We used the free shuttle bus provided by P&O Cruises to visit Dubai Mall during the day on the 27th.
As arranged by iglucruise.com our chauffeur driven limo arrived on time the day after to transfer us to our hotel, the Arabian Courtyard, in Dubai old town. No sooner had we checked in than we were collected by Margaret's cousin and family, who took us on yet another fabulous day out.
After collecting our friends from their hotel, it was off for a drive down the famous Palms development before moving on to Madinat Jumeirah, where, after a pleasant cruise on the Abra, we had lunch in one of the many restaurants.
The day finished with coffee at the Heritage Village near the creek.
Back at our hotel, we walked around the old town before turning in.
We now have a full day on our own to explore on the 29th, before we fly home on the 30th courtesy of Virgin Atlantic. All in all, a fabulous holiday.
