A Gulf Cruise is on its way!
Qatar is launching a brand new cruise line that will connect the capital of Doha to the nearby countries of Oman and Kuwait. The 145 metre-long ship, called the Grand Ferry, will be able to accommadate up to 900 passengers and 670 cars.
Said to be a first of its kind to operate in the Gulf, the cruise liner has ten decks and more than 270 cabins. Additional facilities include cafes, on-board entertainment, a children’s room and a helipad.
Sail time is predicted to be about 20-25 hours to the ports of Sohar in Oman and Kuwait City; fares have yet to be announced.
A maiden voyage is expected to set sail later this January.
