Situated on the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai is currently enjoying a wave of popularity and it’s easy to see why; in recent years the proceeds made from lucrative oil farming have been used to turn what once was a small coastal trading port into one of the world’s hottest holiday destinations. It's location, coupled with its history as a port state, means that's it's become a highly sought after cruise destination, with many cruise lines now offering itineraries that stop in the port.
We have Dubai cruises to suit all preferences with the likes of MSC, Swan Hellenic and P&O Cruises all regularly visiting Dubai as part of longer Emirates and Middle East cruise itineraries. We also take pleasure in offering luxury Dubai cruises with 6 star luxury cruise lines including Seabourn Cruises and Regent Seven Seas.
Choose one of our Dubai cruises and you’ll soon be in awe – it’s packed full of great restaurants, nightspots, shopping malls and some of the best golf course you’re ever likely to come across. In addition to these, Dubai also has some excellent ‘must-see’ attractions, which include the tallest tower in the world, Burj Khalifa, the Atlantis Waterpark and the Al Mamzar Park beach complex, which offers a great family-orientated alternative to the much busier Jumeirah Beach.
If visiting the state as part of a Dubai cruise, it’s recommended that you take a look at the shore excursions offered by your chosen cruise line. Some lines offer the opportunity to enjoy a helicopter ride over Dubai’s unique shoreline, whereas the more adventurous cruiser might want to indulge in a spot of 4 wheel drive desert safari.
Best time to visit Dubai: Dubai only really has 2 seasons; summer and winter. The summer season begins in April and generally lasts up until mid to late October. During these months it can be extremely hot (around 35-45C) – so if you’re not accustomed to such temperatures, a cruise to Dubai during this period may prove rather uncomfortable.
The winter season runs between November and late February and you’ll find this is the best time for a Dubai cruise. It’s still hot, but the heat will be enjoyable rather than a hindrance in terms of actually getting out and seeing some of the sights.
