CAPE TOWN CRUISE SEASON REMAINS POSITIVE With most travel restrictions lifted, eager travellers made their way back to Cape Town. Since the cruise season began last October – we’ve welcomed 150 434 passengers and crew members. A total of 60 vessels made a stopover at the Cape Town Cruise Terminal, with another 12 still to come. RAJ SPICES UP THE WATERFRONT New to the Waterfront, The Raj serves up authentic North Indian cuisine – with ingredients imported from India. The restaurant started when Founder and Owner Dr. Arun Jairath, an ophthalmologist by trade, realised the need for an Indian restaurant in South Africa. In 1995, the very first The Raj restaurant was opened in Kyalami and since then, the brand has evolved into a successful well-known chain that has become a household name in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. The new restaurant is located on the Upper Level in the Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre. For bookings click here. WHAT’S ON IN OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD It’s a bumper weekend across the property.
