Having read so many negative reviews, we were very sceptical & even contemplated cancelling before sailing. Thank goodness we didn't. We have been on 13 cruises with different companies and this cruise was by far the best.
Mediterranea was scrupulously clean, the service in main dining room (Jayson) , bars (Little John, Chai) very attentive and prompt (after 1st day, your preferred drink brought to you).
Our cabin 8131 was kept clean & our request for ice automatically delivered each day.
Very clean & spacious. Ample packing space & good sized ar fridge. Room service (morning coffee) prompt
Independent travel & used Big Bus Tours, which took you to all the top sites. Grand Mosque amazing
Independent travel. Took Big Bus Tours, covering all the top sites. Burj Khalifa a must
Unfortunately the local guide Malik did not have a very good command of the english language, so information was rather scant, but the other guide who was Spanish helped out.
Been here before, so just did shopping & had serioudly good Baclava at the waterfront. Prices cheaper in Greece than Italy
