Mina Rashid’s stellar performance and excellence were recognised for the 15th consecutive year at the annual World Travel Awards 2022.

Mina Rashid has won two prestigious honours – the Middle East’s Leading Cruise Port at a ceremony held on 23 October in Jordan and the World’s Leading Cruise Port on 11 November at the Grand Final Gala Ceremony in Oman.

Mina Rashid’s stellar performance and excellence were recognised for the 15th consecutive year at the annual World Travel Awards 2022.

With an ever-increasing capacity and constant innovation, Mina Rashid has become a preferred destination for cruise lines around the world. At the same time, it has transformed Dubai from a facilitator of dhow-enabled trade to a global community hub for the maritime sector.

Hamza Mustafa, Chief Operating Officer of P&O Marinas, a DP World company said, “Mina Rashid’s robust port infrastructure and state-of-the-art terminal facilities have reinforced Dubai’s status as a global tourism hub and a key gateway for regional and international cruise itineraries. With these awards, we have once again proved our mettle as the key pillar of Dubai’s tourism sector. But we won’t stop there. We will always look for ways to enhance our services, find new strategies to power the growth of our stakeholders, and encourage cruise travellers to enjoy our city from the sea.”

“This represents a 100 percent increase over last season. Additionally, passenger and crew inflows are forecast to rise to around 600,000, more than double the previous season,” explained Mustafa.

Since its opening in 1972, the port has played a pivotal role in Dubai’s development as an international destination of choice for business as well as travellers. It has enabled the diversification of Dubai’s economy and reduced the city’s dependence on oil revenues by turning it into a thriving commercial, logistical, and tourism hub of the region.

As Dubai continued its evolution as the leading regional hub for tourism, Mina Rashid underwent a unique transformation. In 2008, the port was converted into a cutting-edge terminal for cruise ships.
