In 2019, 192 liners made their call at Zayed Port with 500,000 visitors disembarking at the state-of-the-art facility before the pandemic put a stop to passenger liners plying the oceans.
All passengers arriving in Abu Dhabi will need to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and have to follow all precautionary measures.
The pandemic had put a pause to the traditional Abu Dhabi cruise season, which usually runs from October to May, as visitors look to make the most of the emirate's winter sunshine.
A major attraction for visitors is Abu Dhabi’s first and only dedicated cruise beach stopover, the desert island day call to wildlife reserve Sir Bani Yas Island.
