I could have skipper any other stop except this one. I was most important for me to visit this bucket list item, Petra, We took a RCCL excursion. 10 long and truly rewarding hours. Our tour guide was knowledgeable both of the geologic and the cultural history of the area. Petra itself did not disappoint. There was a lot of walking (2.5 miles downhill and then the same uphill) which could have stressed the largely elderly cruisers. There were 35 busloads of 45 individuals. Do the math, all of us were amazed. THis came after an exciting 5 days at sea transiting pirate infested waters

We did the Wadi Rum excursion with the Ship. This was really an excellent tour. We loved the environment and had a fantastic ride in the dessert. We visited a bedoeincamp where we received minttea.
