Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

I went on with an open mind after reading the reviews, after a few hours the style wears off and the reality is clear.

Only a handful of staff are happy, you get told wrong information on a constant basis! You are clearly putting some out asking for service!

Food is very ordinary in the buffet and the selection is the same day in day out. Lunch food is just left out until dinner tome. The pizza is good and the burgers are all lined up like a fast food restaurant.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B1

Okay room but a view of life boats, the one outside our room was constantly being worked on!

Port Reviews


Got on at Dubai quick and efficient check in

Abu Dhabi

Didn’t get off but good range of tours (we’ve just done them before or had no interest in going to Ferrari world)

Sir Bani Yas Island

Didn’t get off as tender and the weather was bad that day


Best port, you can walk to the shops and souk. We hired a taxi for one hour (30 euros) and did the highlights which was amazing tour


Really nothing there but a big supermarket. Rubbish port.
