Sail Date: Apr 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Suite

30 days all up covering three back to back cruises.

What stands out above everything else is the impeccable dedication of the staff from Commandant Regis Daumesnil down to the humblest toiler, who would have to be the people who did the laundry. We never saw them but without them, it would have beeen a very different voyage.

The Commandant was exceptional in many ways, in particular the way he interacted with the passengers. Not only was he at the gangway for our arrival but every day we departed for excursions he was there to say Bon Jour and hope you have a good trip. It was an intensely personal touch and, in another example, many times he lunched and talked with passengers at the buffet on deck 6. He seemed genuinely interested in who his passengers were and in their welfare. I found him a fascinating conversationalist on a range of subjects and his commentary on tours of the bridge by passengers in French and English was very informative and absorbing.

Deluxe Suite

Cabin DX

Excellent use of space in this cabin, 602 is a deluxe suite on the sixth deck. We had the service of an excellent major-domo, a Mauritian with the unlikely name of West!
