Fascinating cultural heritage, spectacular architecture, stunning beaches and sensational shopping opportunities make a cruise along our own shores among the most fabulous cruise destinations anywhere on the planet.
Many of the world’s leading cruise lines feature areas of the Middle East in their itineraries meaning you can choose from a wide selection of local cruises departing from Dubai. And with the exceptional service, fine dining and high-quality entertainment you’ll enjoy on your cruise ship there really is no better way of exploring your own locality.
Take your pick from the glittering gulf ports of Abu Dhabi and Bahrain where marvellously ornate mosques are set side by side with magnificent, modern hotel complexes and absolutely amazing shopping malls. Or there’s the exotic ambience of Oman's capital, Muscat, a real melting pot of cultures with influences from Arabic, African and Asian civilisations. Other cruise itineraries in the region bring you to the exciting tombs of Egypt’s pharaohs and the breathtaking coastal landscapes of Lebanon. Perhaps your cruise will include a voyage through the Suez Canal when you’ll certainly want to be on deck to witness the once in a lifetime experience of appearing to sail right through arid desert as you progress to the Red Sea.
