Three additional seven-night Desert Days cruises will depart on February 15 and 22 and March 1, 2025, which prices from £469.

The cruises will sail round trip from Doha and call at Bahrain, Dubai, Khasab in Oman, Sir Bani Yas Island and Abu Dhabi.

A three-night Desert Days segment will depart Abu Dhabi and call at Doha, Bahrain and Dubai and costs from £249.

A four-night Desert Days cruise will depart Dubai and call at Khasab, Sir Bani Yas Island and Abu Dhabi. Prices start at £309.

All cruises are available with 50% off deposits if booked by April 30.
