Middle East
Overview
An area renowned for its desert landscapes and the oil rich states of the Gulf, the Middle East is an up and coming cruise destination that has visitors marvelling at the sights, sounds and aromas of this mystical region.

From journeys through the Suez Canal and tours of the ancient architecture of Jordan and Oman to the modern dramatic landscape of the thriving city of Dubai, a cruise around the Middle East allows visitors to sample everything this region has to offer - old and new.

The area combines tradition, culture and eastern beauty with a truly diverse blend of rich cultures, grand architecture and dramatic coastlines. Oman is a breathtaking destination that offers huge expanses of desert, magnificent beaches and impressive mountain ranges. The United Arab Emirates is a mix of western influences and eastern customs. On a cruise to this region you are also likely to visit Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and occasionally even Iran and Yemen.

British winter time is the best time to travel when the temperatures are not unbearably hot.
Background

Ports

Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt
Sharm El Sheikh on the Red Sea is a paradise for shoppers, clubbers and beachgoers alike. With year-round sunshine and long stretches of stunning beaches, this is the perfect place to top up your tan and swim in the sea. For divers, look no further; the Ras Muhammad National Park is teeming with colourful marine life and coral reefs. On dry land, there are some exciting shopping opportunities not to be missed. Visit the Old Market for souvenirs, or head to Na'ama Bay and Soho Square for glamorous boutiques and designer outlets. Enjoy a few hours of water-based fun at Aqua Blue Water Park or indulge in a spot of culture at Al-Mustafa Mosque and The Heavenly Cathedral.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
In the space of a generation Abu Dhabi has managed to transform herself from small fishing village into the thriving metropolis of today.  A dramatic skyline of modern skyscrapers and exquisite hotels provides a contrast with the mosques and bazaars of old that can still be found here.  Take a ride out to Ferrari World, the world’s largest indoor theme park providing thrills and fun for all the family, or why not take a Jeep Safari through the sand dunes surrounding the city.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The world's fastest-growing global city with a vibrancy and a majesty all of its own. You’ll find all kinds of wonderful modern attractions here, including, at 2,722 feet, the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, plus cutting-edge bars and nightclubs, a man made island in the shape of a giant palm tree, and unparalleled shopping opportunities.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Muscat, Oman
Muscat, Oman
Muscat, unlike a lot of her Arabian cousins, has managed to retain a scene of authenticity to the old ways.  Where her more notable cousins have arrived into the 21st century with a skyline dominated by skyscrapers, shopping malls and hotels, Muscat has retained a lot more of her traditions and values of old.  It is this aspect that allows her to captivate guests time and time again.  Sail into the preserved historical waterfront and experience the traditional architecture of this calming seascape, hike through the terracotta coloured mountains or even visit the old town and discover the traditional souk and spice markets.
