Here we go again!!

How many more hours do you need when you leave India 2 hours late to get to Dubai?  Apparently another 8 hours!!   Need to ask princess that one! ..... so now our 2pm docking in dubai has been moved to 10pm....  So there goes our Abu Dhabi trip L
***** UPDATE******
Just as I was typing this the captain has just made an announcement that due to a pickup of speed we will now arrive in Dubai at approx 8pm......  also they understand that our delay probably has more to do with the technical issues than weather conditions hence as a good will gesture we will be given $100 onboard credit each...... At least we can now hop off the ship for a couple of hours when we arrive!!

  1. Really enjoying your blog, and the others too. Thanks for taking the time to allow us along too ! Although every time I have a read, I am alarmed that Princess can get this so wrong again, not like its the first world cruise!! You are taking all this with good grace and great humour, as most Aussies would, but I bet there is some grumbling going on. Gday to all the other bloggers, happy sailing Cheers, Kris

  2. We're a bit divided on Abu Dhabi here; Lorraine enjoyed the city tour; I don't think you missed much.

    But, it's a pity you're missing Muscat for Salalah ... although I won't give an opinion on Salalah; it's nearly 20 years since I was there, and it may have changed in the meantime.

    Keep smiling :D
