Had the pleasure of travelling in the Arabian Gulf on MV Horizon, it was outstanding even though the ship is 30 years old it is still a good ship and the service is exceptional, food very good , service great and the advantage of free drinks was a nice touch. The shows were great, everything is done in Spanish and English, majority of crew are Pilipino so no problem, compared to the opposition MSC who I have travelled with out of Durban several times, always a disaster and terrible food, there is no comparison, Pullmantur really goes the extra mile. I thought the food quality was only because of the ship going out of Durban but after hearing the horrendous stories from passengers from two MSC ships in the Arabian Gulf they all complained about the bad food on their MSC ships and this stunned me. Seeing a certain South African travel agency loves to run Pullmantur down and I have now had first class experience to it not being true. I now throw out a challenge to the CEO of MSC if the comments made by several of your passengers is not being true show me that this is not the case.
You want a great cruise try Pullmantur you won’t be sorry we met several UK passengers who were on their 3 trip on Pullmantur so that’s good enough to hear the positives,
Cabin was great even the bathroom was bigger than the usual ship with a big shower, if you needed ice it was there in less than 5 minutes
THe worst service I have ebver had, they liar about the busses, you sit waiyting onthe bus till they fuill it for Yas Island sector, when there are cruise ships in they cannot handle the capacity it was a waste of good hard earnt money at E62 per person, then they dump you in town and tell you to find your own way back to the shipView All 12 Big Bus Sightseeing Tour Reviews
