Sounds like an interesting place to visit, not your typical cruise port.

We have arrived home.

It was interesting but not the billed Cruise to Remember as those on the Legend of the Seas made it out to be.

We had an entertainer that suddenly took ill but word has it she had over 400 people walk out of her show prior to Singapore. We saw her last year on the Explorer and she was not that good then.

Food was very hit and miss. We had a lot of hot food arrive very cold. It is pretty bad when everyone sends it back at the table.

Oh yes if you were not Diamond Plus or better you were a nobody.....

Watched one fight in the dinning room on Formal  night where a little Asian Sous Chef had the guy by his Tie and the two groups were punted off the ship at the next port in India.

There was the sand storm going up the Red Sea that we woke up to with sand on the Balcony and chairs and tables. Mini Golf took on a new look with sand traps.

Suez Canal was great! That is a lot of sand out there.

In all it was a good cruise, not a great cruise.

More later.

Thanks for the photos!

Phil

It was an adventure.  Sometimes that's all you can hope for.  CJ

Well said CJ, it was just that.

They were all except Athens were new to us.

Malaysia was much cheaper than we thought and the people amazing.

India, well it is India, no such thing as garbage collection it would appear. Riding the train hanging out the door was an experience both Chris and I did trying to take a photo of each other and not get hit by an oncoming train or for that matter a pole. 10 people die on average in Bombay for just that reason.

Dubai is an amazing place, We didn't scratch the surface.

Headed by Somalia and hearing a freighter was hijacked 18 hours ago ahead of us.

Suez Canal was NOT what we expected and a very pleasant surprise.

Athens we managed to do things we had not thought of but it made the day.

Malta is a must port. The History here is amazing.

So Yes CJ it was an adventure.

Thanks Manuela.
It took some time to put together despite writing the port stuff on the cruise itself.
