|17/08/17||Arrecife, Lanzarote (Spain)||0900||2100||Click for more informationto hide|
A city with maritime roots, Arrecife first appeared on maps in the 15th century as a small fishing harbour. It has since 1852 been the capital of Lanzarote, the northernmost and fourth largest of Spain’s Canary Islands. Lanzarote, which lies just four degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer and enjoys a sub-tropical climate, is volcanic in origin. Arrecife’s Calle Leon y Castila has a wealth of shops and is an opportunity for duty free shopping.

Las Palmas is the capital of Gran Canaria, the third largest of the seven main Canary Islands. With its sub-tropical climate, coastal valleys, beautiful sandy beaches and mountainous peaks, Gran Canaria is a firm favourite with visitors from all over Europe.
|19/08/17||Santa Cruz deTenerife, Tenerife (Spain)||0700||1400||Click for more informationto hide|
The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is dominated by Mount Teide in the central mountain range and several spectacular valleys covered with lush landscape, banana plantations and pinewoods. Santa Cruz, the island's capital, offers a number of museums, and churches to explore together with tempting shops and restaurants. The exotic gardens of Garcia Sanabria Park are worth a visit as is Loro Parque, with its tropical gardens, collection of parrots, and an aquarium with sharks, sealions and penguins.
|20/08/17||Funchal, Madeira (Portugal)||0800||1800||Click for more informationto hide|
Set in a magnificent natural amphitheatre overlooking a wide bay, Funchal is the delightful capital of the beautiful and dramatic island of Madeira. The harbour is right in the centre of town and as you approach the sight of whitewashed buildings with red tiled roofs tumbling down the verdant mountain is spectacular. A modern cable car soars above the bustling city to Monte, which is the start of Madeira’s famous wicker toboggan ride. Wicker baskets, embroidery and the famous Madeira wine are popular souvenirs from the striking island often described as the ‘floating garden of the Atlantic’.
|22/08/17||Lisbon (Portugal)||0700||1400||Click for more informationto hide|
Lying on the Atlantic coast at the mouth of the River Tagus, Lisbon is the westernmost capital in Europe. It was from here that the great caravels set sail on their voyages of exploration and numerous monuments are a reminder Lisbon’s glorious maritime heyday. In 1775 a devastating earthquake all but levelled the city to the ground, and although relatively modern, the Portuguese capital has a quirky charm and much character. The steep, cobbled streets of the ancient Moorish Alfama district lead to wonderful viewpoints looking over the city. Further along the coast the elegant resorts of Cascais and Estoril stud Portugal’s own Riviera.

The Seven Steps Big Band is a London-based big band comprising some of the most exciting up-and-coming jazz talent in the South East. With a band roster of graduates from the London music colleges and Oxford, Cambridge and Durham University, the band first premiered with Cruise and Maritime Voyages in 2012 and has since enjoyed an annual summer guest appearance in the CMV cruise calendar. For 2017, the band is delighted to be performing for this stunning voyage on board the new flagship, Columbus.
The 20-piece ensemble will be showcasing a wide array of big band repertoire to appeal to all tastes and ages, from Swing to Latin, Glenn Miller to Sinatra. They will also be putting on a cabaret evening with their Soul Band, performing a range of motown, funk and blues classics from the 70s and 80s. Finally, in addition to their fabulous show evenings, the Seven Steps will also be offering music and singing workshops on board, giving younger guests of any musical ability an exciting opportunity to take part in musical and singing activities and games.
This engaging group of gifted musicians upholds the great tradition of Big Band cruising that CMV is proud to keep alive to this day, and they are sure to be a highlight of your time on board.
