Cunard Line will package optional cruise tours
with Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria voyages, beginning this fall.
Tour packages range from three to four days and deliver a "lively
mix of iconic landmark and cultural activities," along with upscale hotel
accommodations, Cunard said. Guests can take the tours before or after the cruise.
Rome, Hong Kong, Dubai and Cape Town, South Africa are among
the tour locations.
In Dubai, the tour includes a visit to the 124th floor of
the Burj Khalifa Tower, a panoramic drive by Jumeirah Beach and Palm Island, shopping
at the Dubai Mall, a boat ride in a traditional abra, and a dhow cruise to the
Omani border, with swimming snorkeling and a traditional buffet. Accommodations
are at the Mercure Al Barsha Heights Hotel.
