Cruises are great value because almost everything is included in the one price. Your cruise fare will include accommodation, all meals, onboard facilities like swimming pools and fitness centres, plus entertainment. A few things can incur extra charges, like specialty restaurants, drinks, spa treatments and some activities. Specific inclusions may vary based on the cruise line, stateroom selection and package booked.


A valid passport is essential, and visas may be required depending on the cruise itinerary. For all international cruises, including regional cruises departing from South Africa to destinations such as to Mozambique, Namibia or Mauritius, you need a passport with at least two blank pages and a minimum of six months validity from when you arrive back.  

South African passport holders require a visa for a great number of countries globally. Although certain visa exemptions do apply, these may vary depending on current visas in place and the duration of your stay. 
 
For up-to-date and accurate information on which countries South African citizens require visas for, please check (insert travelnews link). Alternatively, contact the relevant embassy directly.


Once onboard, you'll receive a daily schedule of activities. Usually, the schedule for the following day will be left in your cabin by staff when they clean the room. Many modern cruise ships also have onboard digital screens that will display the day’s events or a mobile app you can download to keep track. Take a look at the individual Cruise Ship pages on our website or visit the cruise line’s site to see what you can expect.


Our Help Centre has a host of FAQs about travel requirements, booking your cruise and plenty more information you need before you set sail.
