There are 13 entertainment venues throughout the ship, from up-beat bands playing poolside, to stunning acrobatics in the SkyDome. The choice is yours!

Madeira, Portugal

< >

Our first port of call is the tropical island of Madeira. After breakfast, our Care Team will help you depart the ship to begin exploring. Renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, the Atlantic island of Madeira earned the nickname 'floating garden' due to its abundance of subtropical flowers and plants. These botanical treasures originated from bulbs and seeds brought by British merchants who arrived on the island, having amassed their fortunes through the sale of wine.


Tenerife, Spain

< >

Today you'll wake up to the impressive sight of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. Enjoy breakfast overlooking the mountainous and rugged volcanic landscape. With the help of the Limitless Care team and the local shuttles, we will visit Plaza de Espana in the heart of the island. Known for its architectural gems, including the captivating 16th-century Iglesia de la Concepción, and it's brilliant shopping, the perfect opportunity to pick up a souvenir or two. In the evening we'll return to the ship with plenty of entertainment to enjoy.

Las Palmas
Las Palmas

Las Palmas, Gran Canaria

< >

Another day another island. Las Palmas is perhaps the most popular destination in the Canary Islands, loved by those who enjoy year-round sunshine. The Cruise Terminal is 100-meters from the city centre, easily reached with the support of our care team. Founded in 1478, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria boasts an important historical and cultural heritage, much of which can be found in the district of Vegueta, the oldest quarter of the town, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. Prefer the beach? Playa de las Canteras is also within easy reach. You’ll be able to disembark at 8 am and the ship won’t leave until 10 pm, giving you a whole day to explore.

Limitless Travel

Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura

< >

Explore the city's rich cultural heritage Puerto del Rosario by visiting its many art galleries, museums, and historical landmarks, such as Casa Museo Unamuno and the Iglesia Nuestra Señora del Rosario. Or take it easy on the seafront promenade, soaking in the warming rays and picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean.


Lanzarote (Arrecife), Canary Islands

< >

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. Iona 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.

Cádiz is an ancient port city and the home of the Spanish Navy, the port boomed in the16th-century as a base for exploration and trade. It has more than 100 watchtowers, including the iconic Torre Tavira.


Lisbon, Portugal

< >

Today we arrive into Lisbon, and what an arrival! Cruise past the Belem Tower, once a significant embarkation and disembarkation point for legendary Portuguese explorers like Vasco de Gama. We'll also sail under the city’s impressive suspension bridge, an engineering marvel. Enjoy a potter around the port with the support of the Limitless team. We recommend trying the scrumptious pastéis de nata. These delectable custard tarts are a true delight.
