Discover the Atlantic's hidden island gems on this opulent Silversea cruise. With butler service in every suite, you'll sail in trademark luxury from Lisbon, exploring the remarkable Macaronesia region in the North Atlantic. You'll explore Portugal's remote Azores as well as colourful Madeira before exploring the dramatic rugged coasts and whitewashed houses of Spain's volcanic Canary Islands. You'll even touch the African continent, with a visit to Tangier, Morocco. With restful days at sea in between, you'll enjoy outstanding gastronomic experiences, along with panoramic views from the ship's contemporary open-air sky bar.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK to Lisbon

Begin your holiday in style with included UK airport lounge access before boarding your flight to Lisbon. After a short flight, arrive in the Portuguese capital where you'll be transferred to the nearby port. Settle into your chosen contemporary suite before indulging in the first of your included dinners. You'll set sail later this evening.

Day 2
At sea

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is going to the gym, visiting the spa, whale watching, catching up on your reading or simply topping up your tan, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Stay: Silver Moon 

Meals: B L D

Days 3-4
Ponta Delgada, Azores

With simple beginnings as a small fishing village, Ponta Delgada - where you will stay overnight - is now the main port of the Azores' largest island São Miguel. As you approach the island, you'll notice a backdrop of spectacular volcanic vistas, steaming hot springs and impressive landscaped gardens. Today you'll have the chance to pick from a number of included excursions. Why not opt to wander between monochrome churches and beautiful botanical gardens on the Ponta Delgada city tour. Or perhaps choose to discover the splendid natural beauty of the island on a half-day sightseeing trip including Ribeira Grande - a pretty municipality on the north coast of the island - and Lagoa do Fogo, a large crater lake with breathtaking views. This evening you'll set sail in a south-easterly direction as you prepare for dinner.

Stay: Silver Moon 

Meals: B L D

Day 5
Praia da Vitoria, Azores

You'll arrive at Praia da Vitória on Terceira island this morning as you enjoy a sumptuous breakfast. Stationed in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, and as the third largest island in the remote Azores, just over 20% of its landmass is classified as a protected national park. Endemic juniper and subtropical forests dot its interior while jagged volcanic rocks and spectacular cave systems line its shores. Choose from a number of included excursions, from an island discovery tour to exploring the ancient caves of Algar do Carvão. If you're looking to stay close by, Praia da Vitória is laden with history dating back to the 15th century. With a smattering of narrow streets, recently modernised marina promenade and a myriad of architectural marvels, the town retains plenty of its past grandeur.

Stay: Silver Moon

Day 6
Day at sea

Enjoy another relaxing day at sea as you travel from the outlying Azores to green and rugged Madeira, made famous for its wine and warm, subtropical climate.

Stay: Silver Moon

Meals: B L D

Days 7-8
Funchal, Madeira

Awash with colourful sub-tropical plants, traditional stone houses with terracotta rooftops and dramatic cliffs, Funchal is the lowkey capital of Madeira. Blessed with year-round sunshine and fertile wine lands, it is the perfect place to slow the pace and toast the thrilling scenery with a bottle of the island's famous wine. Indeed, a visit to Blandy Wine Lodge on an included excursion offers a first-hand chance to sample the world-famous produce. If however you prefer to take in the wonderful views of Funchal, opt for a toboggan and cable car ride on a half-day excursion. Return to the ship in time for dinner and departure this evening.

Stay: Silver Moon 

Meals: B L D

Day 9
Las Palmas, Gran Canaria

The sprawling capital of the Canaries is Spain's ninth biggest city, stretches out along a sparkling coastline. An offshore barrier of lava strips waves of their power, making Las Canteras's urban beach expanse one of the best and calmest in the Canaries. Strap on your snorkel to explore the seabed, which blooms with colourful fish and tropical reefs. Or, settle back to soak in the warm glow of one of the best climates in the world, while reclining on the soft sand, which arcs along the capital's fringe. At the other end of town, La Vegueta old town is a charming stroll along cobbled streets, wandering past decorative doorways and balconies that beg to be photographed. The narrow 15th-century streets take on an extra romantic air in the evenings, as lanterns cast a soft glow over them. Calle Colon offers a hint of the street's history,  and it's here where the handsome colonial house - turned museum - of Christopher Columbus stands. Columbus stayed here to recuperate, between his boundary-redefining voyages.

Day 10
Arrecife, Lanzarote

Nestled on the east coast of Lanzarote, Arrecife takes its name from the rocky reefs and outcrops that dominate its coastline. This working city has a friendly, authentic feel, and has managed to remain true to its roots as a historic fishing village. Lanzarote’s charcoal desert vistas radiate a remarkable luna-like quality, but dotted cacti, waving palms, and bursts of vibrant wildflowers add an accent of colour to the canvas. Standing tall for more than four centuries, Castillo De San Gabriel is located on the tiny island of Islote de los Ingleses, and was once a target for pirates, who would appear menacingly on the Atlantic’s horison. The stalwart 16th-century fortress now serves as the History Museum of Arrecife, and exhibitions inside explore the evolution of the city, and the ancient culture of Lanzarote. The International Museum of Contemporary Art, meanwhile, displays modern and abstract works within the 18th-century San José Castle’s refined setting.

Day 11
Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Although this busy port city is smaller, quieter and less obviously attractive than Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, Santa Cruz has its own share of elegant monuments. Until 1837, the island's capital was La Laguna, not Santa Cruz, so there are only a few of the buildings in the city centre that are any older than that. At the busy Plaza de España, there are several pedestrian streets leading north and to the area west of the port, where you'll find the city's stunning auditorium and maritime park. A real highlight of the city are its ramblas, long tree-lined boulevards that fall steeply from the north end of the city to the sea.

Stay: Silver Moon 

Meals: B L D

Day 12
Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura

Drop anchor in Puerto del Rosario today, a busy port town on Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. Geographically part of Africa and politically part of Europe, the island is popular for water sports, particularly windsurfing and waterskiing. Puerto del Rosario itself is notable for over thirty large murals on walls and houses, depicting everything from Spanish culture to superheroes, creating photo opportunities galore. You'll also find plenty in the way of sculptures dotted around the city, designed by local and international artists alike. Take the chance to explore the arid interior of the island, along with the famed sand dunes of Corralejo on an included jeep escapade. Alternatively, we recommend a relaxing day on an included kayaking and snorkelling excursion from one of the island's most idyllic beaches, La Lajita, located right in front of a charming fishermen town from where it takes it name. Depart late afternoon before settling down for dinner in one of the ship's many restaurants.

Day 14
Tangier

Set on the Maghreb coast, Tangier is Africa’s outstretched hand to Europe. With its bustling markets and lively waterfront, this city on Morroco's north is an energetic and invigorating place and an exciting immersion into an incredible continent. The location, on the highly strategic narrowing of the Strait of Gibraltar, made Tangier a vital Phoenician trading town - and the resulting city is an invigorating mesh of cultures and curiosities. Part of the fun of Tangier is the well-rehearsed dance, as you dodge good-natured hawkers, and this is certainly a place to stroll with confidence and purpose. Delve into the mayhem of the walled Medina of Tangier for a rush of stimulation, as bartering and bantering echoes along the tight alleys. From Tangier, you can also venture inland to the Rif Mountains, where gorgeous Chefchaouen - a village of bright blue alleyways - awaits. Punctuated by blooming flowers, the entire town is a beautiful, moulded artwork of colour, spilling down the mountain like a waterfall.
