The emirates is a fantastic destination for a cruise and stay holiday as with so many activities on offer, sights to see and culture to discover, you’ll find yourself wanting more than a day or two to explore it all.
Cities such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi aim to be the biggest and best in the world and each has an ever-growing list of world records to its name, whether it’s the world’s tallest building, fastest rollercoaster or largest indoor snow park. Whilst these cities display a somewhat superficial facade, there is much more to these destinations than fast cars, luxury hotels and designer shopping. Cruisers can still find themselves exploring points of cultural interest like the awe-inspiring Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, traditional bustling souks or even venturing outside the cities to see the surrounding nature in Mangrove National Park which is home to over 60 bird species.
Ports of call such as Muscat, the capital of Oman, offer you a completely different perspective to the towering skyscrapers of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Muscat is a city proud of its heritage and architecture and much of it has been maintained, offering a beautiful traditional setting where the old town is bordered in by rocky terracotta-coloured mountains.
Salalah is another port of call where you can discover fascinating history, including seeing the alleged ruins of a palace once belonging to the Queen of Sheba. Despite lying in the Arabian desert, Salalah enjoys a temperate climate and people flock here for scuba diving and bird watching.
