There are fewer cruises from Cape Town next season and they are filling up quicker than last year.

Cruises from Cape Town

What could be better than sailing from Cape Town with majestic Table Mountain as a backdrop for your keepsake photos? The 2013/2014 cruise schedule has a limited number of Cape Town departures, most of which fall into 2014. We have had a lot of queries for these cruises and don't want any of our readers to miss their chance to go on one of these, so we would recommend not being too complacent about booking! Most of the cruises are on the MSC Sinfonia, but there are a couple on the MSC Opera, and one each on the Nautica, Crystal Serenity and Aurora.

So much talk, so much excitement. Our cruise was booked and we were ready to set sail. Our group of 14 had an early start to the day and we all gathered at the port. We had an efficient embarkation at Durban Harbour and enjoyed lunch until our luggage arrived and rooms were ready. The ship was magnificent and we could not get over all the glass and windows on the ship. It was the first ship cruise for us all and we did not even know where to start. There were views from all parts of the ship. The ship was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. Our cabins were great and the beds were comfortable but we hardly spent any time in there at all.


at the disco on the MSC Opera

The sea days were fun and there were so many events to attend. Unfortunately we were not blessed with very good weather and could not dock at the island but this did not affect us. We were so busy and wished our holiday lasted longer. There was no excuse for boredom and no time to read any of our books that we had packed.


partying on the MSC Opera

The staff on board were extremely helpful and courteous and we were always met with kindness and smiles. Our favourite was Mikayla. Our guys adored her and the cocktails she made and we girls enjoyed the good looking crewman as well. Our guys loved the Pasha Lounge and made sure they were there right up until the doors were being closed in the mornings. The captain’s party was truly amazing. The set up and food was out of this world. We met many new friends and danced the night away under the moonlight and stars. 2 of our guys were also lucky enough to personally meet the captain down below level, had drink and played a round of cards with him. Lucky them….we just never heard enough of that.


true romance on the MSC Opera

On the last day of our cruise my cousin Carl, popped the big question and proposed to Pam on the deck. The crew prepared something special for the couple and we all had some bubbly and fruit and shared in the joy of the happy couple.


All in all we had the most fantastic and memorable time on our cruise. All thanks to Victor Bunjira as well for taking time and having patience with us when we booked our cruise. We are currently getting everyone together to book another cruise on the MSC Opera in January 2014.


Until then and making more memories…..

"Africa's low-cost carriers face strong headwinds. The main problem is that, compared with other parts of the world, costs are not low. Governments impose onerous taxes on fuel and tickets, and airlines are charged higher insurance premiums than established airlines in other countries. Poor safety records and the sluggishness of local courts in dealing with bankruptcies raise leasing costs: leasing a five-year-old Boeing 737 might cost a European carrier $180,000 a month, but a Nigerian carrier has to pay $400,000. Europe's budget-airline boom in the 1990s was made possible by an "open sky" agreement. But in Africa, although a similar treaty has existed on paper since 1988, little has been done to enforce it, in part because governments seem to be wary of allowing in new rivals to compete with their national carriers." The Economist
