Middle East & India Cruises

Many extended cruises sail between the Mediterranean and India via the Red Sea and Persian Gulf, often detouring via Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha on the way. Sailing via the Suez Canal is a must-do for all cruisers at least once. This lends itself to a stop in Sokhna, the nearest port to Cairo, where cruisers will have the opportunity to visit the iconic Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza. In recent years, Dubai has become a hub for shorter cruises of the Persian Gulf, and Sharm el-Sheikh for the Red Sea, with cruises primarily between October and May, due to its strategic location.

Destination Tips

  • From bustling cities to calming temples, India is a full-on sensory & spiritual experience, with each city offering its own flavour.

  • Safaga, located on the Red Sea coast of Egypt is a good starting point into the Eastern Desert to check out the Roman Imperial Village of Mons Claudianus, or to Luxor, one of the most impressive locations of Egypt, only 220 km away.

  • UAE's modern developments and Jordan's lost city of Petra are must-see landmarks, while souks (markets), breathtaking mosques and desert safaris also make for great exploring.
