Cruise news: Balcony cabins are selling out very fast on the new season (2013/2014) cruises. There are no more balcony cabins left on OP48, the 28 April 2014 MSC Opera cruise from Cape Town to Southampton.

We have nearly finished the 1st quarter of the year and the excitement of a new year beginning is long past. Time for some fun we say! Enter our competition and stand a chance to win a cruise. See the ways to enter below.

South Africa Travel Online is very pleased to announce our first ever competition to win a cruise; where you stand a chance to win if you book a flight, car rental or cruise with us by 31 July 2013 (see details below).

Picture this: The wind tousling your hair gently; a cold cocktail at your elbow; lazily basking in the warm sun whilst considering whether or not to get up and walk the five metres to slip into the pool for a quick dip. Best of all, you didn't have to pay for this experience!

The Prize

And what exactly am I winning, I hear you ask. The MSC Sinfonia is a firm favourite amongst us South Africans and we have secured an inside cabin for 2 adults on this glorious ship, on a cruise to nowhere from Durban. (Departing 30 January 2014 returning 1 February 2014.) We have covered the cabin fare, port charges, service charges and insurance. This covers all your meals, accommodation and limited drinks on the ship (tea, coffee and water). It also includes:

* 3 meals per day (vegetarian choices are served at each meal time and halaal meat is available on board)
* Midnight snacks
* Morning and afternoon teas, coffees, and pastries
* Floorshows and cabaret every night
* Live bands in 3 venues plus nightly party in the Club - dance the night away!
* Dozens of daily activities
* Gymnasium and limited Aerobics classes (some you pay for)

Good news for those wanting to travel to Portugal. TAP Portugal is increasing its Maputo-Lisbon flights to 4 a week from April 2013, for the northern hemisphere summer, and then to 5 a week in peak summer from June to September. This opens up more possibilities for 1-stop flights from Johannesburg to Lisbon, via Maputo.

Ever wonder what happened to the old SA Air Force Mirage F1s? They are now the tiny Congolese Air Force's only planes capable of combat. The Congolese Air Force also recently purchased 2 CN235 transport planes from the Botswana Defence Force (they were in storage at Lanseria Airport).
