Cruises from Cape Town to Australia & Southampton
With the majestic and unique Table Mountain as a backdrop, Cape Town harbour is one of the most unforgettable departure ports in the world. Unfortunately, due to the geographic location of Cape Town, it takes a long time to cruise there and back and consequently there are not too many cruises from Cape Town to choose from. If you live in Australia or New Zealand you should really try taking an amazing cruise ship in Cape Town to Australia or Southampton.
