Saga Pearl II offers an informal and enjoyable way to cruise, effortlessly taking you to a host of amazing destinations. With no more than 449 passengers on board, the atmosphere is relaxed and sociable, and despite being small, she still manages to pack in a surprising array of features.
Today you will embark the Saga Pearl II in Portsmouth.
Funchal has a dramatic appearance thanks to its location on the side of an amphitheatre-like valley – if the climb to the top is daunting then you can catch a cable-car up and ride a wicker toboggan back down! If you want to venture yet higher perhaps head to Cabo Girão, an immense sea cliff with a glass walkway 1,640 feet above the water.
The atmospheric colonial heart of Santa Cruz makes it one of the loveliest towns in the Canaries, and the island itself is said to be one of the prettiest. Discover the island’s dramatic scenery with a visit to the primal laurel forest which once covered the entire archipelago, or take a drive along the winding mountain roads.
Relatively untouched compared to its neighbours, the volcanic, cone-shaped island of La Gomera hides an interior of sheer ravines, green valleys and mist covered forests. Scale the peak of El Alto de Garajonay for eye-popping views of the island and maybe even across to Tenerife.
Fuerteventura is an island of vast plains and gentle valleys. Wander around the old harbour area with its traditional Canarian houses, or spend the day stretched out on Corralejo Beach, a stunning stretch of white sand and turquoise sea.
Straddling the River Douro, historic Oporto has ancient roots predating the Roman period. It’s filled with warehouses and cellars where you can taste the city’s most famous export, as well as a fair number of tempting patisseries and chocolate shops – chocolate making in Portugal dates back to the Age of Discovery when explorers discovered cocoa beans in the New World.
Today you will arrive in Portsmouth to end your cruise.
