Gaze up at the towering Dubai skyscrapers and cruise in style through the glamorous UAE, with stops in Abu Dhabi and more - includes all travel and a full board cruise with premium drinks package


Your first stop on this city and cruise escape is the opulent cosmopolitan city of Dubai, where you’ll stay in the city’s oldest neighbourhood, Deira, on the edge of Dubai Creek with its soaring skyscrapers and the gigantic malls. Port Saeed, where your hotel sits, was paramount to Dubai’s trading history and makes for an interesting, more authentic stay.

You'll set out on a series of incredible excursions during your time here, including a climb up to the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifah, the world’s tallest building, and a desert safari with dune bashing and barbecue dinner. In your free time, soak up all the glitz and glam Dubai has to offer, from the world-famous restaurants and beaches of the Palm Jumeirah to the world-class shopping spread across the city. Those who want a smidge more culture might enjoy the Saruq Al-Hadid Archaeological Museum or Bait Al Banat Women’s Museum.

UAE Cruise

You'll then board the all-inclusive cruiser MSC Lirica for an elite cruise that takes you from Dubai, around the UAE, back to Dubai.

Day 1: Dubai

Embark onto your cruise ship and settle in - you’ll set sail from Dubai late in the evening. (Meals: full board with premium drinks)

Day 2: Dubai - Abu Dhabi

Depart Dubai for the glimmering Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi, where you might opt for a city tour, or ramp up the excitement at the vast Ferrari World Theme Park (all mentioned excursions are chargeable). (Meals: full board with premium drinks)

Day 3: Abu Dhabi - Sir Bani Yas Island

The landscape then changes dramatically on arrival at the serene Sir Bani Yas Island, where cheetahs, gazelles and giraffes roam the large nature reserve. You can opt to kayak the mangroves or head off on a 4x4 safari if you feel the pull of the wild, before a day at sea. (Meals: full board with premium drinks)

Day 4: At sea

You’ll then spend a day at sea, basking in your ship’s myriad facilities. (Meals: full board with premium drinks)

Day 5: Muscat, Oman

Oman's historical capital of Muscat is a fascinating place, where mod skyscrapers mix with ancient monuments. Be sure to visit the marble-clad Sultan Qaboos Mosque, an endlessly impressive sight. (Meals: full board with premium drinks)

Day 6: Dubai

Finally, it's time to dock at Dubai once more, where age-old souks rub shoulders with shimmering look-at-me skyscrapers. You’ll arrive here mid-afternoon, then spend a final night onboard the ship. (Meals: full board with premium drinks)

Day 7: Dubai - UK

Disembark this morning and head back to the airport for your flight home. (Meals: breakfast)

What is a deposit?

We've added deposit-only sales to enable our members to get early-bird access to more amazing holidays, and because we know that planning and paying for a holiday can take time.
