New data from Qatar Tourism (QT) disclose that the country welcomed 253,191 cruise guests during its 2022 – 23 season (December 2022 and March 2023), an increase of 151% compared to the previous season (100,500 visitors).

This sharp fellowship in visitor figures is particularly impressive given that this year’s cruise season began later than usual (in December rather than October), as the Doha port was hosting floating hotels during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament to accommodate visitors and fans.

Among the number of cruises, visitors welcomed this season, 37,144 were turnaround passengers, a 790% increase from last season’s numbers (4,172 passengers)

Qatar received a total of 54 calls during the 2022 – 23 cruise season, both transit and turnaround, which marks a 59% uptake on last year.

Qatar’s cruise industry has shown remarkable resilience and growth despite the challenges posed by the Covid – 19.

The next Qatar Cruise Season 2023 – 24 begins October 8, 2023. Cruise passengers arriving in Qatar through Doha Port are welcomed in a brand–new Grand Terminal that features state–of–the–art – facilities.
