Cruise itinerary

Day Port Due Depart
1 Fly from the UK
2 Cape Town
Cape Town
Cape Town is the 'Mother City' a cosmopolitan, vibrant city with stunning beaches and welcoming climate.
PM
3 Mossel Bay AM PM
4 Indian Ocean - Cruising
5 Richards Bay AM PM
6 Maputo
Maputo
Five hundred years of Portuguese rule have left their mark on Mozambique’s capital while the scars of civil war 30 years ago thankfully go on healing. Street signs around Maputo still celebrate names like Mao, Marx and Lenin but the free market economy is gathering pace. Hotels such as the elegant Polana are back to their colonial best, street cafés serve up spicy peri-peri platters, bustling markets trade spectacular batiks and hand-crafted drums while the languid surf goes on teasing the sands of the Baia’s pristine beaches.
AM PM
7-8 Durban
Durban
Three-wheeled Tuk Tuk open cabs ply the Golden Mile, Durban’s palm-lined promenade. Restaurants and oriental bazaars like the Victoria Street Market are fragrant with spice and incense, all reminders that these shores look out over the Indian Ocean and exotic Asian destinations beyond. Follow the arts and crafts trail, go golfing or fishing, visit a crocodile farm or head inland to the game reserves of KwaZulu Natal, veldts that lead the eye to the craggy peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains.
PM PM
9 East London AM PM
10 Port Elizabeth
Port Elizabeth
Known alternatively as ‘The Friendly City’ or simply as ‘P.E.’, Port Elizabeth lines up some of the most gorgeous sandy beaches along South Africa’s Eastern Cape. For a lazy day tucking your toes into the sand, the pick of the beaches include King’s, Hobie, Humewood and Pollock. Around the city, you’ll discover lovely manicured expanses, be it in St George’s Park, home to the cricket ground, or in Settler’s Park with its profusion of exotic plants and birds.
AM PM
11 Cape of Good Hope - Cruising
12 Atlantic Ocean - Cruising
13-14 Walvis Bay
Walvis Bay
Walvis Bay, actually means 'Whale Bay' as it is a popular place to catch sight of Humpback Whales from the shore. With wonderful beaches and incredible seafood, you won't want to leave.
AM PM
15 Atlantic Ocean - Cruising
16-17 Cape Town
Cape Town
Cape Town is the 'Mother City' a cosmopolitan, vibrant city with stunning beaches and welcoming climate.

Southampton to Stockholm with two overnights in St Petersburg was an ideal cruise and the whole experience lived up to previous cruises with Oceania. Could find no faults at all and thoroughly enjoyed every moment apart from being reminded that many Americans do not understand queueing.

Wonderful crew and delicious food - top class pastry chef. Cabins are rather small (this is our third time on this type of vessel). Shore excursions are expensive and not particularly good value for money - on the Beijing to Tokyo cruise. Would suggest booking independent tours outside Oceania.

Could not fault Iglu for arrangements and transfers to ship. Problems started when we arrived in cabin 3003. Requested outside twin cabin with sofa bed for 3 ladies 75 plus. Double bed and ordinary sofa. After much complaining cabin was eventually changed to twin with sofa bed. Problem was when bed opened it touched vanity unit and two people could not gain bathroom or exit without climbing over sofa bed. This was totally unacceptable for 3 ladies. I pointed out the health and safety aspect should there be an emergency. Got no help whatsoever except offer of one single cabin at over £1,000. We endured this for rest of cruise. Would not recommend Oceania. Ok the food is ok, but that is about all. Entertainment was fair and that's being kind. I know it's a small ship. Exactly the same as Azamara Journey and that was excellent.
