Featured Ports

In Partnership With

Muscat, Oman

With a skyline less vertically inclined than those of other Persian Gulf capitals, Muscat’s architecture reflects the expansive natural landscapes and rich seafaring history of this port city. From the quiet elegance of earth-colored mountainside villas to the understated splendor of its grand mosque and Royal Opera House, Muscat exudes self-assuredness, tranquility and stateliness..
In Partnership With

Salalah, Oman

Tucked between the Dhofar Mountains and the Arabian Sea, subtropical Salālah is the gateway to Southern Oman’s pristine white-sand beaches, dramatic natural beauty and ancient frankincense-trade routes. Each year from July to September, the rains of the khareef, a monsoon that blows in from the Indian Ocean, transform the region into lush oases dotted with seasonal waterfalls and grazing camels. Spend an afternoon strolling under coconut palms and frankincense trees on Salālah’s hidden beaches or follow in the footsteps of famed travelers like Marco Polo and the Queen of Sheba at the region's four \"Land of Frankincense\" UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
