WHY CRUISE THE ARABIAN GULF & INDIA?

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.
