Balmoral L1021 14-nights Canaries cruise  7th December

Make a last-minute getaway, and avoid the crowds in the high street – you could be doing your Christmas shopping in the warm and sunny Canary Islands, while enjoying a pre-Christmas cruise. 

Fred. Olsen’s Balmoral has a 14-night cruise to the Canaries, departing from Southampton on 7th December 2010.  First port of call is evocative Casablanca in Morocco – from here, there are excursions to amazing Marrakech, where you can shop for some great ceramics, jewellery and other gifts in the bustling markets.  Then, it is on to the islands of Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma and, finally, the garden island of Madeira, before returning to Southampton. Enjoy the pleasant climate, and explore the white-washed, cobbled villages, and the majestic, volcanic landscape of these delightful islands. The rest and relaxation will put you in great form for the festivities, when you return.

Prices for this relaxing cruise now start from just £729 per person, with a Latesaver deal, based on two adults sharing an inside twin cabin. This price includes all meals and entertainment on board, and port taxes.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Line operates in the UK with four intimately sized ships for a more personal cruising experience.
