11 Night Cruise sailing from Dubai roundtrip aboard Azamara Quest.

If you love golf and luxury, don’t miss this voyage in partnership with PerryGolf.™ Our planned lineup includes Doha Golf Club, annual host of the Qatar Masters; the Greg Norman designed Almouj Golf Club in Oman; the beachfront Saadiyat Beach Golf Club in Abu Dhabi and the Majlis Course of Emirates Golf Club in Dubai, host to the Dubai Desert Classic.

The sights are just as spectacular. Khor Al Fakkan features stunning coral reefs and boat excursions on the beautiful Gulf of Oman. Muscat is a beautifully preserved old city that’s home to the elegant Al Bustan Palace Hotel. Learn the ancient sport of falconry in Qatar, and in Abu Dhabi don’t miss the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, an astounding monument that rivals the Taj Mahal. Yas Island is an adult playground where you can race on a Formula One track and ride the world’s fastest roller coaster. And then there’s Dubai, an opulent oasis of firsts, from a manmade island shaped like a palm tree to an underwater hotel. Have tea at the luxurious Burj Al Arab hotel, take a ride to the top floors of Burj Khalifa and shop for all that glitters at the Gold Souk.

Highlights of this cruise:

Dubai
Dubai can already be mistaken for a movie set featuring a futuristic metropolis, and there are big plans still in the works. In the middle of the desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, there are so many building projects that foreign construction crews vastly outnumber citizens.

Everything is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including manmade islands shaped like palm trees and the world’s first underwater hotel.

It’s a striking collection of styles, including modern interpretations of Islamic architecture. And if the planet’s largest shopping mall doesn’t appeal, traditional souks do still exist, including a gold souk housing over 200 retail shops.

Muscat
Meaning “safe anchorage” in Arabic, Muscat has a longstanding relationship with the sea. From its prominence as a trading port in the first century, to its importance as a modern-day commercial center, this elegant town with fine houses has an ocean of things to discover.

Take a stroll along the Corniche and enjoy sweeping views and some of the best shopping in the city at the Mutrah Souq. The colorful maze-like marketplace is filled with treasures like mother of pearl jewelry and traditional Omani handicrafts such as intricately designed shoulder bags and wooden carvings. In the nearby hills, you can also find plenty of frankincense (although we can’t guarantee the number of wise men to be found).

After you’ve shopped to your heart’s content, grab a freshly squeezed fruit juice from a street vendor and climb to the base of Mutrah Fort at the east end of the Corniche for a spectacular view of the city.

Moving uptown, be sure to visit the Sulan Qaboos Grand Mosque. The third largest in the world, it features a massive Swarovski crystal chandelier with over 600,000 crystals and a hand-woven prayer rug with more than 1.7 billion knots. Now that’s a rug knot to be forgotten!

Abu Dhabi
As the capital of the United Arab Emirates and the largest emirate by area, Abu Dhabi is home to the seat of government, the Al Nahyan royal family, and a population of approximately 20% Emirati citizens and 80% expats. But its commitment to local culture and heritage, combined with international influences, is what makes Abu Dhabi an intriguing, exciting, and hospitable mix of new and old.

To see a shining example of the new, visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. With 82 domes, 24-carat gold-gilded chandeliers, and the world's largest hand-knotted carpet, this architectural wonder offers a glimpse into the area’s soul. To learn more about the past, visit Abu Dhabi Heritage Village and be sure to take part in the very modern tradition of taking a selfie with a camel.

When it’s time to beat the desert heat, go for a stroll along the waterfront of Corniche Road to find restaurants and cafés perfect for people watching, not to mention Corniche Beach. And if you crave the cool comfort of air conditioning, shop to your heart’s content at one of the many upscale malls found throughout the city.
