At the beginning of 2019 we were very impatient because in just a few days we were going on the journey of our lives. We ordered with the German company Berge & Meer a combined trip: 1 week cruise Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Khasab and Muscat and from there we were to fly to Thailand to enjoy the Indian Ocean in Khao Lak.

We paid 1400 euros per person for this whole combined holiday, and during the cruise we had all inclusive, while in Thailand we had breakfast included. Is very cheap to eat in Thailand so it was ok just with breakfast,because during the day we where always far away from the hotel.The only problem here is that, of course, I did not have visits included, so we had to take some more money out of our wallets for them.

In this article we will tell you about the cruise, and about Thailand-Khao Lak we will write another article.

Top hotels we recommend in Dubai:Mandarin Oriental Jumeira,Jumeirah Emirates Towers,Grosvenor House, Park Hyatt Dubai

After this tour our ship Costa Mediterranea sailed to Khasab, but as we had only a few hours to visit the city and the city was small, we decided to rest and explore the ship. This is the ship where we spent 7 beautiful days:

During the night the ship sailed to Muscat-the capital of Oman.We had befriended an older German couple and we all 4 took a taxi to visit Muscat. The taxi driver, very patriotic and friendly made us a fair price and took us to visit all the main attractions of the city:The Royal Palace,The Forts and the Mosque:

The next day the ship made its way back to Dubai where we would have another day off, so we had already ordered a tour that included: entry to Burj Khalifa and entrance to the aquarium in Atlantis the Palm and Dubai Marina.
