Morocco with Cape Verde Bridge Cruise

Join us for this brand new 16-night Bridge cruise in partnership with Fred Olsen. Each destination on this captivating itinerary offers a blend of engrossing authentic cultures, traditional charms and fascinating history to uncover as you embrace and engage with the local way of life.

You’re sure to be captivated by the African and Portuguese influenced architecture, music and dance, and the hustle and bustle of daily life, that is showcased in the trio of Cape Verdean destinations we’ll be visiting. During your visit to Praia, you could get a feel for Santiago’s history on a tour to UNESCO-listed Cidade Velha, a former slave trading post, while Mindelo is your gateway to some of Cape Verde’s most spectacular landscapes and volcanic wonders, such as Monte Verde. On Santo Antão island, vibrant Porto Novo is a haven for relaxation, boasting welcoming bars and beautiful harbour, and is overlooked by towering Topo de Coroa, which offers fabulous views from its peak.

After Cape Verde, visits to Agadir, Casablanca and Tangier throw a mix of Morocco’s modern delights and ancient treasures into the melting pot. The buzz of day-to-day life in these cities is something to behold as you explore bustling souks, charming streets and pretty squares, and in each, an abundance of attractions await your discovery. Undoubted highlights to seek-out include the ancient Kasbah of Agadir, and Casablanca’s magnificent Hassan II Mosque, famed for its 210-metre-high minaret. In Tangier, a morning call allows ample time soak up the city’s sights; or perhaps uncover UNESCO-listed Tétouan and its famous ancient medina on tour. Beyond the sites and highlights, you’ve even a chance to learn to cook like the Berbers in Casablanca; and indulge in some rest and relaxation on Agadir’s warm golden sands.

Every evening after dining, we enjoy duplicate bridge sessions with our EBU qualified director and host. As always, we will offer a varied and interesting bridge programme and Masterpoints will be awarded. Our director will also present relaxed Bridge sessions and seminars for you to join on days when the ship is at sea.

Your Accommodation

Bolette

Overview

Proudly bearing the name of Fred. Olsen Jr.’s great-great-grandmother, as many other Olsen vessels have over the years, Bolette exudes classic, elegant style in her exterior and interior design, features spacious and comfortable public areas, and has all the facilities and special touches you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

While she’s one of the largest ships, by overall size, in the Fred Olsen fleet, Bolette has capacity for less than 1,400 guests. So you’ll find that you’re not overcrowded on board, and have plenty of space in which to indulge yourself in the stylish dining venues, enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and fantastic entertainment at the bars, lounges and theatres, and while away the hours by the all-season pool.
