    The highlights of this cruise

    CAPE TOWN is an extremely varied experience. Take plenty of time to explore from the outset, for example by walking up one of the 300 trails to the Table Mountain plateau. Alternatively, a gondola will carry you up to enjoy this breathtaking view. At the foot of the mountain, visitors are particularly attracted to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. The modern marina, surrounded by bars, restaurants, boutiques, cinemas and the Two Oceans Aquarium, is the ideal place to spend a day. Take the ferry over to Robben Island* in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela. Former prisoners lead tours through the prison where the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize was incarcerated for 18 years. The Cape region is known both for its chequered history and its outstanding wines. Pleasure meets history in Stellenbosch*: founded in 1679, its historic buildings revolve around exquisite wines. Get closer to the big five around PORT ELIZABETH. Ride open jeeps into the scrubland of the wildlife reserves to capture moments with lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalo and leopards: perhaps you’ll see lions dozing in Kariega Private Game Reserve*, spot zebras in Sibuya Game Reserve* or watch a herd of elephants at a watering hole in Addo Elephant National Park*. To allow you to follow the animal kingdom late into the evening, the EUROPA will stay in the harbour overnight. You will also spend two days in multicultural DURBAN. The “Golden Mile”, a 6 km (3.7 mi.) long sandy beach, stretches alongside the city. Go for a walk and watch the surfers or have your own adventure: float above the jungle leaves on a canopy tour*.

    Your route also covers another island beauty: REUNION is France’s idyllic outpost. Here, volcanoes meet a fascinating underwater world. Its natural beauty is particularly impressive from the air. Our tip: take a helicopter tour* over the lunar landscapes of Piton de la Fournaise. Nature lovers may prefer to hike* through the green Mafate valley basin. Snorkellers will find a colourful Garden of Eden along the edge of the reef off the black and white sandy beaches. With all these memories stored, your cruise will end the next morning on MAURITIUS.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
