Say goodbye to those wintry showers and get your Vitamin D fix with this amazing Arabian Gulf sailing.

And did we mention you’ll be sailing over the festive period? Yes, you could be joining Thomson Cruises onboard their stunning Thomson Celebration for a sunshine-filled Christmas.

A la carte restaurants, spa facilities and two pools are just some of the amenities you can take advantage of while onboard. Besides, sailing over Christmas means you’ll get to enjoy added perks such as a carol service and mince pies!

Just think – no wrapping presents and preparing the Christmas dinner, instead you’ll be discovering some of the Middle East’s most exciting destinations including Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi.

This amazing price is based on two people sharing an inside cabin on a Full Board basis. This means all of your food in the main dining venues, entertainment, and most importantly your tips are included in the price of your fare. However, if you plan on over indulging during your sailing, it may be worth purchasing one of Thomson Cruises’ fantastic drinks packages.

Itinerary hightlights


As one of the fastest growing cities in the world, there’s always something new and exciting happening in Dubai. This fascinating city never ceases to amaze from a skyline to rival Manhattan to the world’s most luxurious hotel and shopping malls filled with gigantic aquariums, Dubai is like nowhere else in the world. And surrounding all of this madness is miles and miles of desert, so if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city a desert safari is a must.

Night view of Dubai


With more money than anywhere else in the world, Qatar’s capital Doha is constantly growing and remodelling itself with new structures constantly being added to its already packed skyline. Luxury hotels, museums and fancy shopping malls are just some of this city’s newest attractions, but that doesn’t mean you won’t come across reminders of old Qatar. The city’s Arabian roots are still present, especially if you head to Souq Waqif, which has been a shopping and dining spot for centuries now.
