Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Having spent a great cruise in September on this ship we were really looking forward to this seven nighter in the Gulf.

Check in was shambolic to say the least, evidently this was due in part to the Emirate ways rather than the usually efficient RC way.

Access to staterooms was swift, partly due to the ship overnighting in Port Rashid Dubai.

Muscat try the souq at Muttrah avoid the Opera House unless you are into looking at new buildings and wanting to frequent a mall with Ott goids.
