AIDAbella celebrates first call in Dubai

AIDAbella Dubai - first call of the cruise ship

November 29, 2021 | On November 25, 2021, the cruise ship AIDAbella visited the new Dubai Harbor Cruise Terminal for the first time.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) are one of the most popular destinations for German holidaymakers in winter because of the moderate flight time of just under six hours, the pleasant summer temperatures and the many hours of sunshine. The result: AIDA Cruises will be organizing seven-day cruises with the AIDAbella until mid-April 2022 Dubai. Further destinations on these trips are Abu Dhabi and Muscat, the capital of Oman.

A selection of the most important Sights of the emirates is easy to reach from the new terminal of the Dubai Harbor. These include the Burj Al Arab, the world's largest ferris wheel, Ain Dubai, Bluewaters Island and Palm Jumeirah.

A highlight of this year's winter season is the EXPO 2020 world exhibition in Dubai. AIDAbella guests enjoy a long stay in Dubai City. The ship is in Dubai for three days at a time. This leaves enough time to explore the metropolis and the 438 hectare exhibition grounds with around 190 national pavilions. 

With its comfortable cabins, various restaurants and spacious outdoor areas on the sun deck with pools, bars and pool stage, AIDAbella offers its guests sufficient comfort to end the day relaxed after an eventful excursion to the highlights on land or the EXPO. 

The United Arab Emirates have been one of the destinations of the AIDA fleet since 2006. Together with its local partners, the Rostock cruise company has developed the region into one of the most popular cruise destinations for German vacationers in the winter months. In 2018 the Carnival Corporation, AIDA Cruises is one of the brands of the world's largest cruise company, entered into a strategic partnership with Shamal Holding. The aim of the partnership is to develop Dubai into the most important center for maritime tourism in the region. Part of the agreement between the two companies was the construction of the new Dubai Cruise Terminal. The terminal is much larger than the traditional Port Rashid terminal.
