Canary Islands Cruise Holidays
A Canary Islands cruise takes you to 7 stunning volcanic islands, just off the North African Atlantic coast. With a climate that’s hot in the summer and mild in the winter, we at Coop Travel are able to offer last minute Canary Islands cruises throughout the year.
The Canaries are only 70 miles off the coast of Morocco, and cities like Casablanca are often included in itineraries of luxury Canary Islands cruises. Spain, Italy and Portugal are also within easy sailing distance, with practically every Canary Islands cruise including the lush, beautiful island of Madeira on its itinerary. This is in sharp contrast to the lava-covered, lunar landscape of Lanzarote, the sandy Saharan beaches of Fuerteventura, and the towering rain-forested volcanic peaks of Tenerife. Canary Islands cruise deals vary depending on the route and length of the cruise, but bustling Gran Canaria is a regular port-of-call – as are the remote and mountainous volcanic islands of La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.
Although the Canaries can be very hot in the summer months, the African heat is tempered by cooling Atlantic breezes, and cheap Canary Islands cruises are snapped up all year. However, the majority of cruises sail between autumn and late spring, with cheap Canary Islands cruises available from both UK ports like Dover and Southampton, and Mediterranean ports like Genoa. If you want a quick tour of the islands, last minute cruise deals also leave from Tenerife and Gran Canaria, flying there and back.
We at Coop Travel offer no-fly Canary Islands cruise deals through a number of companies, including Fred Olsen, MSC, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean International, Princess and the P&O cruise line, all of which operate from UK ports. A last minute P&O cruise from Southampton offers the chance to sail away from the gloomy British weather and visit winter sunspots like Lisbon, Madeira, Oporto and Tenerife instead.
