Your epic trip will start off with two nights in glamorous and futuristic Dubai where the sun shines all-year-round. Spend your time relaxing on one of the many golden-sand beaches or perhaps enjoy some retail therapy in one of the amazing malls.
In Dubai you'll board Norwegian Jade, a beautiful ship that was given a contemporary update in 2017, and set sail for the Indian Ocean.
The ship features dozens of restaurants and bars, live music and theatre productions, a swimming pool, a casino and more. You certainly won't be bored.
