25-day Cruise from Lisbon to Cape Town onboard Marina

EXPERIENCE AN AGE OF EXPLORATION The Age of Discovery marked a dynamic time in world history when European explorers set out in search of great fortunes on the high seas. The remnants of this epoch that changed the world are yours to discover as you sail the western shores of Africa. The Canary Islands were an important way station for Spanish conquerors, traders and missionaries on their way to the New World, while the House of Slaves Museum on the island of Gorée tells the harrowing story of the slave trade in Senegal during this period. Colonized by the French in the 17th century and now the Ivory Coast’s largest city, Abidjan has been called the “Paris of West Africa,” and Luanda was once the Portuguese administrative center in Angola.
