(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) DP World-operated Mina Rashid in Dubai has been voted the World's Leading Cruise Port for the sixth consecutive year at the prestigious World Travel Awards 2013.

The award, acknowledged as the ultimate travel industry accolade, was received on behalf of DP World by Mohammed Al Mannaei, director of Mina Rashid, during the WTA's 20th Anniversary celebrations and Grand Final Gala Ceremony in Doha, in the presence of industry luminaries and top decision makers in global travel and tourism.

Mina Rashid, which began life as the region's first modern container port more than 40 years ago, competed and won against cruise ports from around the world, including Singapore, the Seychelles, Turkey, Mexico, Jamaica, Brazil, South Africa and the United States.

Mohammed Al Muallem, senior vice-president and managing director of DP World, UAE Region, said: "DP World is honoured to receive this recognition, which we won against some of the finest cruise port operators. We are also pleased that the Award has come as Mina Rashid is preparing to complete Phase 1 of the Dubai Cruise Terminal's ultra-luxury new facility in the coming weeks."

"DP World is committed to the continuous development of Mina Rashid to ensure its leading position in the region and the world."

Mina Rashid's new facility is designed to handle 7,000 cruise passengers simultaneously, with a seating capacity of over 2,000.

When completed, Dubai Cruise Terminal will be capable of serving 14,000 passengers simultaneously.
