Blend an indulgent five-star Dubai stay with an eye-opening, full-board cruise to Doha, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi - includes all travel

Day 1: UK - Dubai, UAE

On arrival in glittering Dubai, you’ll be transferred to the five-star Dusit Thani Dubai, where you can relax for the rest of the day and get to grips with your luxe and central city base. Overnight in Dubai.

Day 2: Dubai, UAE

You'll lap up some more time at leisure today. Relax by the temperature-controlled rooftop pool, ascend to the top of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, or head out into the city to spend at the souks and malls. Overnight in Dubai.

Day 3: Dubai, UAE

It’s time to settle into the plush Jewel of the Seas cruise ship. After boarding, spend time getting acquainted with the vessel and its myriad entertainment hotspots, restaurants and bars. At 5pm, the grand dame sets sail. Night on board. (Meals: dinner)

Day 4: At sea

Today you'll be cruising along on your way to Doha, so perhaps spend the day on board rock climbing, swimming, or pampering yourself in the spa. Night on board. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 5: Doha, Qatar

You'll slide into Qatar's capital first thing in the morning at 8am, giving you plenty of time to explore the city. This blooming forward-thinking metropolis offers the architecturally striking Museum of Islamic Art to explore, trips on a traditional dhow boat, plus all the restaurants, shops and luxury of The Pearl-Qatar artificial island. At 6pm, you'll depart Doha. Night on board. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 6: Bahrain

Your next port of call is Bahrain. Scratch the surface of the food and arty scene in the Adliya neighbourhood, check out the waterfront Bahrain National Museum, and take in the graceful and vast Al Fateh Mosque. At 6pm, the ship departs Bahrain. Night on board. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 7: Sir Bani Yas Island, UAE

With the shop docking at 8am, you'll have ample time to spot Sir Bani Yas Island's hoards of cheetah, gazelle and Arabian oryx at the Arabian Wildlife Park, and this is most fun on a 4x4. Elsewhere, ruins of a church, monastery and courtyard houses dating from the 7th and 8th centuries reveal the UAE's only known ancient Christian site. At 6pm, the ship departs. Night on board. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 8: Abu Dhabi, UAE

An Abu Dhabi must-visit is the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and desert and culinary adventures are aplenty too. Recently turned into a museum, the city's oldest and all-white building of Qasr Al Hosn makes an interesting history-rich visit. Squeeze in time for essential shopping in the city too if you can, before the ship sets sail at 8pm. Night on board. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 9: Dubai, UAE

You arrive back in shimmering Dubai today, ready for a second bout of glitzy city life. The day is yours to shape as you see fit, maybe delving into the historic Al Fahidi district to wonder at old buildings and buy vibrant textiles in the souk, or hit the Palm Jumeirah's DJ-dotted beach clubs. Night on board. (Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Day 10: Dubai, UAE

You'll be leaving your luxury vessel today and shipping your romantic Middle Eastern cruise memories with you back to the UK.
