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.
