Gulf countries join forces to boost cruise tourism

Four Gulf Cooperation Council states have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate to improve the region's cruise infrastructure and experience.


Abu Dhabi Maritime and Tourism Authority, Bahrain, Dubai and Oman signed an agreement at ITB Berlin to promote this region and attracting more cruise ship calls.


Key goals of the alliance under Cruise Arabia include improving port infrastructure and collaborating through promotional initiatives to support multi-nation experiences in the Gulf.


Issam Kazim, CEO of the Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing Corporation, said he is confident the partnership will elevate the region as a cruise hub.


“Dubai and its regional partners have already achieved significant success in the development of their cruise tourism segments, and cooperation will further enhance the regional offer and make it more attractive to cruise lines and passengers,” he said.
