Royal Caribbean International announced the deployment of Serenade of the Seas to Dubai for its December 2012 through April 2013 sailings.

Serenade of the Seas will replace Brilliance of the Seas, offering 17 sailings, departing every Monday on seven-night United Arab Emirates and Oman itineraries.

Additionally, Serenade of the Seas is offering Royal Caribbean cruise tours, allowing guests to explore and experience more inland attractions. The tours are escorted by an expert tour director and include transfers, transportation, hotel accommodations, breakfasts and select meals. Serenade of the Seas’ seven-night cruise offers the Arabian Explorer cruise tour, a four-night escorted land tour. The tour visits Dubai, Al Ain and Ras Al Khaimah and features ‘dune bashing’, dinner and entertainment at a Bedouin desert camp and a visit to the Hili Archaelogical Gardens and the Ali Ain National Museum.

The Serenade of the Seas seven-night itinerary includes calls at Fujairah and Abu Dubai in the U.A.E., as well as overnight stays in Muscat, Oman and Dubai at the conclusion of the cruise.

Furthermore, guests can choose a 15-night Mediterranean and Suez Canal transit cruise, departing December 2, 2012 from Malaga, Spain, to Dubai; and a return 15-night cruise to Barcelona, departing April 15, 2013.
