New Cruise Ship Set for Big Impact in Lagos

New Cruise Ship Set for Big Impact in Lagos

By Demola Ojo

Sitting pretty on the banks of the Lagos Lagoon in Victoria Island is a huge, brand new cruise ship, Eugene 1. Constructed in 2017 and brought to Nigeria after a 45-day voyage from Turkey as the first in the stable of Hi-Impact Cruise, the $700,000 watercraft is a beauty to behold, inside and out. 

Hi-Impact Cruise is another arm of Solutions Media, a company which started business in 2011 and has distinguished itself over the years in the entertainment and tourism sector. 

Following the success of Hi-Impact Planet, an amusement park on the outskirts of Lagos, Hi-Impact Cruise is another opportunity for Solutions Media to prove its mettle in a venture that hardly anyone has dared to undertake in these climes. 

Set for launch in the coming weeks, Hi-Impact Cruise will do four-hour voyages along Lagos waters. Boasting a capacity of up to 1000 depending on the sitting arrangement, the three-tiered ship with a penthouse, is perfect for private parties, including weddings, which is a big industry in Nigeria’s commercial and entertainment capital.  

Speaking recently during a tour of the ship’s facilities at the newly-constructed lounge where passengers mingle before boarding, chairman of Solutions Media, Prince Adeyanju Lipede, said the company is offering Nigerian fun lovers the opportunity to enjoy in Lagos what they travel outside the country for, thus helping to save foreign exchange.

He did a brief recount of his company’s exploits before intimating those gathered on what Eugene 1 has to offer. “We have been in entertainment. We have done it in Nigeria and we have done it outside Nigeria. Now we have come back.

“In 2013, we singlehandedly handled The Experience in terms of audio and lights. We still have the best equipment in that area. Even in visuals, the company has the most expensive set of equipment, both light and video cameras, including a studio which is for animation.”

He also talked about Hi-Impact for Creative Kids and the amusement park. “We impactfully influence any sector of the economy that we find ourselves in which is entertainment and tourism.

“We have a company registered in Dubai. We had the biggest and the most successful African entertainment show called Dance Afrique which other people are now trying to emulate and follow.

“We then went to London and repeated that twice at the SSE Arena. We were the first Africans to be allowed to use the place and we did it successfully.” 

The international experience has come in handy he said. 

Prince Lipede wants to make sure Nigerians don’t have to travel for a cruise experience. “We are making sure that all the facilities that would make you comfortable are inside here.

“There will be lots of entertainment; there will be good food, nice ambience, fully air-conditioned inside. It has enough banquet sitting capacity. It is between 500 to 700 hundred persons depending on the sitting arrangement.  

“If we are doing cinema sitting, it will take up to 1100. It is going to cruise only four hours every weekend or any time that we have a cruise   and we move around to see Lagos.” 

Bringing Eugene 1 to Nigeria is in line with the federal and state governments’ vision to enhancing tourism as a means of generating revenue, he continued. “Basically, we’re also beautifying Lagos.” 

Despite a few hitches, Prince Lipede has been encouraged by the Nigerian authorities, even though the venture and how it should be regulated is new to one or two agencies.

“I must put it on record that NIWA has been very good. NIMASA too has been very good even though we’ve had to help them because there was no template for them to follow. LASWA also has been supportive of recent.”

 But Lipede reveals that there are still stumbling blocks to be surmounted for Eugene 1 to commence business.  

“When the government talks about tourism, there must be some kind of rebate or incentives, especially because the government sees tourism as a means of diversifying the economy. But the support is not coming.”

He is especially discouraged by the attitude of the Nigerian Customs who seem to be the agency in the way of full operation. 

“We pay duty. Is this the same yacht as Otedola’s own? Why tell us to pay the same duty or surcharge? That is ridiculous. It’s high time we call our people to order so they don’t discourage people doing business. 

“This is not a hired boat. This is a Nigerian boat owned by a Nigerian without any foreign investment.  Do you know the number of Nigerians that will work there? In our company today, we have more than 200 graduates,” he revealed.

By and large, Lipede sees a bright future for his company’s new venture and expects loads of patronage. “A lot of the expatriates in Lagos have this where they come from. Now they will get to experience something just as good in Lagos.”

The patronage won’t be limited to within Nigeria, he believes. “When we were getting this boat, we wanted to make sure it would be something people outside of Nigeria will come to the country to experience.”

All that’s left now is for final details to be sorted, Hi-Impact Cruise to officially open and for Eugene 1 to cast off.

Remember Me

Royal Caribbean International Nigeria

Set Sail with Royal Caribbean Cruise line !!!!


Cruises are fast becoming the number one choice of vacationing at the moment. Don’t let this sweeping trend pass you by without you catching you own piece of the fun.  As cruising represents the 21 st century mode of experiencing utter fun and luxury we have decided to answer some questions that people might we wondering about cruises.

Here are a few questions that people ask about cruising.

What is  a cruise?

