“Traumschiff” in Cape Town

Germany’s best known cruise liner, the MS Deutschland, is visiting Cape Town for the next three days.   Cruise liner business is excellent for Cape Town, especially for the V & A Waterfront.

A popular TV series called “Traumschiff” has been filmed on the cruise liner for the past five years, and takes ZDF viewers to exotic locations.

The cheapest suite on the cruise liner costs $ 8 117 per person, including the return flight from Frankfurt, for the 15-day cruise from Cape Town to Walvis Bay, Luederitz, East London, Durban, Port Elizabeth and back to Cape Town, which finished yesterday.  Another started from Cape Town on the same day, with stops in Port Elizabeth, Durban, Richard’s Bay, Zanzibar, and Mombasa. 

The cruise liner is small by luxury liner standards, with 490 high-value clients on board.   The decor theme is 1920’s Art Deco.   It has two bars and three restaurants on board.
