It was a Mystery Tour, rather than an Arabian Adventure

The itinerary was changed 3 weeks before we sailed and we were given the option to cancel. However, having made a variety of arrangements (hotels. car park, house-sitters) we decided to stick with it and accept the OBC, although with it being an All Inclusive cruise this wasn't really much use. A week before we travelled we received notification that we would be flying back to East Midlands, ...

Having sailed numerous times with NCL, MSC, RCI and P&O I was more than happy with my recent cruise with Marella especially after reading some of the reviews. Flight, transfer and embarkation to our cabin was the best I have ever encountered, all well planned and trouble free. The ship is smaller than the others I have sailed on but every facility is available. The food was amazing, we ...

So here is my review of my first ever cruise on the Thomson Celebration (Mediterranean Sunrise). Obviously I have nothing to compare it with as I have never sailed before, but I have stayed in dozens of hotels worldwide so I will try to be as honest as I can. Sorry it is so long, there’s so much to say, but I have subtitled each section for ease of reference. * Outbound Flight – We flew early ...

We choose this cruise because of the ports of call, knowing the ship was old but had some very positive reviews. My goodness what a disappointment...total garbage. This ship just does not compare in terms of quality of cabins, food, entertainment and ship facilities to modern ships. If this had been our first cruise we'd never set foot on another cruise ship. The ship vibrates a lot and is not ...

Went on the repostioning cruise sailing from Aqaba Jordan with six days at sea. This was the first repostioning cruise we had been on and was not sure what to expect. But it was a pleasant surprise. The ship we where formalia with, as this was our fourth time on the ship. We had an inside cabin on the third floor. I have athritus in my knee and hips, there are plenty of lifts to use. The cabin ...

This was our second cruise on the Aegean Odyssey. Our first cruise in January 2015 was a bit disappointing, mainly because of problems with discoloured water and some poor shore excursions. However, we decided to give them a second chance based on the itinerary (Aqaba, Jordan to Athens) and our preference for a small ship experience. This time our overall impression was very good. There were ...

We had a group of eight, and all had an excellent trip. Prior to boarding there were tours of Amman sites, Dead Sea, and Petra. For the most part, well done. This is an educational outing, and lecturers were outstanding. Voyages to Antiquity is not a large liner, so travelers looking for many restaurants, entertainment, etc, would do well to book with another line. Some individuals ...

I went on the 'Holy Lands' cruise, March - April 2013. It was fantastically good value and had the most wonderful time! I loved being on the ship, arriving at an exotic port at dawn, a days fabulous sightseeing,all extremely well and comfortably organised. The best local restaurants booked for us at lunchtime, top-flight lecturers informing us on what we were seeing and about the countries we ...

We arrived independently in Aqaba Jordan & as there was not shuttle bus as advertised we made our own way to the ship which caused some consternation with the Port Security. Anyway they threw our suitcases in the back of their ute & took them to the ship.1. The waiters,cooks, bar & housekeeping staff were absolutely wonderful, bright, forever cheerful & lots of fun.2. Our outside B24 cabin with 2 ...
