20 Night Gems Of Arabia & Holy Land (Dubai To Monte Carlo)
Sail Date: May 05, 2016
Ship: Seabourn Sojourn
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 612
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Food, beverages, service and staff is great, entertainment was fine. Although there are more amazing gems in Arabia, itenarary lacks suitable ports. Excursions are good, except for Doha Qatar, there is nothing to see, no need to even stop there. Seabourn made sure, most of guest spent serious money to acquire Visa even before boarding the ship. In our case, it was close to $ 600. Muscat and Salalah are just so so. Monte Carlo was messed up by Formula one races. As Rome was not built in a day, It is even foolish to try to have reasonable attempt to see anything in four and half hours. They should have two stops in Italy.  And two day excursion  with overnight stay as it is available in Israel.  

I will recommend Seabourn, even though quality of services were less than advertised in their brochure.

Ship Tip

Avoid this particular itenarary, until Seabourn is able to readjust ports of call and time they allow at each port, particularly at Rome. If anyone still like to go, then disembark in Rome and spend some time there.
