Day 29 - 33: Crossing the Equator

Day 34: Praia, Cape Verde Islands

You disembark in Praia, the capital of the Cape Verde Islands, at 9:00 hours*. If you’re flying out on the night of April 30/May 1, you have the option of an additional trip to the island of Santiago. Here you can visit the historic Cidade Velha and its massive hillside fortress, built to defend against English raiders. Other sights include the oldest Christian church in the tropics, and the slave whipping post in the main square. Stroll the Praia streets and enjoy the variety of indigenous folk music spilling out of the tavern windows. *If you’re disembarking, you have access to hotel rooms where you can collect your luggage and freshen up before travelling to the airport – or back to your hotel, if you’re staying longer in Praia.
