16 INDIAN OCEAN ISLANDS & ZANZIBAR 14th December 2017 • 14 nights • Sails from Mauritius Boudicca • Cruise ID: D1727 • Newly-released Embark on this special sailing around the idyllic Indian Ocean islands for the chance to relax on the paradise beaches of the Seychelles; uncover Zanzibar’s fascinating history; and explore Mayotte’s vast lagoon. All this and more, topped off with a magical Christmas Day at sea. Your exotic journey of discovery begins in Port Louis, a city famed for its cultural and economic diversity. To see a colourful snapshot of everyday Mauritian life, head to the lively covered market, explore the Stamp Museum, and marvel at the city’s religious structures – from the impressive Kaylasson Temple to the beautiful Chinese Pagoda. Venture a little further afield and you can explore some of the island’s breathtaking natural wonders, such as the Trou-aux-Cerfs Volcano and the ‘Seven Coloured Earth’ sand dunes; or opt for a tour to Casela National Park for the chance to walk with lions. Then it’s on to the spectacular Seychelles, sailing first to Praslin Island. Here you can explore the UNESCO-listed forest of Vallée de Mai in search of huge Coco de Mer nuts and rare Black Parrots, or simply relax in paradise on Anse Lazio, a beach that’s regarded as one of the world’s best. On a boat trip to uninhabited Moyenne Island, during your call into Victoria, Mahé, you’ll have the chance to encounter friendly, giant land tortoises. That’s all before sailing by Silhouette Island at sunset – a simply unforgettable spectacle. Next, Zanzibar’s fascinating history is waiting to be explored during your day-long call to the beautiful Tanzanian island. Among the many historic attractions are the chilling slave chambers, the old fort and the House of Wonders. Alternatively you can make the most of the sunshine on the white sand beaches, or go scuba diving among the protected barrier reefs. On Christmas Eve, you can spend a relaxing day strolling around the dusty streets of charming Mamoudzou, or perhaps take in the highlights of Mayotte, including the Indian Ocean’s largest lagoon; it is home to tropical fish, dolphins and over 250 different species of hard coral. Christmas Day and Boxing Day will be spent at sea, with all the very best festive food and fun, before Boudicca docks in Port Reunion, the gateway to Reunion Island’s sweeping volcanic landscapes, dense forests and beautiful waterfalls. Opt for an awe-inspiring helicopter tour for breathtaking views into the ravine of the island’s active volcano and of the surrounding countryside.
