Review SummaryFood was delicious and plentiful. Room was a comfortable size. Staff was friendly, helpful and gracious. Our dining room staff was personable and fun. The talks on the areas we visited (11:00 am) were adequate but, in my opinion, weak. Loved the jazz trio - great for dancing. I appreciated the announcements describing areas we were passing or points of interest. Announcements through the pirate zone were excellent. I liked the ability to not participate in the formal nights. No compensation was made for eliminating a major stop at Luxor and the excursion offered as a replacement was expensive. We had to miss the Suez Canal and nothing was offered as a substitute. I understand the difficulty of offering a substitute but felt like we didn't get what we paid for in addition to paying extra for being able to go to Luxor.

Pros: I liked the diversity of the places we visited. Dubai was cutting edge contemporary alongside the very traditional souqs and architecture. Learning about the Muslim culture was an added perk.
Cons: I didn't like that the itinerary was changed at the last minute. We were on this cruise because our cruise to New Zealand had been canceled by Celebrity within a week of our departure date. I'm beginning to feel jerked around by cruise companies. Luxor - major attractionand, resort - poor substit
