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!

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is. 
This is called The Mirrorcube - camouflaged mirrored walls reflecting the surrounding. I can’t wait to return!
  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
