Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa Sat 09 Dec 2023

Cape Town

With its spectacular scenic views, wonderful wildlife and fantastic food and drink, Cape Town is a dream destination for any travel enthusiast.

Azamara Pursuit, Azamara

At Sea Sun 10 Dec 2023

Azamara Pursuit, Azamara

Azamara Pursuit is the perfect place to spend a sea day, learn about the destinations and immerse yourself in the world in The Den. Treat yourself to something in the Pursuit Shop or something beautiful jewellery from Indulgences. For a taste of Italian, head to Aqualina, a speciality restaurant with an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, this is included for suite guests.

Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Port Elizabeth, South Africa Mon 11 Dec 2023

Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Immerse yourself in one of the sunniest destinations in all of South Africa—Port Elizabeth. Home to vibrant communities, worldly flavors, and safari-worthy wildlife, Port Elizabeth (or PE as the locals call it) is a piece of paradise on Nelson Mandela Bay. Our South Africa cruises give you the chance to explore PE’s townships for a deeper look at what makes the Rainbow Nation so diverse. Embrace the sense of community known as Ubuntu, shop in the lively marketplaces, and visit a shebeen (pub) to share homemade umgqoboti—a popular traditional beer—with the locals. Then, chase the surf and an endless summer at Hobie Beach, where the warm waters and refreshing breezes are perfect for relaxing under the sun.

East London, South Africa

East London, South Africa Tue 12 Dec 2023

East London, South Africa

With the rugged and aptly named Wild Coast to the north, and the Sunshine Coast to the south, immerse yourself in the surrounding scenic beauty of East London, affectionately known as “The Buffalo City.” With an African backdrop, English connections extend beyond the city’s name, and traces of German heritage are also seen in the well-preserved, charming 19th-century architecture.

Maputo, Mozambique

Maputo, Mozambique Thu 14 Dec 2023

Maputo, Mozambique

A medley of African and Mediterranean influence is abundant on cruises to Mozambique’s bustling capital and center of commerce. Settled by the Portuguese in the 1700s, centuries of travel and trade from Africa, Asia, and Europe created Maputo’s vibrant, diverse cultural scene. Easily explored by foot, Maputo’s Old Town stretches northeast from the port. From here, the city’s most prominent street, Avenida Julius Nyerere, parallels the coastline and passes the sprawling Presidential Palace and the stunning Hotel Polana. Peruse local boutiques and vendors for bright African waxprint and woven fabrics, Batik cloth, wood carvings, or any type of cashew imaginable (they're Mozambique’s second biggest export).

Richards Bay, South Africa

Richards Bay, South Africa Fri 15 Dec 2023

Richards Bay, South Africa

Perched on the lagoon of the Mhlatuze River, Richards Bay is one of the largest and deepest natural harbors in South Africa. It’s also one of the main gateways to KwaZulu-Natal province and Zululand, the much larger inland region popular for its mountains, diverse wildlife, and vast surrounding savannah ecosystems.

Durban, South Africa

Durban, South Africa Sat 16 Dec 2023

Durban, South Africa

Often overlooked in favor of trendy Johannesburg or popular Cape Town, sunny Durban has been on the rise since it got revitalized to help host the 2010 World Cup, and is an unexpected delight on any cruise to South Africa. Thanks to its golden beaches, Indian influences, and nearby natural wonder, you’ll understand why South Africans love to vacation here as soon as you step on shore. The city is home to the proud Zulu people, and the largest Indian population in Africa. Weave in colonial Victorian architecture with ornate mosques, and the rich tapestry of world cultures is found around every corner. It’s a place where Catholic church spires mingle with minarets. Where calls to prayer blend with sounds of buzzing Indian markets. Where the cheers of a soccer match pulse to the rhythm of native drum beats
