Sail Date: Oct 2018

This was our first cruise with Ponant and we were not disappointed. It was 5 star all the way. The food was magnificent and delicious for every meal. Our cabin with veranda was completely adequate for our needs as we do not spend much time in there. The toilet was separate to the bathroom which was unusual and very pleasing. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage. My only criticism is that the balustrade for the balcony is steel so if sitting on the veranda, one cannot see much at all. A perspex or some other transparent material would be better. Maybe becaue it is an icebreaker - I don't know?

Rhis is also our first cruise on a small ship and we were dispoointed some times in the lack of activities in the afternoon. Is this because the passengers are having nana naps?!

Staff were excellent and catered to our every request.

Port Reviews


Don't waste money on an expensive shore excursion. You can walk to the mosque and market from the port but ber careful whenyoui cross the street - they seem to have no regard for road rules. Casablanca is noisy and dirty but we felt quite safe.
