We cruised from Durban on the MSC Sinfonia on the 1st Feb 2010. The Sinfonia cruises without much warning at 2pm, so passengers be ready or else you might miss it (it's very gentle until you leave the harbour when there are 3 large blasts on the horn and you start to feel the swells).

Here's a photo of the passenger terminal at Durban Harbour (N-Shed). Look how small the people look from the top of the Sinfonia.

The viewing deck gets packed whenever the MSC Sinfonia is leaving or arriving at a port.

It's interesting to look at the variety of ships in the harbour going about their jobs as part of the world economic machine:
