Khasab/Musandam/Oman, 7.00 – 15.00 hrs

In the evening, you will leave the glittering city and glide through the Persian Gulf headed for Oman. The next morning, it will feel as though you were entering a different world: Khasab on Oman’s rarely visited Musandam peninsula. Let a traditional dhow* take you through the rugged fjords – if you are lucky, playful dolphins will accompany you through the “Norway of Arabia”. A tour of discovery* featuring the city and the hinterland provides you with interesting insights into this fascinating region.

Muscat/Oman, 7.00 – 18.00 hrs

Muscat seems to have emerged from 1,001 Nights on the one hand and presents itself as the modern capital city of Oman on the other. Look forward to these enthralling contrasts during a tour* and a visit to the impressive Grand Mosque. In the picturesque oasis city of Nizwa*, you will encounter Oman as it used to be. The haggling of the traders at the large cattle market is an unforgettable experience.

Relaxation at sea
Mina Khalifa/Manama/Bahrain, 6.00 – 21.00 hrs

After a tranquil day at sea, the Kingdom of Bahrain awaits you. Mina Khalifa, the port of the capital city Manama, is your destination the following morning. A sightseeing tour of the city* offers you the opportunity to discover regal Bahrain – from the souk with its gold and spice alleys to the National Museum and the Grand Mosque. Your side trip to the modern Formula One race track* also proves to be multifaceted.


children’s excursion: There’s no end of swimming fun*in the water park in Mina Khalifa. Besides the many slides in the outer and inner areas, the lazy river is an ideal opportunity to just let yourself float along.

Doha/Qatar, 12.00 – 20.00 hrs

The football world championship 2022 is scheduled to take place in the emirate of Qatar. In Doha, you will get to know the future host.

teens’ excursion: A special journey awaits you at the camel farm in Doha. Experience the ships of the desert up close and enjoy an opportunity to take a ride*.

Abu Dhabi/United Arab Emirates, 8.30 – 18.00 hrs

The rapid upswing of the region is more apparant in Abu Dhabi than in the majority of other cities on the Gulf coast. Within merely 40 years, the formerly insignificant city developed to become one of the most modern metropolises in the world. A visit to the falcon hospital* shows you that despite all progress, the love of the sheikhs for their tradition-steeped falconry remains unaffected. In the course of a drive* through the fascinating dunes of the Al Khatim desert, you might catch sight of one of the sophisticated birds of prey.


family excursion: In Abu Dhabi sports fans can enjoy Formula 1 in the middle of the desert*. What actually happens in the media centre and in the control room? Find out for yourself!
