Cruise bookings typically slow down during school holidays. As a thank you for booking your cruise this week, we will deliver a little fruit basket to your cabin.

Cruise news: MSC Opera news - video of the typical party atmosphere on board a cruise.

Book a cruise this week & get fruity!

Book a cruise with SouthAfrica.TO on the MSC Sinfonia, the MSC Opera or international cruises, and if you pay your deposit after the 2nd July but before 4pm on Friday the 6th July 2012, we will deliver one free, fresh and colourful fruit basket to your cabin! (if you book and pay for multiple cabins, then each cabin will receive a fruit basket).

Winter Warmer Cruise Special

Combine getting fruity with the Winter Warmer special, which has been extended until the 10th July 2012. If you're flying from Johannesburg, it's far easier on the body & soul to spend a night in Cape Town or Durban before your cruise, than the stress of flying in the morning and wondering whether the ship will leave before you get to the harbour.

50% cruise discount

There is now very little availability left on the 50% cruise discount, so it's possible you've left it too late, but worth a try to check if you're interested in those cruises. This cannot be combined with the winter warmer special, but as for all cruises booked through SouthAfrica.TO this week, you will still get a free fruit basket if you book and pay this week.



Since we had 2 weekend specials (Air Mauritius & Mango), let's listen to what the Queen of Pop, Brenda Fassie, had to say about a weekend special (80's era clubbers will be familiar with it).

Something new to do after you fly to London - the Emirates Air Line, a cable car ride across London's River Thames.

SA Tourism has launched a book called "Guide to Vegetarian, Vegan & Jain Dining in South Africa", to cater for the increasing number of travellers from India, China & Brazil (whilst visiting India is a vegetarian's delight, it's possibly not the same for them coming to South Africa). SA Tourism partnered with the SA Chefs Association to produce the book.

The Purple shall rule! "Won't it be possible to use Potchefstroom Airport as a base for domestic flights to Jo'burg, Cape Town, Durban and other big cities? Please? Please? I'm sure many travellers would be very glad." Marianne

The Bottom Line: Travelling with large amounts of cash is risky, even when you're on the right side of the law. In 2009 Christo Wiese had £679,000 seized from him, by the authorities at a British Airport. Finally 3 years later and after much time in court, the UK authorities have been ordered to give him back his dough (I wonder whether they'll pay interest).
