Lovely hotel setting. Out of town but has a shuttle. Rooms OK, but as with many others, has a thick bed cover, no upper sheet. A really silly idea in such a hot climate, requiring the air conditioning on all night!
Calling it a beach is a big misnomer, you can't really get into the water as there are large rocks and coral. I was subsequently told the larger hotels in town have an actual beach with sand.
Breakfast plentiful but strange combinations and presentation.They also do not seem to think sometimes people like milk with their coffee.
Swimming pool was lovely.

We made a rest brief stop in the mountains and one more stop for a panoramic view over the modern city and the entrance to the ancient city of Petra. On the top of one of the mountains above Petra is Aaron’s Shrine, said to be the place where Aaron, the brother of Moses is buried. Petra lies in Musa (Moses) Wadi.

Yesterday we spent time around down town again at the Citadel. It is so old, from roman times. Hard to believe that something has been around for thousands of years ...
... on the brighter side, hopefully they will start to put the giant tv screen on at the back of the ship. :0)
The captain also had a lot to say about our transit through the Suez Canal tomorrow, we are joining a convoy and will be starting the transit at around 7 am, but this may change depending on how everyone feels at the time. We are quite looking forward to going through the Suez Canal, but of ...
... the shore that hadn’t probably seen many westerners in a long time. More and more young kids and teens greeted us as they passed by. One young teen stopped and asked: ‘Where are you from?’
Roisin replied: ‘Liverpool’
The teen said: ‘Wycombe?’
I then said ‘No, Liverpool!’
‘Yes,’ the teen continued, ‘Wycombe to Jordan’. The young lady had obviously welcomed me to her country ...
