August 2019

Master developer Meraas has appointed UAE-based contractor ASGC to construct the new Dubai Cruise Terminal at Dubai Harbour.

Located in the heart of Dubai, between Bluewaters and Palm Jumeirah, the Dubai Cruise Terminal will become the main hub for international cruise ships visiting or deployed in the region. This world-class addition to the city’s tourism infrastructure comes in line with the Dubai Tourism Strategy 2020 that focuses on making the emirate the first choice for international leisure and business travellers.

Bishoy Azmy, CEO of ASGC, states that his company is committed to delivering this project utilising the latest construction processes. ASGC’s scope of work on the project will include the construction of two main cruise terminal buildings strategically positioned on a quay of approximately 1 km, in addition to service buildings, a central unit building with all associated fit-out works, external works, and all fixtures, fittings and equipment.

With a combined floor area of 300,000 sq ft, Dubai Cruise Terminal will create a unique, iconic entry experience to all cruise ship passengers who arrive in the emirate, and will have the capacity of accommodating complete passenger turnaround of two mega cruise ships concurrently, totalling more than 15,000 guests.

Each cruise terminal will create an environment of complete luxury and comfort for passengers and crew alike, with simplified processes, seamless flow as well as leisure and retail offerings.
