Enjoy 12 nights winter warmth in the Canary Islands & Portugal escorted by our Limitless Care Team
Taste the tapas in Spain explore the mountainous landscapes of Lanzarote, cruise to Lisbon and of course spend some amazing days at sea while on P&O's impressive Ventura ship.
Explore five exotic ports on this cruise of a life-time. The first port of Funchal is known as the city of gardens, including the fantastic Madeira Botanical Garden. The Second port of Las Palmas is the Canaries largest city with a 2.5mile long beach making it a popular tourist destination. Visiting the picturesque Gran Canaria followed by the next port of the Lanzarote, famous for its volcano-clad landscapes, palm tree fringed beaches and clear blue waters.
After your cruise around the Canary Islands, there is still time for more! Your final port to experience is Lisbon. The unique architecture, tram's running up the many winding streets, and incredible food including a type of custard-tart only found here!
P&O Ventura was launched in 2007. This mid-sized ship had a multi-million pound face-lift in 2013, creating a luxurious cruise-liner with modern surroundings. The contemporary feel of the ship continues throughout its cabins, where burgundy and cream décor is accented by dark wood fixtures and finishing touches by British designer Nick Munro.

Today your adventure begins! Home-pick up (within the first 100miles, further distances charged at £2.50 a mile), or pick up at Southampton Airport, or free parking for the duration of the cruise included. The Limitless Care Team will be on hand to assist with embarkation and to get you settled into your cabin.
Relax with a continental breakfast in your cabin before spending the day exploring the ship. Our Limitless Care Team will be on-hand to help and support, finding the best activities to get involved with. There is always something going on such as live music, karaoke, bingo and other organised events - along with the use of the fantastic swimming and steam room facilities.
We're cruising closer to the Canary Islands now! Relax in one of the four on-board swimming pools (hoist available) including the infinity pool at the very back of the ship! There are also hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms available to use!
Relax in the sunshine as you cruise through the Bay of Biscay. Sea days can be spent in any of the four pools on board; with the Riviera Deck aft hosts the much quieter Terrace Pool. All provide the perfect place to relax poolside, watching the waves ahead shimmer in the sun. The Beachcomber pool boasts a retractable roof, so even if the weather should fail you, the pool time fun doesn’t have to stop.
Cruise visitors here will discover that the market town is easily walkable although, the further inland you explore, the steeper and narrower some of the streets become. Locally made wicker furniture, lacework and tapestries all make good buys along with the ubiquitous Madeira wine. Funchal is also the base for tours to the islands botanical gardens; the fishing village of Camara de Lobos where Churchill went to paint; Camacha, the wicker centre; the levada walks, part of an ancient irrigation system; and to Reids Hotel for traditional afternoon tea, making cruises to Madeira a must see.
After an enjoyable breakfast, we arrive at La Palma, known for being the greenest island in the Canaries. Santa Cruz is a small city to port at, enjoy a potter around the port or book a complimentary Afternoon Tea on board where you can take in the views around you.
On Day Seven, we’ll arrive in Gran Canaria, the most densely populated of the Canary Islands and possibly the most naturally diverse, too. You’ll get to see a little of the island’s natural beauty as we approach, before the ship docks in the Santa Catalina cruise terminal.
Lanzarote is synonymous with a sometimes-alien, always-striking natural beauty. Volcanoes and lava fields define the landscape, impossibly-shaped rocks perch on improbably balanced outposts and black sand beaches compete with traditional, tropical palm-lined coast for your attention. A UNESCO Geopark, the island is a fascinating destination that enchants and enthrals all visitors to its volcanic shores.
Ventura will dock in Arrecife, the island’s capital, and you’ll have the entire day to enjoy its sun-washed plazas, cool bars and atmospheric backstreets. If you’re looking for a little bit of local culture, check out the Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo, which features several works from the island’s most influential artist, César Manrique.
Another day to relax and explore the ship! With 12 onboard restaurants, you won't be short of choices. The Cinnamon and Saffron restaurants offer Freedom Dining, allowing guests to dine at whatever time and whichever table you please. The Bay Tree restaurant offers more traditional Club Dining, with passengers choosing between a 6.30pm or 8.30pm sitting, eating at the same table each night.
Some of the best views of the Portuguese capital come as your ship cruises along the Tagus River. You pass the Belem Tower and the impressive Monument to the Discoveries with its statue of Henry the Navigator before arriving at the Lisbon cruise port. Although small for a European capital, this city does sprawl a little so you would do best to concentrate on three districts - Baixa, Bairro Alto and Alfama, each with its own distinctive style, making Lisbon cruises a must see.
Relax into a day at sea with the Limitless Care team. Our team will be available to help with the activities. Watch a headline show at the theatre, get involved in karaoke in the British style pub or lounge under the Metropolis Skydome.
