Africa Cruises

Cruises to Africa

Surrounded by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, as well as the Mediterranean Sea, Africa has a ring of prime ports that help cruisers discover this exciting continent. Visit Africa's Gold Coast on the Atlantic Ocean, including Ghana and Senegal, and make a stop at the tropical Cape Verde islands. In southwest Africa, the plains and plateaus of Namibia are found between the Kalahari Desert, often visited on cruises that embark in South Africa's major ports of Cape Town and Durban. To the east, visitors can go snorkeling off the coast of Madagascar or sail up to the glorious Seychelles.

  • Most awful cruise I've ever taken
    sunaddict82
    We paid for the suite so we were happy with the room size and the balcony. The room needed massively updating however and was dirty upon embarkation. The restaurant il Covo was almost faultless - food, service, everything went well. Sadly ... Read more
  • Outstanding Cruise
    LAL Cruiser
    My partner and I, with friends, recently did a ten day cruise through South Africa; it was a wonderful experience and a great way to travel to this part of the world. We have travelled on Silversea many times in the past and find it to be a ... Read more
