• Dubai Middle Eastern Cruises: Ocean Voyages to Arabian Paradise

  • For those looking for a Dubai vacation getaway, there is nothing better than getting there via a luxury cruise that also visits the neighboring cities of the Middle East. Cruise lines that offer trips that visit or depart from Dubai include the Regent Seven Seas, Costa Cruises, Seabourn, Oceania, and Cunard.

    Many cruises start in Dubai, and make stops in the Mediterranean, including the cities of Africa, Greece, and the Middle East. Others originate in Greece or Turkey and can last anywhere from three days to three months depending on personal preference. Many of the cruise lines offer excellent packages in partnership with the finest Dubai five-star hotels. From the Costa Cruise Line, which is known for its Italian style and cuisine, the Costa Classica and the Costa Victoria are the two ships offering Dubai voyages.

  • Dubai Luxury Cruises to all Ports of the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf

  • The Costa Classica has a modern yet elegant look and feel that accommodates over 1300 guests. It has eleven decks with each one named after an Italian city, such as Geneva, Cortina, and Portofino. It hosts six bars and two restaurants, and the amenities offered are magnificent. Some of these amazing services include a gymnasium, where you can work off the scrumptious dinner you just had; a theatre to kick back and enjoy the show; a spa for ultimate relaxation and aromatherapy; a health bar for that healthy and delicious fruit smoothie; and an internet café to check e-mail and send your loved ones pictures of your fabulous Dubai vacation. For the young children and teenagers, a youth center gets them involved in fun activities, including an arcade for the kids and kids at heart to play some games.

    For a more luxurious cruise, the Costa Victoria may be the one for you. Home to eight bars and six restaurants, this floating city comfortably provides plenty of space for over 2300 guests. Each of the eleven decks is named after Italian operas, such as Boheme, Carmen, and Traviatta.

    Just like the Classica, the Victoria is outfitted with a gym, internet café, and a spa, but this ship has so much more to offer the discriminating traveler. You and your fiancée may want to celebrate your wedding at the chapel, or relax in one of many indoor and outdoor swimming pools. You can even take a jog around the jogging track, or treat yourself to a well-deserved makeover at the beauty salon.
  • The Dubai Dhow Cruise and More Local Adventures

  • If you're looking for something more within your budget, but just as unforgettable, the dinner cruises are also a fun way to relax and enjoy the nighttime scenery of the Dubai Creek while relishing the Arabian cuisine. Guests can choose from a traditional or luxury style cruise.

    The Dhow Cruise at Dubai Creek, for example, is one of the affordable two-hour Middle Eastern cruises where guests can enjoy seeing for themselves the newest, the biggest, the most unusual, and the tallest buildings in the world today. Some well-known sites to enjoy on the cruise are the National Bank of Dubai, the house of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum, and Dubai Heritage Village.

    Plenty of rich, native food is served and a variety of live performers keeps guests well entertained. This Dubai cruise takes place in a dhow, which is a wooden cabin cruiser, and you will immerse yourself in the tastes, aromas, and sounds of Middle Eastern culture.

    The Bateaux is a more luxurious dinner cruise in Dubai offering a four-course menu as well as a menu a-la-carte. This world-class dinner cruise offers both Eastern and Western cuisine and dancing to music played by the resident DJ. Both of these dinner cruises can be booked for corporate events and are perfect for those who want to experience all that Dubai culture has to offer while enjoying the best of everything.
