H the same aving already taken an 8 night Cruise with the same Company but visiting Abu Dhabi and Oman, this time we wanted to see Bahrain & Quatar.
We embarked at Abu Dhabi which we had already visited on our previous Crusie.
Embarkation was quick & smooth. Our cabin was ready as soon as we went aboard.
There has been a few changes to the ship which we had already sailed with on a Transfer Cruise . Changes for the best . 2 new theme restaurants and new larger shops. Fantastic selection in the Jewellery & Watch shop, also a vast choice of Tolietries,Make-up & Perfumes.
General state of the ship is sparkling clean.Our cabin steward (Darma) was efficient & always available with a smile.Towels were changed twice daily.
Bed & pillows were very comfortable and luckily we had no problems with the Air conditioning.
No problems with Breakfast in our cabin. Always punctual. Also went to the La Reggia Restaurant for Breakfast. Vast selection on the Buffet & also a choice of cooked Breakfast available. Quality of food is good & variable especially in the Bora Bora Self-Service. However Dinner in the La Reggia Restaurant proved to be a disappointment. Meagre portions , rather tasteless and often just warm.Even the presentation could be improved.
Service was excellent and our Waiters (Erwandi & I Putu) were always attentive and helpful.
A surprise Birthday celebration by the Waiters improvising a Band was memorable !
Entertainment was very good. Beautiful Costumes ! Dancing & Singing top class in all Shows.
Our day on Sir Bin Yas Island was very relaxing. Plenty of things to do . Good Self -Service lunch available.
Bahrain proved alittle disappointing, Doha is in full expansion , 3 full days in Dubai were fantastic!
