We arrived here at the Premier Inn Dubai airport at 2am. Great flight with Qantas 380.

This is a perfect hotel for its purpose. We've just had a cup of coffee at the reception lobby Costa Coffee, now waiting for our lift to the Al Maha where we'll met up with Pam and Jim.

Looking forward to 3 days of luxury and fun.

See you all on Friday.

"Burj day" was a success! Best table for high tea at the Burj al Arab then best table for dinner and fountain show at Atmosphere on the 123rd floor of Burj Khalifa.
Not bad for my first 24 hours!

Made it to Paris. Easiest connection ever as we went from 2 E M hall to 2 E L hall; no immigration. Nice lounge. Boarding soon for Dubai. See everyone in a couple of days.

Any Regent ship will do....
We are in Dubai! What a beautiful city. Flights were ATL to CDG to Dubai and easy, probably the easiest connections we have ever had. When we arrived late last night the immigration lines were long, but one gentleman looked at my passport and sent us around all the lines to a counter behind a drape, our passports were stamped and we were on our way. We were in our pjs in our hotel room in about an hour from touchdown! Today we are at the Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah and it is wonderful. Marc and I are relaxing, catching up on emails and adjusting to the time change. Life is wonderful! Sort of wished we had set up a dinner for tonight with everyone like before other cruises, but as we will have 30 days together, I suppose we can wait to see everyone until tomorrow.

I LOVE flying... I've been to almost as many places as my luggage

We added some new stamps to our passports today by traveling through several of the Emirates and into the Musandam peninsula of Oman. Jawdropping gorgeous scenery, dolphins and pretty nice snorkeling. It was a very long day but worth it.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow (and finally unpacking)!!

We flew Qatar for the first time. Seat was great, lie flat and adjusted in every possible way. Food still airplane food but better tha BA first class. Lovely flight attendants. The lounge here in Doha is amazing. Huge with great food options. We ate from a menu and shared a mushroom and chicken pasta and we both had salmon with vegetables. Ken indulged in a New Zealand wine he really liked. In a less formal area the lounge had sandwiches made to order from a large variety of ingredients and would make hot sandwiches if requested. Plus all the salads and desert to go with that. The best lounge I have ever experienced. We are in the quiet area a private room about 20ft by 12ft total privacy. Ken is taking a nap and I am playing on my iPad. Plus none of those sky high taxes for going through London. I think Qatar is my first choice in the future. Stunning airport too, sparkling new and seems like there are no people here. Pretty happy with this trip.
