MSC Sinfonia cruise ship

The MSC Sinfonia has been cruising South Africa's waters since 2009, in the days when it was still Starlight Cruises doing the bookings and MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company) operating the ship. In her first couple of seasons she focussed on cruises from Durban to the tropical islands of Inhambane, Barra Lodge, Reunion and Mauritius; however in the 2012/2013 season the MSC Opera joined the Sinfonia in South Africa's waters, and the Sinfonia now concentrates on cruises from Cape Town to Walvis Bay, Mossel Bay, Luderitz and St Helena Island (in the middle of the Atlantic, nothing to do with St Helena on South Africa's west coast).
