Day 1: Casablanca, Morocco | Embark

Around 90 kilometers (56 miles) from Casablanca is Rabat, one of the country's four imperial cities. This modern capital with its historic center was accepted onto the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2012. Hassan Tower, Rabat's landmark, dates back to the time when the city was the Sultanate's capital. Close by, and yet built hundreds of years later, is the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. You can find this regal residence in the elegant French-influenced residential quarter, Ville Nouvelle, with its boulevards and splendid Art Deco colonial buildings.

Day 2: At Sea

Spend the day sunbathing, enjoy the fresh wind breeze, and relax into the day!

Day 3: At Sea

The First Officer provides deeper insights into the fascinating world of a tall ship.

Day 4: Arrecife, Lanzarote

The "Island of Fire", a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, has been continually recreated by volcanic eruptions. A third of Lanzarote is a bizarre lunar landscape of barren, beige-grey lines of hills and "fire mountains". In sharp contrast to this are the snow-white houses, golden beaches, and sparse green vegetation. Its quaint wine-growing areas of La Geria have been declared an all-embracing art form by the Museum of Modern Art. The painter, sculptor, and architect César Manrique understood art as the link between man and nature and made a vital contribution to the look of his island home through his artistic creations.

Day 5: Santa Cruz, Tenerife

The First Officer provides deeper insights into the fascinating world of a tall ship.

Day 6: San Sebastián, La Gomera

Many people consider La Gomera to be the most wildly romantic island in the Canaries. Rugged gorges, craggy hillsides, fertile valleys, and evergreen cloud forests characterize the landscape. The Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, embraces the whole central mountain area and is an unusual little spot. Ancient bay trees, heather bushes as high as trees, and meter-high ferns form a cloud forest where tree moss hangs from the trees and mosses cling to gnarled branches – a truly mystical natural spectacle that has existed for millions of years.

Day 7: Puerto de la Estaca, El Hierro

Volcanic activity has created a wildly romantic and varied natural landscape. A black lava desert and strange rock formations with oddly shaped, wind-defying juniper trees in the south, orchards, vineyards, fig, and almond groves in the north, lush green meadows and pastures in the high plateaus, and perhaps the most beautiful pine forests in the archipelago. El Hierro, the smallest and newest of the Canary Islands, is almost completely edged with steeply sloping, rugged cliffs and the spray from the surging ocean. UNESCO has designated it a Biosphere Reserve.

Day 8: At Sea
