- Sail Date: January 2018

- Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom – Fantastica
We found the buffet in Pago Pago & Bora Bora rather overwhelming, so decided to breakfast and lunch in La Reggio Restaurant, which was more tranquil, and it was nice to be served at the table, having said that, the buffet in La Reggio was also excellent, and the fresh pasta cooked before your very eyes was just amazing. We took two of the ship excursions, one to Muscat in Oman, which was beautiful, and one to see dolphins whilst on a dhow, in Khasab, Oman. Both of these trips were so well organised and we thought good value. The pool areas on the ship were very clean and well looked after by the staff, all the bar staff were very accommodating and efficient. There was so much choice of entertainment at night that we found it hard to choose where to go. White Night in the Aft Bar was just amazing! I would not hesitate in booking this ship again as I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

KhasabWe took the Dhow cruise to see the “fiords “ and the dolphins. This was just amazing, the scenery was stunning and the dolphins came out to play. We then had a stop for swimming on telegram island. Our guide again was very informative and gave an interesting commentary. We were offered refreshments aboard which was very nice.View All 21 Khasab Cruise Port Reviews
I would recommend this trip, and would do it again myself.

MuscatThis was a very good tour. We saw the Sultans Palace, We had an hour in the Souk and then returned to the coach to continue to the opera house and the mosque. We had a young tour guide who was studying tourism and she was very informative and spoke very good English. For me a four hour tour is just about the right amount of time and we had a lovely morning and was back to the ship in time for lunch.View All 12,237 Muscat Cruise Port Reviews
