The main reason for myself and My husband making this wonderful cruise was that we did the reverse trip from fabulous Venice to our home city Cape Town five years previously on the marvelous MSC Opera and had enjoyed it immensely. So when the opportunity presented it itself to once again cruise with the same company but in the opposite direction we were very quick to reserve our berths on board.
It was also also interesting to meet all the different nationalities of people on board especially when using the breakfast and lunch buffet with the table sharing procedure, another very interesting part of the cruise Was the many and varied shows and talks that were given which were always of a very high standard. We particularly enjoyed the Old trial murder trials that were given and also the talks by Stephen Cloete.
The various ports of call were most intereting, and from the very start of the cruise to the final disembarkation we were extremely impressed and even at the very end having the captain saying goodbye with a handshake and a smile made a lasting impression we shall never forget!
