Best Persian Gulf cruise lines

Mid-market cruise lines

Several 2,000-plus-passenger ships are based in Dubai during the peak winter season. Costa has two: the Deliziosa and Luminosa cruise ships. Royal Caribbean has one: Brilliance of the Seas.

Those ships specialize in 7-night Persian Gulf cruises that start and end in Dubai. They are port intensive, with either zero or just one sea day. Many passengers tag on pre-or post-cruise days for seeing Dubai.

Luxury cruise line

Silversea includes Dubai and other Persian Gulf ports on its extended itineraries that include Mumbai, India. You can just book its 7-day Dubai and Persian Gulf segment if space is available.
