Meraas on track to build terminal
ASGC, one of the leading construction groups in the UAE, has been appointed to construct the new Dubai Cruise Terminal at Dubai Harbour, the first ever dedicated cruise port in the region, which when complete, will be the most advanced of its kind in the region.
Located in the heart of Dubai, in the vibrant area between Bluewaters and Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Cruise Terminal will become the main hub for international cruise ships visiting or deployed in the region. The Dubai Cruise Terminal is part of Dubai Harbour – the industry-defining maritime neighbourhood by Meraas.
Work conducted by ASGC 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, accounting to over 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.
The maritime tourism sector is expected to contribute more than $400 million to Dubai's economy by 2030.
