Relaxing cruise

We chose this cruise because of the interesting stops and the fact that the weather in the middle-east is much better than elsewhere, at this time of year. It also offered good value for money, as Emirates flights ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary as we had never been to the gulf area before. We first flew to Delhi to see our family there, then flew to Dubai for 5 days prior to cruising which was an eye opener. We were ...

Some Things Need Change

Second time on this ship, it is a older and smaller ship.

The itinerary is what I want and the price is right. We enjoyed the following ports : Petra, Muscat, Ashdod ( Dead Sea ), Haifa ( Bahai garden ) and the passing of Suez cannel. The food is above average. The service ...

A fantastic week!

It’s such a shame that this ship is getting so many negative reviews, were we on the same ship!? IMO a lot of it is down to lack of research - this is not a big ship like oasis of the seas! We were on it last year ...

We had not taken a cruise with RCI in several years and although we were a bit disappointed in how everything seemed to have gone down a notch (except the service of many of the crew), we still did have a fun time ...
