Booked by family, they were 11 of us. Great experience for a first time. Staff are welcoming and are always willing to help, but some struggled with English. Stop in Khasaab from Dubai then Muscat, gives you a chance to see Oman, although its very empty and boring. I wish is the cruise stopped at 6am and leaves next day 6am because, a 6am to 6pm is not enough time to see a city. Prices need to be all inclusive. But there is so much extra charges like for internet costing you €62 for 4 days, although you paid for food but if you use anything in your room u get charged up €4 per item. Drinks packages are over €150 including alcohol its even worse. No iron on board you have to pay for laundry service. Spa and massage over €184 for a massage really. The workers look exhausted working 12 hours a day for 8 months is slave work hence why there is rarely any European staff, MSC exploits african and poor asian countries. Overall good experience but i would rather be on all inclusive resort.
