Set sail for one of the world’s most cosmopolitan capital cities on board Cruise & Maritime’s stylish Astor.
Begin your voyage in the Mother City where you’ll embark Astor in Cape Town’s cruise terminal. Take time to familiarise yourself with the ship’s premium facilities: enjoy a luxurious treatment in the pampering Oasis wellness centre, sip a cocktail on the sun deck as the sun goes down or join friends in the Captains Club for an evening to remember. Your first port of call is Walvis Bay on Namibia’s dramatic Atlantic coast; take a spin around Pelican Point to view dolphins, whales and seals or head inland to explore the outer reaches of the Namib Desert. Next you’ll call at a duet of islands in Cape Verde: Praia Santiago, the capital, and Mindelo, famous for its Brazilian influences. Explore the French colonial legacy of Morocco next in Casablanca, and don’t miss the chance to visit the towering Hassan II Mosque. There’s time to sample Portuguese custard tarts in Lisbon and sweet Port wine in Porto, before you disembark in London Tilbury for the next part of your adventure.
You’ll be transferred to a London hotel for two nights where you’ll have plenty of time to take in the city’s most iconic sights. Watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, take in the views from the London Eye and shop for souvenirs in Harrods, the world’s most iconic department store.

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.

may be a small ship, but certainly knows how to put on a big show. Each night the
talented entertainment team host spectacular revues and late-night cabarets in
the Astor Lounge. If a quiet night is in order, there are plenty of tranquil
spots for a card game – accompanied by relaxing tunes from our resident
The creative chefs will have you eating like a king on board the Astor. Sample buffet-style cuisine on the Pool Deck, relish a laid-back lunch in the Übersee Club, or indulge in fine food and wine in the elegant Waldorf Restaurant. The intimate 20-seat Toscana Restaurant and speciality dining rooms are tailor-made for a romantic dinner for two.
The beauty of Astor’s intimate nature is that there are both lively lounges and quiet spots to suit your wishes. Sip cool drinks beside the pool, sundowners on the Sun Terrace or cocktails in the Captain’s Club. The bartenders will happily introduce you to a new flavour or mix you an old favourite.
Each day offers a fresh programme of inspiring activities. The fitness team can lead you in morning yoga through to afternoon jogging. Or you could indulge in top-to-toe treats at the Oasis beauty and wellness centre. Then there are invited speakers to listen to and artists to learn from. Whichever deck you’re on, you’ll find a myriad of things to see and do.
