Cape Town/South Africa
Overnight stay on board
Arrive a little early to enjoy the flair of Table Mountain’s metropolis on our pre-cruise programmes*, perhaps in combination with a safari. Thanks to an overnight stay on board, you will have plenty of time at the start of your cruise to explore this booming town. Another famous site also holds great appeal: the legendary Cape of Good Hope*. Alternative programme: Kayaking and Penguins* or an excursion to the wine-growing region of Stellenbosch*.
Cape Town, departure 23.00 hrs
Relaxation at sea
Port Elizabeth/South Africa, arrival 6.00 hrs
Over a stay of almost two days, the sprawling coastal city entices with fine sandy beaches and a township tour* to a somewhat different side of South Africa. Just outside the city, Africa’s fascinating wildlife awaits you: in Addo Elephant National Park*, Kariega Game Reserve* with giraffes, zebras and antelopes or Pumba Private Game Reserve*, where you will spend a overland excursion on the trail of the “big five” (Port Elizabeth Feb 2nd - 3rd).
Port Elizabeth, departure 16.00 hrs
Durban/South Africa, arrival 22.00 hrs
European, African and Indian cultures come together in the city to form an irresistible blend. Discover the city on a tour*. The programme for active holidaymakers and nature lovers: a canopy adventure* in the jungle or a game drive through Tala Game Reserve*.
Sue Greenberg scours South Africa for talented young people and exhibits their work in Durban’s Artisan Contemporary Gallery. A must for art lovers!
Durban, departure 18.00 hrs
Richard’s Bay/South Africa, arrival 5.00 hrs
Two days spent up-close with the spectacular Zulu Kingdom: South Africa’s largest port is the perfect starting point for impressive discovery tours. A visit to a Zulu village* will provide in-depth insights into the tribe’s proud tradition, while a boat trip through iSimangaliso Wetland Park* will (with a little luck) result in encounters with crocodiles and hippos. As spectacular as it is magical: the early morning in Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Nature Reserve*. Fantastic moments whose effects will continue during two relaxing days at sea.

A fresh approach to classical-crossover takes the most popular operatic melodies and makes them accessible to a wider public through a sound that is at once contemporary and true to the essentials of the great opera masters. Arias by Verdi, Puccini, Bizet, Händel, Mozart or Wagner are transformed through tango, swing, flamenco, klezmer- or Balkan sounds, producing a musical tightrope act that oscillates between tradition and innovation, and that ultimately fuses into a rich musical mosaic.
With just one tenor voice and four instruments, Don & Giovannis create a listening experience that is familiar and nostalgic, full of surprises, witty and totally engaging. The recordings testify to the ensemble's broad-mindedness, versatility and exceptional virtuosity. It’s how one might imagine a heavenly jam session of musical legends: Mozart swinging with Django Reinhardt, Bach improvising a tango with Astor Piazolla, Verdi jamming with Bob Marley! Recalling romantic neapolitan songs of Enrico Caruso’s time, swinging tunes à la Cole Porter, euphoric Sicilian tarantellas or passionate Argentinian milongas, Don & Giovannis, namely mandoline, accordion, clarinet and double bass accompanying the lyrical tenor voice, produce a musical experience that evokes sunsets by the sea, dreamy bars in the shadow of the Rio de la Plata, holidays on distant shores. Andreas Winkler and his musicians have developed a new language in music that won’t be boxed into standard categories. Exercising poetic license, in this project they also hark back to pre-digital times when instruments were played live and musicians didn’t worry about radio suitability or market compatibility. Don & Giovannis engage audiences with performances that captivate and truly connect them to the music. A new ensemble of inimitable sound is born: Don & Giovannis
