In the first of its kind in the Kingdom, cruise ships launched in the Red Sea as part of the “Break Free” summer season initiative, being held from June 25 to Sept. 30, 2020, covering 10 tourist destinations around Saudi Arabia.
The initiative launched by the Saudi Tourism Authority is part of the Kingdom’s efforts to provide exceptional tourism experiences through which it seeks to highlight the tourist treasures in the Red Sea and enable tourists to enjoy the huge tourism potential that lies along the Red Sea coasts in the Kingdom.
Cruise ships are to provide a wider array of options and packages, as the authority called the topmost cruise ship companies in the world to operate luxury ships in the Red Sea coasts in the Kingdom with different paths as well as different stations.
The ships will also provide the best services and meet all expectations and aspirations of Saudi tourists.
The authority also aligned with the Ministry of Health; tour operators; and other parties to put in place the most stringent protocols and corrective actions. This is to safeguard the health of passengers and provide a pleasant and safe tourism experience.
The STA is the organization behind Visit Saudi, the official brand; for the promotion as well as revitalization of tourism in the Kingdom.
The Authority is responsible for developing, marketing and promoting tourism products; packages; and destinations in the Kingdom while monitoring and developing the tourist experience.
