Greenslade - Answered a Question by Wood (15 Jun 09 16:38)

Hello, Aqaba is a 1.5 days stopover. Petra is a full day. Dead Sea is a full day. I would recommend PETRA. You do have time to do half day Wadi Rum 4x4, which is great fun. For anybody who does not know, 'Celebration' is identical to 'Spirit'. They belonged to Holland America (many, many years ago). As many have said, most ports are industrial, so you really need to do the ships excusrions, which are expensive but value for money. They are also VERY long days. This itineray is not really for small children on a small ship (little in the fun department). It is also not for those who wish to stay on board and enjoy the 'view'. TAKE A LOOK AT MY CRUISE REVIEW AND PHOTOGRAPHS (31 pictures) BOTH TITLED THOMSON 'SPIRIT' RED SEA MAGIC MARCH 2009 BY GREENSLADE. It will give you an idea what to expect.

After the Petra trip, you need the next day to recover! Up at 5.00am, it is a very full day as well as physical. Unless you are very fit, think twice about going all the way down to the museum. It is quite a climb back up and can be very hot. The bottom line is that there is no time to go to the Dead Sea which is a pity.

Royal Caribbean. Something for...

By Dean Michaelides

Every single year its seems like more and more ships are being released. 3-6 star 300 passengers to 6000 passengers there are hundreds of cruises out there now. My question is can anyone beat Royal Caribbean and do they have a ship for every one?I recently had a training with a Royal Caribbean rep and she advised there aim would be for cruise customers never to look elsewhere when it comes to cruising. A bit like Dubai for Holidays. There idea it to have such a wide range within there fleet f...
