  • Destination: the Middle East

We bought a package from the same Pullmantur company, it included the round air ticket from Madrid, the price was incredible cheap!

From Dubai airport they drove us directly to the cruise port , the check in was very fast , and we had lunch in the ship , At 12.30 pm we had our state rooms ready..The ship is old , but clean and mantained, Our cabin , 1020 ( with balcony) was very good, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom with big shower, everything worked well.

Al the staff was very nice all the time, our cabin maid, the bars and dining rooms too.

In the afteroon We took a courtesy shuttle and went to Dubai mall. We spent the evening there and returned in a cab.

Next day We had a Dubai city tour with shore2shore company, very good !

At 10 pm we departed, and first time in the morning we arrived to Abu Dabhi.

We had another tour with shore2shore excursions, very good too.

In the afternoon we took a cab and went to the royal Palace and the Palm Hotel (within a walking distance) they a a must!

Next day at sea, walking arround the ship, visiting the stores and the bars everything ok, the drinks were free, but if you wanted premium drinks you have to pay .

The shows not too good , I´ve seen better shows in other cruises.

5th day arrived to Oman we took a tour from the ship. Bad ! they took us to the Mosque and to a museum but no explanation at all. The Mosque is INCREDIBLE.

Next day in khor fakkan, We took a tour from the ship, there was nothing really interesting to see (except oil tanks) but our tour guide, Maria, Very good, She explained us during all the tour. We had a great time!

Next day arrived Kashab, We didnt take the ship tour, It was too expensive, but we desembarked and outside we fund a lot of people who offered you the same ship tour for the 3rd part. It was a boat 2 1/2 hour ride to the fiords to watch the dolphins. Very nice !

Next day we arrived to Dubai. it was disembark day. Our plane was scheduled for 11 pm! so the ship let us leave our baggage in the ship, go out or stay at the pool , until 8pm when they drove us to the airport. That part was incredible, because we could visit Dubai one more day, return to the ship and then go to the airport..

The only con was that the last day their accounts computer failed and we all had to make a line at the cashier to check if we didnt hav e any debts!, We spend more than an hour , people was furious!

But overall I had a good experience and thik that for the price I payed it was cvery good! I can´t ask for more.
