Seeking a holiday that seamlessly blends culture and exploration with comfort and relaxation? Tenerife offers a genuine slice of paradise. Immerse yourself in its culinary delights, witness tranquil sunsets painted in hues of pink, orange, and yellow, and capture the beauty with your underwater camera. While the island boasts countless adventurous experiences, it also offers serene and idyllic settings with glistening waters and powdery-soft sands.
Santa Cruz, Tenerife's cruise port, has evolved from a humble fishing village into a splendid city adorned with classy bars, restaurants, diverse shops, elegant architecture, and intriguing museums. As you dock in Tenerife, the excitement begins just beyond the port gates, where a cafe-lined boulevard leads to the Plaza de España, the heart of the port's primary shopping area. Keep an eye out for great deals on electrical goods and discounted CDs, a specialty of Tenerife. If you prefer museums and galleries, explore the Museo de Bellas Artes, housing works by Bruegel, or delve into the island's history, topography, flora, and fauna at the Museo de la Naturaleza y El Hombre.
A new day, a new island. Las Palmas stands out as one of the most sought-after destinations in the Canary Islands, particularly cherished by those who relish year-round sunshine. The Cruise Terminal, conveniently located just 100 meters from the city centre, is easily accessible with the assistance of our dedicated care team. Established in 1478, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria proudly showcases a rich historical and cultural legacy, much of which is nestled in the Vegueta district—the town's oldest quarter, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. For those inclined towards the beach, Playa de las Canteras is also within convenient reach.
Today we visit the unique island of Lanzarote. The lunar-esque terrain boasts a mesmerising palette of red, orange, and yellow, a result of over 100 volcanic eruptions that occurred in the 1700s. The Ventura will dock in Arrecife, the island’s capital, derived from the Spanish word for 'reef,' a nod to the vast rock reef that blankets the island's beaches. You’ll have the entire day to enjoy its sun-washed plazas, cool bars and atmospheric backstreets. If you’re looking for a little bit of local culture, check out the Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo, which features several works from the island’s most influential artist, César Manrique.

Day Ten of your cruise proves to be a delightful experience. Today, the ship will be making port in the vibrant Portuguese capital of Lisbon, a perennial favourite among Limitless travellers. Ensure your camera is ready, as you'll have the opportunity to capture the charming, candy - coloured scenery and savour delicious custard tarts.
Some of the most stunning views of the Portuguese capital unfold as your ship cruises along the Tagus River, passing iconic landmarks like the Belem Tower and the impressive Monument to the Discoveries, featuring a statue of Henry the Navigator. Upon arriving at the Lisbon cruise port, take note that although compact for a European capital, the city sprawls a bit. It's advisable to focus on specific districts—Baixa, Bairro Alto, and Alfama—each possessing its own distinctive charm. Baixa boasts bustling streets adorned with inviting shops, cafes, and restaurants, while Alfama presents the atmospheric old town characterised by medieval and Moorish-style buildings, wrought-iron balconies draped with trailing flowers, and a mix of quaint shops and bars.
