Reach underwater world in Musandam

Crociera molto sportiva (3 immersioni al giorno - alle 7, 11 e 15 più l'eventuale notturna alle 19). Paesaggio ricco di scogliere - deserto roccioso - a picco sul mare, fondali ricchi di flora e tantissimi pesci. Ottimo e abbondantissimo cibo, servizio impeccabile. Cabine piuttosto sacrificate e scomode (unica nota negativa).
