JEDDAH, May 15, 2024

Cruise Saudi, responsible for the creation and development of the cruise industry in Saudi, has announced the commercial launch of its cruise line, Aroya Cruises, with trips now available to purchase via Aroya Cruises booking website.

As the first Arabian cruise line, Aroya Cruises is offering Arabian experiences for guests at sea and onshore. Pioneering in its design, it reflects Arabian generosity and Saudi’s famous Hafawa (Hospitality), providing a unique experience with passenger comfort at its heart - elevating joyful and memorable experiences for all guests.

With the ability to accommodate 3,362 passengers, Aroya Cruises is a floating resort, 335 m in length, with 1,678 cabins, including stunning balcony and sea view cabins, suites, and villas.

The entertainment concept has been curated to offer activities for all passenger groups. The ship has 20 entertainment venues across 18 decks that will allow passengers to indulge in an array of experiences, including shopping in the Souq Aroya retail area, and enjoy performances in the 1,018-seater Aroya Theatre which will captivate guests with headline entertainment, movies, and dedicated shows for children.

Families can connect in the Atrium Area which will host ‘Gathering Hubs’ and ‘Variety Acts’, and enjoy the 1,858 sqm ‘kids zone’, with a splash area equipped with water slides.

For those looking to relax and unwind whilst onboard, ‘Blossom by Aroya’ spa will have all passenger wellness needs covered. With a focus on immersion of the five senses – sound, sight, taste, aroma and touch – the facilities include a thermal suite, snow room, relaxation room, and treatment room, as well as a beauty clinic, beauty salon, men’s barbers and gym.

With five complimentary restaurants, 11 specialty restaurants, and 12 cafés and lounges, Aroya offers a wide variety of F&B options from across the globe, spanning Lebanese, Italian and Asian. Amongst these dining outlets is IRTH, the first Saudi restaurant at sea, featuring traditional Arabian dining.

Dr Joerg Rudolph President of Aroya Cruises, said: “The launch of our cruise line to commercial markets is an important milestone for both Aroya Cruises, and for the tourism landscape in Saudi.

“We are thrilled that the public can now book sailings with us as we strive to reinvent the meaning of holidays in Arabia.

“We have been steadfast in our mission to create a Remarkably Arabian cruise line offering for guests at sea and onshore, commercially, and sustainably, and we look forward to sharing this with our passengers”.

For an elevated offering, the Aroya VIP package, provides exclusive designated areas for a premium experience. With spacious and unique accommodation, outdoor lounges and exceptional dining, the Aroya exclusive experience provides the very best amenities and services for guests.
