Decided to do the world as a ‘Well Why Not’ and wasn’t disappointed generally. Arcadia is a very stable ship in adverse weather conditions. Cabins were very comfortable, although a tad tired/well worn.
Meals in Meridian Restaurant were excellent, think there was only one dish I disliked and that was me, not the restaurant’s choice. The Sindhu is totally delicious.
Entertainment was very mixed. Mark Labett (The Chase) was particularly good as were the many talks by naturalist Nigel Marven. So many to chose from. The Headliners in my opinion weren’t up to much as the female lead singers always shouted rather than sang. The Runaround Kids were excellent just a pity they have a silly name. Too many jugglers and mind reader type acts, once is enough! Entertainment Manager Emma was very personable, the same could not be said of her counterpart when Emma was on leave.
Just tired but very comfortable bed
Really good and guide was both amusing, sassy and informative
Very poor excursion of ‘town’ there was no town. Got taken to tour guides’ brothers jewellery store, another relatives rug shop and a bar where we in what can only be described as a ‘lock in’ and given fire water to drink and locusts covered in salt. Not good value, not very entertaining and all in all not a place you’d want to visit again
Interesting tour and lovely location
Interesting and very colourful
Very quick stop because of cyclone back lash but what we saw was great. Lovely city, pretty flat
Rather not have gone here. Couldn’t ge5 back on the ship quick enough
Quite uninteresting place with little character or charm. Weather didn’t do it any favours either
Great experience and the living museum was so amazing, weather was good too
Did our own thing meeting relatives, went up into the desert to see sunset which was spectacular. Really enjoyed the vibes but wouldn’t want to stay there, very dusty and smoggy
Not very enthralling and so mosqued out! Found it tedious and not very enjoyable
