Queen Mary 2

Queen Mary 2 to make maiden Abu Dhabi call

The most expensive ocean liner ever built will make her debut call in Abu Dhabi on the 29th January. The Queen Mary 2 will call at the United Arab Emirates' Mina Zayed cruise terminal this week.

The flagship vessel of the Cunard Line will call at Abu Dhabi as part of her 2013 World Voyage. The World Voyage will see the liner go on a 106 day trip taking passengers from Southampton to the Mediterranean and the red sea before heading through the Indian Ocean to the Far East and China, Australia, New Zealand, Mauritius and South Africa.

The $880 million cruise liner will arrive this week in Abu Dhabi with 2,620 passengers. Tourism officials hope the arrival of the ship will help increase Abu Dhabi’s targets of receiving 180,000 passengers this cruise season and increase the number of passengers by 39 per cent in 2014. Leisure product development manager for Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority, Noura Al Dhaheri said that attracting “a cruise liner of this calibre is a tremendous endorsement of Abu Dhabi‘s rising status as a global cruise destination and solid sector partner.”

“Cunard has a reputation of selecting only the very best destinations for their world cruises, and we believe its confidence in our destination will act as a catalyst for other lines to consider adding Abu Dhabi to their itineraries, further propelling our cruise credentials.”

The Queen Mary 2 was built in 2004 to replace the iconic Queen Elizabeth 2 and is the first major ocean liner to be built since the QE2 in 1969.
