THE luxury liner ‘Hebridean Spirit’ stopped in at Richards Bay Port for two days.
On their way down from Madagascar, this was the vessel’s first port of call in South Africa, which saw passengers disembarking for much anticipated trips to Zululand’s game reserves.
A relatively small luxury liner of 90 metres in length, this vessel had 71 passengers on board and has a complement of 74 crew. There are five decks boasting a number of restaurants and lounges and a small spa. For this ocean-going luxury, the top range of accommodation comes in at one thousand pounds per day, while the more modest prices range around two and a half thousand pounds per week.
Regarded as a ‘wallet free’ holiday, the cost is all inclusive, including all trips at stopovers.
