Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from New York to Dubai starts from $853 with taxes for travel in mid-February (Gulf Air). Add to that $135 per person including tax for one night at Gold Swiss-Belhotel and $759 for a seven-night Persian Gulf/Gulf of Oman cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas, and you’d be paying $1,747 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $103 less than that, this package covers the flight, one night’s hotel accommodations, and a seven-night cruise, plus 21 meals, hotel-to-port transfer, and all taxes and fees, as well as offers the added convenience of all-in-one booking.

More Additional excursions/activities are available for a fee, including a five-hour Wonders of Dubai tour for $39 per person and a five-hour East Coast tour in Fujairah for $49 per person. Upgrade your room aboard Brilliance of the Seas for from $120 per person. Extend your stay in Dubai at the Gold Swiss-Belhotel for from $105 per person per night.
