Comic Con Africa is thrilled to have announced an exciting new addition to its already geeky line-up of events. Next year, fans of the convention can set sail from shore to shore on a weekend-long cruise from Durban harbour to Cape Town from 15 to 18 March 2024.

In partnership with MSC Cruises and Super Events, The Comic Con Cruise promises to be a unique and unforgettable experience for fans of all ages.

Over the three nights at sea, on a new luxurious ship to South African shores – The MSC Splendida, guests can expect to enjoy fun events like themed dress up (cosplay) dinners, fandom specific meetups, kids gaming competitions, karaoke, geeky quizzes, and more onboard – as well as plenty of opportunities to meet and mingle with other fans.

“We’re really excited to be able to offer this unique experience to our fans,” said Carla Massmann, show director for Comic Con Cape Town and Comic Con Africa.

“In addition to two live festivals in 2024, the Comic Con Cruise really broadens the scope of Comic Con in South Africa. We are so excited to take Comic Con to the seas, and for the opportunity for the fans from all over the country to come together in this first ever experience.”

Renown Afrikaans music icon, and CEO of the Comic Con Cruise partner Super Events, Kurt Darren said “Being a massive Comic Con fan myself, I am so excited to see this cruise come to life. There will be something for every fan to do on this cruise and another excuse to dress up as superheroes or pop culture characters.”

Darren added “Space is limited so ensure that you reserve your cabin to avoid disappointment.”
