Dubai and the Middle East serve up a diverse range of the modern and ancient, from striking skyscrapers to the unique Egyptian pyramids and so much more in between.
Effortlessly enjoyable journeys
One of the many great things about our Middle East cruise and stay deals is the diversity of the different destinations. One day you could be lying on the beach enjoying a good book, and the next, you could be taking a tour around some of the world’s most iconic landmarks. But, of course, no two days will be the same, so it’s time to get excited and learn a little bit more about where your cruise liner will take you.
There’s no shortage of excitement when you book your Cruise & Stay Holiday to Dubai. You may want to ascend the Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world) to marvel at the views or enjoy the rides with your family at Dubai Parks and Resorts. However, there are also many more relaxing experiences to be had, such as enjoying the sights and sounds of the Dubai Fountain while you’re having a fantastic meal, shopping at the world-famous Dubai Mall with its 1,200 shops or watching the sun go down at Kite Beach with Dubai’s skyline as a memorable backdrop.
Spending the day in Doha, Qatar has plenty of museums, parks, shopping malls, mosques and more to visit during your time here. It’s a fantastic city to spend some time in as the sun beats down on the water at The Pearl, The Corniche and Villagio. In addition, Souq Waqif is a tremendous marketplace where you can immerse yourself in local Qatari culture and pick up some unique souvenirs.
You’ll be spoilt for choice in Bahrain on your cruise holiday. Whether you’re a young family or retired couple, there are some fantastic attractions such as souks, water parks, an ancient fort and the Royal Camel Farm. As in Dubai, there’s a vast selection of shops to browse in Bahrain as well as beaches if you want to find a little bit of time to unwind before returning to your accommodation.
Egypt is another exciting destination on our Middle East Cruise & Stay Trips. Picture yourself gliding down the Suez Canal on route to Jordan. One of our cruise deals gives you two days to discover Safaga - a port located on the Red Sea. Here you’ll find watersports galore as well as fascinating cultural tours and lovely beaches if you just want to take it easy in this beautiful part of Egypt.
Sail away to Sri Lanka with Viva Cruise. You’ll disembark in captivating Colombo - home to ornate temples. It’s worth visiting as many as you can on your day on dry land as these are not to be missed - especially Gangaramaya (Vihara) and Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam.
Your port of call in Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur, the country’s capital city. The Petronas Twin Towers are a popular tourist spot, standing at an incredible 175 metres above street level. Other highlights include the vibrant Batu Caves, Chinatown and its thriving Central Market. Make sure you have time to sample just some of the aromatic food on offer on this leg of your cruise and stay holiday.
Let your worries melt away in the magical Maldives. You’ll disembark in Malé and savour a slice of local life thanks to the colourful buildings, sumptuous seafood dishes and the National Museum. Find a spot to eat or drink near the glorious turquoise waters and appreciate the slower pace of holiday life with the ones you love.

All aboard for an extraordinary adventure
There are few better feelings than being out on deck as you glide through clear, calm waters with the warm breeze giving you that special holiday glow. We work closely with the world’s best cruise lines to bring you great deals on voyages around Dubai, the Middle East, and further afield. Prepare to be dazzled by what’s on offer when you embark on one of the highly impressive cruise ships below:
The MSC World Europa is the first in the fleet to run on LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), making it a more environmentally-friendly option than traditional cruise liners. It can accommodate over 6,700 lucky passengers and is an impressive 333m in length. The interior is remarkable and hosts many cabin choices, restaurants, a spa, a dedicated family district, and more. If you’re looking to book your first cruise holiday, a voyage on the MSC World Europa is a fabulous choice that will blow you away with its luxury, service and attention to detail.
The MSC Virtuosa cruise ship is slightly smaller than its sister ship, the World Europa, with a capacity of around 6,300 guests. It has five fantastic pools onboard and a waterpark that kids will love. There are many other activities on board, including a kids club and a Lego experience. In addition, there’s a casino, spa and beauty services for adults, and a private club area with 24-hour service.
Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas is a floating hotel with a difference. There aren’t many types of accommodation where you can watch a movie from the poolside, do a bit of rock climbing at sea or be mesmerised by a musical on the stage. Your Dubai and Middle East Cruise and Stay Holiday is destined to be one you’ll never forget. Life aboard the Jewel of the Seas is a wonderful experience in itself, but when you add in the various ports you’ll stop off at along the way, you have the recipe for a truly remarkable trip.
With 18 decks, over 1,300 cabins and 1,100 crew members, the Sapphire Princess is an award-winning cruise ship with added sparkle. It first set sail in 2004 and was refurbished in 2018. The Sapphire Princess also has over 700 balconies, offering more opportunities to enjoy the beautiful mornings with a coffee or watch the sun setting over the horizon with the sound of the ocean providing a relaxing soundtrack.
Norwegian Cruise Lines are well-known for the high quality of their vessels and the service onboard. The Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Spirit will transport you to Dubai and the Middle East on a cruise holiday that will live up to your high expectations. These ships are tailored more towards adult guests rather than families, so if you have any questions about the accommodation or activities, please just ask one of the Viva Cruise team.
It’s impossible not to have a great time aboard the Celebrity Constellation cruise liner. It’s a fun-packed destination in its own right with activities such as swimming, archery, silent discos, entertaining theatre shows and the lively vibe of the Sunset Bar with its extra special views out to sea as you sail around India and stop to explore Mumbai, Goa and Cochin.
Look forward to the atmosphere aboard the Carnival Spirit and Carnival Splendor on your Cruise & Stay Break to Dubai and the Middle East. Indulge in a delicious range of dining options with something for all ages and appetites. You can also enjoy several different types of live entertainment in the evenings before returning to the comfort of your cabin or suite.
