    The highlights of this cruise

    Rimal Al Wahiba
    To the desert!
    In Rimal Al Wahiba, everyone can get a feel for the desert: follow in the footsteps of the Bedouins in their traditional camps, live the oriental dream in the midst of lush green oases or go dune bashing – the favourite sport of the sheiks – for an action-packed off-road journey** through the dunes. Endless fun!
    Dubai
    A thrilling change of perspective.
    Dubai’s impressive skyline is best enjoyed from the water. Travel along the coast in a kayak** or on a stand-up paddle board**. From here, the impressive skyscrapers seem even more imposing. Don’t forget your waterproof camera!
    Dubai
    The world’s highest roof.
    Currently the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa rises 828 m (2,716 ft) into the sky. The lift* will send you speeding up to the viewing platform, where you will find the megacity at your feet. Skyscrapers, sea and the expanse of the desert ensure lasting impressions that are best savoured over a great evening meal: head to the Thiptara restaurant** in The Palace Downtown hotel for outstanding Thai cuisine and the eye-catching fountains in front of the Burj Khalifa.
    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.

    GOLF - THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GREENS THE DESERT HAS TO OFFER

    Mon 14.05 Abu Dhabi – Abu Dhabi Golf Club (additional course)
    This exquisite championship course is like an oasis in the middle of the desert, with greens and fairways that look so good they almost seem artificial. The spectacular complex is dominated by a huge clubhouse with a silhouette in the shape of a falcon. As you start your round, you will quickly forget that everything here is built on sand. The imposing 7,440 m (24,409 ft) par-72 course has seven artificial lakes and 90 bunkers.

    Wed 16.05 Mina Khalifa – The Royal Golf Club
    Colin Montgomery built this club in what looked like an oversized sandpit. This might sound a bit disparaging, but it’s true. However, the golfing legend made the most of the local terrain and created a real masterpiece on this stretch of desert. It’s no surprise when, here and there, very impressive natural bunkers crop up on the undulating fairways. This is a course you are not likely to forget in a hurry.

    Sat 19.05 Muscat – Almouj Golf
    Greg Norman, aka “The Shark”, designed a links course here among the desert dunes of Oman. He succeeded in creating a special kind of golf oasis between the beach and the desert, where every tee shot is an experience. When designing the fairways, he was careful to ensure that they provided interesting views of the surrounding landscape. This makes a game of golf here a real visual treat.

    Mon 21.05 Dubai – The Address Montgomerie golf club
    Once again, Colin Montgomerie created an outstanding championship course here. The golfing professional took inspiration from his homeland – Scotland – and designed an interesting links course that perfectly incorporates the local conditions. At the 18th hole, he created a very special challenge from the championship tee, which requires players to use all the skill they can muster. The par 5, measuring an imposing 600 m (1,969 ft), is something even seasoned pros consider a real test.
