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.
