Dubai

Kitsche charme en 7-sterren hotels

Een excursie aan wal tijdens uw MSC Emiraten- en Oman-cruise biedt u de kans om Bur Dubai te ontdekken, in het hart van de metropolis Dubai, aan de zuidkant van de winderige beek. Het is het oudste gedeelte van Dubai en biedt een fascinerende blik in de traditionele origine van de stad.
Hier vindt u vele interessante Arabische oude huisjes, bij elkaar in de prachtige oude Iraanse wijk Bastakiya en Shindagha aan de waterkant, evenals het fascinerende Dubai Museum en de sfeervolle textielmarkt.

MSC Emiraten- en Oman-cruises bieden ook excursies naar het bruisende Deira: het centrum van Dubai's traditionele commerciële activiteiten, die nog steeds uitgeoefend worden op de levendige ouderwetse markten (souks), met onder meer de beroemde goud- en specerijenmarkten. Een paar kilometer ten zuiden van het oude stadscentrum begint het moderne Dubai in spectaculaire stijl met de Sheikh Zayed Road, waar een overweldigend scala aan wolkenkrabbers te bewonderen is, waaronder de schitterende Emirates Towers.

Maar zelfs deze worden overschaduwd door de immense uitbouw in het centrum van Dubai aan het zuidelijke eind van de weg, rondom de enorme Burj Khalifa,het hoogste gebouw ter wereld, geflankeerd door recordbrekende bezienswaardigheden zoals de gigantische Dubai Mall en de spectaculaire Dubai Fountain.

Aan de westelijke kant van Sheikh Zayed Road vindt u de uitgestrekte buitenwijk aan zee, Jumeirah , een populaire plek voor Dubai's Europese expats, met eindeloze ommuurde villa's bezaaid met talrijke winkelcentra en een aantal minder opvallende bezienswaardigheden. Aan de zuidelijke kant van Jumeirah zijn er meer iconische bezienswaardigheden te vinden in de rustige buitenwijk Umm Suqeim, waaronder het golfvormige Jumeirah Beach Hotel, het buitengewone schijn-Arabische Madinat Jumeirah complex en het onvergetelijke Burj al Arab hotel.

This tranquil spot is not just perfect for relaxing amid majestic sand dunes, but also for having a go at sand-skiing or camel riding. Please note: the driver will provide information in English.

    If you like your sightseeing live and direct, there’s no better way to explore Dubai’s old quarter than on this half-day tour, which will take you on an unhurried stroll through the historical streets. To begin with, a coach drive will see you reach the Al Bastakiya district, with a short photo stop scheduled at the saltwater Dubai Creek on the way. The Al Bastakiya area is particularly famed for its old houses with wind towers, a means of passively cooling a building without the need for electrically powered air conditioning. You’ll also pass through the textile souk and the heritage area during your visit. The final highlight of the tour will then be a stop at the Dubai Museum, which forms part of the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort. You’ll have about 1 hour to have a look around on your own before the coach ride back to the ship brings the tour to a leisurely close. Please note: as the tour involves 3 hours of walking and standing (in total), it is considered to be unsuitable for guests with mobility problems or using a wheelchair.

    This tour of two halves combines a leisurely coach-based sightseeing drive around the City of Merchants with a chance to stretch your legs in the city’s colourful Miracle Garden. The drive around Dubai begins with a photo stop at the Burj Al Arab, the world’s only 7-star hotel, and then continues on to the Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree. Watch out for views of the Atlantic Hotel as you head for the Dubai Marina, the largest man-made facility of its kind in the world. After soaking up these city vistas, you’ll then have a chance to enjoy outdoor time at the Miracle Garden. Among the plethora of different flowers, you’ll also find plants that are common in more temperate climes, but count as exotics in these parts, which is why petunias and geraniums also form part of the multi-hued line-up. The topiary section even features displays of blooms fashioned to resemble giant hearts, stars, igloos and pyramids. Take your time to enjoy the natural beauty of the park before the coach returns you to the ship. Please note: guests using a wheelchair are advised that they must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach and that wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift. Guests using a wheelchair who would like to participate in this tour are requested to contact the Shore Excursions’ Desk promptly once they are on board so that arrangements can be made.

    Treat yourself to the thrill of a lifetime on our Desert Dune Adventure. An exciting rollercoaster ride over the golden sand dunes of Arabia awaits you – all from the comfort of a modern four-wheel drive vehicle. Look forward to viewing the beautiful desert scenery at sunset from the top of the highest sand dune and taking stunning photos. The highlight of the tour then comes in the form of a delicious barbecue dinner, accompanied by the lithe movements of a belly dancer – all served up in a wildly romantic and relaxing setting. The entertainment programme also includes a henna artist to show the art of painting hands and feet with intricate henna designs, a popular practice in the region to mark special occasions. In addition, to round off this “Bedouin experience” you can even have a go at riding a camel. To bring this magical evening to a perfect close, you will rejoin your vehicle for your return journey to your ship. Please note: the driver will give information in English only.

