7 nights, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sir Bani Yas – MSC Cruises– 9th December 2018

We absolutely love this week-long adventure in the middle-east – its a perfect pre-christmas getaway! Bahrain and Doha are wonderful locations with that 50/50 balance between modern cities and cultural hotspots. Finishing up with two days in our destination of the month, Dubai!

MSC Splendida carries you in stylish luxury to some of the most desirable cruise destinations in the world. You’ll love the live music and wide variety of bars and restaurants onboard. Food choices to explore include authentic Mediterranean specialities and spicy Tex-Mex. Complete the night with a world-class show in The Strand Theatre, a winning streak in the Royal Palm Casino or dancing ‘til dawn in the Club 33 Disco. They’ve got fitness and sport covered with four swimming pools, a squash court, volleyball court, an ultramodern gym and even a running track, allowing you to take in stunning ocean views and refreshing sea breeze. An adventure awaits onboard MSC Splendida.

33 nights, Singapore to Southampton – P&O Cruises – 20th March 2018

This Singapore to Southampton voyage is a real once-in-a-lifetime experience – from South-east Asia to Europe in the space of a month, the range in lifestyle and culture you’ll witness will take your breath away.

P&O Cruises’ Azura is the perfect partner for a truly memorable holiday – one of the larger ships in the fleet, Azura is simply a delight for guests of all ages. There’s no end of fun both adults and families. With a menu to suit every appetite – from five-course meals to grills and pizzerias, you definitely won’t be going hungry. Fantastic shows, live bands and comedians await you to provide you with the best entertainment at sea. Play football, basketball and deck tennis in the enclosed sports court, practice your swing in the golf nets and stretch your legs on the ship’s sports deck or promenade. The choice is yours!

14 nights, Arabian Sea and India Cruise – Celebrity Cruises® – 19th December 2017

It’s not hard to see why we’ve picked this Celebrity cruise out as one Dubai’s best! This fortnight sailing from Abu Dhabi takes you on a wonderful adventure to India followed by the wonders of the Arabian Gulf, such as Muscat and of course, Dubai!

Celebrity Constellation® offers you some of the classiest and most unforgettable experiences at sea as you explore the Gulf and India. Recent Solstice Class improvements have made Constellation even more luxurious – enjoy the enhanced WiFi onboard, as well as new Reverie mattresses in every room and a fresh, modern colour scheme. What’s more, Celebrity Constellation is a haven for foodies. From the timeless elegance and classic combinations found in the main dining room to the authentic ice cream at the Café al Bacio and Gelateria, there’s something to tantalise your taste-buds at every time of day. When the stars come out over the ocean, Constellation comes to life. Head to Cellar Masters for a craft beer or liquor, or perhaps dance the night away at the Reflections Lounge!
