P&O Cruises give you the freedom to holiday your way, so whether you prefer getting out and about on the shore or relaxing on the sun deck, you can choose to do as much or as little as you like on your Dubai and Arabian Gulf holiday; with no tips ever required or expected.

Here are just a few reasons why you should choose P&O Cruises for your exotic cruise holiday.

A wealth of dazzling destinations

From the futuristic cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi to calls in Bahrain and Oman, a fly-cruise with P&O Cruises beautifully combines winter sunshine, iconic skylines, desert dunes and atmospheric souks, to create a stunning holiday that you’ll never forget.

“I loved my first visit to Dubai and it certainly won't be my last”

A host of exciting experiences

With exciting shore excursions in every port of call that you visit, there’s ample opportunity to fuel your adventurous spirit or soak up the local culture. Choose from a whole host of exciting experiences, including desert safaris, relaxing Dhow Marina cruises and even a trip to the top of the world’s tallest building.

Enthralling entertainment

Whether it’s glittering theatre shows, incredible live music or laugh out loud comedy, there’s so much enthralling entertainment to enjoy onboard. Together with locally themed entertainment, Gala Evenings, casinos and dancing, as well as shops, art galleries and bars, you’ll never be short of something new to do.

Delicious dining options

Oceana offers a diverse choice of delectable dining options, from informal buffets and snack bars, through to black tie Gala Evenings with five-course menus developed by Marco Pierre White. For something extra special, why not treat yourself to a meal in Café Jardin or The Beach House?

Refreshing relaxation

Relaxation means something different to everyone, and onboard Oceana, there are plenty of different ways to relax and unwind. Swim a few lengths in the pool, run a couple of laps on deck, sink into the bubbling whirlpool spa or stretch out on a sun lounger with a good book and your favourite cocktail. The beauty of a holiday with P&O Cruises is that you can choose to do as much or as little as you like, and if the mood takes you, why not treat yourself to a soothing spa treatment or an energising fitness class?
