Discover a land of mystic sun and boutique charm

Fly out to Valletta in Malta and brace yourself for a captivating journey through time. It’s time to unlock the ancient (and ultra-modern) cultures of the Arabian Gulf, as well as Heraklion in Crete. Expect old world charm, absorbing culture, and some of the most spellbinding cities on earth… all in one amazing holiday.

After a call at Heraklion in sunny Crete, the Suez Canal is next… an unforgettable 101-mile-long route from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea. Your first stop here is Salalah; fragrant with frankincense, littered with ancient ruins and home to the Queen of Sheba’s palace. Onto Oman, and Muscat, its capital, brimming with culture and history. Onwards to the ‘Pearl of the Arabian Gulf’… Dubai – home to Sultan’s palaces and towering skyscrapers. Abu Dhabi is awash with vast shopping malls and yet still retains echoes of its ancient past. Be sure to visit some of Bahrain's 170,000 “tumuli” or burial mounds, and its ancient fort with foundations dating from 3000 B.C. In Khasab, highlights include a stunning 17th century castle and the fascinating Alkmazrh Fort. Expect the unexpected on Sir Bani Yas Island. It’s a wildlife paradise promising pearl and scuba diving, mangrove safaris and water sports. Remember, we cruise to the region during the milder months, so the weather is always pleasant. Plus, you can wear usual beach attire on most resort beaches, and enjoy alcohol in most hotel bars and restaurants.
