We have just returned from Red Sea cruise. Overall great value for money Flights and check in easy at Manchester but Sharm el Sheikh airport was a nightmare with no reps on hand for advice. No one knew where to go! Ship was immaculate and the refurbishment is nearly complete. The gem of this cruise was the crew who were the best we have experienced cruising. The entertainment was good and once again the staff were enthusiastic about their work. Food in the main restaurant was of a good standard and the buffet at lunch had variety and choice. The outside eating area was also of a good standard Staff ensured we all used the sanitisers! We ate twice in Mistrals but I did not think we would go again as we enjoyed the food better in the main restaurant Wine was reasonably priced and the cocktails.If the cocktail was not on the list they would mix one to your liking The ports of call as said in previous reviews are working ports and are not picturesque at all! But are gateways to the excursions.We did Wadi Rum in 4x4s great experience seeing where Lawrence of Arabia was Petra was magnificent We arrived as Obama was leaving all his helicopters and security were there. Guides were great as well Also did the beach trip which was enjoyable. All in all great value for money cruise great staff
