Things are only getting better and better for Dubai. It is already second busiest airport in the world and one of the most important transit point for air travelers. Now, Dubai and cruise tourism will see another dimension with an estimated 300,000 visitors on more than 20 global cruise lines arriving in this UAE port.
Dubai Cruise Tourism is part of the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and is hoping to realise these numbers.Dubai will continue to offer a diverse selection of destination for holiday makers, including tours of the Arabian Gulf – taking in the region’s most majestic cities – to longer voyages to the Far East, India and the Mediterranean.
“By selecting the Emirate as a home port, tourists will be able to take advantage of its spectacular attractions – from world-renowned skyscrapers and shopping malls to beaches and leisure venues – at both the beginning and end of their expedition,” read a statement from DCT.
Among the upcoming cruises with Dubai as its home port are Cruise Ship Costa Fortuna and Cost Neo Riviera travelling to two of Oman’s major cities, Muscat and Khasab, as well as Abu Dhabi. Others include the Aida Diva – which visits Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain – and the MSC Lirica – stopping at Abu Dhabi, Khor Fakkan, Muscat and Khasab.
To celebrate the success of the 2012-2013 season DCT held an appreciation ceremony recently to thank its partners and stakeholders for their crucial role in Dubai’s emergence as one of the world’s most attractive cruise destinations
