Le Ponant cruise from Muscat to Dubai

Offering a wealth of incredible history from a time when this region was just a series of trading ports, the architectural transformation of the Arabian peninsula is best be viewed from the sea. Starting in Muscat, this 8 day cruise will take you to Fujairah, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Abu Dhabi and give you time to explore the old cities as well as head out into the Arabian desert in a 4x4 to see the magnificent scenery of red dunes of shifting sands, before finishing in the unashamedly modern city of Dubai.

The cruise is on a full board inclusive of all drinks basis from the moment you step on board, and includes sumptuous dining from dinner on the first day to breakfast on the last morning, Captain's welcome cocktail, afternoon tea, 24 hour room service (selected menu) and evening organized entertainment. All your drinks are included whilst on board as well, making this the perfect way to avoid the winter blues! Why not combine this cruise with a stay in Muscat or Dubai and make your holiday one to remember forever. Or perhaps join Le Ponant as she cruises to the Maldives in January and Febraury..the perfect way to get over Christmas!
