Took the cruise from Cape Town to Lisbon (October 25 to November 17) and had a wonderful time. Port of calls between Cape Town and Lisbon were Walvis Bay, Namibia; Bom Bom Island, Principe; Lome, Togo; Takoradi, Ghana; Abidjan, Ivory Coast; Banjul, Gambia; Dakar, Senegal; Porto Grande, Cape Verde; and Las Palmas, Canary Islands. This was my third cruise on the Symphony, and although I enjoyed them all, this one was probably the best. I enjoyed the food, service, lecturers and entertainment, plus I was able to visit a part of the world that I have never been to before and I feel learn a great deal about the countries that we visited. I would recommend this cruise to anyone.
