Middle East Cruise – Dubai & Abu Dhabi 🇦🇪 Oman 🇴🇲 Bahrain 🇧🇭 & Qatar 🇶🇦
Join us for a Day at Sea aboard the MSC Bellissima.
Before we go any further, we’d like to explain how we got onto this cruise. It all started a few years ago when one of our fans texted that they were coming to Switzerland. Those few comments turned into conversations, and shortly after, we met our beloved Uncle Pepe in Zermatt, CH.
From there, we did several trips together, a cruise around the Mediterranean, and a few other meetups. Once we were in Dubai, Pepe contacted us about a cruise around the Persian Gulf he found, and of course, we couldn’t say no to such a fantastic opportunity.
That’s why we’d like to express our gratitude to our adopted Uncle Pepe for making all this possible. @pepe.G6
So, let’s take it away.
It was our 5th day aboard the MSC Bellissima when we were pleasantly surprised with a delicious breakfast treat delivered straight to our rooms.
Croissants, fruit, meat, cheese, and freshly squeezed juice — there was something to everyone’s liking. However, Chloe still thought it would have been less messy if we just went to the buffet.
Once breakfast was over, we had a few more school and work tasks to go through, and then it was time to enjoy our daily activities. School time didn’t last much for Chloe as she took part in the Master Chef at Sea.
Next on our agenda was the Water Park found on the top deck aboard the Bellissima. We actually made Uncle Pepe go down his first water slide ever!
Later, Angelique and Pepe tried the F1 simulator, but we were most excited for the night coming up as we were seeing the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil at Sea. Needless to say, every second of that show was exciting and captivating.
For dinner, we tried Japanese Teppanyaki, and the entertaining and talented chef turned it into one of our favorite experiences aboard the cruise ship. The dessert was very unique too — we had a scoop of ginger ice cream on top of a slice of fried pineapple.
The next morning, we found a quiet, secluded area to have breakfast at, and then we were off on a day trip to the island of Sir Bani Yas.
The weather was quite windy, so we started with a short but bumpy sail to the island. On the island, we were welcomed by the crew that had organized different activities such as beach volleyball, Zumba classes, or even a safari tour.
We decided to soak up the sun on the sandy beach for a while, but the chilly wind soon forced us back on the MSC Bellissima.
We started the evening with an amazing show that featured some of the most elaborate costumes we had ever seen.
Then, it was time to enjoy some Spanish tapas for dinner and the inevitable Sangria. Over dinner, Julia suggested that you shouldn’t leave things unattended on the balcony as the wind may just blow them overboard.
We ended the night by learning a little dance routine and having fun on the dance floor.
Stay tuned for our next video coming up from Khasab, Oman!
