All aboard for Saga Sapphire's two all-inclusive winter sun cruises
Whether guests choose from a December 2016 or December 2017 sailing, travel insurance and gratuities are also included the price.
Canaries to Casablanca
14 nights from £1,959, departing on December 1, 2016
Climb the slopes of Mount Teide or enjoy stargazing in Tenerife, go whale-watching in La Gomera or board a RIB for dolphin-watching off the coast of Madeira on this winter sun cruise which sails from Southampton.
The first port of call is Madeira, known as The Floating Garden of the Atlantic for its lush landscape and beautiful gardens.
Saga Sapphire sails on to the Canary Islands with calls at Santa Cruz, Tenerife; San Sebastian, La Gomera; Las Palmas and Gran Canaria before cruising to the Moroccan cities of Agadir and Casablanca. The last port of call, El Ferrol in Spain, is well-placed for visiting the medieval holy city of Santiago de Compostela.
Canary Island Medley
13 nights from £1,749 departing on December 8, 2017
Leave the cold winter weather behind and head to the warmth of the Canary Islands, Madeira and Spain on this pre-Christmas cruise.
In Madeira, there’s an option to take a four-wheel drive safari through the island’s mountains and valleys before 720-passenger Saga Sapphire sails on to four Canary Islands - Santa Cruz, La Palma; Santa Cruz, Tenerife; Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and Arrecife, Lanzarote. La Coruña, in Spain, is the last port of call. The city is perched on the north-west coast, with an interesting mix of handsome squares and Romanesque churches to explore.
