Day 1 - Cape Town

Arrive: Sat 15 April 2023 / Depart: Sat 15 April 2023 at 18:00

When your MSC cruise brings you to Cape Town, it’s easy to see that, more than a scenic backdrop, Table Mountain is the solid core of this port city. It divides the city into distinct zones, with public gardens, wilderness, forests, hiking routes, vineyards and desirable residential areas trailing down its lower slopes. Standing on the tabletop, you can look north for a giddy view of the city centre, its docks lined with matchbox ships. When you are on holiday in South Africa, to appreciate Cape Town you need to spend time outdoors, as Capetonians do: they hike, picnic or sunbathe, often choose mountain bikes in preference to cars, and turn adventure activities into an obsession. Cape Town’s rich urban texture is immediately apparent in its diverse architecture: an indigenous Cape Dutch style, rooted in northern Europe, seen at its most diverse in the Constantia wine estates, which were influenced by French refugees in the seventeenth century; Muslim dissidents and slaves, freed in the nineteenth century, added their minarets to the skyline; and the English, who invaded and freed these slaves, introduced Georgian and Victorian buildings. Strand Street marks the edge of Cape Town’s original beachfront, and all urban development to its north stands on reclaimed land. To its south is the Upper City Centre, containing the remains of the city’s 350-year-old historic core, which has survived the ravages of modernization and apartheid-inspired urban clearance, and emerged with enough charm to make it South Africa’s most pleasing city centre. The entire area from Strand Street to the southern foot of the mountain is a collage of Georgian, Cape Dutch, Victorian and twentieth-century architecture, as well as being the place where Europe, Asia and Africa meet in markets, alleyways and mosques. Among the draw cards here are Parliament, the Company’s Gardens and many of Cape Town’s major museums.

    Great service once again from Michelle Ryan. Nothing is a bother. Brilliant manner well researched and knows her stuff. Thank you

    Mrs Macconnell / August 2022

    Laura you are the best

    this is the second time I have been with Scotland's Cruise Centre in 6 months and each time we booked it was a pleasure we were made to feel that we were important Laura she went out of her way to help she was perfect and one of the most polite people I have ever dealt with if she was employed with me I would give her a step up and a rise for Laura sells the cruise to you and as we were with her before she could bring up our details and made it so easy to book our holiday
    well done Laura you are Scotland's cruise center never let her go

    Mrs Bennie / August 2022