A cruise is like a large floating holiday resort. On board you can enjoy the luxury and comfort of a 5 star hotel and you can choose from different activities, ship is equipped with several exquisite dining restaurants, bars, casinos, swimming pools, Jacuzzi ,spa, gym, theater, cinema etc. You can take a cruise just about everywhere in the world. Royal Caribbean covers 272 incredible destinations in 77 countries and with our massive fleet boasting of 26 ships there is no where in the world that we do not cover. The most popular cruise destinations are the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. In recent years, more and more cruise passengers find their way to destinations such as Alaska, Northern Europe,the Middle East and Asia.

Luxury, adventure and excitement !!!

Why cruise ? Cruises are fast replacing land holiday packages  like storm. You experience high quality fun and excitement with limited stress and hassles of airport shenanigans , transit stops  etc . On a cruise you can visit more than 2 countries at a go without having to pack and unpack your bags each time.  With each stop in a different country there is ample time to disembark the ship to look around, visit tour sites and if you  are like me shop, shop and more shopping!!! Now that’s what I call great value for money!!!

Is cruising expensive? Contrary to the popular believe that cruises are expensive , cruises are affordable and amount to great value for money. Look at it way; when people travel to different destinations, they are expected to pay for accommodation, feeding, activities and entertainment this translates into more money leaving your pocket. When you pay for a cruise , everything is inclusive except you want a special service or item out of the norm.


Can I stay in touch when at sea?   When at sea you can reach you to friends and family back home as  there is wifi internet access is available on the cruise ships. This way you can send mails , post pictures and get in touch via social media


Will someone get seasick and how can this be prevented?   When on board a ship you feel very little or no movement at all when the ship is in motion. What happens is you go about your activities and a couple of hours later you are docked at a new port of call!! There is always a clinic on board the ship open 24/7 to assist and treat passengers on the ship. So seasickness at sea isn’t something to worry about, just let you hair down and rest.

Are all cruise ships alike? No. No  ship is the same in the Royal Caribbean fleet. This is because the  activities, dining options, west end- style entertainment onboard the different ships vary ensuring that each  holiday and experience onboard is memorable and unique from the last.

Yaayyyy Bumper cars have arrived at sea

What kind of accommodation do we have on a cruise ship? Every stateroom onboard a cruise is designed to inspire and relax . It is a calm oasis where you can get away for noise and distractions. When it comes to accommodations there are so many categories to choose from,  from the cosy interior stateroom and beautiful balcony stateroom to luxurious suites. All stateroom have an interactive feature which allows you to order room service , reserve show times, shore excursions, movie and book speciality dining.


What does cruising have to offer Nigerians ?

For the average Nigeria like me who is very money conscious I say cruising has made vacationing more affordable, the all inclusive nature of a cruise ( meals, accommodation, activities and entertainment) making it cost tempting/ value proposition. Cruising offers one of the highest motivation  to any audience ( children, teenagers, adults) , when it comes to cruising nobody is left out. Nigerians who are generally family oriented people can take a cruise vacation  together without worrying about how to keep the brood entertained and occupied. There are thrilling activities and games onboard for the ultimate adrenaline  junkie to the tranquil oasis for meditating and relaxing . There is something on board for everyone. No two days are ever the same, with endless options to indulge, excite or just relax. So next time you looking for to go on vacation; think luxury , entertainment, adventure & thrill and most of all great value for money!!

10 Major Cruise Ports in Africa

The African continent is a melting pot of cultures, traditions, and ethnicities. Here, you can see nature in its best and most pristine form. From the majestic African elephants to penguins and lemurs, Africa offers one of the best wildlife excursions. It also boasts natural white sand beaches, calming resorts, and beautiful scenery. 

Africa is enclosed by the Atlantic and Indian oceans and the Mediterranean Sea. Hence, many cruise ships call on numerous ports allowing travelers to explore the continent. One can go to the African Gold coast or the tropical Verde Islands. Southwestern Africa is known for the plains and plateaus in Namibia, the Kalahari desert, the eastern tropical forests, historic plantations, and much more.

Mentioned below are 10 major Cruise ports in Africa.

1. Port of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Dar es Salaam is the most visited tourist spot in Tanzania. It has a strong economy based on tourism and shipping. It is the biggest and richest city in Tanzania, boasting enormous cultural diversity. It was once a tiny fishing village, established by the Sultan of Zanzibar in the 19th century; however, today, it is a developed city with modern amenities and a leading center of Fashion, Arts, Music, and films in Africa.

Dar es Salaam is a busy commercial and trade hub. It is also the second busiest port in East Africa, handling most African cargo and over a million cruise passengers. Cruise ships dock in different berths as the port does not yet have a dedicated cruise terminal. However, talks are ongoing for constructing one by the end of this decade.

Port of Dar es Salaam

Tourists can experience the untainted indigenous African culture in Dar es Salaam. The city has an open-air museum village depicting the traditional way of living. It has 16 huts, and tourists can try their hand at weaving, making pottery, and carving. One can visit Mbudya island, observe the fishing community, relax on the beaches, or watch dolphins in the Marine Reserve.

  Nature lovers must visit the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, famous for its closed-canopy forests with over 400 fauna and 2500 plant species. It is ideal for camping and trekking.

2. Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Port Elizabeth is an industrial city between Cape Town and Durban within Nelson Mandela Bay. It is the third busiest port in Africa and the fifth largest city in South Africa. About 57 cruise itineraries featured the city as a port of call in 2019. Port Elizabeth lacks a proper cruise terminal, and ships dock at a commercial quay in the small harbor. 

