Inchcape Shipping Services is celebrating another successful cruise season in Dubai and winning a Tourism Award for its Cruise Agency in the UAE.


With the 2012-13 cruise season in Dubai busier than ever, the capital has become an international hub for cruise tourism with the forthcoming season set to break new records with seven maiden ship calls also scheduled as it becomes a leading cruise destination in the Middle East.


ISS was awarded a Dubai Cruise Tourism Trophy for its role as a Cruise Agent to promote cruise tourism in UAE by Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing at a special ceremony, to thank partners and stakeholders, at Port Rashid.


The company provides ship agency to one of the three lines operating Gulf Cruise itineraries out of Dubai, with a total of 17 calls handled by ISS in the last season out of 63 home porting calls.


Said Sanjeev Sarin, General Manager - Marine Services, Dubai and Northern Emirates, ISS: “We were very happy to receive the award for our contribution as Cruise Agent over the past year and are looking forward to an even busier season as Dubai cruise tourism looks set to attract record numbers of tourists and port calls.


“2014 will also see the planned expansion of Dubai Cruise Terminal’s facility spanning over 27,000 square metres for cruise lines and visitors become operational. This will enable the terminal to easily handle complete passenger turnaround of up to five cruise ships simultaneously.”
