Winter is the best time to explore the Middle East. From the glitzy urban paradise of Dubai and the understated luxury of Abu Dhabi to the Sultanate of Oman, one of the oldest civilizations on the Arabian Peninsula with towering mountains, wadis, deserts and historic forts, the Middle East will enchant and captivate you. And the best way to explore this region is from the comfort of a cruise ship.
And what makes a holiday to the Middle East this winter even more enticing is that Dubai will be hosting the Dubai Expo 2020, a once in a decade event scheduled to be held between 1st Oct’ 21 till 31st Mar ’22 that showcases 191 country pavilions. Most itineraries have overnight halts in Dubai which means that your cruise cabin is your hotel room in Dubai while you explore Expo 2020. Besides the UAE government has introduced a multi entry visa for cruise travellers making it really convenient to explore this region on a cruise.
