Day 5: Dubai
Known as the 'Pearl of the Arabian Gulf', Dubai is one of the seven emirates that comprises the United Arab Emirates. With a mix of traditional architecture and glittering modern buildings, Dubai is a place of fascinating contrasts that can best be described as the 'Middle East meets Hong Kong with a little Las Vegas thrown in for style'. It is also the home of sand, sea and sun.
Day 6: Muscat, Oman
The Sultanate of Oman's capital, Muscat, has a magical feel. It is a combination of stunning deserts, mountains and beaches with all the comforts of a bustling, modern metropolis. It's also the meeting point of Asian, African and Arabic civilizations and this unique blend of cultures makes Oman a special place to visit and explore.
Day 7-11: Days at sea
The courts may be smaller than a real tennis court, but the play is just as intense. Rackets and balls are supplied on board, if you fancy a game... On the other hand, if you feel like relaxing, visit the onboard spa to experience true relaxation at sea!
Day 12: Suez Canal Transit
As the ship goes through the Suez Canal, guests can be out on deck throughout the transit, as it is one of the world's most fascinating maritime experiences, creating the bizarre impression that they are sailing right through the dry heart of the desert.
Day 13: Limassol, Cyprus
History mixed with a little hedonism is the holiday mixture which makes Cyprus so popular and, sat about halfway along the south coast, Limassol is the ideal base for cruise visitors to enjoy what the country has to offer.
Day 14: Haifa, Israel
Haifa, Israel's third largest city and one of its prettiest, is flanked by the Mediterranean Sea and crowned by Mount Carmel. From here you can visit the Holy Land, the Sea of Galilee and the mountain fortress of Masada.
Day 15-18: Days at Sea
What will catch your eye today? A designer scent, a new handbag or dress, or perhaps some new jewellery for a formal night? Naturally, if you need to stock up on everyday essentials, there’s a shop on board for that too.
Day 19: Cadiz, Spain
You cruise right into the heart of historic Cadiz as immediately across the busy Avenida del Puerto from the Spanish port is the main square and shopping area. From there, it is easy to find your own way around this compact city. Behind is the 18th century cathedral (El Nueva) and the view from the top is worth the long climb up its internal stairs.
Day 20-21: Days at Sea
Arcadia has a luxury spa, high-tech gym and sports facilities. Why not have a go at Yoga, Pilates and dance classes? And when the sun goes down theatre, comedy, cabaret and a casino invite you to let your hair down.

Disembark Arcadia in Southampton and enter back into reality!
