On board MS EUROPA 2 from Dubai to Dubai
Fairy tales from the Arabian Nights
Nowhere else does the world seem to turn as fast as on the Arabian Peninsula, yet ancient traditions are afforded as much respect as ever. From skyscrapers to deserts, experience the magic of the Orient on the EUROPA 2. Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Mina Sulman have become shimmering metropolises with futuristic skylines. But in spite of all this progress, mosques, traditional markets and wooden boats remain impressive monuments to the past. In Oman, Khasab’s mountain Jebel Harim** offers dreamlike panoramic views and the Sultan’s Palace in Muscat seems once to have been a setting for the fairy tales from the Arabian Nights.
Highlights of this cruise
- Mina Khalifa and Muscat: cities like those from the Arabian Nights.
- Teatime** at the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel.
- The modern Formula 1 track** in Bahrain.
