A CAPTIVATING AND MYSTERIOUS DESTINATION

Prepare to be mesmerized by the Middle East & Arabian Gulf. Where else in the world can you stroll through ancient souqs before hitting the ski slopes inside a shopping mall? Or kayak with dolphins and then visit some of the oldest and largest mosques in the world? With Azamara Club Cruises®, you’ll discover the juxtaposition of old and new, traditional and modern in countries like the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, and Qatar.

And with our unique style of Destination Immersion® travel, you’ll see the difference between simply traveling somewhere and really getting to know a destination as fascinating as the Middle East & Arabian Gulf.

UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES

  • Wander through thousands of years of history at Bahrain Fort. Once the capital of the Dilmun civilization, some of the uncovered artifacts date as far back as 3,000 BC.
  • Follow your nose as you explore the Land of Frankincense and the historic incense trade in the Al Baleed Archaeological Park near Salalah, Oman. Or better yet, follow your own version of the Incense Road on a 17 Night Route of the Frankincense voyage.
  • Explore the historic ruins of the Al Zubarah Archaeological Site just outside of Doha, Qatar—a former center of the 18th and 19th century pearl-trading business in the Arabian Gulf.

TRADITIONS & CULTURE

  • Unravel the mysteries of One Thousand and One Nights at Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort with a night of Exotic Tales and Arab Traditions in Oman during an AzAmazing EveningsSM event.
  • Marvel at the 82 domes, 24-carat-gold gilded chandeliers, and millions of Swarovski crystals—not to mention the world’s largest hand-knotted carpet—at the Seikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
  • Spend a day at the I.M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, where 1,400 years of art from three continents will inspire your imagination.

SHOPPING

  • Take part in a little retail therapy at Lulu Shopping Center or if you’re looking for a more authentic experience, comb through the stalls at the Haffa Souq, the largest and oldest in Salalah, Oman.
  • Browse modern shopping malls and traditional souqs for everything from designer fashion to traditional handcrafted goods in the emerging cosmopolitan city of Doha, Qatar.
  • Shop ’til you drop in The Mall of the Emirates (where you can even go skiing, inside!) in Dubai, UAE. And for a sneak peak of what to expect of this incredible city, read Lee Abbmonte’s post on our Destination Immersion blog.
