My wife and I are 30 and from the U.S., and took a 7-day "arabian" gulf (read: persian gulf) cruise for two reasons: First, we had an expiring RC credit that we had to use, and second, because the itinerary was awesome. We knew ... Read more

Check in was a breeze. It must have only taken 20 minutes. We had a large Ocean view on Deck 4 and this was perfect. There were no vibrations and you couldn't hear next door either! This is a nice size ship and has good amenities. ... Read more

Normally I don't cruise around Christmas time. The prices are too high. But this offer was unbelievable. The prices startet at 299 € per person. We had a nice veranda cabin midships. Big enough for one week. I had no great dining ... Read more

We decided to try Royal Caribbean Arabian Gulf cruise because the weather in the area would be warm but not to hot at this time of year. The embarkation was not too bad, we arrived in Dubai about 7.30 after an overnight flight from ... Read more

The ship does show its age a bit but it was the perfect size for us. Not a mega ship by all means. There were no crowds in key areas of the ship and the staff was very attentive. The waiters who took care of my husband and I were super! ... Read more
