Excellent!

Faizal Khan has been wonderful to deal with. He is very knowledgeable and has excellent customer services skills. He made the booking process very smooth and managed to get us a competitive deal.

Fantastic service

My consultant was Amy Darbyshire and I feel like I won the jackpot. Nothing was too much trouble. Lots of ideas, options, price cues etc The service was incredible. If Amy promised to call or email information it happened. I am incredibly grateful to all the help she gave me and I’ve now booked my dream holiday thanks to her.

Day 1 - Malaga

Arrive: Sun 07 November 2021 / Depart: Sun 07 November 2021 at 22:00

Looking out across the Mediterranean, Malaga overflows with an assortment of architectural treasures and Spain's prized jewel, the Alhambra Palace, is within easy striking distance. Andalucia's second largest city, Malaga, is a bustling port on Spain's sunny Costa del Sol. Standing on a hillside overlooking the city is the 8th-century ‘Alcazaba', an impressive Moorish fortress. Malaga's cathedral is affectionately known as ‘La Manquita', meaning ‘the onearmed one' owing to its half-built tower, abandoned in the 1700s due to insufficient funds. During the Arab occupation of Spain, Malaga was the principle port of the Moorish kingdom of Granada. A short drive inland takes you to the heart of this wonderful city and its celebrated centrepiece, the breathtaking Alhambra Palace

Day 2 - Gibraltar

Arrive: Mon 08 November 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Mon 08 November 2021 at 16:00

Gibraltar is only two miles long. This, its duty-free shops and sunshine record make it the perfect place to shop, explore and meet the famous Gibraltan monkeys. Inside and outside, Gibraltar offers lots of opportunities to find out what makes it so appealing. On the rock itself are attractions like the Moorish Castle, the Gibraltar Museum and the cable car ride to Europa Point with its stop to visit the families of famous Gibraltan monkeys. Inside the rock, there are more miles of road than on the outside, including the Great Siege Tunnels and St Michael's Cave.

Day 3 - At Sea

Day 4 - Funchal

Arrive: Wed 10 November 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Wed 10 November 2021 at 18:00

Madeira is more than sweet wine. It's an excuse to enjoy fine beaches, explore beautiful gardens and discover why Funchal is called the Pearl of the Ocean. Whether you want to enjoy a relaxing stroll along the promenade, visit the traditional and colourful flower market in the centre of Funchal, or taste the lovely wine that takes the island's name, Madeira has it all and more. Rising from the sea to the mountainside, the capital, Funchal, is a gardener's paradise with Birds of Paradise flowers, banana plantations, farms and vineyards everywhere. If you go shopping, don't miss the Se, the famous 16th century cathedral. If you have time visit Camacha, east of Funchal, known as the centre of Madeira's willow craft, and the hillside town of Monte which you can reach via a breathtaking cable car ride.

Day 12 - St John's, Antigua

Arrive: Thu 18 November 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Thu 18 November 2021 at 17:00

If you’re a big fan of the beach, prepare to lose your heart to this place. Antiguans like to boast they have a different one for every day of the year. Without doubt, porcelain, palm-fringed sands and still turquoise waters are the star of this island show. But that’s not all Antigua’s got to boast about. Get ready for towns in a rainbow riot of colours. Quiet countryside that slumbers in the sunshine. And cuisine as sublime as those moon-white shores......

Day 13 - At Sea

Day 14 - Amber Cove, Dominican Republic

Arrive: Sat 20 November 2021 at 10:00 / Depart: Sat 20 November 2021 at 20:00

Christopher Columbus was Puerto Plata’s first tourist back in 1492. He was allegedly drawn to the coastline by the city’s shimmering silver appearance, thanks to the fog from Mount Isabel de Torres. Years later, the city – nicknamed the Silver Port – hasn’t lost its unique charm. The area is blessed with some of the longest strips of cotton-white sand on the island. And beyond, there are waterfalls and mountains to explore.

Day 15 - Grand Turk

Arrive: Sun 21 November 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Sun 21 November 2021 at 18:00

Back in 1492 Columbus was one of the first Europeans to set foot on Grand Turk. His visit opened a floodgate and, today, more than 600,000 holiday makers cruise into the island’s port every year. Some come here for the diving – there’s a coral reef with an 8,000 foot drop just off the island’s coast. Others come for the colonial architecture – Cockburn Town has some of the best examples in the Caribbean

Day 16 - At Sea

Day 17 - Montego Bay

Arrive: Tue 23 November 2021 at 09:00 / Depart: Tue 23 November 2021

Nowhere showcases Jamaica’s fun-loving side as well as Montego Bay. Affectionately dubbed ‘MoBay’, the lively north-coast town comes complete with all the Caribbean clichés. Expect a seductive mix of palm-fringed sands, sapphire waters and heady rum cocktails – all set against a soundtrack of laid-back reggae beats. Add a restaurant and bar-filled ‘hip strip’ into the mix, and you’ve got all the ingredients for a let-loose break.......

Marella Explorer 2 From Marella Cruises

Marella Explorer 2, is joining the fleet in summer 2019. Marella Explorer is the ship’s big sister, so you can expect some similar qualities, like a range of restaurants, a Champneys Spa and Indigo – a chic bar-club-casino space. But there’s one big difference between them – Marella Explorer 2’s reserved for adults.
