Like everything else in Dubai, the port is also a mega-construction that easily belongs among the largest on the planet. It is also some of the best loading machinery for both passengers and cargo.
The best way to get to Rashid port is by transfer or taxi, given how cheap and fast they are in this city.
Cruise ships departing from Dubai generally stop at destinations around the Persian Gulf: Abu Dhabi, Oman, and Bahrain. However, due to its important location between Europe and Asia, large shipping companies also stop here en route across the globe, which means there are also cruise options to distant cities such as Barcelona, Singapore, and even Sydney.
When you want to travel
Cruises from Dubai operate between November and March when the Mediterranean starts to get cold and the shipping companies move their vessels to the Middle East. This is the perfect way to escape the European winter.
Normally the itineraries are for 7 nights and peak season is Christmas and New Years' Eve.
When to reserve
If you want to spend Christmas aboard a specific cruise ship or travel with children, we recommend booking as far in advance as possible, so you can get the desired cabin at the best price.
