Pick up and drop off is the cruise terminal. From here we will cruise through Jumeirah Area, the place where many Dubai residents like to live. After a photostop at Burj Al Arab, we drive to Palm Jumeirah, a manmade island where Dutch companies played a big role. The Marina is next and you will be amazed about the highrising buildings and waterway which were not there 20 years ago at all. After the Marina we get a beautifull view on the skyline of the city in the neighbourhood of the golfcourses. After a photostop at Burj Khalifa we drive through the local area where you can see the Sheikhs' palaces. Then it is time for the old town with the architecture of Bastakya or Dubai Museum. We cross the Creek by watertaxi and walk through the spice- and goldsouk before drop off at the cruiseterminal.
