Cruise to Madagascar

Did you know that you can get a discount on your next cruise by sharing your photos with us ( of a previous cruise booked with us? Heidi Everett took these wonderful photos on her new years cruise from Durban to Madagascar (Fort Dauphin/Tolagnaro), from the 28th December 2012 to the 3rd January 2013. We always recommend to clients to overnight in Durban so as not to have to worry about their plane being delayed; and after her flight from Johannesburg to Durban, she spent the night in Ballito, at Vetho House (not a bad view, as can be seen from the photo).

One of the pleasures of cruising is having a look at the ships in the harbour and the open ocean, and trying to figure out what they're doing and where they're going. Here's the wonderfully named "Grand Victory" in Durban Harbour.

And away she goes - the floating palace that is the MSC Sinfonia, in full flight.

What's great about the longer cruises to Mauritius, Reunion and Madagascar is that you can get to know the folk on board. And things can get a little bit MAD on a trip to MADagascar - here's some of the fun onboard the Sinfonia.

It's worth waking up early for views like this (if you've had a heavy night you don't even need to photoshop it!)

After a fun voyage at sea, Madgascar's mountains loom large from the decks of the Sinfonia.

And then the Sinfonia docks at the quiet harbour of Fort Dauphin.

Anybody know what this sculpture symbolises? (perhaps ordered by King Julian...oh, wait - that's the movie!) Heidi took the photo from the bus as it drove past.

The locals in Madagascar are friendly.

And after all the fun is over, what better than to rise from dreamland and cruise into Durban harbour, whilst the sun rises on your next adventure.
