WHY WE RECOMMEND Dubai & Emirates CRUISES

The Emirates are the spectacular, futuristic side of Arabia, and at the centre of these westernised and thoroughly modern tourist hubs is the city of Dubai – a place where planning permission and limitations don’t apply, especially when it comes to options for tourists. Rounding every corner brings you face to face with another glittering luxury hotel, another intriguing tourist attraction, or another gigantic luxury shopping mall.

It seems that everywhere in the glass-lined cities of the Emirates has been tailor-made for tourists. Never mind the opulence and elegance of the hotels, all you need to do is take a cursory stroll along the beachfront of somewhere like Dubai to get a glimpse of how much of tourist paradise this is. Hundreds of bars, restaurants and attractions compete for space on streets overlooked by magnificent skyscrapers, and that’s before you even take into account the white sands of the beaches and burgeoning classic architecture like the Burj Al Arab.

The best cruises to the Emirates will allow plenty of time to spend in port, especially in Dubai, where there is so much to see and do, it is almost impossible to fit everything into your schedule. With extra time to explore, however, you will have time to discover both sides of Dubai, from the bustling, contemporary metropolis to the scenic and spectacular desert landscape that surrounds the city.

Dubai

Dubai can already be mistaken for a movie set featuring a futuristic metropolis, and there are big plans still in the works. In the middle of the desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, there are so many building projects that foreign construction crews vastly outnumber citizens. Everything is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including manmade islands shaped like palm trees and the world’s first underwater hotel. It’s a striking collection of styles, including modern interpretations of Islamic architecture. If the planet’s largest shopping mall doesn’t appeal, traditional souks do still exist, including a gold souk housing over 200 retail shops.

Muscat

An important trading port between East and West since the first century, Muscat's influence once extended as far as East Africa and Zanzibar. While much of the city’s construction is new, it all displays traditional Arabic stylistic elements, creating a handsome and cohesive whole that incorporates a rich history. Two seemingly invincible mountainside forts from the 1500s flank the palace of the sultan, though today they are both museums. A major highlight is the Muttrah Souq, Muscat's oldest market. Colorful and bustling, it is a fascinating place to browse, as well as to bargain for exotic spices, traditional handicrafts, or gold and frankincense.

Doha

Doha is an ancient city in the midst of a modern renaissance as evidenced by stunning new buildings, resorts, shopping malls, and sporting venues emerging from the desert landscape like a futuristic oasis. And these aren’t just your standard bricks and mortar—there is some serious architectural prowess on display, like the Museum of Islamic Art designed by noted architect IM Pei. Head inside to view priceless Islamic art that spans 1,400 years and three continents, not to mention Alain Ducasse’s restaurant, IDAM.

Abu Dhabi

As the capital of the United Arab Emirates and the largest emirate by area, Abu Dhabi is home to the seat of government, the Al Nahyan royal family, and a population of approximately 20% Emirati citizens and 80% expats. But its commitment to local culture and heritage, combined with international influences, is what makes Abu Dhabi an intriguing, exciting, and hospitable mix of new and old.
