Abu Dhabi's Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) has chartered two cruise ships which will be berthed in the UAE capital as floating hotels from
tomorrow until the end of February to ease heightened accommodation demand in the city as a result of major events and exhibitions.
The 401 room New Flamenco, operated by Florida's Elysian Ship Management Inc, and the 274 room Ocean Majesty, operated by Majestic International Cruises based in Greece
, complete with a combined crew complement of around 450, will offer convenient accommodation during their berth at the capital's Mina Zayed Free Port.
The port is just five minutes from the city center and 15 minutes from the new Abu Dhabi New Exhibition Center.
