Dubai & Emirates Cruises

A cruise to the Middle East means a visit to the legendary Red Sea or the sun-drenched Persian Gulf. The size of the region means you will get many more relaxed days at sea with ports of call varying from tropical rainforests, deserts, sandy beaches and snow-capped mountains.

When to Visit?

The best time to visit is from November to April during the northern winter, when the weather should be mostly sunny and hot.


A lot of cruises passing through here are world voyages which will typically pass through in March or April, however some cruise lines will base ships in the region for a season, sailing out of Dubai typically. Longer, repositioning cruises may pass through the Suez Canal, a timeless journey through the heart of Egypt.

The Red Sea

A cruise to the Red Sea will visit ports such as Safaga for the chance to explore ancient Luxor, Eilat, Israel's southernmost city and Aqaba for the chance to visit stunning Petra.

Persian Gulf

Usually 7 days in duration, Persian Gulf cruises will set out from Dubai to visit some of the major ports of the Emirates and Oman such as Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Khasab and Fujairah.
