Leave our winter behind AND save on those heating bills, with a Cruise from the UK!

Imagine ……. after all the excitement, stresses and strains of a hectic Christmas & New Year, this enticing escape to the winter warmth of the beautiful Canaries is the perfect way to settle into the New Year. Solent Events on Tour has the opportunity to offer you some Winter Sun in early January 2023, cruising to the WINTER WARMTH of the CANARY ISLANDS  from the UK, so NO flying! 

This new ship is just  beautiful. After being invited on board with a small group of VIP guests to view Bolette whilst she was berthed in  Southampton,  I can now see what all the excitement was about when launched in August 2021!
Akin to Fred. Olsen’s cosy, friendly small ship, Braemar, it is a really lovely ship and I cannot wait to show her off to my Solent Events clients when we cruise to Spain and the Canary Islands next January!
