This voyage will allow you to explore areas of the South Atlantic Ocean including Ascension Island and the Cape Verde Islands. This voyage does not take you through Antarctica but is instead a common extension of the Atlantic Odyssey A (Part I) voyage which begins in Antarctic and heads north through the Atlantic Ocean.

Day 01 : Depart Ascension Island

You will meet up with the ship already at Ascension Island and observe the rich wildlife before our departure.

Day 02-06 : Crossing the Equator

At sea, we witness the northbound spring migration of birds like Arctic Terns and Long-tailed Skuas which will join us to cross as we cross the equator.

Day 07 : Cape Verde Islands

Today we will land at Fogo, the great vulcanological laboratory of the Cape Verde Islands. Here we will see fresh lava preserved by the dry atmosphere of the islands. We plan to land near the capital of Sao Felipe and embark on an excursion to the very crater of the village of Portela where wine is made. Though not the most impressive blend in the world, it is not an experience worth missing. We will return to Sao Felipe and relax for a while before returning to the ship for an early dinner. Afterward, we will take on an evening Zodiac cruise in search of sea birds before nightfall.

Day 08 : Praia, Sao Tiago

We will arrive at Praia on Sao Tiago, the main island of the southern group and take an excursion to Cidade Velha. Here we will observe the massive fortress built to deter English marauders during the time when Spain and Portugal were united. We will see the ruins of the cathedral, the oldest Christian church in the tropics as well as the former slave whipping post in the main square. The village is home to plantations of sugar cane, a rum distillery, and various species of birds. We will take another guided stroll around the city of Praia experiencing its variety of folk music as we pass by the various bars. Shortly after midnight we will fly to Lisboa, Portugal. Passengers will also have the option of disembarking in Praia the previous evening should you wish to stay and enjoy the sites before continuing on to Lisboa.
