We had some doubts after reading several reviews regarding the ship, especially the availability of good wines by the glass and the standard of service. However once on board we had no issue with the quality of wine, when asking for some other region of wine the staff were very obliging and delivered. The standard of service was exemplary apart from the shore excursion team who seemed to be less than well organised.

We had an experience when trying to leave the ship for an excursion to the Bait Adam Museum in Muscat, Oman. The idea to get very one to arrive back to the ship allot the same time seems to be ridiculous, but thus occurred on numerous occasions. On this day we were being made to stay onboard whilst all of the retiring gets came aboard. The chief Security Officer when we approached him just ignored us. After some time we approached another Officer and complained to him, at this point he approached the security guy, who complained he was to busy! Well talking to certain cruises and taking his eye off the ball is not being busy.

The excursions in general were not that good, RSSC call most of them Free, well there are not as they are built into the cost of your cruise, you have to pay more for like seeing Petra or Luxor. Most excursions were over crowded, only because the coaches were not spaced out enough between stopping points. Some of the coaches in some countries were in a poor state (Jordan and Egypt). Again for what the cruise cost should have been better.

The cabin has plenty of room, however the balcony is not very big

Fall of history, so much to see, you needs weeks to see it all
