Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

7 night ME cruise from Dubai with my wife over Xmas. The ship itself was fine, but the food in the buffet and main dining room was pretty poor. Low quality and variety. The fresh pizzas were good, as were the breads, pastries and barista made coffee. Plenty of bars, with the best range of wines being in Dim Sum. Ship was packed, but the bar and seating area at the back of deck 15 was good. Very good team up there. Gym was okay. Entertainment was okay, but not a patch on the US owned ships. We had the lowest grade balcony cabin and this was pretty good. Decent, over bath shower and comfy bed. Ports of call okay, with Muscat being the stand out one. Highly recommend a 2 hour private taxi tour for 50 euro. Getting on and off easy enough, despite the ship being full for the week

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B1

Good enough for a week. Room on balcony for 2 chairs and a table. KS bed and decent enough bathroom.

Jumped in a taxi for a 1 hour tour. 30 euro well spent and saw the main parts


Walked around from the ship. Not much to see. 4 hour dhow

trip looked dull and uncomfortable. Better off staying onboard
