Dubai to Cape Town via India, the Indian Ocean and East Coast of Africa. We visited some exotic places which are all intersting in their own way but not many you would want to return to. Seychelles stands out as somewhere to go if you like sun and beaches to laze on but as a cruiser I don't think we will go back.
The best bit about cruising is the onboard experience, which is made up of all the elements of staff, food, drink, entertainment, activities, ship amenities. Regent scores on staff in all departments. The extra mile they go to is exceptiona. One example is visiting a sister ship in harbour to get a case of my favourite wine that had run out and when that had gone going ashore to find a close replacement. No prompting from me. Also coming to my suite to deliver a bottle as soon as it was on board. Amazing. The cruise director Ray Solaire is a very interesting man of many talents and sets the scene for the entertainment staff amply supported by Jenna and the dancers, who run all the games and fun during the day.
I thought the inclusive tours were fine and very well organised.
Relaxing cruise along the coast.
Perhaps the dirtiest place I have seen. Such a shame for a world heritage site.
Went to the Sea World and Wet and Wild park. Only £7 to get in. Great.
This combined a visit to the church and a harbour cruise. Interesting and we saw some elephants up verey close.
Saw the sunset. Give it a miss as so many people go up the hill and double park what should be a 90 minute trip take 3 hours. Don't miss table mountain but go late to miss the queue.
