We disembarked in Dubai and found it be fabulous. We stayed a week at the Marriott Executive Apartments Dubai Creek. This is a great place to stay as we had a two bedroom, two and half bath apartment that was over 1700 square feet. The service was exceptional and security was always friendly and helpful. The roof top pool was great day and night. We used ABC tours for three different tours and found them to be excellent and among the cheapest in town. We took a Dubai city tour that was more an expected and gave an excellent overview of the city. We took a dessert safari with dinner that was outstanding as well as a package that allowed us to visit the Burj Al Arab seven star hotel. I would recommend ABC tours for everything you want to do in Dubai. We flew Royal Jordian airlines which I would not recommend as many locals to Jordan fly them and their bathroom etiquette is not what we are used to in the USA. They do not flush toliets and have different body washing habits that include not bathing for several days. Also, this airline makes you go to a transfer station at each plane change and it is mad chaos trying to get a boarding pass for the next flight. We almost missed our flight from Amman to Chicago because there were 200 people waiting at a transfer desk with one worker and we had 30 minutes until the flight left. In Amman we had to go through three heavy security checks within the airport and we never left the secured area from our flight from Dubai. I guess they have a lot of problems so maybe that is why so many security checks within the airport.