    This enjoyable sightseeing tour of Dubai will give you a chance to discover the contrasts between old and new in this fast-growing and vibrant city, which is popularly known as the "City of Merchants" due to its long history of trade. Your tour will take you to the historical Al Bastakiya district of Dubai, a quarter known for its beautiful old houses along with their characteristic wind towers. These structures were designed to cool the buildings in the days before air conditioning. The tour also includes a visit to the Dubai Museum that is located at the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort, a river crossing in a typical abra boat and a stop at the aromatic spice market. Finally, you will visit the huge gold souk, which offers exquisite gold jewellery at prices lower than anywhere else in the world. The next stop on your tour is the world-renowned seven-star Burj Al Arab. Built on a man-made island, this luxury hotel is not only a truly fitting monument to a new millennium, but also the iconic location where you will stop for lunch. Once refreshed, you will continue on a coach to the incredible Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree. You will have a chance to take photos of the Atlantis Hotel where a further tour highlight awaits you: a visit to the Lost Chambers Aquarium. As you make your way through this exciting maze of underground passageways and tunnels, you will feel like you are visiting the ruins of the legendary city of Atlantis. Look forward to a stunning display of marine life, including clownfish, piranhas and colourful live corals. Before returning to the port and your vessel, the final stop on the tour is the Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping centre, where you will have time to explore scores of premium-brand shops. Please note: this tour is available on Fridays only. Due to the marked differences between outside temperatures and those found in the places visited as well as the air-conditioned tour vehicles, we recommend taking a light cotton jumper or cardigan for your comfort.

    Get an unhurried start to your day, and then acquaint yourself with Dubai – the City of Merchants – on this afternoon-to-evening excursion. Your coach will first take you to the lovely old quarter of Al Bastakiya to see the traditional houses with their wind towers, a clever means of pre-electric air cooling. Then it’s on to the Dubai Museum, located in the late 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort, which aims to illustrate Dubai’s traditional way of life. After then crossing the river in a typical abra boat and stopping at a spice market, you’ll get to browse Dubai’s huge gold souk – the best place to buy gold jewellery at rock-bottom prices. Dinner then follows at the iconic 7-star Burj Al Arab Hotel, a fabulous building with an inner atrium that soars to a dizzying 180 m in height. Moving on again, your next destination is the palm-shaped Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island, for a chance to first take photos of the magnificent Atlantis, The Palm resort hotel, followed by a visit to its marvellous Lost Chambers Aquarium. An artistically interpreted setting that resembles the mythical city of Atlantis serves as the backdrop to an amazing variety of marine wildlife that will swim around you as you move through a series of acrylic-walled underground passageways and tunnels.

Verenigde Arabische Emiraten

Fonkelende diamanten in de woestijn
Fonkelende diamanten in de woestijn

Dubai is eigenlijk slechts een van de zeven staten die gezamenlijk de Verenigde Arabische Emiraten of VAE vormen, een confederatie opgericht in 1971 na het vertrek van de Britten uit de Golf.

Technisch gezien worden de zeven emiraten als gelijkwaardig beschouwd en genieten ze een redelijke hoeveelheid wettelijke autonomie, in tegenstelling tot de verschillende staten van de Verenigde Staten. Dat verklaart waarom lokale wetten in Dubai zo anders zijn dan die in het naburige Sharjah.

Zoals u kunt zien tijdens een cruise naar de Emiraten heerst er in de praktijk echter een bepaalde hiërarchie. Abu Dhabi, duidelijk de grootste en rijkste van de Emiraten, fungeert als de hoofdstad (ook al is Abu Dhabi-stad amper half zo groot als Dubai) en heeft de meeste invloed op het nationaal beleid en levert de president voor de VAE.

Dubai staat op de tweede plaats, gevolgd door Sharjah en dan de andere emiraten van Umm al Quwain, Ras al Khaimah, Ajman en Fujairah, die grotendeels onontwikkeld blijven en die op sommige plekken zelfs verarmd zijn.

Het feit dat de eenheid zich staande heeft gehouden ondanks de grote meningsverschillen tussen Dubai en Abu Dhabi is te danken aan lokale diplomatie, hoewel het ook voor vijandigheid heeft gezorgd, waarbij Dubai, met zijn internationale status, zelfs niet de hoofdstad is van zijn eigen land.
