United Arab Emirates Cruises

The United Arab Emirates, also known as the UAE, is a glittering destination, full of top class hotels, restaurants and huge shopping malls. 

Of course, the area is particularly famous for Dubai, a city that definitely has the ‘wow factor’, with its huge range of entertainment options. 

A true mysterious Arabian experience greets visitors here, with stunning beaches on offer, as well as action-packed desert adventures. 

 Famed for its oil production, the UAE is a cultural place to visit, and the influence of tourism has made it an accessible and wonderful part of the world to explore, especially for those who choose to cruise to the United Arab Emirates, rather than opting for a land break.

Highlights

A city of dreams

Without a doubt, Dubai is an amazing place to visit. If you’ve ever dreamed of a city with more money than you can imagine, then this is it. You’ll see hotels soaring into the sky, some of the biggest shopping malls you’ve ever set your eyes on and restaurants packed with Michelin stars. Of course, aside from all of this you have some ancient, cultural things to see and experience, such as the Old Town, Saeed Al Maktoum House and the Grand Mosque.  

Abu Dhabi is the second biggest city in the UAE, where the latest technology, shops and fads exist alongside ancient old traditions. From the cruise terminal you can easily reach the shopping downtown, thanks to a free shuttle heading to Mercato Mall or City Center Drive. You must check out a souk while you’re here too, as well as one of the many gold shops the city is famous for. 

Excursions

If you fancy something a bit more energetic, try heading out on an excursion into the desert for a spot of dune bashing. Or if you like your exercise indoors, you can even ski in the middle of this desert kingdom, at Ski Dubai. 

 

Landscapes

Russian food may not be a cuisine that’s famed the world over but that makes it all the more intriguing for the food lover. 

Cruises to the United Arab Emirates show diverse landscapes. Dubai in particular is a city that seems to pop up out of the desert, giving you plentiful choices for action and adventure, as well as city life. 

The city is famous for its iconic skyscrapers, architectural wonders and the world-famous Atlantis hotel, which is formed in the shape of a palm tree, which you can see from an aerial view. To stay here is a wonder, but to simply see it is a must-do too. 

The natural desert landscapes, complete with rich red sand, lead down to some of the most eye-wateringly beautiful beaches you will set your eyes on. 

Cruise to Khor al Fakkan and you’ll be surrounded by the breathtaking Hajar Mountains. Frame one of the white-sand beaches in the foreground and you’ll have yourself a stunning photo to show your friends back at home.
