Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal

New Cruise Terminal Opens at Zayed Port

THE ABU DHABI CRUISE TERMINAL HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY INAUGURATED, MARKING A MAJOR

LANDMARK FOR CRUISE TOURISM IN THE UAE CAPITAL AND THE ARABIAN GULF.

With the launch of the permanent facility, Zayed Port is expected to witness a fivefold increase in the number of passengers and ships during the current season in comparison to its first term of 2006/2007.

Growth projections for the emirate’s cruise sector anticipate more than 300,000 visitors by the 2019/2020 season, further propelling Abu Dhabi’s ambition to establish itself as a leading winter sun cruise destination.

The first ship to use the new terminal for homeporting is MSC Cruises’ MSC Musica which is expected to be followed by other international vessels.