It is home to the Alexandria Dune fields, the largest in the southern hemisphere. It is also believed that Port Elizabeth was not named after the British Queen but the wife of Rufane Donkin, the Governor of Cape Colony, in 1820.

Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth has witnessed considerable modernization; however, the historic streets and victorian buildings are reminiscent of its colonial past. It has many plantations and art museums as well. One such is the Red Location Museum of People’s Struggle. There are several historical attractions like the Donkin Heritage Trail. The most famous attraction is Addo Elephant Park.

Holidaymakers can also enjoy the beaches of Humewood and Summerstrand. Many bars and local restaurants sell authentic food at affordable rates.

3. Port of Casablanca, Morocco

Casablanca is the most important port in Morocco. It is also a regional trade center and a popular African cruise destination. Facing the vast Atlantic Ocean, the port is an open roadstead, capable of accommodating one cruise ship at a time. Rabat, the capital city, is just 90 kilometers east of Casablanca.

After disembarking, a shuttle bus takes the passengers to the exit gate. The port is close to the Central Market, abundant in local foods and handmade goods. People can visit Isesco Park, a visual treat with blooming flowers and crystal clear ponds. Église Notre-Dame de Lourdes is a 1954 Catholic church with marvelous frescos and tainted glass windows.

Port of Casablanca

An excursion to Rabat would enable you to see the Hasan Mosque built in 1986, the Mausoleum of Mohammed V, and the Kasbah of the Oudayas. Old Medina takes you back in time. The souk runs along the city’s ancient fortifications and hosts 18th-century buildings and residential houses.

4. Tolanaro Port, Madagascar

Port of Tolanaro, earlier known as Fort Dauphin, is located on the southeastern coastline of Madagascar, facing the Indian Ocean. It is the Tolanaro district’s and Anosy region’s capital, housing around 50,000 people. It is the oldest town in the country and a vital trade and commerce route since the 15th century, when the first French settlement was set up.

Large cruise ships anchor away from the island. Passengers are transferred ashore by tender boats. Steep and lush green mountains enclose the town, and it experiences drier weather. Tourists love its beaches and turquoise waters.

Tolanaro Port

The Nahampoana Reserve is known for Lemurs, gardens, and beautiful mountains. The Lokaro beach is best for camping and relaxing. Parc National d’Andohahela offers mountaineering and trekking excursions on its beaten paths amidst the rainforests.

5. Port of Dakar, Senegal

Dakar is the principal seaport of Senegal, a country in West Africa. Senegal was once a French Overseas territory that attained independence in 1960. The port is located on the Cape Verde Peninsula, the westernmost point of the African continent.

Cruise ships dock at the Mole 1 terminal at Dakar cruise port. The city center is approximately a kilometer from the port. One can get taxis or get onto a bus to explore the city. However, crime rates are high in Senegal, and pick-pockets are common. So, booking a cab with a reliable and reputed agency is advised beforehand.

Port of Dakar

In 2020, DP World entered into agreements with the country’s government to construct a new port facility 50 kilometers from the existing port. The 600-hectare new port at Ndayane would be used as a commercial port and a cruise terminal, strengthening the country’s maritime infrastructure.

6. Port of Mombasa, Kenya

The 11 million USD Cruise terminal at Mombasa was completed in June 2021 but has witnessed low traffic due to covid restrictions. It is intended to make the coastal city an attractive cruise destination and boost the tourism industry, contributing around 4.5 percent to the Kenyan economy.

Situated at berth 1 of Mombasa port, the cruise facility has duty-free shops, conference halls, and seating areas for 2000 people. It is envisaged that with this terminal, Kenya could compete with South African cruise terminals, Mauritius, Cape Verde, and Seychelles.

Port of Mombasa

A recent survey conducted by Tourism and Transport Consult International regarding Kenya’s cruise potential revealed that the nation could easily attract over 14,500 tourists annually.

Also, Kenya is the third most popular cruise destination in Sub-Saharan Africa, after South Africa and Nigeria. Thanks to its beautiful coastline, numerous exotic islands, clean beaches, indigenous communities living in harmony with nature, and wildlife reserves on the East African Indian Ocean coastline, it sees thousands of tourists.

7. High-Impact Cruise Boarding Terminal, Nigeria

The boarding terminal is a joint venture between Solution Media and Infotech Limited, owners of Nigeria’s biggest amusement park, Hi-Impact Planet, and the country’s first HD TV station.

The luxury cruise line is the latest edition for the family. It is a result of careful market research and planning, catering to the nation’s entertainment industry, especially the tourism sector of Africa. The cruise terminal is a modern facility welcoming cruises and yachts. One can organize many formal and informal events onboard by booking impact cruises.

High-Impact Cruise Boarding Terminal

The Hi-Impact Cruise terminal has a luxurious cruise lounge and a classy waterfront venue at the boarding terminal for accommodating guests. The HIC Lounge is ideal for weddings, parties, anniversaries, and corporate events.

