Jordan is among the most beautiful and welcoming countries to visit in the Middle East region. This country has a lot to offer in terms of wonders and sites. Going about the country by car is one of the most effective ways to get to various sites and locations. The road network is particularly good and fluid, allowing visitors to quickly get to wonderful sites. Car pickup can be easily arranged from Queen Alia International Airport car rental services. Once the short term leasing car in Amman Jordan has been arranged, the region can be leisurely explored.

 

Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is very popular among tourists visiting the region due to its high saline content that allows visitors to float on top of the sea. The mud surrounding the shore line is commonly used in various therapies. The region also offers various archaeological sites, museums and the wonderful Wadi Mujib Nature reserve which is gaining a rising appeal among tourists.

 

City of Petra

You could head towards the south of the country to visit the magnificent ancient city of Petra. This city is a popular tourist destination as it is unique in nature, having been carved out of sandstone. The place is one of the seven wonders of the world and is quite arguably the most popular attraction in Jordan. It has also been given the status of World Heritage by UNESCO in 1985.

Food secrets you need to know on cruise liners

April 8, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

You need to go beyond the brochures and daily newsletters explaining your onboard cruise food experiences. When it comes to food they offer a wide variety and options you can get. Knowing their secrets before going onboard definitely help to improve your cruise experience.

On the first night onboard, it is customary for all cruise liners to offer a buffet at the main dining room. Many opt for this to get a good orientation for food options you can expect during your cruise and wait on lines. However, Celebrity Cruises and many others offer discounts at other restaurants onboard on the first night. Look for alternative mini-buffet open at other smaller venues such as the atrium or the solarium. Also it will be easier to get into other restaurants on that day. Those who are dining at the Steakhouse on Carnival Cruise on the first night of cruise get a bottle of wine free.

Food offerings onboard at the main dining room are not limited to one appetizer, entrée and dessert. You can order as many as you want and combine any way you like. If you like you can get main entrée in appetizer-sized portion too. This is a great way to taste many food offerings.
