Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Outside Twin with Shower

We arrived in Dubai after an overnight flight. transfers were smooth and arrived at cruise port by 10.30am Cabins were ready by 11.15am- Great start to the holiday.

Day 1 First port of call was Bahrain - a very enjoyable excursion to the F1 Track.

Second Stop was 2 days in Abu Dhabi - first day Shuttle bus took us to a newly finished Mall on the outskirts of town, quite disappointing as there was no way of walking to the main part of town, bit of a wasted day really. Second day we went on a cruise excursion to Grand Mosque- a visit to a traditional handmadecrafts village, great opportunity to buy local crafts - trade in Diram, Euro's and Dollars. Very friendly and look out for the man that does weaving really worth a visit.A drive around the sites of Abu Dhabi and then a final visit was to a Fort .. this was a superb tour and I would really recommend it as we saw lots and it was good value at £40 each.

Cabin Review

Outside Twin with Shower

Cabin LB

The cabin was a decent size and well maintained, everything worked and was nice and clean.

Small down side just one plug but they did also have a hairdryer/ kettle point. Dhon was our cabin steward, extremely friendly and helpful .

(The children enjoyed the ship but did not join any of the kids clubs).
