Middle East Cruises

The Middle East is one of those places that is becoming ever more popular with overseas visitors who are looking for a different holiday experience to the norm.

That doesn’t just apply to those seeking to spend some relaxing in a hotel by the beach either, with an ever-increasing number of people booking a cruise that will give them the chance to see the region as its very best.

The main port of call for many cruises around the Middle East is Dubai, which has developed into the go-to destination in the region.

With an air of exclusivity at every turn, you can enjoy top quality shopping, fine dining, enjoy a range of leisure facilities or head into the desert on camel back for an experience that will live a lifetime.

It’s a similar story in oil rich Abu Dhabi, where you can embrace the modern day city but also explore history and culture with a trip to one of the famous forts or mosques.

Should you want to see a more traditional side to the Middle East, then the likes of Muscat in Oman and the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra in Jordan provide the chance to see the ‘old’ that is in stark contrast to the more modern city landscapes.

With plenty of opportunity to see diverse traditions and cultures in a region that is becoming ever more cosmopolitan, the Middle East is a cruise destination that is simply waiting to be explored.
