Opertor was great and very helpful - product seems to be value for money however what upsets is when you have booked really early and then a couple of months before travelling you see the same deal far cheaper - understand that need to fill boats etc however those who book early should not loose out.

Very helpful staff and accommodative as well.

Overview


You’ll uncover distant destinations galore as you head south on this epic journey about Boudicca. After stopping-off at a stylish La Coruña, visits to a string of Atlantic Ocean islands will present beautifully unspoilt scenery and natural wonders, before an African adventure brings you captivating wildlife, vast desert dunes and the landscapes and landmarks of an iconic city. Kicking off your Atlantic island exploration in Macaronesia offers you the chance to delight in the soothing sunshine, spectacular scenes and cultural highlights of Madeira, Portugal’s gorgeous ‘Garden Island’; Tenerife and Gran Canaria – renowned for its year-round warmth and inviting beaches – in the Canaries; and Cape Verde, with calls at Mindelo and Praia. In the South Atlantic, two hard-to-reach, rarely visited islands appear on your horizon. Circumnavigating Ascension and visiting Jamestown offers you chances to admire natural delights, such as the glorious Green Mountain and gorgeous beaches, and explore St Helena’s historic links to Napoleon. On St Helena you can also capture breathtaking views from atop Ladder Hill; and even meet Jonathan the Tortoise – St Helena’s oldest and most famous inhabitant – during a day in Jamestown, too. When you finally reach African shores, Walvis Bay will welcome you to Namibia. A haven for wildlife, Walvis Bay’s beautiful natural lagoon is often dotted with flush pink flamingos and various seabird species including pelicans and cape cormorants. Also within reach of Walvis Bay is the world’s oldest desert, The Namib, home to colossal sand dunes and endemic wildlife such as wild horses and springboks. The vast, unforgiving landscapes of the Namib can also be explored from Lüderitz, although you might be tempted to take a short trip from here to Kolmanskop, with its eerie sand-engulfed ‘ghost town’. Bringing a perfect conclusion to this unforgettable cruise is an overnight stay in Cape Town, South Africa’s magnificent ‘Mother City’. You can take your pick of a collection of world-famous attractions here before you head for home, from the incredible scenery at Cape Point and the penguins at Boulders Beach, to iconic landmarks such as Table Mountain and Signal Hill. Whatever you choose to see and do, you’re sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.

On board, in keeping with the Fred.
