Dubai Harbour will have a second cruise terminal in addition to the one already revealed in January 2017, Dubai-based holding company Meraas informed.

Dubai Harbour will be the first cruise destination to build two terminals simultaneously which when completed will accommodate 1,200,000 passengers annually,” the company said.

Each terminal will be approximately 14,000 square metres in size with one single apron of 900-metres.

The addition of a second terminal is intended to build on Dubai’s reputation as a leading tourism destination, while capitalising on strong growth in the cruise industry globally, the company said. Industry data suggest that over 40 million people will travel by cruise annually by 2030, up 40 percent from 24 million in 2017.

By creating a world-class destination that appeals to people around the globe, Dubai Harbour represents an opportunity to achieve economies of scale and drive growth in the maritime tourism sector. It will also help maintain Dubai’s status among the world’s top tourism destinations for generations to come,” Abdulla Al Habbai, Group Chairman at Meraas, said.
