The Middle East summer is a cruise-free period in the region due to the immense heat, but is traditionally a peak season for UAE residents booking fly cruises in Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.

With ongoing travel restrictions due to COVID-19, here are the cities from which UAE residents can go cruising for the summer, according to Dubai Media Office.

Each European city has a range of cruise ships homeporting in it.

For this list, we’ve focused on roundtrip cruises (cruises that begin and end in the same place, for ease of navigating travel restrictions), as well as cruises one week in length or under.
