Dubai to build the region’s most advanced cruise terminal at Dubai Harbour

Published on : Wednesday, July 3, 2019

Dubai will build the region’s most advanced cruise terminal at Dubai Harbour with cruise tourism gaining speed along the lines of the government policy under which maritime tourism will contribute Dh1.5 billion to the emirate’s economy by 2030.

 

The new Dubai Cruise Terminal will create a unique entry experience for all cruise ship passengers arriving in the emirate. The terminal, located between Bluewaters and Palm Jumeirah, can accommodate complete passenger turnaround of two mega cruise ships at the same time, accounting to over 15,000 guests at its 300,000 square feet combined floor area.

 

Dubai is on in its way to become one of the most favoured destinations amongst the international cruise lines and cruise tourists, welcoming over 725,000 cruise tourists to the city during the 2017-18 season via 150 ship calls, including more than 20 world-class cruise lines. This shows an increase of over 15 per cent compared to the same period last year.

 

“Over the past few years, we have seen an increasing number of reputable cruise liners visiting [Dubai] and our ongoing partnership with key stakeholders is testament to delivering top-class cruise facilities and providing distinctive services to enhance the tourists’ experience, marking Dubai as a significant destination for cruise tourists worldwide,” said Jamal Alfalasi, director of Dubai Cruise Tourism.
