Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Durban One of the high points of your holiday on MSC Cruises luxury South Africa cruise is, undoubtedly, when your stunning ship pulls into the diverse and beautiful city of Durban. Seen from the vantage of your MSC liner, Durban’s majestic skyline soars above this bustling port and the sweeping sandy beaches below. MSC Cruises offer some of the best cruise vacation deals around and your shore excursion to Durban tops off our South Africa cruise package with an exciting day out on shore. A unique holiday destination, Durban is situated in the KwaZulu Province of South Africa and is the second largest city in South Africa. Founded by British settlers in 1835, the city was named after Sir Benjamin Durban, then governor of Cape Town. Locally known as Thekwini, Durban is South Africa’s leading beach resort with ideal year-round beach weather and a relaxed atmosphere. Located along Africa’s southernmost tip, Durban has an extraordinary ambiance and is known as Africa’s ‘busiest and best-managed port’. Durbanites truly regard their city as cosmopolitan: a melting pot of cultures, religions and history that has given rise to an extraordinarily rich and appealing destination. Durban is a great place to play, shop, experience nightlife and relax on one of the city’s award-winning beaches. The city’s multi-ethnic character makes it the perfect place to experience the delights of African and Indian cuisine. This holiday oasis offers everything from upmarket shopping malls, traditional arts and crafts, sports, swimming, nature and the arts – with truly something for everyone.
  • Day 2 - Portuguese Island A visit to Portuguese Island in Mozambique is possibly the best way to truly feel you have ‘got away from it all’ on your cruise vacation. Why? Because this island is an uninhabited nature reserve with pristine beaches, dense vegetation, pleasant lagoons and small patches of mangrove, making for a real ‘desert island’ experience! Yes, passengers on our South African cruise will truly experience one of the most amazing corners of our globe as they venture into the tropical island paradise that is Portuguese Island. With our deep experience in organizing on-shore package deals and excursions to Portuguese Island, we can ensure a secure and exhilarating day away from the ship that offers a break from being onboard the luxury cruise liner. Passengers can use transport from the ship (via inflatable zodiac boats) to Portuguese Island for a day full of fun activities, including a beach stroll and a chance to sample local cuisine. The Islands are located next to the larger neighbouring Inhaca Island, which is a Royal Kingdom.
