Best time to visit the Middle East on a cruise:
Thanks to the humid climate in places such as Abu Dhabi, Oman and Dubai, visiting year-round is always an option if sunshine is what you are looking for during your trip. The humidity is most comfortable between the months of March and May, with July, August and September being very hot indeed. Egypt is most popular in the summer season, however, some cruise lines do call into Egyptian ports much later in the year.
