Pullmantur Cruceros has announced an agreement with Emirates for 16,000 airline seats this coming winter for service between Madrid, Barcelona and Dubai.

Pullmantur will be introducing its new seven-day winter program sailing from Dubai starting Dec. 8 aboard the Horizon.

President and CEO of Pullmantur, Richard J. Vogel, commented: "We are very pleased to sign this partnership with Emirates, one of the most renowned and cutting-edge airlines in the world. It is a long-term agreement that contributes to (operating) stability, which is fundamental for travel agents, our passengers and, of course, ourselves."

Likewise, Vogel stressed that Emirates is renowned worldwide for its service: "Our guests will receive exceptional care, something which is hugely important for us since their experience begins from the moment they leave their homes; achieving maximum satisfaction is one of our priorities."

The so-called “Legends of Arabia” itinerary starts with an overnight in Dubai, then calls at Khasab and Muscat in Oman, Fujairah and Abu Dhabi.
