Take a look at our Dubai and Emirates cruises here – or keep reading to find out more.
Why cruise to the Middle East?
Once a tiny fishing village, Dubai has grown exponentially over the last few decades to become one of the wealthiest states in the world. And it shows – the city is host to some breathtaking modern architecture, immaculately sculpted gardens and beautiful skylines, especially at night. As you’d expect, the restaurants and hotels are also top class, and cater for a range of budgets.
Dubai is also legendary for its shopping – including jewellery offered at much lower prices than you’d find at home (get ready to haggle!). And it also claims to be the sports capital of the Middle East, hosting a number of world class sporting events. Whatever you’re into, you’re sure to find it here.
Of course, you’ll get to visit many more regions of the Middle East, and indeed the rest of the world, on your cruise. Our Middle East cruise deals typically last at least a month, and stop off at a large number of some of the world’s most famous tourist destinations.
