Red Sea Cruises: About the sea and its cruise


The Gulf of Arabia or Arabian Gulf is also known as the Red Sea, which is an enclosed body of extremely saline sea water in the Indian Ocean and lies in between Asia and Africa. The Red Sea is surrounded by deserts and semi-deserts and is influenced by the southwesterly and northwesterly monsoon seasons and has very low rainfall on the coast as well as the sea.

The birth of the Red Sea came about by the Red Sea Rift that led to the splitting of Arabia from Africa. It is suggested that as the Sea is still widening, it has the potential to become an ocean. However, the sea is popular among the tourist for its amazing sport diving or recreational diving sites like the Dolphin Reef, SS Thistlegorm, Egypt's Rocky Island along with the spectacular and less known sites such as Angarosh, Sanganeb, and others in Sudan. There are many popular tourist resorts that are drawing more tourists every year. Taking these facts it is not surprising that many people are now taking advantage of the Red Sea cruises to visit the sea and the bordering lands.

The comfort and advantage of cruising often outweighs other factors making more tourists opt for Red Sea cruises so as to have the best of both worlds-- comfort traveling and visiting exotic ports of call on the Red Sea.
