In January last year I was delighted to give lots of talks about Oman as ‘Guest Lecturer’ on an Arabian Gulf Cruise with the Island Sky as it cruised from Salalah to past Abu Dhabi.
This year in November the American company Zegrahm is doing a similar cruise travelling between Muscat and Bahrain. I will be on board for a couple of weeks to give talks to the passengers. The highlight for me of the longer cruises in the region is the voyage through the Arabian Sea between Sur and Salalah. This voyage doesn’t have that pleasure, but it is substituted with a visit to Doha and I’m anticipating that the highlight will be the Museum of Islamic Art there.
