This trip ticks off some of Abu Dhabi’s grandest and most historic landmarks, with a couple of new bits thrown in, too. Things get started for a photo stop at the snowy-white Sheikh Zayed Mosque. To give you a taste of its size, it was built using 100,000 tonnes of marble, and has space for up to 40,000 people. Next, you’ll drive through some of the city’s most exclusive neighbourhoods on your way to the Emirates Palace. You won’t be checking in at this luxury beachfront hotel, but the red-hued walls and neatly-clipped gardens make it well worth a photo stop. Once you’ve grabbed a few snaps, it’s back on the bus for a scenic drive along the Corniche – a waterside road which curves around the skyscraper-backed bay. You’ll get the chance to grab a few more holiday shots of Al Marina, an islet connected to the city by a narrow causeway, then it’s back to Port Zayed to board the ship.
