Here are some reasons why South Africans choose to cruise locally with MSC Cruises:

  1. Convenience: Cruising locally can be more convenient for individuals who live near a port serviced by MSC Cruises. It eliminates the need for long flights or extensive travel to reach the embarkation point.

  2. Exploring Nearby Destinations: Local cruises may focus on specific regions, allowing passengers to explore nearby destinations without the need for international travel. This can be appealing for those who want a shorter trip or are interested in exploring their own country or neighboring areas.

  3. Cultural Familiarity: Cruising locally may provide a sense of cultural familiarity, as passengers are likely to encounter customs, languages, and cuisines that are more closely aligned with their own. This can be comforting for some travelers.

  4. Reduced Travel Costs: Cruising locally can potentially reduce travel costs associated with long-haul flights and international travel. This can make cruising more budget-friendly for individuals or families.

  5. Environmental Considerations: Some travelers may choose local cruises due to environmental concerns, as shorter voyages typically have a lower carbon footprint compared to longer international journeys.

  6. Time Constraints: Local cruises are often shorter in duration, which can be appealing for individuals with limited holiday time or those who prefer a quick getaway.

  7. Cruise Itinerary: MSC Cruises offers an appealing itinerary for local destinations, including Mozambique, Namibia, Cape Town, Durban and more.

So don't hesitate to be taken in by amazing experiences in places such as Cape Town in South Africa, Maputo in Mozambique, Port Louis in Mauritius, and Lüderitz in Namibia. Africa has never been so close. A Portuguese Island cruise is amongst the most popular and all you need to do is get to Durban, Port Elizabeth, Mossel Bay, and more where your holiday begins.
