Day 1: Dubai

Flying into Dubai, you'll get a little taste of the glamour that awaits here before you board the MSC Virtuosa, an exclusive haven of refinement. Prepare to embark on your seven-day cruise around the UAE's gems over dinner, enjoying your premium drinks package as you do so. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 2: Abu Dhabi

Your first stop on this whirlwind tour is Abu Dhabi. Home to the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, you'll also find desert and culinary adventures aplenty here, too. Recently turned into a museum, the city's oldest and all-white building 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 9pm. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 3: Sir Bani Yas Island

With the ship 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 5pm, the ship departs. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 4: At sea

Today you'll be cruising along on your way to Manama, so perhaps spend the day on board making the most of the luxe facilities, swimming, or pampering yourself in the spa. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 5: Dammam, Saudi Arabia

The birthplace of America's oil partnership with Saudi Arabia, Dammam has a distinctly Westernised edge to it, thanks to its sprawling suburbs and grid-like geography. However, the city retains its cultural identity through its coveted cuisine: pungent aromas and fragrant spices characterise the dishes here, so make sure to feast on manzalah, ma'asoob and bukhari before boarding back on at 6pm. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 6: Doha, Qatar

Once little more than a fishing village, Qatar’s capital and largest city has emerged to become one of the most treasured cities throughout the Middle East. A highlight of any trip here is a visit to the Souq Waqif, a labyrinthine area selling everything from spices and gold to rugs and falcons. There’s also the famous Museum of Islamic Arts, housing the largest collection of Islamic art anywhere on Earth. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 7: Dubai

You arrive back in shimmering Dubai in the morning, 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. You’ll spend a final night on board your glamorous ship, before gearing up for two days of Grand Prix excitement. (Meals: all-inclusive)

Day 8: Grand Prix Qualifying Day, Abu Dhabi

An electrifying experience at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Qualifying Day awaits: your Grandstand tickets will allow you to see the adrenaline-fuelled races on the Yas Marina circuit, a world-class track home to Formula 1’s only twilight race. As well as watching world-class racers, you'll have access to the F1 Fanzone, with its various food trucks, live entertainment and beer stalls. For the next two nights, you'll be staying at the five-star Corniche Hotel Abu Dhabi. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 9: Grand Prix Race Day, Abu Dhabi

The big day has arrived: the Grand Prix Final - the epic season finale at the end of which you'll watch the champion being crowned. Cheer alongside the rest of the crowd as the competitors roar around the track, racing to a backdrop of yacht-filled marinas and an illuminated skyline. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 10: Abu Dhabi - Dubai

Sadly, it's time to wave goodbye to the Emirates and catch your transfer back to the airport in Dubai, where your epic adventure ends.
