As the first cruise line to home port in Abu Dhabi, we’re proud to introduce you to a vibrant region of culture, history and innovation in the United Arab Emirates and beyond.
Our stunning destinations.
We’ll take you cruising through the Suez Canal – the waterway connecting the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. Keep your camera ready to capture the unique sights and exotic wildlife.
One of the finest natural harbours on the Arabian coast of India, Kochi (also known as Cochin) was once known as the centre of the Indian spice trade.
How can you resist a place whose local motto is "Sossegade", which translates to: "take it easy"? Goa is home to high-end restaurants, picture-perfect beaches and fabulous shopping.
The city previously known as Bombay pulsates with nonstop energy and excitement. And to think, it all began with cotton. Nowadays, this vibrant metropolis boasts a blend of many cultures.
Experience New Mangalore, a bustling city with rich historical influences. Surrounded by the rolling Sahyadri Mountains and rivers that flow toward the Arabian Sea, New Mangalore is uniquely dazzling.
Along the shores of the Red Sea, Aqaba is best known for the snorkelling and diving opportunities it offers. This seaside resort town also provides an array of desert activities.
As one of the Middle East's oldest cities, Muscat boasts beautifully manicured parks, long, unspoiled stretches of beach, and an ancient stone moat that surrounds the area.
The largest city in Sri Lanka is also one of the most vibrant stops in the Indian Ocean. Why not explore Colombo on a sightseeing tour in a three-wheeled tuk-tuk?
The discovery of oil transformed Abu Dhabi from a fishing village into a thriving metropolis, but it hasn’t forgotten its past. Skyscrapers sit side by side with mosques and bazaars.
Dubai is a unique blend of the old and new. On one end of the spectrum, you have "seven-star" luxury hotels and on the other, ancient souk markets selling spices.
Sir Bani Yas Island can be found to the south of Abu Dhabi and is the perfect destination for nature lovers due to its decades of conservation work and wildlife reserve.
What the Arabian Gulf & India has to offer.
We’re excited to home port in Abu Dhabi, with its unique fusion of history and modern life. Start with a visit to Qasr al-Hosn, also known as the “White Fort”, which is the oldest stone building in Abu Dhabi.
For something a little more adrenaline-fuelled, why not try sand skiing? Swap powdery snow for miles of rolling sand dunes in the Liwa Oasis, which offers some of the best sand skiing in the world. Onto Dubai, where maximalist is the name of the game – think sky-grazing buildings, gargantuan shopping malls, and of course, a manmade island in the shape of a palm.
On an Arabian Gulf and India cruise, we’ll also take you sailing to Sri Lanka, an island nation where crashing surf meets lush rainforests and ancient ruins.

The best time to visit the Arabian Gulf & India, with Celebrity Cruises.
The Arabian Gulf and Indian regions tend to be at least warm all year-round, but some months can be uncomfortably hot for those unused to such high temperatures. The most popular months for cruising in this region are between October and March. In January, average temperatures sit at around 24 degrees Celsius.
You can also plan your cruise around one of the many events and festivals taking place in the region. The Abu Dhabi Festival occurs in March and celebrates strengthening ties between Abu Dhabi and the world. Sri Lanka is often said to have more festivals than anywhere else. Independence Day takes place in February and celebrates the country's independence with dances and parades.
