10 Best Value Cruises

Getting value for money is about minimising how much you spend per day on a cruise. To demonstrate this, we've ordered cruises by how much they cost for every night at sea, to show you which give you the most bang for your buck. The cheapest cruises are the longest cruises - Italy to Cape Town on the MSC Opera and Cape Town to Italy on the MSC Sinfonia, followed by the cruises between Cape Town and Durban.

The last time I travelled with Mango was on 9/08/2013 from dbn to Johannesburg. To my surprise we arrived earlier than anticipated and I was afraid I'd have to wait at the airport for my girlfriend to arrive. I don't like turbulence and our flight was smooth and settled. Thank you so much. I am travelling to JHB quite often because my girlfriend and child stays there. It's not easy but Mango makes it easier because of their affordable flight rates. With Mango, I can maintain my relationship with my girlfriend and child. Mango Airlines plane parked at Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg
