ROYAL CARIBBEAN: Serenade for Dubai

Royal Caribbean’s cruise ship Serenade of the Seas (2003/90,090gt) is to replace sister-ship, Brilliance of the Seas (2002), in Dubai for the winter of 2012/13 on completion of a season of 12-night Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona.

The 2,000-passenger vessel sails from Malaga on 2 December 2012 on a 15-night repositioning voyage to Dubai, which includes a transit of the Suez Canal, and then she operates a schedule of 17 cruises until 15 April 2013, when she sails the same itinerary in reverse, back to Barcelona. The weekly cruises sail from Dubai every Monday to Fujairah and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, overnight in Muscat and again in Dubai on the last night.

Brilliance of the Seas has been based in Europe and the Middle East since April 2008 and will undertake her third consecutive winter out of Dubai this year. In winter 2012 she returns to the Caribbean, for weekly cruises from San Juan, calling at Tortola, St Maarten and St Kitts.
