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!

  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
  • Madeira Island is home to Europe's tallest sea cliff- more than 1,900 feet above sea level. The Madeira Archipelago is located in the Atlantic Ocean, in the African plate. 
Before my trip to Madeira, some people told me I only need 3-4 days to tour the island. It’s far from the truth and I’m glad I didn’t listen to them! It’s been a week here and there is still so much I feel I haven’t explored yet!! Would you visit Madeira Island? 🇵🇹
