    Discovery 2 sun beds !

    Well done giant man, it is a nightmare with people reserving and in the same places

    Discovery 2 deck space

    You must have been lucky then or on at a different sailing because they were definitely reserved

    Discovery 2 deck space

    You will have to be up early, people 'reserve' the sunbeds at the back and all round the pool. We watched people on the webcam from 7am putting towels out, which then does not leave that much room - this should be policed better

    Can you walk into Georgetown or is there a local bus to hop on and back?
  8. we also got a taxi from the port in Abu Dhabi. He said he would do a 'good' deal £100 to go to the Grand Mosque and then Emirates Palace and then back to port. The problem was he never left our side in the mosque as though he was a guide and as though we were on a tight schedule. So get separate taxis and do not agree to a driver for the day
  9. Are there plenty of hangers in cabins or is it best to take a few of your own, especially if in for 15 nights?

    Burj Khalifa queues

    So can you just have drinks in the At.mosphere lounge? Do you have to book or just say at reception where you want to go?

    Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi

    Do you have to book an afternoon tea or meal in Emirates Palace to be able to go inside the hotel?
  15. Anyone know if you can join up two excursions. Want to do Abu Dhabi city tour but would also like to visit Emirates Palace but not just for photo stop. Difficult to plan when you do not know times. Was wondering whether to make own way back to ship in taxi.
