If you’re thinking about voyages for 2018, we suggest you put Saga’s Canary Island Constellations Cruise at the top of your list. The British cruise line will be taking passengers to gaze at the stars from a locale that offers perfectly pristine views of the heavens. On this journey, guests will get to attend onboard presentations revealing how to navigate by the stars and they’ll be able to look at celestial bodies from some of the most important observatories in the world, which will be excursions from the ship’s ports.
A Themed Cruise Unlike Any Other
Whether you love astronomy, delve into it part time or don’t know a think about the universe, we think you’ll love this cruise. The theme for the entire trip will focus on the sky, and guest speakers will include top space flight historian and astronomer Howard Parkin, among other experts.
Star Observing Tools
There will be a telescope set out on the deck for this adventure and travelers will be able to enjoy nightly viewing sessions. They’ll also get to use the ship’s sextant, which is an instrument that measures the angle between an object in space and the horizon.
Constellation-Viewing Shore Excursions
On your Canary Island Constellation Cruise, you’ll go on a Sunset and Stars tour leading to Teide National Park, in Tenerife. On Mount Teide, you can take advantage of the limited light pollution to observe crystal clear night skies. You’ll also stop in La Palma, home to the largest telescope on the planet. And, you’ll take a tour to the Pilar viewpoint, which sits roughly 3,300 feet above sea level.
This vacation of a lifetime gives cruisers the opportunity to admire stars and planets in a way unlike any other. You can find out all of the details for the Saga Canary Island Constellations Cruise by visiting Saga’s website.
