If you want to go on a cruise departing from Dubai, you have many options, depending on your desired itinerary and the length of the trip that you want. You can choose anything from casual to luxurious cruises, differing in length from 2 nights to 30 nights. Famous cruise operators from around the world offer great deals with options that can be customized in order to suit your needs.
If your job does not allow you to be away from the UAE for longer periods of time or you are looking just for a short getaway with your family, you have the option to go on a shorter cruise of a few days along the Arabian Peninsula. You will get to admire the stunning beauty and the amazing constructions of the Emirates, especially of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as well as the mix of medieval heritage and modern architecture of the Sultanate of Oman.
If your time allows you, there is the option to go on a longer cruise, which allows you to enjoy the beauty of India and Singapore, of South Africa or of some of the amazing countries with coastlines on the Mediterranean Sea, such as France, Monte Carlo, Spain or Italy.
Most of the packages offered by the various cruise operators include accommodation, as well as all inclusive dining packages. However, some operators charge extra fees for fine dining options and other services. In the case of most cruise lines, you can choose from different types of state rooms, depending on your budget and needs, from inside cabins or cabins with windows or balcony to luxurious apartments and suites. Also, you have great entertainment options on all of the ships, from casino specific activities to concerts, different shows and trivia contests. Children will not get bored either, with the many pools and slides, game rooms or special shows for them. All in all, cruising is a fun activity for the entire family, offering lots of activities on board, as well as the chance to discover and visit beautiful parts of the world. Cruise operators have great deals for single passengers, for couples or for families travelling with children, for most of their ships. When you choose to go on a specific cruise, you should take into consideration your available time and budget, the itinerary, the dining and entertainment options and the availability of the type of stateroom that you prefer on the specific date.
