Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On February - 21 - 2010

ExpertCruiser is off to Dubai for the Costa Deliziosa inaugural. Dubai is quickly emerging as a cruise destination and is growing rapidly with 250,000 cruise tourists visiting the emirate during 2009 — a 37 per cent increase on the previous year. And in 2010, Dubai is expected to host 120 ship calls with over 325,000 passengers when the Dubai Cruise Terminal becomes fully operational with the Costa Deliziosa christening.

The new terminal offers the capacity to handle four ships simultaneously, is expected to give the city’s cruise industry a big boost. The terminal will be outfitted with services to make the lives of travelers easier, such as money exchange, ATMs, a post office, duty free shop, souvenir shops, gift shops, and a business center with Wi-Fi.

    It’s really not surprising. Dubai is becoming somewhat of a fantasy land at this point, a millionaires playground. Everything being built there is about being bigger and more extravagant than everything else. Heck, I want to go there!
