Dubai

Kitsch charm and seven-star hotels

shore excursion on your MSC Emirates and Oman cruise can be the opportunity to discover Bur Dubai, at the heart of the metropolis of Dubai, on the south side of the breezy Creek. It’s the oldest part of Dubai and it offers a fascinating insight into the city’s traditional roots.
This is where you’ll find many of the place’s most interesting Arabian heritage houses, clustered in the beautiful old Iranian quarter of Bastakiya and the waterfront Shindagha district, as well as the excellent Dubai Museum and the atmospheric Textile Souk.

MSC Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sir Bani Yas cruises also offer excursions to the bustling district of Deira: the centre of Dubai’s traditional commercial activity, much of it still conducted in the area’s vibrant array of old-fashioned souks, including the famous gold and spice markets. A few kilometres south of the old city centre, modern Dubai begins in spectacular style with Sheikh Zayed Road, home to a neck-cricking array of skyscrapers including the glittering Emirates Towers.

Even these, however, are outshone by the massive Downtown Dubai development at the southern end of the strip, centred on the stupendous new Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, flanked by further record-breaking attractions including the gargantuan Dubai Mall and spectacular Dubai Fountain.

West of the Sheikh Zayed Road, the sprawling beachside suburb of Jumeirah is the traditional address-of-choice for Dubai’s European expats, its endless swathes of walled villas dotted with half a dozen shopping malls and a smattering of low-key sights. At the southern end of Jumeirah, there are more iconic sights in the sleepy suburb of Umm Suqeim, including the wave-shaped Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the extraordinary mock-Arabian Madinat Jumeirah complex and the unforgettable Burj al Arab hotel.

    DXB36

    If you like your sightseeing live and direct, there’s no better way to explore Dubai’s old quarter than on this half-day tour, which will take you on an unhurried stroll through the historical streets. To begin with, a coach drive will see you reach the Al Bastakiya district, with a short photo stop scheduled at the saltwater Dubai Creek on the way.

The final highlight of the tour will then be a stop at the Dubai Museum, which forms part of the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort. You’ll have about 1 hour to have a look around on your own before the coach ride back to the ship brings the tour to a leisurely close.

    NATURSKÖNA VÄGAR

    DXB37

    This tour of two halves combines a leisurely coach-based sightseeing drive around the City of Merchants with a chance to stretch your legs in the city’s colourful Miracle Garden. The drive around Dubai begins with a photo stop at the Burj Al Arab, the world’s only 7-star hotel, and then continues on to the Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree. Watch out for views of the Atlantic Hotel as you head for the Dubai Marina, the largest man-made facility of its kind in the world. After soaking up these city vistas, you’ll then have a chance to enjoy outdoor time at the Miracle Garden. Among the plethora of different flowers, you’ll also find plants that are common in more temperate climes, but count as exotics in these parts, which is why petunias and geraniums also form part of the multi-hued line-up. The topiary section even features displays of blooms fashioned to resemble giant hearts, stars, igloos and pyramids. Take your time to enjoy the natural beauty of the park before the coach returns you to the ship. Please note: guests using a wheelchair are advised that they must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach and that wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift.

Your coach will first take you to the lovely old quarter of Al Bastakiya to see the traditional houses with their wind towers, a clever means of pre-electric air cooling. Then it’s on to the Dubai Museum, located in the late 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort, which aims to illustrate Dubai’s traditional way of life. After then crossing the river in a typical abra boat and stopping at a spice market, you’ll get to browse Dubai’s huge gold souk – the best place to buy gold jewellery at rock-bottom prices. Dinner then follows at the iconic 7-star Burj Al Arab Hotel, a fabulous building with an inner atrium that soars to a dizzying 180 m in height. Moving on again, your next destination is the palm-shaped Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island, for a chance to first take photos of the magnificent Atlantis, The Palm resort hotel, followed by a visit to its marvellous Lost Chambers Aquarium. An artistically interpreted setting that resembles the mythical city of Atlantis serves as the backdrop to an amazing variety of marine wildlife that will swim around you as you move through a series of acrylic-walled underground passageways and tunnels. Your final stop will then be at the immense Dubai Mall for a chance to browse the high-end shops before the coach returns you to the ship. Please note: this tour is available on Fridays afternoon only. Due to the marked differences between outside temperatures and those found in the places visited as well as the air-conditioned tour vehicles, we recommend taking a light cotton jumper or cardigan for your comfort. This excursion is unsuitable for guests with mobility problems or using a wheelchair.

    This discovery tour begins with a photo stop at the epitome of modern Dubai, the sumptuous Burj Al Arab Hotel, which is the only 7-star hotel in the world. The tour continues with a drive to the Palm Jumeirah, a magnificent man-made archipelago of islands in the shape of a palm tree.

United Arab Emirates

Diamonds shining in the desert
Diamonds shining in the desert

Dubai is actually just one of the seven statelets which collectively form the United Arab Emirates, or UAE, a loose confederation founded in 1971 following the departure of the British from the Gulf.

Technically the seven emirates are considered equal, and preserve a considerable measure of legislative autonomy, rather like the various states of the USA – which explains, for instance, why local laws in Dubai are so different from those in neighbouring Sharjah.

In practice, however, as a cruise to the Emirates can show you, a clear pecking order applies. Abu Dhabi, easily the largest and wealthiest of the emirates, serves as the capital (even if Abu Dhabi city is barely half the size of Dubai) and wields the greatest influence over national policy, as well as providing the UAE with its president.

Dubai ranks second, followed by Sharjah and then the other emirates of Umm al Quwain, Ras al Khaimah, Ajman and Fujairah, which remain relatively undeveloped and even surprisingly impoverished in places.

The fact that the union has survived despite the sometimes considerable differences of opinion between Dubai and Abu Dhabi is a glowing tribute to local diplomacy, even though it is has also created the anomaly whereby Dubai, with its headline international standing, isn’t even the capital of its own low-key country.
