No visa required for Jordan. If you want to see Petra you can walk from the ship at Aqaba into town, get a hired car with a driver my wife and I saved £63 from not going on the ships tour, By the way I worked all over Jordan for 5 ½ years.

I would suggest that to be certain you ask your cruise agent to ascertain this for you or if you booked direct then ask Silversea. Sorry but their are very few of us who could give you a definite answer. By the way we love Silver Whisper, you are going to have such a great time on her .... Neil.

It has certainly been a busy start to the Summer for me and the calendar has already taken a beating with lots going on over the last couple of weeks. I started the month with 4 nights away with a friend at her apartment in Fuerteventura.
