Dubai Cruise Season Kicks Off

The 2016/2017 Dubai cruise season has officially begun, as tourists from around the globe seek some winter sun.

Following on from great success in the 2015/2016 run, whereby the number of passengers grew 19 percent and the volume of ship calls soared 24 percent year-on-year, two new operators are debuting in the region.

Both Norwegian Cruise Line and Thomson Cruises will make their maiden calls to Dubai during the term.

As the first-ever UK-based line to home port in the emirate, Thomson Cruises is expected to bring 25,000 tourists to the city through 12 calls at the port.
