Stayed in Dubai pre and post cruise, embarkation and disembarkation was smooth. We had a large interior cabin and had to ask for the bed to be split so that it was easier to get into the beds through the middle rather than the side.The cupboard doors and the drawers need updating, very noisy when opening and closing. We could hear the cupboard doors shut and open in the cabins either side of ours. The food in the main dining room was ok, for 2 days running we were served cold food, noticed on the second day that the waiter took everyone's orders first and than returned from the galley with all the starters, sometimes 20+, by the time we received ours they wee cold. After this we decided to dine in Windjammers were the choice of food was good. We spent most of our day time in the Solarium, although for adults only children were in the pool and jaccuzi until there were asked to leave by the staff. We also noticed that some smokers were smoking in areas which were not the designated smoking area, RC need to monitor and manage this accordingly. Overall the service was good, the ship definitely needs a good makeover but I would not cruise on this ship again.

A bit of a let down
