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


Your first stop on this city and cruise escape is the opulent cosmopolitan city of Dubai, where you’ll stay in the luxurious Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights, right in the heart of Downtown Dubai with its soaring skyscrapers and the gigantic Dubai Mall, and sitting proud next to the Dubai Creek (as the name suggests).

Spend your time soaking 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 brand new MSC Bellissima for an elite cruise that takes you from Dubai, around the UAE, back to Dubai. Please note that Days 1 - 4 and Day 7 are the same itinerary for all three possible itineraries, however Days 5 - 6 are different dependent on dates you choose. Please see below for further details:

Day 1: Dubai

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

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)

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)

Day 4: At sea

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

Day 5 (for itineraries one and three): 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)

Day 5: (for itinerary two): Bahrain

Boasting its own F1 Grand Prix as well as azure waters, great bars and restaurants and intriguing monuments, Bahrain is a great spot to enjoy a day of sightseeing. (Meals: full board)

Day 6 (for itineraries one and three): Khasab

With its rugged coast and dolphins, Khasab makes for a great day stop. Visit the portside castle and seafront fort, or spend a day relaxing on the beach. (Meals: full board)

Day 6: (for itinerary two): Doha, Qatar

Qatar's capital city is oozing with flashy shopping malls and traditional souqs; the perfect spot to shop to your heart's content.
