Cruises around the world

Give yourself the gift of unwinding in the most spectacular setting! What could be more relaxing than a cruise holiday? Explore the deep blue waters and interesting port stops of the Mediterranean Sea, chase sunsets over the Bahamas and the Caribbean, or head out on a fun-filled local MSC cruise from Cape Town or a MSC Cruise from Durban. Maybe you're enamoured with the idea of traditional river cruising? Find yourself exploring the Netherlands or France from the tranquillity of a luxury river boat. 

Indulge in Your Dream Cruise

Choose how you would like to spend your days while floating in luxury: tanning with a book by the pool, exploring the shops on board, or treating yourself to a lavish spa experience, the world is your oyster!

Cruises are also the perfect family holiday. Many cruise ships provide an excellent array of kid and teen activities, such as dedicated indoor and outdoor play areas, discos, movie nights and full-scale child minding and babysitting. While mom and dad enjoy some quality time together, the kids can have the time of their lives!

Browse our range of cruise holiday 2024 packages below, and be sure to keep an eye out for our impressive MSC cruise specials for 2024.

  • Pre-book your Shore Excursions, Drinks, and Added Value packages so that you pay for them beforehand in Rands rather than in dollars once on board.
  • Pack as lightly as possible and use a small carry-on bag. Cruise cabin cupboards are not large, and by taking your bags as carry-ons, you won’t have to wait for your luggage to be delivered much later on the first day.
  • Most cruises are casual affairs and don’t require more than a few summer dresses for women and smart casual outfits for men. That is, unless you choose a more formal cruise where you will have lavish Captain's dinners, and may require more dressy attire.
  • It’s important to remember to pack swimwear, a hat, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen as you will be spending lots of time in the sun.
  • Binoculars are also great to bring along, as you can use these when arriving at new ports and when cruising along coastlines.
  • A useful item to take along is a small box of laundry detergent to avoid paying laundry bills.
  • Take travel sickness tablets whether you get motion sickness or not, as local waters are rougher than those of the Mediterranean.
  • Arrive at the port as early as possible to avoid the queues. Some cruise liners also offer priority boarding, which is a nice treat!
  • Check out all the restaurants on board before selecting where you want to eat, as you don't want to overload on one thing when choice is abundant on offer.
