Useful information for your Middle East shore excursions
Most Arabian gulf cruises have Dubai or Abu Dhabi as their start and end point. From there Costa, MSC, Royal Caribbean and other shipping companies also call at, for example, Muscat, Khasab, Manama or Doha. These cruises normally have a duration of 7 to 14 days.
As temperatures can rise up to 40 °C / 104 °F in the summer months, Arabian gulf cruises are mostly offered from October to April. Even in January the water still has a pleasant temperature for bathing, you should definitely not miss it.
In Bahrain, Qatar and Oman you will receive a free entry visa for your shore excursion. A visa is required for Abu Dhabi and Dubai if you are a Canadian, US or UK citizen. Upon arrival in Dubai you will receive a visitor’s visa at the airport, which is valid for 30 days from your arrival and cannot be renewed. A valid passport should therefore be carried.
