First class service as always - why go elsewhere?

My wife and I are serial cruisers and always book with SCC, speaking to Joanne Henry. She always gives us a first class service and is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of cruising. She helps source us all the best deals snd nothing is too much trouble. Why go elsewhere ? 10/10 to SCC.

Yet again SCC have yet again excelled when dealing with our booking of 3 cruises from December 2021 to October 2022. Once again Joanna Sykus dealt with all ups and downs of booking a cruise at this difficult time in a professional, efficient and always pleasant way. We would recommend SCC to all who want to book a cruise

Itinerary for Arabian Wonders & World Cup

Day 1 - Fly UK to Dubai

Day 2 - Fly UK to Dubai & transfer to hotel / Enjoy Dubai

Day 3 - Enjoy Dubai

Day 4 - Embark Azamara Quest in Dubai

Dubai can already be mistaken for a movie set featuring a futuristic metropolis, and there are big plans still in the works. In the middle of the desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, there are so many building projects that foreign construction crews vastly outnumber citizens. Everything is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including manmade islands shaped like palm trees and the world’s first underwater hotel. It’s a striking collection of styles, including modern interpretations of Islamic architecture. If the planet’s largest shopping mall doesn’t appeal, traditional souks do still exist, including a gold souk housing over 200 retail shops.

Day 6 - At Sea

Day 7 - Muscat

An important trading port between East and West since the first century, Muscat's influence once extended as far as East Africa and Zanzibar. While much of the city’s construction is new, it all displays traditional Arabic stylistic elements, creating a handsome and cohesive whole that incorporates a rich history. Two seemingly invincible mountainside forts from the 1500s flank the palace of the sultan, though today they are both museums. A major highlight is the Muttrah Souq, Muscat's oldest market. Colorful and bustling, it is a fascinating place to browse, as well as to bargain for exotic spices, traditional handicrafts, or gold and frankincense.
