  • Dubai By Helicopter

    There is absolutely no finer or more exhilarating way to view the sights of Dubai than by helicopter. The excitement begins with your transfer in a chauffeured private sedan to the helipad where your helicopter awaits to take you on an unforgettable trip that affords you the opportunity to experience the most popular 25 minute flight over Dubai City. Flying high above the city, you will literally enjoy a bird's eye view of the abras and dhows on Dubai Creek, the wind-towered houses of the old town, the ships in Port Rashid, the dramatic high-rise office blocks and hotels of the modern city and you’ll fly over Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world and the centerpiece of downtown. You will also soar near the vicinity of the famous Burj Al Arab luxury hotel and the man-made Palm Jumeirah, an island development which has been uniquely formed in the shape of a palm tree.

    Touching down back at the helipad, you'll no doubt agree this will be one of the highlights of your cruise vacation.

    Please note: The helicopter is not wheelchair accessible and therefore it is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests.

Boarding your coach at the pier, you will first travel to the world renowned Burj Al Arab Hotel, the city's most notable landmark and perhaps one of the most popular hotels in the world, if not one of the most distinctive.

There will be free time to browse the shops on your own before it's time to continue on to the Dubai Marina, enjoying a scenic drive through portions of modern Dubai along your way. A brief stop at the Marina's boardwalk provides an excellent opportunity to capture some attractive photos of the lagoon and colorful marina.

  • Dubai Heritage Tour With High Tea At Burj

    Take an in-depth look at the heritage of Dubai on this enlightening afternoon tour. Your first stop is the Heritage House, an engaging museum recreating an Arab home from the turn of the last century. Originally built in 1890 and extensively restored, the house has a large courtyard surrounded by more than 10 rooms, some elegant motifs and a traditional wind-tower. From here, it's a short walk to the Al Ahmadiya School which was established in 1912 and was the first formal school in Dubai. Built to teach boys about Islam and mathematics, Al Ahmadiya is where many distinguished Arab scholars and dignitaries received their education. Closed in 1963, the school was restored to its original splendor in 1995, with teak doors and verses from the Koran written in Arabic calligraphy decorating the walls.

    Re-joining your coach, you'll travel to Al-Bastakia, a small section of the city located in Bur Dubai that has been declared a heritage area. This charming area offers a glimpse back in time and fascinates visitors with its elegant wind-towers, gypsum decorations, woodwork, meandering narrow lanes, and historical homes that were built by wealthy Persian merchants from southern Iran. After a stop for photos, you'll continue on foot to the marina where you will board a dhow, the traditional Arabic boat, for a short cruise on Dubai Creek. From the comfort of your dhow, you'll be afforded an intriguing view of both traditional and modern Dubai.

    Following your leisurely cruise, you'll drive to the lavish Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian Resort designed to resemble an ancient Arabian citadel. Experience the vibrant Souq Madinat Jumeirah, where narrow winding pathways, 75 boutique shops and street performers all combine to portray a bazaar-like atmosphere. Your final tour stop is at the amazing Burj Al Arab, a landmark and icon of the Dubai skyline. Here you will delight in five-star service while enjoying high tea in a lovely lounge. After feasting on finger sandwiches, warm scones and pastries served with a selection of fine teas or freshly ground coffee, it's time to return to the ship at Port Rashid.

    Please note: The majority of sites on this tour are not wheelchair accessible and therefore, it is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests.

  • Discover Dubai

    Catching sight of the gleaming metropolis of Dubai, it is difficult to believe that barely 30 years ago it was a little more than a desert-strewn wilderness where nomadic tribes roamed the sands and a cluster of settlers crowded around the banks of Dubai Creek.

    On this half-day excursion, explore modern Dubai, where the old fort and ancient houses stand in stark contrast to the uniquely designed high-rise steel and glass buildings. Begin with a photo stop at the dazzling luxury hotel, Burj Al Arab, designed to resemble a billowing sail and dominating the Dubai coastline. The Jumeirah Mosque, an impressive example of Islamic architecture with its two towering minarets, is your next photo opportunity. Built in the medieval Fatimid tradition, this stone mosque is one of the largest sacred structures in Dubai. The Al Bastakiya district is next, with its narrow lanes and tall wind-towers, built to catch a breeze and naturally cool the houses during the summer heat. Within this maze of limestone and coral dwellings built by Iranian merchants, enjoy a tantalizing glimpse of the old Dubai.

    A visit to the Dubai Museum, located in the 200-year-old Fort Fahidi, is your next stop. Opened in 1971, the museum houses a treasure trove of local antiquities, preserving the emirate's history and traditions. Some of the exhibits contain artifacts that date back from the times of pearl diving and long before the discovery of oil.

    Next is a photo stop at the beautifully restored former residence of Sheikh Saeed al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai until 1958, followed by a visit to the Gold and Spice Souqs. Take in the fragrance of exotic spices, sharpen your bargaining skills and be enticed by the glittering displays of gold jewelry, before returning to the ship.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 1 hour of walking and/or standing, and is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina.

  • Walking Tour of Old Dubai

    The very best way to become acquainted with a destination and truly experience the local scene is to explore it on foot. This wonderful tour that affords you an up-close look at many of the city's important landmarks is designed to take you through Old Dubai, which stands in stark contrast to the gleaming high-rise buildings that define modern Dubai.

    Traveling by coach, it's a short transfer to Dubai Creek where you will have a brief photo stop before proceeding on to the Bastakia area where your walking tour commences. This part of Old Dubai is one of the most picturesque historical sites in the city and has been designated as a heritage area. Many of its vintage homes and wind towers have undergone renovations in the last few years and its narrow alleyways have been designated as pedestrian thoroughfares. Your guided walk will lead you past small galleries and colorful cafés before arriving at one of the local residences where you will have a short visit and enjoy some refreshment.

    From here, your tour continues towards the Al Fahidi Fort (Dubai Museum) and passes through the old Textile souq, where a fascinating cornucopia of textiles in varying colors and textures are presented for sale. You may wish to return on your own later to do some shopping as the choices here are virtually unlimited and prices are negotiable.

    Next, you'll visit the Sheikh Saeed House, a magnificent restored home which was the official residence of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum who ruled Dubai from 1912-1958 and was the grandfather of the present ruler. The home, which dates back to 1896, today houses a rare collection of historic photographs, coins, stamps and documents that chronicle Dubai's history. Following your visit here, you'll next make your way to your final stop, the popular Heritage and Diving Village. Located near the mouth of Dubai Creek, the village serves to recreate life as it was in Dubai in days gone by, highlighting the emirate's maritime past, pearl diving traditions and architecture. Delightfully created displays tell the story of Dubai's rich heritage and provide an attractive venue for local potters and weavers to display their wares. At night, the village becomes a venue for open-air dining and live entertainment.

    Rejoining your coach at the village, it's a short transfer back to the pier.
