Dubai & Emirates

The calm, warm waters of the Arabian Gulf have traditionally been the home of ancient Arab dhows and vast merchant ships, plying between its oil rich nations and the rest of the world. It is more recently that there have been regular cruises within the area. Culture and history are the pride of the Gulf States and there's much to see in each of the popular ports of call.

Dubai is the main turnaround port and ships often offer overnight stays in this city. This buoyant and progressive city, like its neighbours, is relatively crime free, spotlessly clean and home to some of the world's finest shopping opportunities. The warm weather of the Gulf region provides ideal cruising conditions on calm seas from December until April and many people find the opportunity to escape the British winter for a couple of weeks too good to miss. Linking a one week cruise with a week at a five-star hotel in Dubai is not unusual.

Dune safaris, mountain trips and dolphin watching are also on the agenda as well as cultural trips which offer an insight into an area that is fairly new to tourism.
