Well, he we are with the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel in the background.  When you see this, you know you are in Dubai!
We sailed in late in the day, and the first thing we saw was the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, on the horizon.
We docked, and got ready for our Dubai adventure
The hotel sent a car and driver to pick us up.
We do!
Our ship at port
As we entered the city, it looked very interesting to us to see signs in Arabic, and English, of course.

The Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) out from Jumeirah beach, and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. It is an iconic structure whose shape mimics the sail of a ship.
Luxury cars, just like in South Beach!  The hotel is known for its fleet of white Rolls Royces.
