I went on this cruise in Jan , you need a fleece or similar but it is not freezing.. we sunbathed & some days were quite warm, there is just a bit of a breeze cropped trousers are fine. Petra is a must ..be warned ..loads of walking !! The 4x4 Wadi Rum trip is great too. It is best not to try & do all the trips as some are very long.. mix and match.. enjoy - we did!! Haze.

We have done most of the trips on offer as we have done the Red Sea cruise 3 times - it's excellent. I think that the main trips are Cairo, Valley of the Kings, Petra and the Dead Sea. All full days with long journeys. If you are full of energy, I think that the first three are a must if you don't think that you will pass that way again!!! It is just a bit of a decision because it is so nice to stay on the ship as well. If I had to choose between them, I suppose that I would choose Cairo and Petra. The Valley of the Kings was a bit confusing for me and all of the treasures are in Cairo anyway. You will need a fleece but do 'layers'. We were frozen at Wadi Rum, very hot at the Valley of the Kings and pleasant everywhere else unless we were out of the sun. The coaches are all air-conditioned so can be quite cool on those too!!! Hope you have a great time - we did. Any other queries .

 As you will be reading this I am away. I’m having a few days away in Poole, Dorset. We travelled down on Tuesday evening and are spending 3 nights here.

Is Cruising Getting Too Hi-Tec?

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

With the announcement of several new ‘innovative’ ‘groundbreaking’ ‘futuristic’ Mega-ships being built and released in 2018-19, I’m beginning to wonder if the cruise-lines are getting a bit ahead of themselves. Employing A-list global architects and designers to create all these new gadgets & gimmicks which promise to be ‘transformational’, ‘industry firsts’ which will ‘erase boundaries’ for the Sophistic...
