  1. Rowse, thanks for sharing your trip! I started reading just to see how you liked the Jewel because I'll be on her next month. (Happy to read she exceeded expectations!) But I kept reading because you're such an engaging storyteller! Good work. Happy cruising!
  2. Anne, thanks a million for the helpful links. Decisions, decisions!
  3. Hi, Anne, wow, thank you for all of your contributions to this forum. What a bonus for all of us traveling to the UAE! I have one for ya. I'm making my first visit over the winter holidays (in part, via Royal Caribbean's 7-night RT out of Dubai hitting various area ports). I read about this festival--it gets rave reviews for cultural experience. But there's not a lot of detailed information to be found online. I posted the question below to the UAE forum on the usual travel research site (I haven't been on CC in a while, so don't know if I can say the name!), but no one's answered. I do have a fair price quote on a car and guide to make the trip from Abu Dhabi (and the guide outfitter also promised to research, but nothing yet). So I'm just trying to decide whether to commit! Do you happen to have any scoop? Thanks in advance for any information you know or any "very local" online resource you might suggest as possible fertile ground for details. I will be visiting for the first time in late December 2019. The best day for me to go to the Al Dhafra Festival is Sunday, December 28, 2019. The website doesn't show the program. See turathuna.ae/en/event/al-dhafra-festival Can anyone share program information for that day? Or at least offer general advice about what to expect. Is there a Mazayna every day of the festival, and if so, at what time?
