For thousands of years the focus of the frankincense trade route, Oman reveals itself as a land of friendly people and dramatic landscapes of deserts, mountains, and beaches peppered with forts and souks. Muscat, the capital city, stands out from other cities in the Gulf with its intriguing mix of the old and the new. Voyager Club guests will absorb the richness of its traditions and culture as we explore the city and surroundings and visit one of the regions fine museums.

We will begin our day with a drive by the Grand Mosque. This beautiful structure was announced by Sultan Qaboos bin Said in 1992 and completed in 2001. In his dedication, the Sultan expressed his hope that the mosque would be, “a center of culture and thought, to contribute in the rebirth of the Islamic heritage.”

Our next stop is the Bait Adam Museum, located on the ground floor of a private home, to see a unique collection of currency, paintings, photographs and guns and chat with the owner. As you arrive at the local family's house you will be warmly greeted with Arabic coffee and dates. The head of the family will talk about Omani life from ancient times to present.

We then will visit Muttrah Souq which is one of the most popular souqs in the Middle East. Walk through alleyways beckoning with a myriad of merchandise, from imported fabrics of exotic Oriental spices, perfumes and richly handcrafted artifacts.

We then drive to Barr Al Jissah Shangri-La Hotel. Enjoy a delightful luncheon at Al Tanoor restaurant. Al Tanoor serves the characteristic cuisines of the Arabian Gulf region in a traditional Omani atmosphere. The interior is designed with Arabian tents, pottery and vibrant colors which complement the enticing dishes that will be prepared for us.

After lunch we will have photo stop at the Al Alam Palace, the official residence of Sultan Qaboos, overlooking Muscat Bay. The architecture is a blend of oriental and occidental styles in rich hues of gold and blue, and is positioned between the two medieval fortresses of Jalali and Mirani, built by the Portuguese toward the end of the 16th century.

Finally we will visit a fascinating private museum, Bait Al Zubair, which allows amazing glimpses of the lifestyle and traditions of ancient and modern Muscat.

After the museum visit we will proceed back to the pier.
