DP World, operator of Dubai Cruise Terminal and Port Rashid, said it would significantly cut port fees for cruise companies in an effort to extend the cruise season in the Gulf by up to 2 months.

According to Omar Sharif Al Marzooqi, manager, cruise business & operations at Mina Rashid, DP World, the current Middle East season generally runs from November through April, and they’d like to see cruise companies homeporting in the region longer.

He added that the discount would apply to all cruise ships making port calls in port Dubai between October or May.
