MS Queen Elizabeth has delighted the Mother City as she docked in Cape Town this week.
No stranger to Cape Town, the cruise liner operated by the Cunard line bears 2 068 passengers and 996 crew members.

Cape Town Alderman James Vos  has said that :

“The City is actively working to promote Cape Town as the top cruise destination on the continent. The cruise tourism industry has shown significant year-on-year growth. The City of Cape Town was working with the relevant tourism partners and the V&A Waterfront to promote the city as a destination of choice globally for cruise tourism. The dedicated cruise terminal, funded by the V&A Waterfront, has certainly put us in the running to become the cruise destination of choice.”

Since the cruise peak season runs from October to April. Cape Town expects 30 vessels to make 49 stop-overs in the city.  Indications are that Cape Town is poised to become a homeport for specialist cruises over time.
