Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1-2: Dubai, UAE: Depart 23:00

After your flight to Dubai, you will be transferred to your hotel for your one night stay. In the morning you will be transferred to the port to board the 6* Silversea Silver Spirit.

Dubai sits on a golden sandy coastline in the Arabian Gulf, where the warm azure waves of the sea meet the desert. A high-rise oasis, this city is a pleasure-dome surrounded by dunes; one of the most fashionable on the planet thanks to its ability to satisfy the needs of legions of demanding vacationers. Dubai is about having fun—and it’s one big adult playground. Nature plays her part here, with year-round sunshine, gorgeous beaches, dramatic arid landscapes, and warm waters, but it’s the man-made attractions that make Dubai so alluring.

Day 3: Abu Dhabi, UAE: Arrive 08:00 Depart Midnight

Just a few decades ago, Abu Dhabi, the island capital of the United Arab Emirates, was a small fishing village with houses made of mud-brick and palm fronds. Today, as a result of revenue from oil, Abu Dhabi is one of the world’s richest cities, with wide, tree-lined okulevards, lush green parks, gushing fountains and imposing skyscrapers. Somewhat of a dichotomy, Abu Dhabi is a combination of ultra-modern sophistication and Arab mystique, with friendly and hospitable people offering a warm welcome to visitors.

Day 4: At Sea:

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Day 5: Fujairah, UAE: Arrive 08:00 Depart 18:00

A visit to the Emirate of Fujairah is a chance to see a different side to the United Arab Emirates, swapping the flashy mega-towers for heritage-rich mosques and crumbling forts. While elements of Dubai’s and Abu Dhabi’s skyward dash are present in Fujairah city, on the whole, you can expect to enjoy a much more down to earth version of the UAE than you might be used to, as you explore this intriguing destination of history and heritage. The Al Bidya Mosque is a true link to the past, and this incredible building is the UAE’s oldest mosque.

Day 6-7: Muscat, Oman: Arrive 08:00 Overnight Depart 16:00

Oman’s capital city is hemmed in on one side by spectacular jagged-peaked mountains and on the other by royal blue sea. The architecture is a traditional, sophisticated arabesque blend of white-washed, low-rise buildings surrounded by manicured palms, intricately designed domes set atop the minarets of the mosques, sand-colored villas, a surprising blend of modern art installations, like a giant incense burner that towers over the Corniche, and ancient forts set in the rocky hills.

Day 8-9: At Sea:

Day 10-11: Mumbai, India: Arrive 08:00 Overnight

Delhi may be the capital city, but it’s Mumbai that encapsulates all the dynamic, chaotic parts that make up modern India. This is where you’ll find everything from succulent street food to haute cuisine, bargain-basement bazaars to the finest haute couture, humbling poverty to staggering wealth, sacred temples to hedonist nightclubs. Mumbai is India—vibrant, hectic, frustrating, enervating, and exhilarating, warts and all. Mumbai is a city of extremes, where slum-dwelling strivers making dollars a day serve Bollywood stars and industrial billionaires.

Following breakfast on your final day, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight home to Ireland.

1 night in a 5 star Dubai hotel before your cruise, room only.
