About Your Trip

Set sail for the ultimate cruise destination: 10 volcanic islands lapped by warm Atlantic waves. Formed by geothermal fury and the colonial grasp of the slave trade, Cape Verde is today defined by its staccato lava landscapes, rupturing green valleys and serene white sands. Neither West Africa nor Europe, here you’ll be enchanted by morna, the lilting national music, and taken in by morabeza, Cape Verdean hospitality. All shore activities are optional, so depart the ship at your leisure and tailor this trip run by our partners Intrepid to suit you.
