Tours are Sat-Wed between 8am-11am. Children under 10 are not permitted.

Both men and women should wear conservative clothing, with women's hair covered. Best to wear long-sleeved shirt, long trousers or long skirt

Everyone must be covered up, men and women. Ankles, shoulders, and wrists. Women should also take a light scarf to ensure that shoulders/neck/hair are covered. They WILL turn you away if they aren't satisfied. They have guards at the entrance ensuring that you are covered up completely.

Children have a bit more leeway, but they should generally follow the same guidelines.

Perhaps take one with you? Or if you have time in Dubai buy a cheap 'pashmina' in one of the souks (50dhs) or even supermarkets (15dhs).

Enjoy your cruise!
