MSC Cruises Launches New & Exciting Destination Island in the Emirates

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Guests sailing on MSC Fantasia starting in December 2016 can look forward to exploring Sir Bani Yas Island- a stunning tropical paradise off the southwest coast of Abu Dhabi, exclusively owned by MSC Cruises. This 1.5 mile stretch of land filled with exotic seaside views, hundreds of swaying palm trees, shaded cabanas, and 387,500 square feet of fine golden beaches is the perfect way to experience the unique beauty of the natural surroundings in the Emirates.

Sir Bani Yas Island is an exclusive tropical beach oasis with natural sunbathing spots, sun-drenched walking trails, a large wildlife reserve and ongoing archaeological excavation sites meant to enrich the cultural discoveries of guests sailing on MSC Fantasia. As you curiously tour the ruins of an early Christian monastery site from 6th century AD, explore the biodiversity of the Arabian Wildlife Park, and mountain bike your way to expedition sites, you will understand why this island is a unique destination experience for anyone who embarks on a cruise getaway in the Persian Gulf with MSC Cruises.

MSC Fantasia, one of MSC Cruises newest and largest ships offers 1,250 staterooms with a touch of Arabian luxury only a regional award-winning cruise line can deliver. Spend a full day on Sir Bani Yas Island and enjoy delectable finger foods and refreshments, entertainment lounges, and relaxation havens offering soothing massages from beachside cabana huts. Drink packages will be extended onshore for seamless indulgence both on and off the ship. Sports facilities are also available for beach volleyball, tennis and other seaside activities. Art lovers can look forward to exploring local art and crafts in Bedouin tents mounted for this specific purpose.

Book your next 7-14 night Middle East cruise for winter 2016/2017 on MSC Fantasia, and soak in this brand new destination working its way up to the top of cruise destination rankings all around the world. Give us a call today on 1-800-377-9383.
