33 Night Cruise & Maritime Cruise £979 @ Iglu Cruise

21
Found 15th Oct 2015
Seems a great deal for duration and for people who do not like to fly. Does mean quite a few days at sea obviously for translantic crossings. Of course tips are extra like all cruises but I've been with Cruise and Maritime previously and you can opt out of automatic tipping. Excursion list is available on Cruise and Maritime website as is details of transfers available from London Victoria to port. This is an adults only cruise leaving on 7th November 2015.

From canals to world-famous museums, Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world. From here, a course is set for Ponta Delgada in the Azores, where there is an opportunity to explore the cobbled streets and natural island beauty. The white reef-protected beaches of Antigua are a splendid introduction to the Caribbean. With its Dutch colonial flavour St. Maarten is a shopper’s paradise. Picturesque St. Kitts is laid back and Brimstone Hill Fortress worth a visit. Banana plantations, a bubbling volcano and fishing villages all come together in lush St. Lucia. Witness the wonderful scenery of St. Vincent, set for the blockbuster film Pirates of the Caribbean, whilst on idyllic Bequia just indulge yourself. Mayreau, a private island in the Grenadines, is possibly the nearest you will get to tropical paradise offering an optional catamaran tour to the stunning Tobago Cays. Barbados with its British flavour, offers a mix of the familiar and the exotic - glorious golden beaches, towering palms and beautifully landscaped gardens. Enjoy relaxing days sailing the Atlantic before making landfalls in the beautiful island of Madeira and Portugal’s historic capital of Lisbon.Cruise Highlights:On this wonderful voyage of discovery, Magellan will take you to far flung islands full of fascination, sunshine and a warm welcome. Don’t miss these highlights…• Enjoy your first landfall on the Ilha Verde (Green Island) of São Miguel in the Azores. The soil here is so fertile that up to four crops can be harvested a year. Oranges, bananas, pineapples, tea, tobacco, vines and cereals all prosper here.• Despite Antigua boasting beaches, beaches and more beaches, make sure you take in Nelson’s Dockyard and Clarence House at English Harbour as you acclimatise yourself to life in the Caribbean.• Basseterre is the little capital of unspoilt St. Kitts with a lovely town square, the Circus, so named as the square is actually round! The green Victorian Berkeley Memorial Clock in its centre is one of the most photographed landmarks.• Be sure to explore St. Lucia, the most scenic of Caribbean islands, whose green mountains are draped in lush vegetation and the famous twin peaks of the dramatic Pitons rise sheer from the sea.• Mayreau, a privately owned island in the Grenadines, is possibly the nearest you will get to tropical paradise. Visit Tobago Cays for some of the best diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean.• St. George’s, Grenada’s capital, is one of the most picturesque ports in the West Indies, but, you should really spend some time exploring the lush interior and see the jungle of palms, oleander, bougainvillea, purple and red hibiscus and others that flourish there.• Perhaps no port typifies our idea of the classic West Indian island better than Barbados. Seemingly endless stretches of pink and white beaches, plenty of other diversions, historic attractions and fine dining options all make the Bajan case.

    At under £30pp a night you could probably consume more than that in food in a day. My favourite was afternoon tea, yummy scones and smoked salmon sandwiches. Is probably not as modern as other ships but this is probably reflected in the price and cheaper than sitting at home with the heating on!!!!

    Maybe not this time8)
    Great cruise. Great price. Just a shame it's with Cruise and Maritime on a 30 year old cast-off Carnival ship.
    Crazy deal, It costs me more to live here in the UK.
    You better love the vessel, ship maties and sea life, what with 20 days at sea.
    That looks like the pyramid in the back ground

    Fantastic. So around £50 a day for a month of gorging and imbibing yourself to death and when you succumb, you can have a quick and presumably free burial at sea

    I suppose it depends how much you drink, but at £17pp per day (only available for purchase for the entire duration of the cruise and if all occupants of the cabin purchase it) works out an extra £1122 for 2 people which kind of takes the shine of a cracking price

    Totally agree. I guess it depends how much you can drink in 33 days! Drink prices actually very reasonable on Cruise and Maritime, £ currency and similar to UK bar prices.
    Is this the regular price? Or a reduction?

    It seems to be a special offer (probably as a late deal) not a regular price which is over £4K.

    Nice
    Bargain. Hot.
    Wow that's along time at sea,
    What's the wifi connection like ? I may consider that next winter, I could work from home the week going out and week coming back , and so only 10-12 days holiday required
    Pick up some smokes in Amsterdam on the way out, would make it more entertaining
