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

This was the reasont o book this cruise and it was amazing. We went to Petra with a middle-size bus, by the local tourist office. It was well organized, the driving time was 2 hour there and two hours back, we had almost 4 hour there - it is enough to decide we have to come back :-)

Booked a ship tour with MSC to wadi rum.. Fantastic! Bedouins were so helpful and friendly and drive very safe in 4x4 with my elderly mum in the back. We didn’t want to leave! Stunning for pictures without crowds or too many tourists blocking your view and experience. Highly recommend!

If you go here Petra is a must-see. Since we did that last time, we did a sunset tour of Wadi Rum which was totally beautiful. Think Lawrence of Arabia (and other movies).
