The Gulf has been on our bucket list for quite a while. We have frequently stopped over at DXB but never before been outside the airport.
It was certainly worth while!
Service aboard was typically Azamara, laid back, friendly and efficient, sort of feels like home without the work.
As with all R ships you put the shower on rather than getting into it. Otherwise very good.
Make sure that ladies have proper head, arm and leg cover or be prepared to pay extra.
