Explore Africa

Cruise to ports such as Casablanca in Morocco and discover a spice-scented corner of the globe that delights the senses. It is a city of contrasts boasting a mesmerising history and heritage, bustling traffic dashes past a backdrop of wide boulevards, parks and French-colonial and Moroccan style architecture. Visit the world famous Notre Dame Cathedral and of course the Hassan II Mosque - the landmark of the city, it is the world's largest mosque possessing a souring 700ft high minaret. The city is also the gateway to the exotic Imperial Cities of Rabat and Marrakech.

Enjoy shore excursions such as a scenic drive to Marrakech where you can admire the spectacular city walls, stop for a bite at a local restaurant and then delve into the colourful souks as you pick up a souvenir from one of the hundreds of stalls packed into twisting lanes. Don't miss the world famous square, Jemaa el-Fna, with its incredible selection of belly dancers, snake charmers and acrobats.

Another port of call on a cruise to Africa is the city of Agadir in Morocco. This sundrenched city is the country's premier beach resort with a 9km stretch of glittering sands. Head to the Grand Souk to experience a traditional market brimming with shiny silver and hand-woven rugs, join a camel trek through Morocco's swirling sand dunes and explore Taroudant, an 11th century citadel set among olive groves and sweet smelling orange trees.

A cruise to Africa also gives you the opportunity to visit Walvis Bay in Namibia. The main attraction here is the wildlife. Its lagoon, sand dunes and salt flats are home to an amazing array of birds. Take advantage of the shore excursions available here such as a Dolphin and Seal cruise where you may even encounter an inquisitive seal swimming up to the boat for something to eat and schools of dolphins racing alongside your boat. Adventure seekers will enjoy a 4x4 Namibian desert safari where you can marvel at the fantastic view from Dune 7, the highest sand dune in the area.

Cruise into the remote and peaceful Cape Verde Islands and potter around the intriguing markets in the main town of St Vincent and admire the rugged, lunar landscape. Take a gentle stroll through the historical and charismatic streets of Mindelo, admire the quaint architecture, visit the cultural centre and be entertained by some traditional local music as you enjoy a drink or two at the Porto Grande Hotel.
