And because the Canary Islands and all other small groups of islands have been something of a cause celebrate for me over COVID, and they are jewels of the world at any time.
This one, from our pals at MSC, is for those of you love your action heroes.
You’ll sail on the MSC Magnifica, departing Southampton on May 16. You’ll call first at Tenerife.
Where you’ll get to walk around Europe’s most popular national park, the awesome Teide National Park.
And seeing you’re a comic book nut then you won’t need me to tell you that this is the backdrop for the much-anticipated The Eternals.
And that famous battle scene, which is set for release next year.
While you all should know by now our misadventures on our trip around the fjords with MSC.
Prices start from €1495pp for a 12-night sailing based on two people sharing a cabin.
And you’ll visit Lisbon, Funchal. Las Palma de G.Cranaria, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Arrecife de Lanzarote and Vigo.
The price includes a premium drinks package and service charge.
Hay’s days are here again
And I’m always interested in meeting fellow cruiseheads which is why I’m sharing a virtual spot today by the rail with Hay’s Travel.
So let’s jump in with their Iberian Special.
Hays are offering as their Cruise of the Day this wet old day (at least here in the OoooK) six nights visiting Spain & Portugal with a balcony cabin for May 28 for just £599.
You’ll sail from Southampton on Princess and you’ll get to avail of their Medallion magic key which gets you everything you wanna on the ship.
And I have mine burning a hole in my drawer from seeing how it works on Princess’s stop off in Dublin last year.
But if you want a reminder Hays recaps that it will allow you to order food and drinks from your Medallion wristband.
Or you can clip it on the tape of your shirt.
While it also helps you track down your loved one.
Well, there are bars galore on the ship if your Scary One needs to find you, if you’re anything like me, that’s where you’ll be!
Again what would a cruise be if you didn’t get a chance to warble on the karaoke machine and The Voice at Sea will give you that.
While there are Movies Under The Stars.
And I kid you not on one cruise they had Dirty Dancing on when I passed by the pool one evening.
Which meant I had to look out for a waif of a woman to lift above my head for my Murty Dancing reprise.
If it’s pampering you want then Princess has been voted Best Spa at Sea.
And get this! There’s a free upgrade to balcony class.
A new cruiseday
And if you’re checking your calendars, yes, you’re Cruiseday Tuesday special has now moved a day to become Cruiseday Wednesday.
I could tell you it’s a well thought out master plan. Let’s go with that and see if it sails.
MEET YOU ON THE SEA
