Middle East Ports

Aqaba, Jordan

The fact that Aqaba is Jordan’s only coastal city makes it a popular port of call on many a Middle Eastern luxury voyage. It’s renowned as well for its warm climate and bountiful marine life, which make it a popular resort with visitors and locals alike.

If you’re in search of an active excursion on your Middle East cruise, Aqaba is perfect for both Scuba and surf-lovers, while for those wishing to take things a little more easily, the Turkish Bath, which dates back to 306AD, is a popular choice. Those wishing to immerse themselves in the region’s history and cinematic pedigree can also embark on excursions to the lost city of Petra and the stunning valley of Wadi Rum.

Haifa, Israel

One of Israel’s largest cities and a busy seaport, Haifa is a popular destination for many a luxury cruise which incorporates the Middle East in its itinerary. Haifa has a long history and much of its development through the ages can be explored during your time in the city.

The beautiful Baha’i Gardens are considered a must-see by many who have visited the city and indeed they, and their focal point, the World Centre, are a sight to behold. The Cave of Elijah is another popular place of tourist pilgrimage, while Dado Beach is the go-to place for sun-worshippers of all ages.

Muscat, Oman

Port Qaboos is a key port on a number of Middle East itineraries, being that it is the largest port in Muscat – the capital of Oman. Muscat, often called ‘the walled city’ offers much in the way of authentic and historic Middle Eastern feel.

One of the most awe-inspiring religious buildings you could ever hope to see on a cruise, the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is Muscat’s most popular tourist attraction and its breath-taking interior must be seen to be believed. A more modern structure but one in keeping with its architectural surroundings is the Royal Opera House – another key tourist site.
