(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Cruise arabia partners showcase diversity of the region

cruise arabia the collective formed by oman’s ministry of tourism abu dhabi tourism & culture authority and dubai’s department of tourism and commerce marketing to promote the arabian gulf as a cruise destination announced that its official regional debut at arabian travel market (atm) in dubai last week (5-8 may dubai world trade centre uae) had been an unqualified success.

the cruise arabia partners showcased the diversity of the destination offering of the region — including its city skylines desert landscapes and beaches; the world’s most sophisticated malls and traditional souks; natural wilderness and adventure experiences; its art culture and heritage; and world-leading hotels and a burgeoning gastronomy scene — all underpinned by an exceptional welcome and hospitality in the region that stems from traditional bedouin culture. “we are glad that we participated in arabian travel market this year and had an opportunity to highlight the fact that dubai oman and abu dhabi together boast an excellent and evolving tourism and hospitality infrastructure with the opportunity to explore the many sights rich culture and romantic history of the arabian gulf. by communicating our shared strengths and the diverse tourism experiences in each of our three destinations as a single united force we can become more than the sum of our parts” said hamad mohammed bin mejren executive director business tourism at “since launching to the global cruise sector and travel trade professionals last year we have received a hugely positive response from the industry and by coming together at atm under a single banner it validated our collective commitment to growing the cruise sector across the arabian gulf.

“we also see significant opportunities to develop cruise tourism as a holiday of choice in emerging markets including among gcc travellers — something that was a topic of much discussion with the cruise industry at atm. cruising is a perfect choice for families travelling together — with most cruise companies offering fantastic deals that include food accommodation and free travel for children under the age of eight with prices starting at just 450. it also enables tourists to visit as many as four or five different destinations within a week and we see huge potential for growth at a local and regional level.”

the year has got off to a strong start for cruise arabia. after the successful global industry debut at cruise miami in march later in the month royal caribbean international announced its return to the arabian gulf for the 2015-2016 cruise season with splendour of the seas.
