Spending weeks at sea might not sound like the dream holiday to some, but when you're doing it in the comfort of a 6-star luxury cruise ship, cabin fever will never be something to worry about.

Crystal Cruises is a premier luxury travel company - whether it be ocean, river or air - and one of their wonders of the sea came for a visit to Cape Town during peak cruise season.

With only 980 passengers onboard, with an almost one-to-one ratio between staff and guest, Serenity offers a quieter escape with a personal touch.

Alongside your own personal butler, the cruise liner also offers classes on a variety of skills - from tech to learning to play the piano - and fine dining inspired by the various destinations where it makes port.

And you don't even have to leave the boat to experience the destinations - local entertainers from each port are invited to put on a show that highlights their unique culture and talent, and you can imagine what a South African experience must be like!
