  1. Namibia is a country. Main port is Walvis Bay, assume this was the port of call. Not a lot to see, Kalahari Dessert maybe. The run up the Skeleton Coast would be interesting though.

      This tourists that like commenting a lot around where that Madeira is full of drugs and dealers and homeless. This transatlantic ships should be inspected by the police to see in they bring in drugs since no one of this people think that the tourists not capable of doing such thing . Or even yachts and sailboats can bring that in independent what this lot thinks
