About Middle East Cruises

Travel around a part of the world where mysterious deserts roll into glistening, ultra-modern cities and stunning ancient landmarks.

Prepare to be dazzled during your Middle East cruise. This endlessly fascinating part of the world is where the very old and the very new meet in inimitable style. Explore the amazing ancient lost city of Petra in Jordan and sleek, gleaming metropolises such as Dubai, all in one trip. Middle East cruises take you between some of the most impressive cities and ports of the region and give you the chance to experience unique cultures and fascinating sights.

A cruise to the Middle East will take you past some of the world’s most famous historical attractions. Journey along the Nile River in Egypt, stopping to view the temple at Luxor and the pyramids of Giza before ending in the ancient port of Alexandria. Elsewhere, you might see the elegant Islamic temples of Salalah in Oman or venture into the Eastern Mediterranean, where the land speaks of millennia of religious history.

However, a Middle East cruise isn’t all about sightseeing. Ports such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Muscat are all about entertainment, shopping and fun. See Abu Dhabi’s gleaming Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Spend days ashore riding sand dune buggies, splashing in family-friendly water parks or shopping in atmospheric souks and glistening modern malls. The luxury continues on board the cruise ships themselves, which often emulate the indulgence of these thrilling cities with lavish entertainment and world-class dining.

Itineraries for cruises to the Middle East can vary greatly. Consider a one-way trip that winds the whole way around the Arabian Peninsula, stopping in Dubai and Aqaba before cutting through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean. Shorter options are available, such as round-trips around the Persian Gulf, stopping in Oman and up-and-coming cruise destinations such as Bahrain.

Operators tend not to run Middle East cruise journeys throughout July and August. December through March is the busiest time for scheduled cruises around the Persian Gulf. You may find Middle East cruise deals by joining a repositioning trip. As the ship travels to its home port, you will have longer periods at sea, but can avoid the crowds of peak cruise season.
