    Khasab Oman

    November 5, 2018 in Oman ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Ein kurzer stop in Khasab, bevor wir wieder 4 Tage auf see sind. Auf dem weg zum Supermarkt, da es sonst nix anderes gab, sind wir vielen Ziegen begegned.

    Ziemlich öde und voller Schmuggler dieser Ort. Im Supermarkt angekommen, dachte ich ich wäre in ein anders Land, dieser Markt hatte einfach alles und war mega sauber und einfach nur riesig. Total verrücktRead more

    Had the last laugh

    December 15, 2015 in Oman ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    I spoke to Gisleni the concierge, and told her how disappointed I was at not getting the upgrade, especially as the couple I mentioned to you in the last blog post did get an upgrade, not only did they get the upgrade but they went from an inside cabin on deck 3 to a junior suite on deck 8.
    That's a 4 step upgrade, when you are only supposed to get a one step upgrade.
    Anyway when I told Gisleni about being disappointed especially as I had offered to pay, and she tells me she had recommended that we get the upgrade as we were willing to pay, but she was overruled by the hotel director.
    She also tells me that she has the same opinion as me concerning this particular couple, as they had been rude to her, and even after getting the upgrade they where at guest services complaining about something else and being rude there also.
    The upshot is Gisleni says she will see what she can do and while I was there at her desk made a couple of phone calls and fired off three emails to different people, then tells me to come back later on in the morning.
    To cut a long story a bit shorter, she not only got me an upgrade to a Grand Suite, but got it for free!
    Needless to say Sheila is now a very happy bunny.

    In Khasab

    January 26, 2019 in Oman

    Die Hauptstadt der Provinz Mussandam heißt Khasab. Hauptsehenswürdigkeit ist der super gut sortierte LuLu - Markt, Platz 2 belegt das Fort. Die Bewohner Khasabs arbeiten entweder "um die Ecke" in Dubai oder fischen oder betreuen freundlich und qualifiziert Touristen oder schmuggeln Elektronik.Read more

    We docked at Khasab today but none of us fancied getting off the ship, which was great for me as it gave me the chance of another sleep, to help get over the hangover before the Captains table tonight.....
    Anyway the meal was with the staff captain, Matthias Sebom, who is from Sweden and a really nice guy.
    There were only six guests and funnily enough all of us are from Wigan, there was Barbara and Steve, Maz and Sue, and Sheila and I, so it was easy having conversations with everyone, which made a nice change.
    The food was excellent and the wines top notch as usual, no Chateau de Sainsbury on the captains table, lol.

    And it gets better

    December 16, 2015 in Oman ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    While we where having our usual evening drinks in the lounge last night, Peter the hotel director comes in and comes directly to to Sheila and I and starts chatting, then does no more than ask us to lunch on the next sea day, and said to bring the friends we were chatting to also.
    He tells us to give Gisleni our cabin numbers so that the invitations can be sent.
    So after he left I'm giving Gisleni the cabin numbers when she tells me that Sheila and I are on the list for Captains table later on in the cruise!
    Things are definitely looking up.
