Dubai – Embark MSC Bellissima
Embark MSC Bellissima, a ship which offers an amazing array of features to rival those of her sister ship, MSC Meraviglia. Not only will guests enjoy the new innovative MSC for Me technology that provides an enhanced on board experience, they’ll also experience the world’s first digital cruise assistant, Zoe, a voice-enabled Artificial Intelligence device fitted in every cabin.
Its beaches of clean white sand are overlooked by modern skyscrapers but the capital of the Emirates also hides pockets of a more traditional culture, with souks and sheesha cafes and a bustling dhow harbour.
Sir Bani Yas
The natural island of Sir Bani Yas is famous for its beauty and free-roaming animals such as cheetah and hyenas. Activities available on the island range from archery and snorkelling to horse riding and nature drives; so whether you choose to relax on the beach or go on a wildlife adventure, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable experience.
Entertainment is of an unparalleled level on board with karaoke clubs, comedy clubs and amusement parks. A stand-out highlight includes a unique opportunity to see two original shows by Cirque du Soleil, the world leader in live artistic entertainment, and savour a superb culinary experience in the same glamorous venue.
Bahrain may look like another shimmering Gulf state but it boasts a fascinating history and was the home of the ancient civilisation of the Dilmun. Before oil, Bahrain was famous for its pearls and you’ll still find them on sale in the busy souks, alongside exotic spices and exquisite carpets.
Qatar’s shining jewel, Doha blends traditional and modern with ease and confidence, from large shopping malls to the bustling alleys of Souq Waqif selling fragrant spices, perfume and ornate jewellery. Stroll around Doha Corniche, the waterfront promenade, or take a dhow cruise at sunset for spectacular city views.
Although Dubai glimmers with its glamorous skyline, boutiques and sun-soaked beaches; it is also a city rooted in tradition and history. This can be seen in the impeccable hospitality and courtesy that are extended to visitors, the many mosques dotted around the city and the call of prayer that fills the air.
