The Majesty of the Middle East: Journey’s End

Making 9 landings in 5 different countries, The World will traverse the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf, giving Residents & Guests opportunities to step into deep antiquity and heights of modern sophistication.

This Arabian adventure begins in Egypt’s Sharm el Sheikh, the “City Of Peace” and continues southward to the diver’s paradise of Aqaba, Jordan. In Safaga, Egypt, Residents & Guests will visit the ancient sites of Luxor and Karnak before landing in Djibouti, where they will step even further back in time at Neolithic sites and the breathtaking geological scenery of steaming salt lakes. Winding amid the coastal forts and mountainous coastline of Oman, The World will dock in the capital Muscat before continuing eastward.

The final arc of the 2022 Journey will bring the Ship to the United Arab Emirates. Here The World will dock in the glorious capital city of Abu Dhabi before continuing into the Gulf to make its first-ever landings at Sir Bari Yas Island and Ras Al Khaimah, rich in archaeological wonders, protected wildlife, and culinary delights.
