Dubai is one of the top cruise destinations in the UAE & Middle East offering mesmerising turquoise sea landscapes to its guests. Plenty of travel companies operate cruise tours around the stunning waters of the Arabian Gulf, with a choice of luxurious vessels to select from, including special packages. Putting the safety of guests and crew first, global cruise lines have adopted stringent safety protocols according to the evolution of the pandemic.
Embarking on a cruise in and around Dubai will genuinely be a fascinating experience. The city offers many onshore and even offshore attractions such as Burj Khalifa, The Museum of the Future, Gold Souk, the Palm Island, and more.
Cruises within Dubai
The Dubai Creek offers an excellent setting for an onshore cruise that will let you explore the city's cultural existence mixed with modern marvels. The Creek separates Dubai into two parts: Deira on the north and Bur Dubai to the south, offering great entertainment and fantastic shopping opportunities, especially the delights of the traditional souks.
Cruises around Dubai
Offshore cruises also take place around Dubai because of the phenomenal artificial islands that have been constructed for extreme delight. The Palm Island features the spectacular Atlantis Resort, a very popular hotel worth visiting even if you do not plan to stay there.
