VIEW THE JOURNEY
Dubai, UAE to Aqaba, (Petra) Jordan
Embark on an unforgettable odyssey circumnavigating the Arabian Peninsula, exploring modern ports, ancient ruins, and futuristic cities throughout the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf. Observe fish darting between twisted mangrove roots during a coastal kayak cruise of Sir Bani Yas Island’s tranquil lagoons. Swim beside your traditional dhow anchored in the turquoise waters defining the Omani Fjords outside Manama, Bahrain. Sip sweet, amber-hued tea beneath glittering chandeliers inside the opulent Emirates Palace, the UAE’s most prestigious hotel. Roll out at dawn on a desert safari beyond Ras Al Khaimah, pausing for honeyed dates, smoky Arabic coffee, and curious camels. Tour the monumental Valley of the Kings, King Tut’s Tomb, and Hatshepsut’s Temple during an overnight night port stay in Safaga near Luxor, Egypt. Venture into the desert beyond Sharm el Sheikh for an authentic Bedouin dinner as a setting sun caresses pink sand dune crests.

In Dubai, sports run the gamut from camel races in the desert to an indoor ski mountain. Architecture spans Bedouin tents and Arabian wind towers to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

By all means, add some extra days here to get your head around this amazing city that seems to be all things to all people.

Not far away are Bedouin villages and the Khawr Najd viewpoint with sweeping views of the impressive fjords.

This classic Red Sea resort glitters like you would expect a “sheik’s peninsula” to glitter, from the shiny brass lamps in the Old Town souk to the sleek private yachts that try (but fail) to eclipse our all-suite Star Plus yacht.
