In July this year, Christine Okoth, 30, flew from Nairobi to Italy to board a cruise ship for a sailing safari across four countries.

Once she landed at the departure port of Civitavecchia in Italy, together with her friend Maryam Shikanda, they explored France, Monaco and Spain aboard a luxury ship—Norwegian Epic.

‘‘Sleeping in one country and waking up in another thrills me. Cruising through the Mediterranean hotspots beats all my other travelling escapades. I fell in love with the cities that I had never been to and met people I have never met,” she says.

Christine and Maryam’s desire to holiday at sea for days started when they were browsing the Internet for a destination— particularly Santorini in Greece.
