I prefer a longer cruise to a 3 or 5 day and this was wonderful. We went to Mauritius and Reunion which was wonderful. Alcohol was extremely expensive and the collection of wines OK but the staff kept trying to sell you the really bad wine. Facilities were wonderful and it was a family cruise which encouraged lots of children. Swimming in the pool was a challenge but understandable at this time of the year. In the dining room water had to be paid for - I thought a jug of water would not break the bank and would be appreciated. The fruit juice at breakfast was powdered cordial which was not appropriate for a cruise of this nature. Entertainment was good. Cabins were very good. Would highly recommend one with a balcony. So peaceful to sit and read there. Dining room is definitely recommended for lunch and dinner. It is more relaxed and pleasant. Would definitely recommend the Easy Onboard option to minimise queuing for embarkation. Few challenges but overall a wonderful experience and amazing holiday.

An absolute treat - great way to meet awesome people & relax
