12-Night Trip on Azamara Journey

12-Night South Africa Intensive Voyage

Roundtrip from Cape Town, South Africa

Your journey begins (and ends) in Cape Town, the "Mother City" of South Africa. From the Cape Winelands to the Cape of Good Hope, there’s so much to sip and see here.

Following a blissful day at sea, it’s a late-night stay in Port Elizabeth, where you can shop in lively marketplaces, visit the animal sanctuary of Addo Elephant National Park, and take a stroll through time on the Donkin Heritage Trail. From the town of East London, discover its many beautiful beaches, go to the Inkwenkwezi or Mpongo Private Game Reserve, or soak in the spectacular sights of Nahoon Estuary Nature Reserve.

After another relaxing day at sea, we arrive in the capital city of Mozambique, Maputo, where colonial-era architecture and the many charms of Old Town await. Take advantage of a late-night stay in Richards Bay to go on a safari at Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park-home to Africa’s "big five" animals. Then it’s on to the historic city of Durban. Meander along the famed Golden Mile, follow the Inanda Heritage Route, shop and dine on Florida Road, and take a tour of traditional Zulu homesteads. 

As we head back to Cape Town, you have two more days to really indulge at your boutique hotel at sea. Pamper yourself in Sanctum Spa, choose from specialty dining venues and fine wines, and take in some sensational performances.

The journey ends with a two-night stay in Cape Town, giving you plenty of time to explore this capital city set on two oceans. Learn about its past and apartheid history, enjoy countless outdoor adventures from mountain peaks to rugged coasts, and sip your way around world-renowned wineries.

Destination Immersion® Experiences

Life isn’t a 9 to 5 experience. Azamara voyages aren’t either.

When you’re in the midst of some of the most dazzling cities, renowned UNESCO World Heritage sites, and “I can’t believe we’re here!” hidden gems on Earth, the last thing you want to do is rush back to the ship for a 4:00 p.m. departure (or 5:00 p.m., if you’re lucky).

Well, here at Azamara®, we not only take you to awe-inspiring destinations, we also give you more time to fall in love with them. We call them Destination Immersion® experiences, and we’ve evolved the concept so you can Explore FurtherSM than before, both onboard and on shore.

Our unparalleled destinations allow you to cruise global and immerse yourself in fascinating cultures all over the globe, all while enjoying authentic service on your boutique hotel at sea.

Dining & Wine


At Azamara® we take you to remarkable destinations. We also give you more time to fall in love with them. It’s what we call Destination Immersion® experiences, and it's what happens when you can stay longer and experience more local life and culture in every port.

But Destination Immersion® experiences don't just happen on shore. They happen onboard, too. What does that mean for dining with Azamara®? We incorporate the flavors of a destination into our food and drink menus. What does that mean for you? An exclusive, local, and personalized culinary experience. It’s time to get a real taste for travel.


Plant-based diet? Now there’s a menu just for you – available at Discoveries, Prime C, and Aqualina.

Specialty Dining

At Aqualina, you’ll find some of Italy’s most celebrated dishes. But you’ll also find contemporary inventive cuisine. Start with lobster ravioli, followed by arugula and radicchio with prosciutto chips, and a Venetian seafood platter. You won’t be able to say no to our famous desserts: marsala custard, lemon soufflé, or tiramisu. Our chefs love to be inspired, so after an on shore visit to a local market, you can also expect a delectable dish so local, you’ll feel like you’re not onboard anymore.

Specialty dining is complimentary for suite guests. For others, there is a $30 per-person cover. Reservations are highly recommended.

Specialty Dining

Steaks cooked to perfection. Crab cakes with remoulade. Lobster bisque. Lamb, game hens and seafood. And last but certainly not least, our famous mini cinnamon-sugar donuts with dipping sauces for dessert. (Yes, they are as good as they sound.) But at Prime C, you’re in for more than an array of delectable dining. Expect a marvelous evening in a warm wood-paneled ambiance with stunning views and lush décor. And, if our chef has made a visit to a local market while we’re in port, you’ll also have an authentic local dish to look forward to, made just for you.

Specialty dining is complimentary for suite guests. For others, there is a $30 per-person cover. Reservations are highly recommended.

Fresh ingredients, careful preparation and a variety of menu choices. Azamara offers a choice of six distinctive dining options, including room service. Whether you’re a fan of haute cuisine or down-home cooking, expect the same delicious quality. Bon appétit! Buon appetito! ¡Buen provecho! No matter how you say it, you’re in for a real treat.

Fine Wines
You’ll be hard-pressed to find such a collection of limited production, small label and rare vintage wines anywhere on the high seas! And with vintages from France to California, and Argentina to South Africa, you’re sure to find a wine to suit your palate. And your journey. Our knowledgeable sommeliers can help you pick the perfect wines for your evening meal—and your voyage!—and be sure to join our Wine Corner gatherings in the Mosaic Café, perfect for discovering and enjoying new wines and benefiting from the thoughtful guidance of our sommelier.

