Cruising from Dubai? Take a look at the Cruises Forum!

Hello! Thought I'd drop by and introduce myself.

I'm the new TripAdvisor Destination Expert for Cruises. That forum has been around for years, but it's hard to find. The TripAdvisor button for Cruises will take you to CruiseCritic instead, which is owned by TripAdvisor. So, please make a note of this link:

tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g1-i10703-Cruises.…

With Royal Caribbean Brilliance of the Seas cruising weekly from Dubai, plus Costa Luminosa and Deliziosa making regular stops, Dubai has exploded as a cruising destination. Any questions you have about ships, cabins, and cruising in general would be welcome.

Although I don't yet have a cruise booked originating from Dubai, another of our board regulars will be sailing on Brilliance in a few weeks. So, please come on over and post, and you'll get knowledgeable responses.

Hope to see you soon! *fannish*

Thank you for this - much more appropriate for many posts than the Dubai forum!

I don't think it's an issue per se - I think that will be their normal procedure.

Flight arrives in Dubai early so you get taken somewhere until ship is ready for boarding

having just returned from cruising out of dubai, dont expect anything too spectacular. the stop offs are mediocre to say the least, muscat in oman was nice but fujairah and bahrain i wouldn,t give u tuppence for, abu dhabi was good and dubai is amazing place, make sure u go to the dubai mall and see the aquarium on 2 floors in the middle of a shopping centre, complete with a great white shark. the burj khaliffa is an amazing building,makes u giddy just looking up to the top.and also the dancing fountains after dark are superb.
