Arabian cruising starts and ends on a positive note at Seatrade Middle East Cruise Forum

Thank you to everyone that attended the recent Seatrade Middle East Cruise Forum, held in Doha, Qatar with hosts, Qatar Tourism Authority.

The two-day Forum brought together ministers, ports and immigrations officials and industry stakeholders to a thought-provoking summit which set the platform for further discussion with tourism authorities, tour operators and other industries involved in the cruise tourism sector...and with a vested interest in increasing cruising to the Arabian Gulf.

The event started on a high with news that passenger visits had topped the 1 million mark to the region for this season (2015/2016) and led to topical issues that included: Continuing growth, infrastructure, visas, security, source markets and product differentiation.
