Leave the Gulf - and your expectations - behind as you set out for land to explore natural wonders, ancient mosques and modern luxury architecture rising like dunes in the awe-inspiring expanses of desert sand.
A Dubai/Emirates cruisetour gives you the freedom to linger at the souks (Arabian Markets) over gold, textiles and spices; to discover clear cool waters in Fujairah; to rev your engines over the sand dunes of Lisaili; to engage your senses and savor the days and the nights of Arabia.
The most populous city in the Emirates is famous for its luxury architecture and fantastic man-made islands. Take in the sights on a panoramic tour down Sheikh Zayed Road, which runs parallel to the Gulf and is home to countless skyscrapers. You'll also see the world's largest residential development at Jumeirah Beach, the luxury gated community of Emirates Hill, and - of course - Mall of the Emirates, where you can ski indoors!
Ras Al Khaimah
Archaeologists have found evidence of settlers and traders in the area dating back to 5,000 BC. And it's no wonder Ras Al Khaimah is a timeless draw - you'll be mesmerized, excited and relaxed surrounded by the lush flora and scenic landscapes of the peaceful village oasis of Asimah.
The only Emirate located in the Gulf of Oman, Fujairah boasts a striking mountainous landscape that draws nature lovers year-round. You won't be able to resist diving into the crystal clear waters that surround Wadi Warrayah, one of the UAE's most visited waterfalls.
