Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Balcony

We received an up grade to a balcony cabin, had an excellent cabin crew member,Bambang. Rarely had any spare time as there was so much organized activity to keep us occupied. The ports visited in many cases were a first time for the ship and ourselves. We were offered a large choice of shore tours at each stop which we really enjoyed. The food choice and range was excellent at any dining place on the ship and our table of 8 was spoilt by the service and quality of the meals at our 5:30 pm meal.

Overall, our time onboard was brilliant thanks to the organized running of the ship by the Captain and crew.

The shore excursion to Petra in Jordan was on our bucket list and was a highlight of the tour except that through lack of information and understanding we decided that my wife would be unable to undertake the long and strenuous walk and climb it entailed. Had I known, it would have been possible for my wife to have taken a horse and buggy ride both down and back, she would have been able to go. To me that was not highlighted enough and was our biggest disappointment.
