Secret of the Seychelles. We purposly picked the Royal Star because of her size -- Small. Well, we were not disapointed, she was wonderful. But do not book a cruise if you like "Butlins afloat". She is over 50 years old with brass and wood everywhere. A real touch from the past. Being a small ship everything is smaller so don't expect a stateroom as a cabin. They are ideal for the cruise and you have the option to upgrade if required. The food was good and served most of the day. The staff are faultless, providing service which is not expected nowadays. If you book, book because you want a ship that is small and very friendly and you will have a fantastic trip. We did.
