Cruising the Exotic Canary Islands & Morocco
November 7 - 15, 2014
At the crossroads of Africa and Europe, Morocco and the Canary Islands are vibrant blends of cultures, religions and peoples and are lands of majestic scenery. Born of subterranean volcanic activity and sculpted by the elemental forces of wind and water, the Canary Islands were once thought to be the remnants of the lost continent of Atlantis, poised on the edge of the world.
