  • "All well"

    No problems at all. Arrived, was given the key for my cabin, travelled to the destination and got off! The cabin was fine, although a couple of things not working (the in cabin radio control, but I don’t know if there was even anything to listen to!) or open (it’s January!). Otherwise all fine, friendly crew, clean ship. The food is expensive, so it’s worth getting the food vouchers as you end up paying a bit less

Tunis Guide

Tunis is the largest city in Tunisia and its capital and is located on a large Mediterranean Sea gulf, the Gulf of Tunis, behind the Lake of Tunis and the port of La Goulette. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Carthage, perhaps one of the most important archaeological sites ever found, is located around 12 km from Tunis. Many artefacts and the site of the ancient city have been unearthed including early Punic artefacts and Roman, Byzantine and Vandal buildings. The city has an eclectic mix of architectural styles, wide streets and narrow alleyways that are sometimes criss-crossed by tramways.

Although the old stone walls of the 9th century Medina no longer exist but the narrow streets, mosques, souks and historic structures remain and have also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are a number of festivals held in the city each year the largest being the Carthage International Festival which takes place during July and August. The festival, which was established in 1964, attracts visitors from around the world and much of it is held in the old amphitheatre of Carthage and hosts performances by singers, musicians, actors, dancers and shows films on outdoor screens.


Palermo Guide

The city of Palermo is located on the Italian island of Sicily and lies on the island's north west coast and has a large and strategically important natural port, next to the Monte Pellegrino. The city is typically Mediterranean and can trace its history back to the 8th century and is today known for its Norman buildings, fabulous palaces and the hustle and bustle of its markets. Palermo's historic centre is the Quattro Canti district, which means 'Four Corners' and is where a number of the city's most spectacular attractions can be found. These include the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The cathedral's sheer size and lovely architecture really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Also popular in the city is the medieval Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi and the 12th century Castello della Zisa. For visitors who enjoy the performing arts there is also the Teatro Massimo which is a recently refurbished theatre that puts on regular performances.

Ferries from the city's port depart to Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples and Tunisia.
