A stunning holiday destination with its majestic skyline
Whatever time of day you arrive in Cape Town on your luxury MSC cruise liner, whether early morning or late evening, passengers are always amazed by the majestic skyline of this South African city and the dramatic Table Mountain that rises above the city’s pretty harbour.
Although one of the busiest ports in South Africa, this is a stunning holiday destination; explorer Sir Francis Drake described it as "...the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth," when he sailed into Table Bay in 1580.
We believe the only drawback you’ll experience in this city lies in knowing what to do first!
As always, MSC Cruises has organised the best on-shore excursion packages and offers great deals on activities and sight-seeing trips in the region.
Venture out of town to South Africa’s famous historic vineyards, or experience world-class shopping in this city, ideal for walking due to its compact, tourist-friendly size.
The adventurous may enjoy a cable ride to the top of Table Mountain, the perfect spot to take in the sweeping, breathtaking views of the Table Mountain National Park.
With world-class global cuisine on the menu in many of Cape Town’s excellent restaurants, there is a lot for gourmets to enjoy, and the authentic local specialities of biltong and curried mince are worth sampling, too.
Cape Town offers a sojourn off the ship that is not to be missed – one that we guarantee will be a memorable highlight of your cruise vacation.
