• Catch a Canaries cruise for some welcome autumn warmth with Fred Olsen



    After one of our wettest ever summers, what better way to enjoy a balmy break this autumn, than with a Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Canaries cruise? There are some great savings on cruises to the Canary Islands, Portugal, Morocco, and Azores, where the climate is warm and welcoming.

    Fred. Olsen’s Canaries cruises offer superb value for money, with the en-suite cabins, all meals and entertainment on board ship, port taxes, and a host of facilities and activities at sea all included in the price. Additionally, many cruises feature a special interest, hosted by experts, through the onboard enrichment programme, Vistas, for guests to enjoy at no extra cost.

    Braemar has a ‘Canaries & Morocco’ cruise of 14 nights, M1224, departing from Dover on 6th October 2012. This cruise visits the lovely islands of Madeira, Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, as well as the exotic Moroccan port of Agadir, with a final call into the attractive Portuguese capital, Lisbon, en route back to Dover. The cruise has the added attraction of a Vistas theme of ‘Photography.’

    Hosting the Vistas theme will be Dr Mike Maloney OBE. During his 30 years on Mirror Group Newspapers as Group Chief Photographer, Mike Maloney has travelled the world on various assignments photographing everyone in the news from Princess Diana to Mother Teresa of Calcutta. His lectures take in News, Showbiz, Sports and Royalty, giving the inside stories and tales of the day. Mike is currently Britain’s top award-winning press photographer with 99 major photographic awards to his name.

    Prices for this cruise start from just £899 per person, based on two adults sharing an inside, twin cabin, with a ‘Latesaver’ deal (cabin allocated on embarkation).

    For a slightly later getaway, join Boudicca, cruising from Portsmouth, on 4th November 2012, for her 14-night ‘Portugal & the Canaries’ cruise, D1224, which visits the ‘Garden Island’ of Madeira, before taking in some winter sunshine in the Canary Islands of La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canarias and Lanzarote. Vibrant Lisbon, Portugal’s colourful capital is the ship’s next port of call, followed by Leixoes for tours to the bustling city of Oporto, before returning to Portsmouth.

    Prices for this cruise start from £799, for two adults sharing a twin-bedded cabin, Grade ‘I’, and include all meals and accommodation, entertainment, and port taxes.

    There is a very special added attraction on this cruise; the chance to learn all there is to know about chocolate from renowned chocolatier, Gerry Wilton, as part of the award-winning Vistas onboard enrichment programme. Guests will learn about the history of chocolate, as well as being able to participate in hands-on chocolate-making classes whilst on board.
