By Sea

Cruises
The Queen Elizabeth II was one of the first cruise ships to dock at the luxury ship terminal in Dubai, which was opened in March 2001. It now is a hotel docked in Dubai.

The terminal is equipped to handle two ships simultaneously and its deep basin gives cruise lines the options of brining in larger ships, especially in winter when it is a great alternative to the normally congested Caribbean Islands.

Dubai Port Authority +971 4 881 5000

Commercial Ports
There are several main international ports in UAE:

Port Location
Jebel Ali 30 km from Dubai city
Port Rashid Dubai
