A good ship. Unfortunately we had to miss an important port of call.

Cruise was interesting due to the itinerary.
Very disappointed at not being able to visit Israel, due to the hostilities in that country.
Attentive crew, good food, happy atmosphere.
There was limited use of the on-deck facilities during the sailing through the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. For security reasons passengers were not allowed on decks or balconies between sunset and sunrise. This certainly meant that the cruise line could not meet the expectations of it's passengers.
Would have liked more commentary when transiting the Suez Canal - we did not know what we were observing. Also much better maps should have been displayed both on the tv channel and in public areas for this type of cruise.
Internet was expensive and ineffective.
Entertainment superb as always.
Disappointed that there were no lectures and presentations telling the history of the ports we were visiting.
