How reliable is Waze (or Google Maps) in Dubai? I use TMobile, who told me that I'll have free unlimited data, but it will be 2g-3g. Any data points on if this should be adequate, or if I should download UAE maps to my Garmin Nuvi and take it? My itinerary also includes Al Maha, which is somewhat in the middle of nowhere, if that's relevant to coverage issues.
Waze is very reliable just be very careful with the speed limit as there a cameras about very mile or so.
Al Maha has great cell coverage.

Also, if anyone has done Ski Dubai, does the rental clothing they give you suffice to keep you warm while skiing, or should I plan to bring additional layers of my own? It feels weird to pack ski attire when the outdoor temperature is over 90, but if the stuff they give you isn't enough, then I'll bring my own so I can enjoy the experience.
The clothing they provide is very thin. I would suggest to bring a sweatshirt. Itís 24 degrees in there

A bit ridiculous in my opinion but the Ritz charges $25 each for a fridge and microwave per day in addition to there already steep resort fees at $85 a night. They also charge around $36 plus service per person per meal to heat up food.
Just say you need the fridge for medication and they will give it for free

any friday night meals in aventura (by turnberry) besides Chabad? surprised none of the restaurants seem to advertise friday night meals.
There arenít any restaurants walking distance from turnberry. You can buy takeout from kosher kingdom and they rent hotplates there too

Why does my St Regis Maldives reservation show $1,400 in taxes no? Booking did not show previously, and  confirmation email makes no mention of it either.
It says $1390 in my reservations. Imo itís for the sea plane transfer which is exactly $695x2
