We were worried that a 16-day cruise would be really long and start to get boring, but it passed super fast and before we knew it, the last days of our cruise were sadly upon us.
We arrived in Dubai around 2 PM and were greeted by a lovely landscape view of the Burj Khalifa towering over the skyline.
We hopped into a taxi to visit the tallest building in the world and surrounding attractions. Along the way, we saw some of Dubai's amazing architecture and were in awe seeing the large number of active sky-scraper construction projects underway.
At the Dubai Mall, we strolled through the surrounding areas and went inside to see some of the mall attractions like the Aquarium and the indoor waterfall. We grabbed a bite to eat while watching the world's largest light and sound show on the Burj Khalifa.
The next day we departed the boat and left our travel companions behind 😢 to continue their cruise to Singapore.
We strapped on our backpacks and went to explore “La Mer”, a new sea-side resort area close to the ship. It was really pretty, but crazy hot! We spent a couple of hours exploring and then headed back to the airport to made our way to London.. and back to reality.
