    The highlights of this cruise

    Reflecting skyscrapers, gigantic shopping malls and impressive mosques – enjoy the spectacular scenery of DUBAI before spending carefree hours on the private beach of the exclusive island of SIR BANI YAS or paddling through the mangroves* in a kayak. Superlatives are also spectacular in the neighbouring emirate of ABU DHABI: the capital leaves nothing to be desired, and those seeking adventure will be in their element on a desert safari* through the dunes. Progress and tradition go hand in hand in the Persian Gulf: in DOHA, a city walk* takes you from the sophisticated La Corniche to the mud buildings of the Souk Waqif and in Bahrain, a visit to the Formula One racetrack* is a must when you accompany us from MINA KHALIFA on explorations through the history of the island state extending more than 5,000 years. Reflect on your impressions during the next few days at sea and on the idyllic beaches of the island of PRASLIN in the Seychelles before we bid you farewell in PORT LOUIS.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.

    Experience the world’s best golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages, we have reserved the best golf courses for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: Four courses
    € 2,290 per person

    Settings straight out of the Arabian Nights – the fairways around the Persian Gulf are lined up like a string of pearls. Three marvellous desert courses await, challenging every player both mentally and in terms of play. The fourth course offers a jungle setting in complete contrast to the previous desert experiences. These Golf & Cruise adventures could not be any more different.

    Sun, 07.12.2025, Abu Dhabi – United Arab Emirates – Abu Dhabi Golf Club – National Course
    The 27 parkland-style fairways are divided into an 18-hole and a 9-hole course. The nine holes can also be played in the late evening hours thanks to a floodlight system. The 18-hole National Course is rather atypical for the area with numerous artificial lakes. The course requires a high degree of concentration, as the fairways are flanked by sand on one side and water on the other. So once again it is an advantage if you can drive the ball straight in front of you.

    Tue, 09.12.2025, Doha, Qatar – Doha Golf Club
    How about a round of golf in the biggest bunker in the world? A unique golfing experience awaits you at Doha Golf Club. The fairways, some of which are quite narrow, are bordered on the right and left by the original desert sand. As a result, the green of the fairways is in stark contrast to the surrounding sandy terrain. This makes it all the more important that you can give your ball a clear direction. If the unusual circumstances don’t cause a problem for your game, you should be able return to the clubhouse with a convincing final score.

    Wed, 10.12.2025, Mina Khalifa, Bahrain – The Royal Golf Club Bahrain
    A golfing round in the desert awaits you. This 18-hole experience designed by golf legend Collin Montgomerie is located in the centre of the island. As you would expect from the surroundings, the fairways reflect the correspondingly varied terrain. The fairways, some of which are very narrow, are laid out through the original desert sand – with the fairways modelled on those in Scotland. As is customary in Arabian climes, you can look forward to a cool drink in the highly sophisticated clubhouse after your round.

    Wed, 17.12.2025, Praslin, Seychelles – Lemuria Golf Club
    Located in the north-west, 50 per cent of the championship course runs through a natural jungle plateau directly on the coast. The resulting fairways turn the round into a unique game of golf in the midst of nature. There are always extraordinary views of the Indian Ocean, which can have a slightly distracting effect on you as you play. The other 50 per cent of the fairways are surrounded by many tall coconut trees. A truly idyllic golfing experience.


    • Please note: In order to guarantee a comfortable flow of play for all golfers, we have determined a basic speed, which is sufficient for a playing time of four and a half to five hours on foot (covering 18 holes with a trolley).
    • Due to tournaments or renovations, etc. at the various golf clubs, our Golf & Cruise programme is subject to change at short notice.
    • Golf & Cruise voyages allow all players with a handicap index of 36 or better to play on courses all over the world.
    • Additional courses can only be booked in conjunction with the basic package.
    • Reservation of e-carts cannot always be guaranteed due to local availability and/or the weather conditions. You may, therefore, have to play and walk just with trolleys – possibly even on hilly courses. Please consider this when planning/booking your Golf & Cruise package.
    • Halfway refreshments are always ordered via the respective golf club; we have no influence on the quality of the snacks. We kindly ask for your understanding.
    • When booking a Golf & Cruise package and flights through Hapag-Lloyd, we will register your golf equipment directly with the airlines – when possible and required. The current baggage regulations of the relevant airline apply. In your travel documents, which you will receive about four weeks prior to departure, you will find relevant information about this. Excess baggage fees for golf equipment are normally to be paid at check-in.
    • Minimum number of participants for basic package: twelve people.
    • Minimum number of participants for additional courses: ten people.
    • If the minimum number of participants is not reached, cancellation will occur no later than eight weeks prior to cruise departure.
    • Rental clubs for right-handed and left-handed players are available on board, subject to a surcharge.
