Next cruise to the Atlantic isle of Madeira, decorated in subtropical flora year round. Spirit of Discovery will dock at the heart of Funchal leaving you free to explore the parks, squares and cobbled lanes at leisure, or you can follow the levada channels through its mountainous heart. Then contrast four of the Canary Islands where there are plenty of opportunities to get out and explore on foot. Admire Mount Teide's volcanic terrain in Tenerife, trek through pine forests to dine at a delightful tapas restaurant in La Palma, retrace Christopher Columbus' footsteps in lesser-visited Gomera, and see Fuerteventura's plutonic rock formations on nature walks or a thrilling 4x4 safari. On board you'll be inspired by tales of adventure and can learn how the Canary Island's varied volcanic landscapes were created. Plus, ORCA experts will help you spot whales and dolphins during the best opportunities from Spirit of Discovery's deck.
