Overall good cruise. Fantastic service from stateroom staff, along with the service from concierge lounge. The service in the reception and shore excursion was at an all-time low - but overall good service other places. We were surprised at how good the food was in the aquarius restaurant with good service. A bit noisy, and with "forced seating" with strangers at our table (made good friends though!) but overall a nice experience. Dining in the windjammer, not so good. Ports of call was an interesting mix. Khasab was not at all interesting. We made an excursion by bus through RCCL - but the most horrendous guide ever. Also made an excursion in Muscat (much better location), but again guide subpar quality. Another guide in Abu Dhabu - better this time, but still not worth money nor while. My tip for this itinerary; stay onboard or book excursions yourselves, especially if you are under 40 years of age.

Good cruise for relaxation

Cabin Review

Grand Suite - 1 Bedroom
Cabin GS 8006
Good cabin with excellent stateroom attendee service. Shower facilities was horrible as I am 187 cm tall. Showerhead was located at 165 cm and ceilin was at 184 cm. Needless to say - it's not for tall people. Thin walls - could hear neighbours very well.

No good place to eat breakfast unless you could sit outside on balcony. Inside was only a small coffeetable and a bartable with no chairs.

Balcony was great, but not very "private".
