Although it’s been several years since the teams have delivered any cruise operations in South Africa, Intercruises recently completed a very successful turnaround for the MS Europa 2 in Cape Town. The team was also responsible for the management of the shore excursions, offering cruise guests the chance to enjoy a canapé reception onboard a catamaran, sip cocktails at sunsent on top of Signal Hill, take a trip up the famous Table Mountain, and even take a trip to the wine region.

The entire operation was overseen by Aggie Chylinska, Operations Executive South Africa, who was joined by Elena Garcia, Regional Manager India and Indian Ocean. Members of the Hapag-Lloyd exchange team had also flown in for a full week of inspections, which covered both activities and venues on the current program and additional ones for the future.

South Africa is fast becoming a more interesting destination for cruise lines and Intercruises is currently growing its presence in the region. Cape Town’s port is also currently undergoing renovations in order to cater to the future business growth.

Well done to the team involved for a great operation!
