About this Itinerary: Morocco is a land of contrasts—from Bedouin Tribes and exotic souks to high end European communities. We have some interesting connections for those of you interested in this area. Take a look at the pre-trip and shore excursions for some great ideas. This itinerary has 4 days at sea as we sail past the Barbary Coast of Mauritania. The sights of the cliffs and the Canary Islands will be amazing. Once we come into Senegal there will be a great deal of activity! The visit out to Gorree Island will be a highlight as will the visit with our friends who have been working here for many years. We are also pleased to visit Guinea – long considered the most beautiful and pristine country in West Africa. Our friends from Mercy Ships will be in the port with us. We will be able to spend some great time with them while ministering here. We will provide respite to some of their workers in our onboard spa and restaurants. What an opportunity to be involved with one of the most famous hospitals in the world! This itinerary can be combined with extensions to Europe and of course North Africa.
