Lord Nelson arrives in Cape Town in high southern summer and spends about three weeks with voyages for South Africans. She departs from Durban for her voyage to Kochi in India.
Europa comes to Cape Town every spring after her Antarctica Season for her annual refit and maintenance period. Most years in May, looking all smart gleaming white new paint, she heads north up the Atlantic. But in 2013 she will head into the Indian Ocean as part of her Round the World Voyage to Perth.
Oosterschelde will call into Cape Town and leave in company with Europa for Perth and all points east.
