Dubai Cruises - There more to Dubai than Sun, Shopping and Hotels

Just mention of the word “DUBAI” conjures up visions of wealth, opulence and extravagant life styles all the result of the discovery of Oil. Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates and probably has more millionaires per square mile than anywhere else in the world.

What to see on Dubai Cruises?

Some of the finest modern shopping, architecture and luxury attractions are to be found in modern Dubai, sitting right alongside 5,000 years of culture and history, making this rich Emirate one of the most fascinating and magnificent destinations available to today’s holidaymakers.

Dubai is famous for luxury, upscale shopping and streets packed with designer clothes and opulence. With more millionaires per square mile than anywhere else on earth, Dubai is easily amongst the most fascinating and magnificent destinations in the world. Muscat, the capital city, is surrounded by stunningly beautiful arid hills, which are rich in iron ore and scattered with unique volcanic rock, creating moonscape-like vistas. Museums, mosques and breathtaking architecture await visitors to Muscat.

Another port of call for Dubai cruises is beautiful, luxurious Abu Dhabi. With superb modern architecture, museums, heritage centres and some of the most attractive and historically significant sites in the Emirates, Abu Dhabi is not to be missed.

To the east, along theGulf of Oman , can be found the oldest mosque in the Arab world, as well as one of the newest and most beautiful shopping malls in the entire world; Fujairah is a destination known for its entertainment and delights. Visitors can indulge themselves in some serious shopping, explore museums and other culturally significant sites and discover history and modern luxury, while spending time in this stunning port of call.

Pearls and oil seem disparate, but they come together as comfortably as modern design and 5,000 years of history and culture in Bahrain. Home to the Bahrain International F1 Grand Prix, the city is alive with culture, excitement and entertainment. Bahrain city centre attracts over 8 million visitors per year. Filled with museums and other culturally significant sites, Bahrain is a true mixture of old and new and is commonly referred to as being an “excellent introduction to the Persian Gulf.”

Dubai cruises would not be complete without a stop in Egypt’s famous port of Alexandria. Mild weather and magnificent attractions, such as Pompey’s Pillar, a 30-metre tall granite column, make Alexandria an essential stop on any cruise. Culture and modern comforts coexist in this splendid city. Guided tours are available to ensure visitors make the most of their time while the ship is in port.

Egypt’s famous Sharm El Sheikh resort is perhaps best known for being one of the most beautiful and accessible ports of call in the world. Water sports, such as surfing, skiing, snorkelling, bathing and diving are all popular activities. For those who prefer land rather than water, the shopping is superb and a little cultural exploration is not to be missed. Museums and shopping centres are only the beginning of Sharm El Sheikh’s multitude of brilliant attractions. Intrepid holidaymakers can explore the area on horseback or by taking a camel ride.

The range of flexible and affordable travel packages available mean that Dubai is one of the most accessible destinations recommended by Adore cruises. There is a package for every budget and a trip to suit any style or desire. No matter what your interest, comfort level or tastes, there is sure to be something for everyone when cruising to Dubai.
