Cape Town is perhaps the most exciting port to visit, where the Victoria and Alfred basins are used as far as possible for the medium sized and smaller cruise vessels. This used to be the harbor, but now houses the world famous V&A Waterfront complex and drops cruise passengers off right in the heart of the vibrant Fairest Cape. The large liners dock in the main harbor.
Durban Harbor has a well equipped cruise ship terminal for passengers, namely the N-Berth on the T-jetty. This is busiest during the summer months between November and May each year, with one cruise ship based there as a “resident.” There can be as many as 3 cruise ships in the port at any one time.
