Left Walvis Bay at 4pm and now next stop and final destination Cape Town.
712 nautical miles – two nights and 1 day at sea.
This was going to be the highlight of my trip, coming into Cape Town.
What an experience this trip was – it was an experience of a lifetime – thanks to all that made it a memorable time.
We arrived in Cape Town on the most beautiful of days - Cape Town at its best - not a breath of wind and hot hot hot.
Hopefully to be repeated often.
Actually as I write this – I will be doing the northbound cruise on the MSC Melody from the 20th February 2012.
What I have learnt from the 2010 trip will most definitely come in handy for the coming trip.
