Press Release   •   Nov 04, 2015 16:49 GMT

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is giving guests three added-value benefits on two Canary Islands escapes this Winter – free flights, free drinks upgrade and all gratuities covered! This impressive offer (which cannot be added retrospectively) is available on two of Braemar’s Canaries fly-cruises: a 14-night ‘Canaries & Cape Verde’ adventure, departing on 26th November 2015, and a 13-night ‘Canaries Collection’ holiday, departing on 10th December 2015. With prices starting from just £799 per person and with so much extra included, there is no better time to head for the sunshine with Fred.!

Fred. Olsen’s fantastic treble offer is available on the following cruises:

- Braemar’s 14-night M1531 ‘Canaries & Cape Verde’ cruise, ex London Gatwick / Manchester on 26th November 2015. Prices start from just £899 per person (flights subject to availability).

After enjoying time in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, guests will arrive in San Sebastian, the picturesque capital of La Gomera. Also known as the ‘Isla Colombina’, for its historic links to Christopher Columbus, legend has it that the famous explorer stopped off here on his way to America.

Next comes Praia, in the Cape Verde Islands. Guests can visit the Ethnographic Museum to admire the many artefacts on display, or take a tour to the small town of Cidade Velha, an area full of historical and architectural interest.

Braemar then makes another call in the Cape Verde Islands, this time to Mindelo. Here, guests can relax on the beaches, explore the Camara Square, which has a historic church and a colourful vegetable market, or take a 4x4 Jeep safari through the volcanic landscapes.

Guests can then spend a day exploring Arrecife, in Lanzarote. Relax in the glorious sunshine or, for something a little more adventurous, experience a camel ride through the hissing rocks of Fire Mountain, in the Timanfaya National Park.

A call into Agadir, in Morocco, is next. A Winter sun favourite, with over 300 days of sunshine a year, guests can relax on the long stretches of golden sand, or wander through the modern boulevard, which has plenty of cafés and restaurants.

Braemar then spends a day in Las Palmas, in Gran Canaria. Soak up the mix of Renaissance, Gothic and Neo-Classical architecture, or relax by the sand dunes and palm trees of Maspalomas Beach.

After a call into the capital of La Palma, Santa Cruz, where guests can visit the fantastic Renaissance-style Church of El Salvador and the Church of Santo Domingo, Braemar returns to Santa Cruz, Tenerife, for flights back to the UK.

- Braemar’s 13-night M1532 ‘Canaries Collection’ cruise, ex London Gatwick / Manchester on 10th December 2015. Prices start from just £799 per person (flights subject to availability).

After a day exploring Santa Cruz, in Tenerife, guests will arrive in Las Palmas, in Gran Canaria, for an overnight stay. Next, is Morocco’s exotic Agadir, where guests can visit the Museé Municipal for an insight into the pre-earthquake history of the city.

Next is a stop in the town of Puerto del Rosario, on the island of Fuerteventura, which has a selection of family-owned bars serving tapas, local wines and Canarian cuisine.

Braemar will then cruise to Arrecife, in Lanzarote, for an overnight stay. Take a tour to the Rancho Texas Park to swim with sea lions, or explore the Los Volcanoes Nature Park, together with the Timanfaya National Park, to learn about the spectacular eruptions that took place between 1730 and 1736, and in 1824.

Guests will then say overnight in Funchal, the capital of Madeira. This ‘Garden Island’ has a timeless charm, which is delightfully enhanced by year-round warmth and the beautiful colours and fragrant scents of flowers and fruit. Explore the stunning landscapes along the unique Levada irrigation network, or sample the island’s famous wine.

Guests can then enjoy a day in Santa Cruz, La Palma. Take a tour to the town of Fuencaliente, which offers some amazing panoramic views of the San Antonio volcano and neighbouring island, El Hierro.

Next is a day on the stunning island of La Gomera. Starting in San Sebastian, guests can explore the impressive Hotel Jardin Tecina, owned by the Olsen family, which is set on a cliff top just 500 metres above Playa de Santiago, and commands breathtaking views over the ocean.

Braemar will then set sail for Santa Cruz, Tenerife, where guests can enjoy an overnight stay, before flying back to the UK.

All prices include accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, and port / airport taxes, plus return flights from London Gatwick / Manchester, flight transfers, Fred. Olsen’s ‘all-inclusive’ drinks upgrade and all gratuities.
