Doha Port, now a turnaround hub, is fast emerging as a prominent luxury cruise destination in the winter cruise season.


Doha Port new passenger terminal

Doha Port will inaugurate its new Grand Terminal  in 2022. It can welcome up to 12,000 passengers per day, with dual terminals serving two berths. 

Covering more than 24,000 square metres, the terminal offers passengers the same level of service and facilities as Hamad International Airport, including seamless immigration and customs, foreign exchange services, taxi and bus stands, a Duty-Free shop, a café, specially-designed waiting areas for cruise passengers and staff, along with other tourist information services.

The terminal will uniquely serve as home to the region’s largest aquarium within the new City Gallery, which will be open to the general public, offering an attractive year-round activity for the local community. It will also host open-air events on the 2nd floor, with a large terrace stretching across the two terminals.

Collaborative efforts by Qatar Tourism and local authorities, including Immigration, Customs and Mwani Qatar, have made the disembarkation process quick and hassle-free for passengers arriving at Doha Port, enabling them to start enjoying the destination’s tourism offerings without wasting any time.

Qatar has also partnered with MSC Cruises to charter two of its ships during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, providing fans with all necessary accommodation arrangements.
