United Arab Emirates

This Costa Cruise projects us into the magical atmospheres of “The thousand and one nights”. A cruise to the United Arab Emirates is a unique way to experience the sparkling splendour of the Middle East. Our holiday in the UAE offers hundreds of kilometres of heavenly, unspoiled beaches for breathtaking dives, peaceful oasis wrapped in the timeless charm of the desert, gravity-defying architectural wonders and a culture extraordinarily rich in tradition. With the Costa shore excursions available we can discover the Grand Mosque of Abu Dhabi, a sheikh dinner at the Emirates Palace, the Yas Marina circuit where the Formula 1 racing cars speed around the track, the glitzy modernity of Dubai, the centres of Fujairah and Khor Fakkan and the opportunity to spend a magical night in the dunes and wake up watching the sunrise in the desert.

Ports featured

Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is a miracle on sand. The majestic white marble mosque coexists with the mirrors of the skyscrapers. All surrounded by desert.


Dubai is a contrast: sparkling skyscrapers, among the highest in the world, and immediately behind the endless and silent desert, ideal for a sunset dinner.
