Super hot!! Santa Maria was great fun, especially the drive to and from there, as well as 3 of the 4 vehicles breaking down - it just added to the entire experience. There were also a large amount of people all in one area on the islands, shouting and drinking, and it just didn't make for a pleasant or relaxing atmosphere, so we returned to the ship as soon as we had finished our excursions.

Portuguese Island excursion was average. Lounge areas are not properly laid out to accommodate all passengers. Pomene is excellent. The white sandy beaches offered good swimming.

Unless you book a VIP area or get off on the first few boats to shore you will end up standing in the sun all day long.

This was amazing and well organised. MSC was in the ball! Not a hitch to get off the ship and neither to get back on. I loved the boats(tander not sure if it was called that) used to transfer us because I was afraid that they were going to use those dingy type things with a speed boat engine to take us across. Very wonderful experience, if my next cruise doesn’t offer this then I will be very upset and disappointed because MSC has set the standard very high! Read Less

We went by boat to Inhaca island where we were hounded by the locals there wanting to take us on a tour etc. Prior to heading over the MSC organiser did advise us of this but it was nothing like what she said. We didn't know where our guide was, there were no clear markings of which 4x4 vehicles we were looking for. It was quite scary. However, once in the '4x4' we had a rather interesting drive along sand roads to St Maria for snorkeling. The drive is a whole experience in itself (with vehicles really not up to scratch and surely maybe not even road worthy!). However, we all arrived safely. An experience we will certainly not do again but will always remember. Read Less

What a lovely place to get off. Really feels like you are on a paradise. Except for the locals trying to sell you all kinds of stuff, but they are supervised by the Local police.

Portuguese Island is so much fun. The water is always warm and snorkeling there is the best. The only negative is the harassing vendors trying to sell their items to all of us. It was a bit much when you're just trying to take in everything on the island while there are people following you to buy things. Read Less
