For the third time in the 2018/’19 cruise season, Doha Port received two mega cruise ships — Mein Schiff 4 and MSC Lirica — simultaneously carrying around 6,200 visitors, Mwani Qatar tweeted.

On Wednesday, RMS Queen Mary 2 marked its maiden voyage to Qatar, arriving at Hamad Port with more than 3,700 passengers and crew members. Measuring 345m long, Queen Mary 2 is the largest cruise ship to arrive on Qatar’s shores. Queen Mary 2’s arrival also marked the first time a cruise ship was welcomed at Hamad Port and followed on a series of developments by the Qatar National Tourism Council and its partners to grow the cruise tourism sector in Qatar and encourage more cruise liners to place the country on their itineraries.
