The Romans called the Canaries ‘The Land of Eternal Spring.’ It's easy to see why - guaranteed sunshine throughout the year with virtually no rainfall means that the islands play host to millions of international tourists every year.
There's plenty to entertain them, too. With so many places to visit the Canaries literally have something for everyone, ranging from ancient monuments and villas to the stunning volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote.
The virtually perfect climate is year round, so no matter when you visit, there'll be sunshine to soak up, making every trip clear, warm and enjoyable. Relax on board and top up your tan, then head for shore and enjoy the nightlife, the tours and the culture.
Each island has its own micro-climate, from the lush vegetation on El Hierro or La Palma, for instance, to the drier, more African landscapes such as Fuerteventura while Gran Canaria is known as The Little Continent, its terrain is so diverse.
There's always something for the sunseeker in the Canaries, though those looking for culture will find just as much to enjoy in the cities and nightlife that pepper these friendly, vibrant islands.
From the highest standards of luxury to the most personal of service, you can enjoy it all on a cruise through the Canaries. Many cruises begin on the eastern coasts of Spain or Portugal, and hug the northern coast of Africa before sailing through the straits of Gibraltar to the southern European shores.
Whether you join the cruise direct from Southampton or the eastern Mediterranean, or fly to one of the major stopping points and join the cruise en route, you will enjoy the most personal service and attention to detail at every turn.