Main Dining
Discover the world through dishes and flavors from the places we visit. Whether it’s our Destination Immersion dinner buffet or the Destination Immersion cuisine on our dinner menu, give your dining a little local flavor and enjoy on shore tastes onboard! Of course, you will also enjoy a wide variety of nightly selections such as filet mignon with black truffle sauce. With its elegant yet lively dining and renewed décor, it’s easy to see why this restaurant is a hands-down favorite, the culinary heart of our ships. Gather at Discoveries Bar for drinks before or after dinner.

Reservations are not accepted. Choose being seated at a table for two or as part of a larger group of fellow guests (which we highly recommend! It’s a great way to meet new people)


Casual Dining & Snacks
Casual “pool grill” by day. Then, fine tablecloths and flickering candles will set the mood for a sit-down al fresco dining experience by night. Taste your way around the world with exclusive personalized dishes using local flavors of the places we visit on our Destination Immersion® cuisine dinner menu served by our professional wait staff. And for a little touch of whimsy, a self-serve frozen yogurt station—Swirl & Top. With a variety of flavors and your choice of toppings, it’s the perfect way to cool off during the day or end your evening meal.

Casual Dining & Snacks
The best way to see where you are in the world is not by looking at your itinerary. It’s by checking out the menu at Windows Café! Our daily themed dinner often takes its inspiration from the region we’re visiting—Indian, Mexican, Spanish, Italian. We also create an extra live station made from local ingredients purchased in port: Greek salad made with local feta (Greece), pasta prepared with local mushrooms (Italy), fresh Mussels served with garlic bread (Netherlands). Take in the fresh breeze at an outdoor table and relax in the easy and casual atmosphere of the newly renovated Windows Café. Enjoy an intimate breakfast, lunch, or dinner for two or a lively meal for six with our flexible seating options. And speaking of choices, selections change daily. Choose from fresh sushi, stir-fry and pasta, salads, smoked lox and other cold fish, a carving station and of course, desserts.

Casual Dining & Snacks
Comfortable and stylish, Mosaic is the place where you’ll find your favorite coffee drinks, just the way you like. Try our Nespresso specialty coffee (for a fee). Slip into a comfortable seat and sip for a while. The perfect place to start (or end) your day, no matter where you are in the world. This just might become your favorite area on the ship.

Enrichment Program & Classes

Enrichment Programs & Classes

Your quest to learn continues with destination lecturers offering their expertise throughout each voyage with Azamara®. These leading destination experts will participate in a range of programs, classes, and lecture series throughout your voyage — all created with our incredible destinations in mind. They’ll also partake in Q&A sessions, and you may even see them around the ship or on shore excursion!

Discover our next destination before we dock, learn insider tips to make your time exploring each port of call memorable, and enjoy thought-provoking and entertaining programs hosted by Azamara’s onboard experts. On a handful of sailings, we’re pleased to also offer our World Wildlife Fund Speaker Series. During this special series, leading experts cover a range of topics that affect global wildlife, including wildlife and marine conservation, food waste, and sustainable agriculture practices.

On select sailings of 10 nights or more, we will welcome a Special Interest Lecturer aboard to provide unique expertise on a range of subjects. And on select sailings of 13 nights or more, an Art Instructor and Bridge Instructor will also be joining us.

For those marking religious holidays on board with us, appropriate clergy will be on hand to help you celebrate.

Onboard Shopping

You’ll find a tasteful collection of merchandise, beautiful jewelry and watches—and the promise of discovery and delight—in our signature shops. Window shop or select gifts for friends and family. Then, indulge yourself as you encounter the ideal memento of your truly extraordinary luxury cruise experience. Watch your daily news for specials and one-time offers that make shopping even more fun.

The Journey/The Quest/The Pursuit Shop. Pick up sundries, casual wear and swim fashions, sunglasses, accessories, music and shipboard keepsakes. This is a great place for small gifts to take back home.

Indulgences. Shop an exquisite selection of fine jewelry, watches, and other pieces from iconic jewelry-makers. With everything from fine cognac to designer eyewear, there’s something here to delight even the most discriminating tastes.

The Photo Shop. Stop by for camera supplies including batteries and digital memory cards. The shop displays photos of the previous day’s events, taken by the ship’s roving photographer, available for purchase.

Spa, Health & Fitness

If you’ve ever wished for a week or two to reboot, this is it. Treat yourself to health, beauty, and restorative treatments in our all new Sanctum Spa. With a focus on wellness and vigor, our relaxing spa offers you the chance to focus on you—something you don’t always have time to do at home. Enjoy an oceanfront massage, a quick manicure before hitting the town to explore, teeth whitening, barber services, or even a healing acupuncture treatment.

But beyond the Sanctum Spa, Azamara is also pleased to offer a full range of complimentary onboard fitness and nutrition classes, including one-on-one personal training for an additional cost.

You'll come away with a personalized diet plan based on current nutritional research and a Chinese medical diagnosis. Personal physical concerns and constitutional sensitivities will be addressed, and you’ll have a pathway to better health.
