Take in ancient culture, awe inspiring landscapes, vibrant cities and paradise beaches on this eight-day voyage
Departing glitzy Dubai, we sail to its neighbouring Emirate: Abu
Dhabi. A more sedate and traditional city, here you'll find souqs
with gold and spice sellers, a spectacular Grand Mosque with the
world's largest carpet and a theme park with the world's fastest
Next, we cruise to Oman and dock in the port Khasab on the
Musandam Peninsula. This gorgeous, mountainous region has rocky
creeks and fjords, best explored by traditional dhow boat, and
inland you can explore mountain villages and ancient
Muscat, the Omani capital, is our next port of call and here all
manner of adventures await, from meeting turtles out in the nearby
lagoons or shopping in traditional Arabic souqs. Visit the Sultan's
palace and don't miss a stroll along the waterfront Corniche.
We'll then sail back to the UAE to visit little-known Fujairah,
a city surrounded by craggy mountains where trails invite intrepid
travellers for long, picturesque walks. Nearby, mangrove forests
might tempt you to board a kayak and see some of the region's
wildlife. The city's beach resorts offer a great spot to relax
before we end our voyage back in buzzing Dubai.
Your home throughout will be the luxurious Golden Horizon, a
near replica of a 1913-built ocean-faring ship, which combines the
charm and romance of a classical vessel, with the food and service
you expect of a modern ship.
