Dubai & The Middle East

A Middle East cruise offers the wonders of Egypt, the warm waters of the Red Sea and the modern cities, ancient fortifications, deserts, oases and beaches of the Persian Gulf. The Red Sea ports give access to beach and diving resorts and to the ancient wonders of Cairo, Luxor and Petra. Going south you enter the Arabian Sea explore the rugged south coast of Oman. Entering the Persian Gulf, cruises will explore the beaches, markets and history of Oman, the Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain.

Egypt & Red Sea

Cruise through the Suez Canal and you enter the Red Sea. Here you will find ports that give you access to the museums and pyramids of Cairo or the spectacular Valley of the Kings at Luxor. From Aqaba, you can reach Jordan's 'Rose-Red' city, Petra, and Lawrence of Arabia's Wadi Rum. Or you can explore the coral reefs in the warm waters of the Red Sea from beachside resorts like Sharm el-Sheikh Beach. 

Persian Gulf

Cruising the Persian Gulf brings you to Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain. Oman offers a spectacular coastline, intriguing markets and ancient fortifications. The Emirates is a union of seven sovereign sheikhdoms including Dubai and Abu Dhabi and boasts world-class shopping, mountains, beaches, deserts, oases, camel racing and Bedouin markets, all packed into a relatively small area.

Arabian Sea

Between the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf is the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea running along the coastline of southern Arabia. On the south coast of Oman, visit Salalah or Mirbat to explore the stony plains, sand dunes and mountains of this wild and rugged country.
