Cruise on board Costa Fascinosa
The glorious Costa Fascinosa offers all the elegance and style of a traditional cruise ship, with some brilliant innovations. Indulge at the Samsara Spa, watch feature films with a twist in the 4D Cinema and enjoy incredible entertainment at the three level theatre.
What you’ll see
The Duomo di Milano, La Sagrada Familia, Christ the Redeemer, Iguazu Falls and the Recoleta Cemetery– these are just a handful of the amazing sights you’ll get to experience during this jam-packed holiday.
Why we love it
Italy and Brazil are miles apart - both when it comes to geography and culture! This is a bucket list holiday that ticks off a handful of sights, each more diverse than the last, all connected with a transatlantic cruise on board the stylish Costa Fascinosa. Not only will you cruise through the Mediterranean and Brazil, you’ll also enjoy fully escorted tours of both the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil and the incredible Iguazu Falls – the widest waterfall in the world.
The cool days of autumn in the Mediterranean make for the perfect sightseeing weather (you’ll also avoid the crowds of high summer), while in Brazil you’ll enjoy the balmy days of spring, when temperatures sit comfortably around 26°.
Hotel Spotlight – Hotel Caesius Thermae and Spa
With mountains that rise majestically around its edges and colourful towns and villages wedged among sprawling vineyards and olive groves, Lake Garda is a compelling destination. Located just across the road from the lake on the edge of the picturesque village of Cisano, the hotel is just a 30 minute walk from Bardolino, one of Lake Garda’s most popular towns, or you could take advantage of the free minibus service provided by the hotel.
The hotel boasts no less than five outdoor pools, two indoor pools, a tranquil spa, gorgeous gardens and free WiFi throughout the hotel. You can experience this hotel with Imagine Cruising during our Timeless Venice Simplon-Orient-Express Discovery & Eastern Mediterranean Cruise, click the discover more button to find out more.
We proud ourselves on being an award-winning business and are always striving to deliver the best possible service to our fantastic customers. Most recently we came second place in the category of “Independent Agency” at the MSC international and local awards.
Imagine Cruising Events
Earlier this month Imagine Cruising guests enjoyed an exclusive evening with Martin Brundle in Shanghai. Held at the Sun Chateau on the Bund, guests were treated to a delicious three-course meal created by executive chef Danny Wong at this luxury venue, boasting views over the Huangpuon and Pearl Tower.
Martin dined with the guests and gave his insights into the upcoming race alongside anecdotes from his time behind the wheel and his famous pit lane commentary. Guests said it was the perfect precursor to the Shanghai Grand Prix race itself and a fantastic night was had by all.
We are looking forward to seeing Martin again throughout the year at more Formula 1 events.

Sorrento, Italy. A quaint little town along the Amalfi Coast with breath taking views, great pasta and delicious Limoncello.
Charity is at the heart of everything we do here at Imagine. We have been proud sponsors of RAM (Rescue Among Many) for the past three years, a charity committed to supporting children and the elderly in the rural areas of the Western Cape.
Through this partnership we’ve forged a close relationship in particular with Talana primary school. As part of this we’ve taken the children to watch a movie, painted their playground and classroom and held a Christmas party with gifts and even a surprise visit from Santa himself!! We look forward to continuing this relationship into the future and updating you in future newsletters about upcoming charity activities and fundraising.
