Cruise Saudi’s new brand, Aroya Cruises, has unveiled its first cruise ship, which is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment.

The former World Dream of Genting Hong Kong is a 335-metre-long ship with 19 decks and 1,682 cabins, which the new Arabian cruise line hopes will “redefine Arabian holidays” when it sets sail from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in 2024.

“We are delighted to sail into the new year with the unveiling of our first Aroya Cruises ship,” said Lars Clasen, CEO of Cruise Saudi, which was launched in 2021. “This marks an exciting milestone for Cruise Saudi in creating a world-class cruise industry in Saudi, whilst offering a new way to holiday in the kingdom for locals. We look forward to welcoming the first passengers onboard.”
