The meeting point for anything we did, eating travel or just fun.
NorthStar, the long arm on the ship. Viewing all from the heights.
The view from the NortStar, not a great pic but you get the idea!
Shopping with the stars
Just one one of the many great meals onboard.

We chose this to be our introduction to cruising. Being disabled we booked an accessible suite and were not Dissapointed, the stateroom was superb with the balcony having a ramp to get in and out, a full wet room shower and everything was lower to suit wheelchair users. Access was great with the larger door having an auto opener fitted.

The food was, without a doubt, a high point. The specialist dining was worth every penny, but no way would anybody feel shortchanged with the standard package, it was all plentiful and the selections available would suit any palette.

The entertainment was plentiful and would suit the vast majority.

Cabin Review

Cabin Accessible balcony

Great size, easily accessible, superb balcony, wet room was great.

The bed was really comfortable and large enough to get lost in.

Air on worked well and the powered automatic door was brilliant.

Port Reviews


Plenty of time to do your own thing, or go with an excursion.


Having lived there for some years the excursion was not for me, but to see the real Oman would need a few days


More time was needed so we stayed for a while, lots of rules and regs but a great place to visit.
