Holiday Overview

Iona is a ship in a class to herself. Run on LNG (liquified nitrogen gas) to make her not only environmentally friendly, but also quieter and smoother. Launched in 2020, whilst she is one of the larger ships, she has the facilities to entertain all including a four-screen cinema, two large theatres, several live-lounges and an atrium that hosts aerobatics and even a pianist!

Explore six exotic ports on this cruise of a life-time. The first port of Funchal is known as the city of gardens, including the fantastic Madeira Botanical Garden. The second port of Tenerife is famous for its black sand landscapes, and some of the best stargazing in Europe. The third port of Las Palmas is the Canaries largest city with a 2.5mile long beach making it a popular tourist destination. 

The next port is the famous Lanzarote, famous for its volcano-clad landscapes, palm tree fringed beaches and clear blue waters.

After your cruise around the Canary Islands, there is still time for more! On the return voyage north, we stop at Cadiz, a city famous for being the oldest city in Western Europe. Having been founded by the Phoenicians as a small seasonal trading post in the 12th Century BCE, the Spanish city of Cádiz is the most ancient still-standing city in Western Europe. Your final port to experience is an overnight port in Lisbon. The unique architecture, tram's running up the many winding streets, and incredible food including a type of custard-tart only found here!

Day 8 - Arrecife de Lanzarote, Spain

Lanzarote is synonymous with a sometimes-alien, always-striking natural beauty. Volcanoes and lava fields define the landscape, impossibly-shaped rocks perch on improbably balanced outposts and black sand beaches compete with traditional, tropical palm-lined coast for your attention. A UNESCO Geopark, the island is a fascinating destination that enchants and enthrals all visitors to its volcanic shores.

Iona will dock in Arrecife, the island’s capital, and you’ll have the entire day to enjoy its sun-washed plazas, cool bars and atmospheric backstreets. If you’re looking for a little bit of local culture, check out the Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo, which features several works from the island’s most influential artist, César Manrique.
