Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2019
Excursion to Wadi Rum. Lunch at a Bedouin Camp. Visit uninteresting places,
Seating at Wadi Rum lunch. Crawling with cats

We wanted to visit Dubai. The ship. The crew. The food. The entertainment all very good. It he itinerary had Beeb changed about a week before departure and we were not notified.we would finish in Oman. Then on our penultimate day travel by free bus to Dubai.

But due to medical emergencies the ship diverted , delaying our arrival in Oman by 24 hours. So we didn't get to see Dubai.

Our first stop Aqaba ,we stayed for two days and after departure it was announced we had taken on security guards, we would picking up weapons at sea. Some decks and areas of ship were closed for safety against pirate attack. This was around the Gulf of Aden.

Cabin Review

Nice clean cabin. Comfy bed. Nice bathroom.
