Itinerary Ports

When you cruise, encounter unique ports of call that are rich in history, culture and natural beauty.

Durban, South Africa

If you want to vacation where South Africa’s locals choose to vacation, then Durban is your spot. Located along the East Coast of South Africa, Durban offers resplendent beaches and restaurants. The city has South Africa’s largest Indian population because during British control of the city many workers were brought over from India to work at the sugar plantations. Durban is also known to have a creative population; many artists, avant garde fashion designers and interior designers have emerged from the city to garner acclaim.

Portuguese Island (Inhaca Archipelago)

Portuguese Island is a breath-taking uninhabited island that lies between the Indian Ocean and the African coast, and is considered to be one of the most exhilarating destinations that a cruise liner can dock on. It is found on the external ends of Maputo Bay, which lies in Mozambique’s capital, and is in close proximity to Inhaca Island, which is home to some of the best resorts in the continent. The island is relatively small hence making it possible to circumnavigate it in a dhow, which is a traditional boat with a triangular sail of Middle-Eastern origins that have been common in the Indian Ocean for centuries. From the island, Inhaca Island is also fairly accessible, and tourists can get to enjoy the restaurants and bars in addition to the magnificent beaches. They can also visit a Marine Museum and old lighthouse.