The cruise line guarantees all its guests a fantastic nightlife and party experience. One can enjoy exotic cocktails, great food, and fine musical performances every weekend. Sports lovers can watch exciting games in HD. The cruise ship has something for everyone. Regular cruises arrive every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 

8. Port Said, Egypt

Port Said is one of the busiest container ports in the world; however, its cruise terminal is also renowned for its advanced features and reliable services. Most cruises commence with overnight hotel stays in Cairo for two to three days. The cruise package includes the domestic flight ticket to Aswan for embarking on the Nile o Lake Nasser Cruises ship. The Nile part from Aswan to Luxor is followed by the flight to Abu Simel for embarking on the Lake Nasser ship.

Port Said

The cruise terminal serves Cairo, the capital city and one of Africa’s biggest and most developed cities and the Middle East. One of the world’s most densely populated cities lying on the Nile, it is famous for its rich history, fabulous medieval Islamic architecture, ancient pyramids, bazaars, old town, and the Egyptian Museum housing countless artifacts and mummies.

9. Port of Maputo, Mozambique

The Maputo Cruise Port lies along the southeastern coast of Africa facing the Indian Ocean. It is the largest city and the capital of Mozambique, known for colonial architecture and white sand beaches. Maputo attained independence in 1976 and was called Lourenco Marques, named after a Portuguese sailor who contributed to developing trade and fortifications in the city.

Maputo is an important commercial center; tourists can explore a lot, despite its hot and dry weather. The Feira de Artesanato and Flôres e Gastronomia de Maputo are known for local handicrafts and delicious food.  The Church of San Antonio de la Polana was built in 1962. It is a fine example of modern architecture, designed like an upside-down flower with stained glass windows. The fortress of Maputo contains the remains of the last emperor of the Gaza Empire, Ngungunhane. Animal lovers must visit the Maputo Elephant Reserve located on Maputo Bay. 

Port of Maputo

Cruise ships anchor at different positions in the harbor, depending on their size. Passengers are transported onshore through tender boats.

10. Port of Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town boasts one of the most stunning harbors in the world. It spans 400 square kilometers in Table Bay and hosts significant cruise lines, including MSC, NCL-Norwegian Line, Crystal Silversea, etc. The cruise port is 220 kilometers from Cape Agulhas, strategically located amidst the Dutch East Indies and Europe. Its advantageous position made it the most influential African port in the 17th century.

It is one of the world’s most attractive cruise ports of call. Smaller ships dock in the Victoria and Alfred Basins, while larger cruise vessels are received at the Duncan dock, which contains many multipurpose terminals, a repair quay, and a dry dock.

Port of Cape Town

Work for constructing a new cruise terminal commenced in July 2015. Created by Transnet National Ports Authority, it cost 15 million US dollars. Major attractions and landmarks include Table Mountain, Robben Island, Boulders Beach, Cape Whale Coast, etc.

Africa Cruises

Africa is the perfect cruise destination for a rugged safari adventure or a discovery of native cultures from the Middle East to Madagascar. Jump in a Jeep and see the lions, giraffes, and other wildlife of the Serengeti firsthand. Zip line through the canopies of a rainforest in South Africa. Learn about the history and change of Angola’s people and culture, or have a village culture experience in Senegal.

Whether you choose to spend your time immersing yourself in the native cultures, or kicking back on a beach on the Kenyan coast, Africa will amaze and astound you!

Things to Do on a Cruise to Africa

Africa is a vast continent with amazing landscapes and is still a largely untouched landscape where you can travel from the desert, to the mountains, and to the plains of the Serengeti. Experience Africa’s rich cultural traditions that are tied to the land and those who live there. Highlighted below are some of our most recommended experiences for cruising to Africa:

Africa Egyptian camel pyramids of Giza Egypt

Africa Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

  • Double the size of Niagara Falls , Victoria Falls is an incredibly breathtaking spot. You can discover this spot and the rainforest that surrounds it or even get a bird’s eye view on a helicopter ride above the falls.  

Africa beautiful CapeTown beaches South Africa

  • Tour the vineyards that lie west of Capetown in towns like Stellenbosch and Franschhoek where you’ll find never ending vineyards. Don’t leave without trying the award winning wines produced in this region.

Flavors as Diverse as its Landscapes

Flavors as Diverse as its Landscapes

Dutch, French, Indian and Malaysian meld to create the Afrikaans-style of cooking. Braai or shisa nyama, which means ‘burn the meat,’ is like western BBQ. For a meaty snack, try Biltong. Served in a brown bag, these spiced strips are akin to jerky. Wondering about Slap Chips? Try these vinegar-doused fries alone or in a Gatsby sandwich. Seafood lovers can rejoice too at Mossel Bay, whose name means bay of mussels. Need a ‘dop’ or drink? A favorite is Amarula, a cream liqueur made from the fruit of the Marula tree. Elephants get drunk eating its fermented fruit.

  • Global Water, Sanitation and Hygiene | Healthy Water
  • Avoid Contaminated Water During Travel

You can also visit the Department of State Country Information Pages for additional information about food and water safety.

Prevent bug bites

Bugs (like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas) can spread a number of diseases in Nigeria. Many of these diseases cannot be prevented with a vaccine or medicine. You can reduce your risk by taking steps to prevent bug bites.

What can I do to prevent bug bites?

  • Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats.
  • Use an appropriate insect repellent (see below).
  • Use permethrin-treated clothing and gear (such as boots, pants, socks, and tents). Do not use permethrin directly on skin.
  • Stay and sleep in air-conditioned or screened rooms.
  • Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors.

What type of insect repellent should I use?

  • FOR PROTECTION AGAINST TICKS AND MOSQUITOES: Use a repellent that contains 20% or more DEET for protection that lasts up to several hours.
  • Picaridin (also known as KBR 3023, Bayrepel, and icaridin)
  • Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or para-menthane-diol (PMD)
  • 2-undecanone
  • Always use insect repellent as directed.

What should I do if I am bitten by bugs?

  • Avoid scratching bug bites, and apply hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion to reduce the itching.
  • Check your entire body for ticks after outdoor activity. Be sure to remove ticks properly.

What can I do to avoid bed bugs?

Although bed bugs do not carry disease, they are an annoyance. See our information page about avoiding bug bites for some easy tips to avoid them. For more information on bed bugs, see Bed Bugs .

For more detailed information on avoiding bug bites, see Avoid Bug Bites .

Stay safe outdoors

If your travel plans in Nigeria include outdoor activities, take these steps to stay safe and healthy during your trip.

  • Stay alert to changing weather conditions and adjust your plans if conditions become unsafe.
  • Prepare for activities by wearing the right clothes and packing protective items, such as bug spray, sunscreen, and a basic first aid kit.
  • Consider learning basic first aid and CPR before travel. Bring a travel health kit with items appropriate for your activities.
  • If you are outside for many hours in heat, eat salty snacks and drink water to stay hydrated and replace salt lost through sweating.
  • Protect yourself from UV radiation : use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, wear protective clothing, and seek shade during the hottest time of day (10 a.m.–4 p.m.).
  • Be especially careful during summer months and at high elevation. Because sunlight reflects off snow, sand, and water, sun exposure may be increased during activities like skiing, swimming, and sailing.
  • Very cold temperatures can be dangerous. Dress in layers and cover heads, hands, and feet properly if you are visiting a cold location.

Stay safe around water

  • Swim only in designated swimming areas. Obey lifeguards and warning flags on beaches.
  • Practice safe boating—follow all boating safety laws, do not drink alcohol if driving a boat, and always wear a life jacket.
  • Do not dive into shallow water.
  • Do not swim in freshwater in developing areas or where sanitation is poor.
  • Avoid swallowing water when swimming. Untreated water can carry germs that make you sick.
  • To prevent infections, wear shoes on beaches where there may be animal waste.

Schistosomiasis and leptospirosis, infections that can be spread in fresh water, are found in Nigeria. Avoid swimming in fresh, unchlorinated water, such as lakes, ponds, or rivers.

Keep away from animals

Most animals avoid people, but they may attack if they feel threatened, are protecting their young or territory, or if they are injured or ill. Animal bites and scratches can lead to serious diseases such as rabies.

Follow these tips to protect yourself:

  • Do not touch or feed any animals you do not know.
  • Do not allow animals to lick open wounds, and do not get animal saliva in your eyes or mouth.
  • Avoid rodents and their urine and feces.
  • Traveling pets should be supervised closely and not allowed to come in contact with local animals.
  • If you wake in a room with a bat, seek medical care immediately. Bat bites may be hard to see.

All animals can pose a threat, but be extra careful around dogs, bats, monkeys, sea animals such as jellyfish, and snakes. If you are bitten or scratched by an animal, immediately:

  • Wash the wound with soap and clean water.
  • Go to a doctor right away.
  • Tell your doctor about your injury when you get back to the United States.

Consider buying medical evacuation insurance. Rabies is a deadly disease that must be treated quickly, and treatment may not be available in some countries.

Reduce your exposure to germs

Follow these tips to avoid getting sick or spreading illness to others while traveling:

  • Wash your hands often, especially before eating.
  • If soap and water aren’t available, clean hands with hand sanitizer (containing at least 60% alcohol).
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. If you need to touch your face, make sure your hands are clean.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Try to avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home or in your hotel room, unless you need medical care.

Avoid sharing body fluids

Diseases can be spread through body fluids, such as saliva, blood, vomit, and semen.

Protect yourself:

  • Use latex condoms correctly.
  • Do not inject drugs.
  • Limit alcohol consumption. People take more risks when intoxicated.
  • Do not share needles or any devices that can break the skin. That includes needles for tattoos, piercings, and acupuncture.
  • If you receive medical or dental care, make sure the equipment is disinfected or sanitized.

Know how to get medical care while traveling

Plan for how you will get health care during your trip, should the need arise:

  • Carry a list of local doctors and hospitals at your destination.
  • Review your health insurance plan to determine what medical services it would cover during your trip. Consider purchasing travel health and medical evacuation insurance.
  • Carry a card that identifies, in the local language, your blood type, chronic conditions or serious allergies, and the generic names of any medications you take.
  • Some prescription drugs may be illegal in other countries. Call Nigeria’s embassy to verify that all of your prescription(s) are legal to bring with you.
  • Bring all the medicines (including over-the-counter medicines) you think you might need during your trip, including extra in case of travel delays. Ask your doctor to help you get prescriptions filled early if you need to.

