We had been to Dubai and Emirates the previous year and this time combined it with a stay at The Atlantis Hotel on The Palm...amazing...we usually cruise with P&O but they had decided not to do that route so we booked with RC...fantastic....balcony cabin was a little tight...no need for the settee.. just could have been arranged a little different without it... bathroom clean and spacious... the ONE thing we really missed was a kettle... but hey we managed.Clean sheets and a tidy room every day... what more do we need. Second sitting dining was great. Staff were just brilliant...we were on a table of 10 and just the 2 young men to look after us... they were brilliant... food was fabulous....lobster tail one evening! The shows were very professional and one in particular was the best i have seen. We missed docking at Sir Bani Yas Island and that was disappointing.. we went the year previous and knew how fab it was... but others that hadn't been were sad but could not be helped.... as mother nature rules the seas. All told this was a great cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it... Thank You

Ship's crew were friendly, helpful and very professional.
