2023/24 Cruise season kicks off

4 Dec 2023 | Wesgro

The 2023/24 Cruise Season in Cape Town and the Western Cape is officially underway, with the first ship of the season – the Vasco Da Gama – having arrived on 2 November 2023.

The Mother City was the ship’s last stop, following a 24-day itinerary which started in Lisbon, Portugal. The ship was in port for two days before departing on a 15-day trip from Cape Town to Port Louis, docking along the South African coastline.

The second ship of the season – the Swan Hellenic Diana – an expedition ship carrying almost 200 passengers and over 140 crew members docked in the Port of Cape Town on 21 November 2023. The arrival marks the first time the ship has ever docked in Cape Town, following her inaugural 8-day cruise along the Southern African coastline – starting in Maputo and docking at each of South Africa’s four ports en-route to the Mother City. The ship was docked for one day doing a turnaround call (refuelling and collecting new passengers), before embarking on her itinerary back towards Maputo.

The Vasco Da Gama and the SH Diana are two of the eight new ships expected to dock in the Port of Cape Town over the 2023/24 season.
