    So I wonder if that means that the golf course would be indoors too? That would definetely be a sight!

    A lot of our men and women who serve will be visiting this, no doubt. When our folk go on their WESTPAC's, they stop over in Dubai. I remember my husband going to the waterpark the Wild Walid, so something like this will no doubt make a huge profit with our homesick service members.


    Over the duration of their 6 month cruise, they are there for about 20 days on and off.


    You won't see ME choosing it as a vacation spot, but it's a good idea.
