12 SAILING TO THE MED, ZANZIBAR & MAURITIUS 14th October 2017 • 33 nights • Sails from Liverpool (ends Mauritius) Boudicca • Cruise ID: D1724 This incredible voyage takes in a host of mesmerising destinations, from Mediterranean cities all the way to the idyllic islands of the Indian Ocean. Uncover fascinating history, seek out untouched landscapes, discover diverse cultures and search for some of the world’s most amazing wildlife. Palma Reunion Island Zanzibar Stopping first at Cádiz there’s the chance to explore the pretty historic quarter, or perhaps take a trip to neighbouring Jerez – the sherry capital of the world – before heading on to three beautiful Mediterranean islands. Enjoy Mallorca’s palm-lined beaches and stunning scenery during a day in Palma; wander round the ornate walled city and Grand Harbour of Valletta, Malta; and delve into the ancient Greek history of Crete. Then Egypt presents the chance to sail along the remarkable Suez Canal followed by a call into the popular resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, home to breathtaking beaches and incredible coral reefs. A stop at Salalah, Oman – the perfume city of Arabia – will allow time to see the eye-catching Sultan Qaboos Mosque and for you to immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the aromatic Al Husn souk. A string of idyllic Indian Ocean islands are next on the itinerary, beginning with an overnight stay in Zanzibar. Be sure to explore the highlights of historic Stone Town, which include the harrowing slave chambers, 19th century Anglican Church and the Sultana Market. For those who wish to venture further afield, a tour to the intriguing and tranquil Prison Island is highly recommended. Next up is the UNESCO-listed Mozambique Island, where every street, house and brick has its own faded history. At just 3km long, the island is like an open-air museum that’s best explored on foot. There’s no doubt that a visit here will leave you feeling as though you’ve stepped back in time. A call into Toamasina follows, where you can experience the typical Madagascan wildlife and way of life. Visit the Ivoloina Zoological Park for the chance to see various species of lemur, tortoises, chameleons, snakes, frogs and more, or explore the local attractions, which include the main thoroughfare, Boulevard Joffre, and market stalls selling vanilla, spices, fruit and souvenirs. Finally, after immersing yourself in the diverse landscapes of Reunion Island on a hike or exhilarating helicopter tour, you’ll end this epic escapade with an overnight stay in Port Louis, gateway to the stunning national parks and gardens of Mauritius.
