Costa Cruise of the Emirates

Sarah Smith on 01 April 2012
We wanted to see more of the Emirates after staying in Dubai, so this cruise was perfect for us travelling with two children. The facilities on board are brilliant for families and the free child prices make his cruise company a first choice for me.

Must see:- Abu Dhabi – The Grand Mosque - the most amazingly serene place, quiet and tranquil and a welcome cool retreat from the heat. Be prepared to don the full black gown and head cover to enter.

Omani Fjords – We spotted dolphins and had a wonderful cooling swim in the fjords within Oman’s rugged coastline.

Muscat – Old Muttrah Souk is close to the port and is a myriad of narrow alleyways selling everything and anything. I loved the smells and sounds coming from all the shops and stalls and could have spent hours here, husband permitting!

TIP: Pre book the drinks packages with Costa before departure, well worth it.
