Experience an exceptional New Yearʼs Eve with PONANT off the coast of the Persian Gulf.

In the Persian Gulf, cities spring up on the horizon like mirages in the huge and arid Arabian Desert. The contrasts between territories here are as dramatic as the turquoise sea that washes up on the golden rocky coastline. Set sail aboard Le Bougainville for an 8-day cruise, taking in prodigious metropolises, former trading cities and a natural environment that has been shaped by the stunning sun of the desert.

There are countless words to describe the Emirati cities: extravagant, modern and luxurious are just some of them. These masterpieces of futuristic architecture will immerse you in a fantastic and surprising universe. Dubai is awe-inspiring with its skyscrapers almost touching the stars, including the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, or its artificial islands in the form of a palm tree. As for the remarkable Abu Dhabi, it has chosen to focus on culture, which can be discovered in its splendid Louvre Museum or by visiting its Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, straight out the Arabian Nights.

The Sultanate of Oman is as discreet as its Emirati neighbours are bold. The sea maintains a special place in the kingdom of the legendary Sinbad the Sailor. The fishermen here perpetuate millennial traditions while the shipyards are still in operation. Between the sea and the desert, you will sail through the carved fjords of Musandam from Khasab and, leaving from Sour, you will experience the enchantment procured by the shade and cool of a wadi - lush oases planted with palm trees. On the Daymaniyat Islands, you can dive and snorkel in an exceptional natural sanctuary where turtles come to nest. In the capital, Muscat, the fragrances of the Orient and of incense will intoxicate you, the sparkling colours of the markets will captivate you, and the vibrant bustle of the souk will enchant you. The Near East evokes its incredible poetry.
