Itinerary and reputation. The itinerary took us to Athens, Agios Nicoleos, Suez Canal, Safaga(Luxor), Aqaba(Petra), Salalah, Mucat and Dubai. The specialty restaurants were very good (Aquafina & Prime C), the others were just OK.
Visibility in the theatre was quite limited as there is no grading in the seating...a lot is missed if you aren't in the front row!
Mosaic Cafe has good coffee...including Nespresso but there is a charge for Nespresso..coffee is better here than other venues.
Sometimes we received conflicting info on what to do/not do when ashore...do your research!
The Living Room is a good place to hangout. It's quiet most of the time and you get a good view there.
The Azamazing event was held in Wadi Rum in Jordan. It would have been nicer if the event was held earlier in order to appreciate the sunset. The sound and lighting for the event could be improved a lot since where we were sitting, you could hardly hear anything being said. The lighting was focused behind the dancers, it was difficult to see the dancing in the dark. It would be nice to include some snacks in order to taste some local flavours...all we had was some local bread!
Cabin shower is a bit tight. The bed was very comfortable. The cabin stewards were great. Because our veranda was in the stern, it got some soot from the stack, so you have to be careful where you sit if the soot landed on the chair cushions.
