Cruise on board Oceana from Dubai to Dubai for 22 nights.

This is a fascinating festive exploration of discovery. Fly to Dubai and begin your adventure in a land of timeless tradition and delightful contrasts. It’s a magical, mystical place where ancient surprises lurk around every corner. Touch down in the ‘Pearl of the Arabian Gulf’, Dubai, and marvel at its heady mix of warm sun, high-rise architecture and boutique shopping. In Khasab, try to visit the stunning 17th century castle, the fascinating Alkmazrh Fort and breathtaking palm groves. Oman’s capital, Muscat is brimming with culture and history. You’ll find Abu Dhabi awash with futuristic skyscrapers and vast shopping malls, and yet it still retains echoes of its ancient past. Sir Bani Yas Island is a wildlife paradise promising pearl diving, scuba diving, mangrove safaris and water sports. Be sure to visit some of Bahrain’s 170,000 “tumuli” or burial mounds, and its ancient fort with foundations dating from 3000 B.C. Return to Dubai for New Year fireworks, then after retracing your route, return to Dubai for your flight home. Remember, we cruise to the region during the milder months, so the weather is always pleasant. Plus, you can wear usual beach attire on most resort beaches, and enjoy alcohol in most hotel bars and restaurants.
