Answering your questions about Dubai
Old meets new in spectacular fashion in Dubai. Every detail demands attention, from the Burj Khalifa (which is currently the highest building in the world, at a staggering 828m) to the audacious Palm, a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree and topped by extravagant hotels. This strikingly modern city in the middle of the desert is also renowned as a shopper’s paradise – the Dubai Mall is one of the largest shopping centres in the United Arab Emirates.
We cruise to Dubai between November and February, when temperatures cool off after the fierce summer months. With a desert climate, Dubai is warm and dry year-round. Temperatures hover around 25-30 degrees Celsius during cruising season, providing the perfect dose of winter sun when you’ve had enough of the chill in the UK.
Pack for the hot climate in Dubai by bringing plenty of shorts, vests and T-shirts to keep you cool. Sun cream, sunglasses and sun cream are also all essential. It’s worth noting that you should cover your shoulders and knees while visiting religious sites, and women should bring along a scarf or pashmina to cover their hair when necessary.
