5 Suez Canal Transit
Suez Canal Transit
Lying at the Red Sea end of the Suez Canal, the busy Egyptian port of Suez can also be your starting point for exciting trips to Cairo and the Pyramids at Giza. If your ship goes through the Canal, be out on deck throughout the transit, as it is one of the world’s most fascinating maritime experiences, creating the bizarre impression that you are sailing right through the dry heart of the desert. The present, 101-mile-long Canal took 15 years to build, was completed in 1869 and shaved a mere 7,000 miles off the journey from England to India. It is the second to cross the Isthmus of Suez – the first was constructed in the 5th century BC and was in use until the 8th century.

Durban
Three-wheeled Tuk Tuk open cabs ply the Golden Mile, Durban’s palm-lined promenade. Restaurants and oriental bazaars like the Victoria Street Market are fragrant with spice and incense, all reminders that these shores look out over the Indian Ocean and exotic Asian destinations beyond. Follow the arts and crafts trail, go golfing or fishing, visit a crocodile farm or head inland to the game reserves of KwaZulu Natal, veldts that lead the eye to the craggy peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains.

We’ve just completed a 24 day repositioning cruise from Venice to Durban in South Africa via Suez Canal. It was the best ever itinerary. There are a lot of day s at sea but we love the total relaxation. What amazing and diverse sights we’ve seen. Sailing away from Venice is an amazing experience alone. The Suez Canal is so interesting. Someone stood alone by a house in the desert and shouted ,I love you, so I shouted back’love you too’. I’m not likely to see him again! There are lakes and roads and bridges and mainly sand but as you sail out of the canal it feels special. We then sailed up into the Gulf of Aqaba visiting Eilat and Aqaba, two very close but very different places. We then sailed south into the Indian Ocean with our next visits to Seychelles, Mauritius and La Reunion. Again all very different but all with the most beautiful beaches. The cruise ended in Durban but the opportunities for further adventure is limitless in SA. Thanks Iglu for everything and thank s to MSC.

Beautiful ship, exceptionally clean. Very pleasant cabins large, comfortable and clean. Excellent embarkation and disembarkation well organised and smooth. Well organised port transfers and shuttlrs. Excellent ship entertainment in bars and lounges but guest entertainers were very average. Entertainment team on ship were poor at organising daily activites especially sea days and big screen a waste of time. Food was diabolical in both buffet and restaurant worse of any cruise ships we have been on, it was cold, lacking in variety, meat tough not fit to eat. Restaurant was very poor food and fine dining was non existent eg large plastic water bottles on table no toothpicks, sauce bottles on table etc.
