We spent an idyllic day on the island. It’s very unspoiled compared to the islands off the Mauritian coast. Just have to be wary of jelly fish though! We booked the private lounger area which was money well spent. It included a free drink and...More

Beautiful blue waters and nice sunny weather made it a great day trip coming off the MSC sinfonia. A really fun time.

We had an amazing time here. We went snorkeling at Santa Maria. The coral rocks are sharp so be careful, carry an umbrella and sandals as it's really hot... The beach is absolutely perfect! Will definitely visit again!

After reading so many posts about the awful boarding at Durban I was pleasantly surprised to find it was not so! Yes, there were many passengers, but the queues moved and it only took around 30 minutes! No need for the FastLane extra expense boarding...More

It was our first sea cruise and MSC did not disappoint. The cocktails were excellent, meals divine. Rooms were a little small, although we spent most times not being in the room. I did not enjoy the onboarding, i think MSC could definitely stream line...More

Hi If you are British you need a visa. Drinking coupons not worth the money, rather buy on your card and settle the night before you leave the ship. I must say that we did not enjoy our trip on the MSC.
