If you fancy hopping on a cruise ship but don’t have the luxury of time to travel the globe, Dubai’s iconic Queen Elizabeth 2 is what you’re looking for. Permanently docked at Port Rashid, the 13-deck hotel is offering special deals throughout January so staycationers have even more reasons to board the historic vessel.
Guests can now enjoy a two-night stay on the ship for the price of one – from Saturday to Wednesday.
Whether you choose a cosy standard room or a luxurious cabin with a balcony, you’ll be getting more for your dirhams. Even better, those looking to dine can get one lunch or dinner buffet free, when one meal is bought at Lido restuarant.
From Dhs400. Until Jan 23. Available Sat-Wed. Port Rashid, Deira (04 526 8888).
