lilybob:Should you decide to visit, perhaps your doctor could prescribe an alternative medication for the short time that you would be here. I have family in a similar situation and that is what they do when they visit. It is an interesting city as are the neighboring emirates. Visitors sometimes miss the historic and cultural parts and only see the malls and the beach. Happy planning!
Thanks for the site. What a long list.
The medication I take for joint pain is on that list.
Still considering if to go on a cruise out of Dubai. Sounds like a very interesting city.
lilybob:Besides Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Fountains, Burj al Arab, and the Bastakiya area near the creek in Dubai, a couple of other "must see" things in the UAE are the Sheik Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi (quite beautiful and welcoming to all) and the oasis city of Al Ain which is about 1.5 hours from either Dubai or Abu Dhabi. If you have specific interests or questions please ask and I will try to answer.
Excellent suggestion re medication. I can use a cream that is over the counter.
Bought some books on Dubai and surrounding area. Sounds fascinating.

What is the best way to see this in the one day our ship will be in port there?
Hi,What date are you sailing in February. Have just booked for 25th Feb 2013 sailing. Will be spending some time prior to and after the cruise with son and family who have been posted to Dubai with his job for 5 years. Am taking this cruise to fulfil a promise to my husband. He passed away recently and it had been his wish to sail from Dubai. Am a little wary about travelling alone for the first time in 45 years but having done 15 cruises already I think I know what to expect! Dubai is a wonderful place - it is not just shopping, shopping (although I did find some bargains in the gold shouk whilst there at Easter). It is fortunate that there will be time to tour Dubai before sailing and also at the end of the cruise according to your flight schedules. I know you will have a great time. Also do not worry too much about the medication side - as other posts have suggested just make sure you get a note from your doctor to verify you need certain medication. I had no trouble at all and I have to take very strong painkillers for osteoarthritis and spondylosis.
I am booked on the upcoming February 2013 Dubai cruise and would like some suggestions on sites for Muscat & Fujairah.
Excited to Go!
