Seabourn Encore docked at Aqaba, Jordan’s only coastal town in the Gulf of Aqaba. It’s the gateway to the ancient city of Petra and Wadi Rum desert, known in the film”Lawrence of Arabia”.

According to the ship’s destination desk, 280 guests have taken a tour to Petra and Wadi Rum. Since we’ve been to both places, we decided to take a stroll through the town and had a look at the Souk (market). There isn’t much to do around here except diving and snorkelling

A lot has changed since we were last here many years ago.