Many foreign hospitals and clinics are accredited by the Joint Commission International. A list of accredited facilities is available at their website ( ).

In some countries, medicine (prescription and over-the-counter) may be substandard or counterfeit. Bring the medicines you will need from the United States to avoid having to buy them at your destination.

Malaria is a risk in Nigeria. Fill your malaria prescription before you leave and take enough with you for the entire length of your trip. Follow your doctor’s instructions for taking the pills; some need to be started before you leave.

Select safe transportation

Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 killer of healthy US citizens in foreign countries.

In many places cars, buses, large trucks, rickshaws, bikes, people on foot, and even animals share the same lanes of traffic, increasing the risk for crashes.

Be smart when you are traveling on foot.

  • Use sidewalks and marked crosswalks.
  • Pay attention to the traffic around you, especially in crowded areas.
  • Remember, people on foot do not always have the right of way in other countries.


Choose a safe vehicle.

  • Choose official taxis or public transportation, such as trains and buses.
  • Ride only in cars that have seatbelts.
  • Avoid overcrowded, overloaded, top-heavy buses and minivans.
  • Avoid riding on motorcycles or motorbikes, especially motorbike taxis. (Many crashes are caused by inexperienced motorbike drivers.)
  • Choose newer vehicles—they may have more safety features, such as airbags, and be more reliable.
  • Choose larger vehicles, which may provide more protection in crashes.

Think about the driver.

  • Do not drive after drinking alcohol or ride with someone who has been drinking.
  • Consider hiring a licensed, trained driver familiar with the area.
  • Arrange payment before departing.

Follow basic safety tips.

  • Wear a seatbelt at all times.
  • Sit in the back seat of cars and taxis.
  • When on motorbikes or bicycles, always wear a helmet. (Bring a helmet from home, if needed.)
  • Avoid driving at night; street lighting in certain parts of Nigeria may be poor.
  • Do not use a cell phone or text while driving (illegal in many countries).
  • Travel during daylight hours only, especially in rural areas.
  • If you choose to drive a vehicle in Nigeria, learn the local traffic laws and have the proper paperwork.
  • Get any driving permits and insurance you may need. Get an International Driving Permit (IDP). Carry the IDP and a US-issued driver's license at all times.
  • Check with your auto insurance policy's international coverage, and get more coverage if needed. Make sure you have liability insurance.
  • Avoid using local, unscheduled aircraft.
  • If possible, fly on larger planes (more than 30 seats); larger airplanes are more likely to have regular safety inspections.
  • Try to schedule flights during daylight hours and in good weather.

Medical Evacuation Insurance

If you are seriously injured, emergency care may not be available or may not meet US standards. Trauma care centers are uncommon outside urban areas. Having medical evacuation insurance can be helpful for these reasons.

Helpful Resources

Road Safety Overseas (Information from the US Department of State): Includes tips on driving in other countries, International Driving Permits, auto insurance, and other resources.

The Association for International Road Travel has country-specific Road Travel Reports available for most countries for a minimal fee.

Maintain personal security

Use the same common sense traveling overseas that you would at home, and always stay alert and aware of your surroundings.

Before you leave

  • Research your destination(s), including local laws, customs, and culture.
  • Monitor travel advisories and alerts and read travel tips from the US Department of State.
  • Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) .
  • Leave a copy of your itinerary, contact information, credit cards, and passport with someone at home.
  • Pack as light as possible, and leave at home any item you could not replace.

While at your destination(s)

  • Carry contact information for the nearest US embassy or consulate .
  • Carry a photocopy of your passport and entry stamp; leave the actual passport securely in your hotel.
  • Follow all local laws and social customs.
  • Do not wear expensive clothing or jewelry.
  • Always keep hotel doors locked, and store valuables in secure areas.
  • If possible, choose hotel rooms between the 2nd and 6th floors.

Healthy Travel Packing List

Use the Healthy Travel Packing List for Nigeria for a list of health-related items to consider packing for your trip. Talk to your doctor about which items are most important for you.

Why does CDC recommend packing these health-related items?

It’s best to be prepared to prevent and treat common illnesses and injuries. Some supplies and medicines may be difficult to find at your destination, may have different names, or may have different ingredients than what you normally use.

If you are not feeling well after your trip, you may need to see a doctor. If you need help finding a travel medicine specialist, see Find a Clinic . Be sure to tell your doctor about your travel, including where you went and what you did on your trip. Also tell your doctor if you were bitten or scratched by an animal while traveling.

If your doctor prescribed antimalarial medicine for your trip, keep taking the rest of your pills after you return home. If you stop taking your medicine too soon, you could still get sick.

Malaria is always a serious disease and may be a deadly illness. If you become ill with a fever either while traveling in a malaria-risk area or after you return home (for up to 1 year), you should seek immediate medical attention and should tell the doctor about your travel history.

For more information on what to do if you are sick after your trip, see Getting Sick after Travel .

Arabian Spicy Lamb Pilaf


You might be familiar with biryani from your favorite Indian restaurant, but this popular dish of rice, spices, meat and vegetables is a Middle Eastern staple, too.

