Get to know the sights of Western Australia with a stay in sunny Perth before embarking on an epic sailing across the Indian Ocean, calling at an array of beautiful ports along the way.
Fly to Perth for two nights in the sunny capital of Western Australia, relaxing on its sandy beaches, strolling among its botanical gardens and sipping on wines and craft beers from the vineyards and breweries of nearby Margaret River. You’ll then embark Cruise & Maritime’s Astor in Freemantle for your 20-night sailing to Cape Town. Make the most of your time on board by spending your sea days relaxing in the spa, taking bracing walks on deck and enjoying the thrilling nightly entertainment, which includes lively late-night cabaret acts and big shows with all the bells and whistles.
After no time at all you’ll be pulling into port in Mauritius, sailing into the island’s capital of Port Louis. Spend your time ashore laying back on icing-sugar soft sands and swimming in cerulean waters, or indulging in the nation’s fiery cuisine. Next you’ll head to neighbouring Reunion, where a lunar-like landscape defined by volcanic activity flows awaits. Head inland to uncover the wildlife of its wild, rainforested interior or to the coast to dive among coral reefs.
The coast of Africa is calling: stroll Maputo’s jacaranda-lined streets and Durban’s seafront promenade and excellent aquarium before your final port of call, Mossel Bay. Revel in the beauty of the Garden Route, paying a visit to the town’s lighthouse or embarking on a walk along the hiking trails. You’ll disembark in Cape Town, full of memories of your thrilling adventure.

Set sail on the Astor, an elegant ship that blends the adventure of a cruise with the intimacy of a boutique hotel. With space for just 600 passengers, it offers a truly exclusive experience – where the crew know you by name and the bartenders are poised with your favourite drink. By day, take a dip in one of the pools or take on newly-made friends at volleyball, tennis and chess. By night, choose from a selection of irresistible dining options and sophisticated bars. Dawn to dusk, you’ll have sublime ocean views from the panoramic Sun Terrace and an inspiring activity programme to keep you busy between ports. Remember, while families are very welcome on board the Astor, there are no specific facilities for children.
