Overall experience was very good. Food was good too but could have been more better. Also one more performance could be added besides tanura dance. Staff was polite. Naushad was quite professional and friendly. My parents liked it too.

Dear Nived, Its a good point, many people fight for the upper deck only to realize that they will be very cold 30 minutes into the cruise :) Will look into expanding the desert options. Timur
