Cruise to Dubai, a country of contrasts

Stunning and sophisticated, opulent and affluent…

A bustling, fun-filled city and a popular tourist destination

Dubai is one of the world’s most dazzling destinations, a city-state that draws travellers for its heady mix of shopping…tempered with heritage, tradition and culture. As your luxury MSC liner pulls into Dubai City, cruise passengers are greeted with a modern skyscraper skyline and the sight of the famous ‘sail-boat’ shaped, seven-starred Burj Al Arab hotel on its own island, off the coast. The largest of the seven United Arab Emirates, Dubai is located on the north east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. To the southwest, Dubai is a neighbour to Saudi Arabia and to Oman in the northeast.

Dubai enjoys year round sunshine, with hot summer months and a peak tourist season lasting from December to March. The currency in Dubai is the Dirham, and holidaymakers will be eager to leave their cruise ship, to come ashore and spend in this shopping paradise! (Dubai even has an annual festival dedicated to this art form in the Dubai Shopping Festival – DSF - in February).

Take home a souvenir of your Dubai vacation in the form of authentic local goods such as gold, quality fresh spices, fabrics, textiles and intricate jewellery boxes. Dubai has a host of attractions for travellers and our Dubai excursion packages represent the best deals on all the sights, and are often the quickest, most convenient and comfortable way to get to know this state. Dubai City itself is a major draw, but head inland and discover the country’s other delights, such as a desert safari or Bedouin adventure, not to mention the stunning beaches, water parks, and countless sights.

These structures were designed to cool the buildings in the days before air conditioning.
