The ship docks on a pier which seems to be in the middle of nowhere. The shuttle takes you to the nearest resort where there is a public beach and a few shops. Our trip visited a rice museum then took us to a cable car for a view over the island. There were long queues here and when we reached the top it was misty so the view wasn't that good. This was an expensive trip for what was included. The next two ports were Maritius and Reunion we did not take trips at either of these but wish we had. We didn't see anything of the islands. The shuttle service at Maritius was to a tourist water front with shops it was 5 mins away as the crow flies but 30 minutes by bus. At Reunion it was to a small beach resort.
