My husband myself and 2 friends arrived back from the Canaries cruise on 21st October. We enjoyed every minute aboard. The crew were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent with plenty of choices at every mealtime. We missed going to Madeira due to the threat of hurricane Lesley but we had 2 days in Lanzarote to compensate. We were able to travel further afield than 1 day allows. On sea days we found enough to do with the quiz, the lawn area where we played putting and the pools were excellent.
