A Royal Caribbean Excursion in DubaiLike0

I’ve collaborated with Royal Caribbean on a fantastic project to show you around on one of their Dubai excursions that you can book a holiday with them. Click here to find out more!

As I live in Dubai, I was able to drive straight to Atlantis but if you’re coming from a Royal Caribbean ship, you will have been dropped off at the DP World Cruise Terminal, Mina Rashid Road, where you will be picked up for any of the available excursions.

 

Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas ship will be sailing from Dubai from December onwards and doing 7-night trips around the Arabian gulf (Dubai, Khasab – Oman, Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Dubai) I personally have visited the Arabian Gulf on separate occasions and Oman is a must as well!

 

The Atlantis Hotel is located on the Palm Island and one of the greatest places to be in Dubai. It’s about 40 minutes away from the DP World Cruise Terminal and in October, the weather starts to get better so you start enjoying the beach season. Entering the waterpark was smooth, we had our tickets validated at the counter after handing over our printed booking. My 4-year-old daughter, Chloe, loved being in the water all day and most of all at the lazy river where we spent over one and a half hours on a donut floater, floating across the park. There are many different activities at the waterpark, from the kids castle to the different routes for the lazy river to flow through and from, to the shark slide and river safari. Anytime and any point, you could end your ride and walk out to the main pathway where you can sit down and relax with the wonderful backdrop of the Atlantis Hotel. Food stalls and different restaurants are aplenty, catering to all sorts of cravings. October is still a little hot, and we tend to forget to drink water, so remember to hydrate, bring a good water resistance sunblock, a hat and most of all, an underwater camera to snap away every fall when you attempt to climb the floater! It will bring out the child in you!

It would take you about 4 hours to go around the whole aqua park. The one I couldn’t dare do is the Tower of Neptune where you drop into a capsule into shark lagoon and into the other side of the water and if you are brave enough, you could do it all over again! Insider info: You will need to be at least 1.2 meters tall to ride the Tower of Neptune rides.

 

 

The day ended with a late lunch at one of their food outlets and Chloe definitely fell asleep straight away in the car on the way home!

 

If you’re traveling from the UK, you can hop on an Emirates flight and start your Royal Caribbean holiday from the ultra luxurious DP World Cruise Terminal.

 

I would like to thank Royal Caribbean for the wonderful experience on a great family day and I for one cannot wait to book a cruise in the near future!

  • Found an oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
The season has started in the UAE for desert drives and camping! 
Happy Sunday everyone!
  • Click link in bio! ⛵️ I've just announced new dates for our Sailing in The Arctic Wilderness in Norway with @travelwithtjd for February 2019!! Join me together with @dennisstever when we sail the arctic wilderness in search of the northern lights! 
There is a reason why I keep going back to the arctic: now I have the chance to show you. The adventure and feeling in the north surpasses any other I’ve ever experienced before, I have difficulty expressing my feelings that describes the true reality of arctic silence, subzero temperatures and open waters. #TravelwithTJD

  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
