Highlights of this cruise:
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Spend your days exploring merchant stalls in the Dubai Gold Souk, and for an experience you’ll have to see to believe, go skiing in the desert at Ski Dubai.
Culture and history await those who travel to Muscat. Shoppers will want to visit the Mutrah Souq to discover a colorful maze of vendors offering everything you could imagine. After, take a stroll along the Corniche to the Mutrah Fort for sweeping city views. And don’t forget the Sulan Qaboos Grand Mosque—the third largest in the world and home to a must-see 600,000 crystal Swarovski chandelier!
