PONANT invites you on a 9-day cruise between the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf, departing from Muscat. Come aboard Le Jacques-Cartier, and set off to discover the treasures of the desert of the Arabian Peninsula.

In the charming port of Sour, on the far south of the peninsula, you will discover maritime traditions that date back a thousand years. Today, they still build dhows there. These are the typical boats that were used to transport goods on the spice route.

Le Jacques-Cartier will then drop anchor in Khasab, the gateway to the sublime “fjords of Arabia” that you will be able to explore aboard a traditional boat, before setting sail for Doha, in Qatar. In this city blending tradition and modernity, next to the most recent skyscrapers, you will discover a superb museum home to treasures of Islamic art, and the sparkling colours of the Waqif souk which brings the heart of the old town to life.

You will then stop off at the nature reserve of the island of Sir Bani Yas, a veritable wildlife sanctuary.

Your ship will take you towards Abu Dhabi, the booming capital of the United Arab Emirates. You will be able to make the most of this day to visit the fantastic new Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum and the Grand Mosque, one of the largest in the world. 

Finally, you will reach fascinating and futuristic Dubai, the kingdom of excessiveness, the end of your cruise.
