Middle East cruises

Middle East cruises have much to offer today’s traveller. From the extraordinary natural beauty of Oman and striking modern architecture of Dubai, to Egypt’s Valley of the Kings and Jordan’s ‘Rose-Red’ city, Petra, Middle East cruises are full of treasures.

However it’s not just history that makes our Dubai, Egypt and Suez Canal cruises perfect as a cruise destination. The waters of the Red Sea are famed as a diver’s delight. Shop in cool complexes or among spice scented bazaars and souks, or simply relax in the serene beaches and parks.

This region is a land cloaked in mystery and intrigue. Here, more than any other place in the world, it’s possible to walk in the footsteps of the ancients and gaze upon the remarkable architecture built to appease gods and celebrate Kings and Sultans.
