Dubai - Hotel Stay
Alongside the glamour of Dubai, you’ll find a rich tradition and fascinating history; wander the narrow streets of the Bastakia Quarter or visit the Burj Khalifa – at 828m it’s the world’s tallest building. Shop ‘til you drop at the world’s largest mall, or escape the bustle and embark on a desert safari, rolling over dunes in a four-by-four.
Dubai - Embark Silver Spirit
The all-new Silver Spirit has been completely refurbished to create extra space and exciting new features that offer an even more luxurious experience at sea. Now with eight superb dining options, an improved health and fitness centre, a larger pool deck, together with Silversea’s world-famous standards of service, you’re guaranteed the cruise of a lifetime on Silver Spirit.
Modern skyscrapers look down on beaches of clean white sand but the capital of the Emirates also hides pockets of traditional culture, with souks, sheesha cafes and a bustling dhow harbour. During your time here you can visit the beautiful white Sheikh Zayed Mosque or the dunes of the Empty Quarter, which seem to stretch endlessly into the horizon.
Whether you take coffee amongst the art installations in the arts café, work out in the fitness centre or relax in the Zagara Spa, you will be treated to one of the finest cruising experiences available on board Silver Spirit. Enjoy first class dining with exceptional wines and relax in what is possibly the best place between sea and sky.
Unlike the other Emirates, Fujairah enjoys the warm waters of the Gulf of Oman with its great diving opportunities and diverse marine life. Behind the coastline of stunning beaches are the foothills of the dramatic Hajar Mountains with their ‘wadi’ riverbeds, hot mineral springs and archaeological sites.
Muscat is a city steeped in Middle Eastern tradition. Unlike the gleaming towers of its neighbours, Muscat’s white-washed buildings feature arabesque domes and windows. With an overnight stay in port, you could visit traditional palaces and mosques or head to nearby lagoons to spot turtles and dolphins. Later, take an evening stroll along the Muttrah Corniche for incredible mountain views.
Spend another day exploring this elegant city, wander about the bustling souks bartering for leather goods, ceramics or jewellery or explore Old Muscat through the eyes of ancient mariners aboard a traditional dhow boat. Back on land, enjoy a cardamom-infused coffee or try some of Muscat’s fresh seafood including tuna, kingfish and lobster.
During these days at sea you’ll have plenty of opportunity to explore all that Silver Spirit has to offer. Relax on a lounger by the pool or admire the view from the whirlpool as the attentive staff bring you your favourite drink. Later enjoy an expertly-made cocktail and share stories with your fellow travellers in Dolce Vita.
The huge metropolis of Mumbai has an infectious energy about it. As a major financial centre and hub for India’s successful film industry, it’s been called the city of dreams for aspiring actors. With an overnight in port, you can enjoy some of India’s premier restaurants and nightlife and you may even spot a Bollywood star!
