According to the World Travel Awards polls, Mina Rashid has been the Middle East's leading cruise tourist destination for the past eight consecutive years, and is steadily gaining traction as a leading destination globally. Currently, Mina Rashid can handle seven mega-cruise vessels or 25,000 passengers at once. The port’s Hamdan bin Mohammed Cruise Terminal is the world’s largest single, covered cruise terminal facility capable of handling 14,000 passengers a day. Mina Rashid is currently undergoing an expansion by building a world class recreational area that will symbolise Dubai’s rich cultural heritage and solidify the terminal as one of the world’s premier cruise tourism hubs. Due to high demand, it is also working to provide improved berthing services for private yacht owners looking to make Dubai a home for their vessels.
