The Portuguese built Khasab at the beginning of the 17th century at the height of their naval presence in the region. The natural harbor gave shelter from tough seas. Unlike many forts, which were built on high ground for defensive purposes, Khasab was designed as a supply point for dates and water for Portuguese ships sailing through the strait. Today, Khasab is protected from floods by three large dams.

    Don’t book this ship if you like your food. Food was inedible in both buffet & restaurant. All meats were over cooked and burned. Couldn’t cut it or chewed it and spat it out. Hardly any vegetables served. Pepperoni pizza was cut in ten slices with three pieces of pepperoni between the ten slices. Every guest you spoke with was complaining of the standard of food. Tables of eight guest were walking out when they saw the menu which had two fish starters, two mains and one dessert. We were at a table of eight who every night could only eat the soup and that was because we were starving. They do not have sommeliers or bar waiters in restaurant. My husband asked for a vodka and was told no we don’t have any time to go to the bar. He had to go himself. The waiter served you wine but just what was at hand. First time I’ve had red wine served from an ice bucket. Very cold. We when we could got off the ship and ate in the port we were visiting. Cleanliness of ship was not up to standard. Food over floors in buffet with waiters walking round dropped food. Tables wiped with food being swiped onto floor. Hand sanitizers empty. Toilets were filthy with paper on floor and fesues all over bowl. Several of us made an appointment to speak to food & beverage manager in his office. The word got around and there was twenty people at the meeting. We could have filled the theatre. He listened and said very little. No change. Must say though the staff were amazing. Never again.

    We didn't find the ship to our liking. It felt crowded. The amount of passengers seemed to exceed the relaxation areas provided. There is no cinema and the shows weren't very good. It was the same singers, dancers each night performing in different shows. The food wasn't very good either. It was quite bland with not much choice. There is a "sky bar" on the top deck which wasn't utilised. The bar opened at ll p.m. for a disco!! Didn't really suit the age range on the ship. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I don't think the organisation of the ship was their fault.
