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!
