What a disappointment! This was the first cruise we had been on and it has put us off cruising for life.

Although the ship is due for a refit next year, we didn't really notice how tired it was. The cabin was fine, dining was great - great variety of food and plenty of it. Dining Room wine waiter refilled the glasses of the male guests - ladies had to ask for a refill? At some tables the bottle was left for the male diner... never at an all female table. It took a minimum of 20 minutes from ordering a drink to actually getting it?

Staff on the whole (apart from the Guest Relations???) were friendly and helpful.

Entertainment and Activities were dire! The theater hosted third rate entertainers and the activities consisted of throw the bean bag into a hole and ping pong? Evening activities seemed to be staff doing there utmost to sell you every type of watch from Rolex to Citizen, diamonds, designer clothes, jewelry, holidays.... they even had an art gallery with art auctions every day/evening? It must have been a contest to see who could con you out of the most money on your trip.

Tours had been arranged in advance from Cruising Excursions and were excellent. India was a bit disappointing but could have spent more time in Muscat and Dubai.

Embarkation and disembarkation was surprisingly easy in all ports.

Cabin Review

Cabin Ocean View (03) 3010

The cabin was average, bit tired looking. Had to ask for toiletries however towels were changed twice a day (not that we asked for them to be changed, we hung them back up after use but when we came back after breakfast/dinner they had been changed).

We had ten minutes at the end of the Grand Mosque tour to run in and out again.

This was an unexpected private tour of Muscat... Beautiful City.

Kochi (Cochin)

Lovely tour visited the Portuguese fishing nets and saw the meat/fish market.

Mumbai (Bombay)

Lovely driver and guide. Went to the biggest outdoor laundry. Did some shopping. Visited Jain Temple... lots of beggars in the city itself, very sad.
