Escape the dark days of winter on this sun-drenched festive season cruise. Spend Christmas Day at sea soaking up the rays while the friendly crew take care of all the seasonal festivities. Sail into Gibraltar on Boxing Day to see the astonishing caves and Barbary apes then next day glide into cosmopolitan Casablanca, Morocco’s second largest city and where the ancient and modern worlds blend seamlessly.
