About Reunion

Located in the Indian Ocean just east of Madagascar is the island of Reunion - this cruise destination reveals a haven of French culture and home to a wildly mountainous countryside. Discovered by the Portuguese, today the population is an interesting mix of ethnic and religious variety - from the French to the Africans, Malays and Indians.

Born of volcanic origin the island is popular for an abundance of natural attractions. On our cruises to Reunion highlights include the peaks of the still-active Piton de la Fournaise, and Piton des Neiges, the islands highest point. Southwest of the mountains you will find the collapsed calderas of Cirque de Salazie, Cirque de Cilaos and Cirque de Mafate.

On Reunion cruises you can visit the capital Saint-Denis and enjoy its brassieres, bistros and continental café culture or swim in the lagoons of St-Gilles-les Bains. Garden lovers will delight in the Domaine du Grand Hazier, an 18th century sugar planters residence displaying a variety of tropical flowers and fruit trees.
