Global Morning News – Exotic Islands Luxury Cruise to Less Visited Spots

Posted on: May 7, 2024

For those who have travelled extensively throughout the Mediterranean there is an itinerary I came across with Silversea Cruises that looks intriguing, to me, and might be of interest to others. This 15 day itinerary cruises out of and return to Lisbon and visits the Azores islands, Madeira and the Canary Islands. Doing this in October is the perfect time. Not too hot and not too busy.

Let’s look at the destination – The Azores - It is an archipelago composed of nine volcanic islands in the Macaronesia region of the North Atlantic Ocean, about 1,400 km (870 mi) west of Lisbon. The volcanic history creates dramatic landscapes and the islands are dotted with cute little fishing towns and some great beaches.

Then on to Madeira – more spectacular landscapes and great wine tasting opportunities. Of course Madeira is known for its namesake wine, “Have some Madeira, M’dear” (A song made famous in 1957 by Flanders and Swann…. Irrelevant bit of information…but fun)

Next stop – the Canaries. Beautiful beaches (again) – visit 4 of the islands of the Canaries – each with its own personality.

Final stop – Tangier in Morocco. Where Africa meets Europe. What more can I say?

Fantastic and unusual itinerary and the best news is that you get upgraded to a veranda stateroom free of charge.

While on board the Silver Moon you will receive meals, drinks (including champagne), butler service, excursions in each port of call all on board small ship luxury.
