Continue below to preview some of the best things to do on your MSC Cruises vacation to Dubai and India:


Explore Old Dubai
  • Old Dubai Walking Tour (Dubai, United Arab Emirates)
    If you’re a fan of sightseeing at a slower pace to absorb what you’re looking at, then a walking tour of Old Dubai will be perfect. You’ll begin the day with a drive to the Al Bastakiya district, with a short stop at the saltwater Dubai Creek. This area is known for its historic houses with wind towers – which are a method for cooling a building without electricity. Then you’ll pass through the textile souk and the heritage area before finishing your tour at the Dubai Museum.


Explore the Golden Sand Dunes in Dubai
  • Dune Safari (Dubai, United Arab Emirates)
    When you visit the desert, a thrilling dune driving adventure is almost mandatory. Ride with an expert driver in a modern four-wheel vehicle and experience the thrilling ride over Arabia’s golden sand dunes. Afterwards, relax at a secluded camp site to enjoy the breathtaking views of the desert.


Sheikh Zayed Mosque during Daytime
  • Sheikh Zayed Mosque (Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates)
    The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is one of the world’s best examples of neo-Islamic architecture and should be a stop for everyone visiting Abu Dhabi. It is one of the largest mosques in the world and has features like chandeliers beset with Swarovski crystals, marble-clad columns inlaid with mother of pearl, pools to reflect the beautiful arched walkways, and more.


Interior of a Jain Temple
  • Gods and Temples of Mangalore (New Mangalore, India)
    Tour the famous Jain temples of Mangalore, you’ll begin with a stop to see the statue of Bahubali – a Jain saint, then you’ll visit Dr. Soan’s farm where you’ll see exotic fruits and spices, then you’ll end your tour with a stop at the 15th century temple Moodbidiri which features over 1,000 pillars, none of which are alike. If you’re looking for a fascinating cultural tour – then make this a ‘must do’ on your Dubai and India cruise.


Nizwa Fort in Muscat, Oman
  • Fort and Castle Tour (Muscat, Oman)
    Your first stop on this fascinating tour of Oman’s most impressive structures is Nizwa Fort, which was built in the 17th century and designed to withstand the vibrations from 24 cannons. Climb to the top for a stunning panoramic view of Nizwa. Then you’ll head to the Jabrin Castle, one of Oman’s 17th-century fortifications. Finally, head back to Nizwa with a stop at the Bahla Fort – the first and oldest Omani fort to be built in the Islamic style.


Elephant Eating Grass in Thailand
  • Elephant Tour (Goa, India)
    Don’t miss your opportunity to see the gentle giants up close and in person at the elephant rescue tucked away in the rainforest of the Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary – Goa’s only national park. After leaving your ship, enjoy the hour-long scenic drive to the sanctuary, where you can soak up some of the gorgeous scenery. Once you arrive, enjoy an elephant ride to the water’s edge, and then you’ll have the opportunity to swim alongside them or even try giving them a cleansing scrub to go with their bath!