Luxury Cruises to Africa

On a luxury Africa cruise, you will gain a unique perspective of this fascinating, multicultural region, whether you’re browsing the markets of Morocco or exploring the antiquities in the Egyptian port of Alexandria.

Celebrity’s itineraries take you to Casablanca, lying on Morocco’s sun-drenched Atlantic coast, Tangiers, gazing across the Straits of Gibraltar to Spain, and Alexandria, Egypt’s historic Mediterranean port. Each is different and every visit helps you to unpeel the layers of history that have shaped this region.

Africa Cruise Highlights

Ancient history.

From the iconic ancient library of Egypt’s Alexandria to the breathtaking and bold structure of the Hassan II mosque in Casablanca, there’s history at every turn. The Mediterranean is considered the cradle of civilization and a cruise is the ideal opportunity to learn about the different cultures that have passed through the region over the millennia. Sip tea in the squares of Tangier, and follow in the footsteps of 19th-century poets and artists. Visit 2,000-year-old holy sites, or shop in a 500-year-old souk for hand-made souvenirs.

Fun in the Sun and Sand

North Africa is rich in natural beauty, from green mountain ranges to leafy oases and the rolling dunes of the desert. Celebrity’s African ports have access to coastal and water activities, desert tours, hiking trails, and urban adventures that blend nature into human achievement and civilization. Make sure to check out a camel tour on the fringes of the Sahara, or explore the beach clubs on the golden sands around Casablanca.

Art and Artisan Gift Shopping

Cruises to North Africa offer an abundance of incredible shopping experiences. Visit labyrinthine bazaars in Egypt for cotton and clothing, or a Moroccan souk for hand-woven rugs and kilims. You can also shop for hand-carved olivewood and jewelry, dates and spices, and leatherware. Even if you prefer to window shop, the colors, scents and sounds of Africa’s markets and bazaars are irresistible.

Africa Cruise Ports

Casablanca, morocco.

The bustling, vibrant city of Casablanca is a feast for the senses, and one of the busiest ports along this coastline. This city boasts the European charm with Moroccan tradition, and is the country’s commercial center and largest population center. Visit the iconic Hassan II mosque as you stroll the scenic Boulevard de la Corniche along the sea. Sip traditional mint tea in the picturesque medina squares. Finish your day shopping for ​​ornate wood carvings, hand-made leather bags, and decorative tea sets at the Exposition Nationale d’Artisanat emporium.

Alexandria, Egypt

The city of Alexandria is brimming with ancient history, museums, mosques, and modern amenities for travelers looking for an adventure. It’s also a gateway to Cairo and the great pyramids of Giza as an overnight trip.

Make sure to visit the famous Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which commemorates the ancient Great Library of Alexandria, and houses over eight million books. Dine on some of the best of Egyptian seafood, sip on local tea, or sample sheesha (traditional flavored tobacco) in the culturally rich area of Anfushi, just west of the Citadel of Qaitbay. Be sure to make a quick visit to the Ras el-Tin palace, a former Sultanic summer home that’s visually stunning from an architectural perspective.

Tangier, Morocco

As a mid-20th century hub for European and American artists, writers, and expats, Tangier developed a reputation as a cultural center for North Africa. Today, it remains an important cultural heritage city and is a popular stop on Africa cruises. While in Tangier, don’t miss the Kasbah Museum, which showcases many of Morocco’s most treasured artifacts from the Roman and Islamic dynasty periods. For a fascinating day trip, head to Asilah, where you can shop and walk through the fortified Portuguese-built old town before heading back to your ship.

Africa Cruise Itineraries

Typical itineraries for African cruises include 10- to 12-night trips that span either the western Mediterranean or the eastern Mediterranean. These itineraries include additional calls in places such as Greece, Israel, Turkey, Spain, and the Canary Islands.


Why sail to africa with celebrity cruises.

Cruises to Africa are a great way to expand your imagination and delve deeper into the history of the Mediterranean region.

What cruise lines go to Africa?

The cruise line MSC Cruises USA offers the most cruises to Africa through Expedia from MSC Cruises USA is among the best cruise lines to Africa, with ships such as the MSC Orchestra and MSC Sinfonia visiting scenic locales like Cape Town , Walvis Bay, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Durban, and other ports of call for 4-day cruises and 5-day cruises. These luxurious floating hotels offer a wealth of options, from luxury suites to buffet dining and even Broadway shows. Azamara Africa cruises are also available for 7-day cruises to Africa vacations.

How can I find good deals on cruises to Africa?

It's easy to sort your options for cruises to Africa on Expedia by price, date of departure, and length of cruise, including 3-day cruises, 5-day cruises or 7-day cruises in 2024, among other options. A green box above a cruise price estimate shows the maximum discount you can get for that cruise. Be sure to compare the amenities between luxury cruises and cheaper cruises, such as full dinners, entertainment options, swimming pools, and social events, to get the most for your money. While shorter cruises like a 2-day cruise to Africa will offer lower overall price, a longer trip can give you more bang for your buck by offering a longer list of destinations like Tanzania and South Africa .

What to look out for when you book your Africa cruise?

