SEE MALTA & COMINO IN ONE DAY with Captain Morgan

During this cruise we shall cruise past Valletta, Malta’s Capital City, the Grand Harbour Entrance, Marsascala Bay, St. Thomas Bay, Island Bay and Peter’s Pool, past Delimara Point and Marsaxlokk Bay, Malta’s largest fishing village and past the Blue Grotto, giving you a view of these fascinating colourful caves. The Captain Morgan vessel also cruises past the imposing Dingli Cliffs and the little island of Filfla and past some of Malta’s most popular sandy beaches.
A particular attraction is Anchor Bay. This rocky cove incorporates ‘Popeye’s Village’, the actual set of the film ‘Popeye’ which was shot on location.
We stop at the Island of Comino in the crystal clear waters of the famous Blue Lagoon.
A buffet spread and wine is served by Captain Morgan’s Chef and Stewards. The rest of the day is spent sunbathing and swimming. One may also go ashore to roam around the Island and swim.
Whilst your stay on Comino, optional boat rides to the caves are organised. Tickets for this fantastic 25 minute excursion are sold on board!!!
