After four days at sea we finally reached an island where we were able to dock. Welcome to Mauritius!! Port Louis is the capital city and was named after King Louis XV.
After breakfast we walked into the Caudan Waterfront and Shopping Mall…it should have been an easy 20 minute walk but the humidity was so high, about 85%, it was a killer…and when we weary travellers finally got there most of the shops were closed as it was a Sunday. So it was gritted teeth for the return walk to the ship.
Back on board we stripped off all our clothes and sent them straight to the laundry…one of the benefits of being Diamond members is the complimentary laundry and pressing service…a definite plus factor.
Then off to the pool for a cooling swim and a cold corona…followed by lunch at the Grill, well I had a salad as I’m still not eating much.
As I’m still feeling rough I spent the afternoon in bed. I will definitely stay on board tomorrow, the 19th.
