venture off the beaten track and head into the Atlas Mountains. 

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
