Dubai Cruise Tourism (DCT) is a department within Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), and is responsible for globally promoting the emirate for cruise tourism. The Department also works in concurrence with DP World, the port and terminal operator, to ensure seamless operations and world-class experience is extended to its visitors at the state-of-the-art cruise terminals in Mina Rashid.
DCT is the point of contact for all concerned parties within the Cruise Tourism business including ship agents, tour operators and cruise lines, as well as other government bodies such as Customs, Immigration, Dubai Police, CID and DP World to ensure smooth, swift and safe port calls.
The purpose-built cruise terminals ensure that international visitors arriving to Dubai are well catered to and are offered world-class service based on a strong sense of Arabian hospitality.
Dubai has the most modern and the largest dedicated port facility in the Middle East for cruise operations spanning over 36,500 square metres on a pier stretch of 2200 metres. The facility enables Dubai to comfortably handle complete passenger turnaround of five cruise ships simultaneously, and helps to cement Dubai’s place as leading cruise hub of the region.