If you’re looking for an upscale 7-day cruise in 2024 to Africa, you might want to consider a Cape Town cruise, while destinations like Zimbabwe and Tanzania cruises may stop at fewer locations but save you money. A river cruise up the historic Nile River will stop at iconic sights like the pyramids, the temples at Abu Simbel, and more. The peak season of July and August is likely to be more expensive, while off-season travel may offer lower costs, but some visitor attractions may not be open

Where are the best places to go on a cruise to Africa?

Choose from a wide range of Africa cruise destinations: a South Africa cruise, offered by MSC for example, lets you explore a vibrant country that's a unique blend of east and west with fine dining, shopping, nightlife, and beaches with soft sand and crystal-clear waters. A 7-day cruise to Madagascar, on the other hand, lets you explore dense jungles and steep mountains with lemurs and other exotic wildlife.

When is the best time to go on a cruise to Africa?

The peak season for a boat cruise to Africa tends to be late June through August, but since it's such a big continent, there is substantial local variety in the high season. During this time, most visitor attractions will be open and in full swing, but Africa cruise prices will likely be higher. The best Africa cruises for safaris occur between August and October, while September through December offers warm, dry weather that is ideal for comfort and still offers many deals on 5-day cruises or 7-day cruises. Cruises in North Africa, such as cruises to Egypt or cruises to Tunisia, are best suited for the shoulder seasons of autumn and spring when weather is mild.

How long does it take to go to Africa by cruise ship?

MSC Cruises in Africa, for example, offer 3-day cruises, 4-day cruises, or even 7-day cruises in Africa at various times throughout the year. Many bookings offer a closed-loop cruise in Africa, which means you start and end at the same port, with Cape Town being the most popular start and end point. Most cruises that go to Africa do not depart from the United States, so if you're looking for a cruise to Africa from Florida, you might have a hard time.

What are some great luxury cruises to Africa?

How do I book a cruise to Africa on Expedia?

Booking an unforgettable cruise to Africa on Expedia is as easy as browsing our preselected MSC Cruises offers or adding your intended dates of travel to find specific deals, such as for a cruise to Africa from Cape Town . You can then sort your results by departure date, location, duration, and price, and filter your results by cabin type, cruise line, and even the specific ship to fully customize your trip to your specific tastes. Choose a 3-day all-inclusive cruise or a 7-day cruise deal. Keep an eye out for the green text next to the price that indicates a discount is available.

Do I need a passport to cruise to Africa?

Because closed-loop cruises to Africa almost always begin and end at a port in Africa, you will likely need a passport to get to your initial port of call. Traveling to Africa by ship is a long journey, and cruise lines generally do not offer trips from the US to Africa and back. If your cruise visits different countries in Africa, you may also need a separate visa for one or more of the various countries you visit. Check with your cruise line in advance to find out the papers you might need for your cruise. You should always try to secure visas before departing for your Africa cruise in 2024.

Can I cancel my Africa cruise booking?

You can cancel your Africa cruise on the My Trips page or by contacting the Expedia customer support team, if you change your mind about your cruise. Before you decide to cancel, you should always check your cruise line's refund policy. Not all cruise lines offer full refunds and double-checking can help you to avoid surprises when you’re only offered a partial refund or have to pay cancellation fees. You can always check refund policies on our cruise line information page for your cruise to Africa.

About Africa Cruises

Pull into port in lively, cosmopolitan cities or on the edge of dramatic wildernesses in a spectacularly diverse and thrilling continent. 

Although it may not be the first continent that you think of when imagining cruise destinations, an Africa cruise offers vast, exhilarating and varied experiences that rival any of the cruise world’s top destinations. It has beach-covered island delights as stunning as the Caribbean, cultural cities as inspirational as Europe and swaths of untouched nature that easily match Alaska or Canada. Africa is intimidatingly large, but Africa cruises allow you to experience several different sides to this consistently beautiful continent.

Visitors speak in hushed tones of an “African spirit,” yet in truth each country has its own unique atmosphere. Take an Africa cruise vacation down the Chobe River in Botswana to get close to thirsty lions and hungry crocodiles or lounge on the beaches of Dakar in Senegal to experience a relaxed, west coast atmosphere. South Africa offers surfing in Durban and wine in Cape Town, while Madagascar promises dense jungles with lemurs. 

Just as the landscape can range from deserts to vineyards in a short space of time, so too are Africa cruise deals appealingly diverse. Luxury lines offer all-inclusive indulgence, with spacious ocean-view suites and local dining in gourmet, onboard restaurants. Alternatively, take a family-friendly Africa cruise between Zanzibar and Durban for wildlife-watching opportunities.

Itineraries for cruises to Africa vary wildly, too. Given the distance between ports, shorter, 7-day, cheap cruises to Africa are likely to cover only a few destinations. Allow yourself to travel for longer, however, and your cruise to Africa could last between 14 and 40 nights, following the coast all the way from Cape Town to Lisbon, Portugal. Pick a region of Africa, whether that’s the idyllic Seychelles Islands or the dramatic dunes of Namibia; then enjoy days spent skimming along the continent’s breathtaking coastline. 

Take an Africa cruise during its relatively long cruise season. Travel between October and May to enjoy the many attractions of the African coast. The Seychelles offer Africa cruise deals year-round while Madagascar has July options if you need more flexibility with your travel times or even a last-minute cruise deal to Africa.
