Bon Voyage…

The very first Arab cruise line, AROYA Cruises by Cruise Saudi has just been launched, so get ready to set sail.


Backed by the Public Investment Fund (PIF), the new cruise will allow Saudi nationals, expatriates, and regional guests to experience and explore the wonders of Saudi Arabia from the sea.

The name combines the words  “Arabian” and “Roya” meaning a vision or dream. AROYA Cruises aim to offer the highest standard of service, facilities and shore excursion programme.

The company aims to showcase Arabian experiences and highlight cultural heritage, natural beauty, and warm hospitality by providing an immersive journey through the Kingdom.

Lars Clasen, CEO of Cruise Saudi says: “This momentous step marks a historical milestone in Cruise Saudi’s ambitious strategy to create a premium cruise ecosystem in Saudi, in line with Vision 2030. AROYA Cruises will be operating as an autonomous brand within the Cruise Saudi portfolio, aiming to provide experiences and services specifically designed to embrace Arabian preferences.”

The AROYA Cruises schedule and packages are currently under development and are set to be announced at the brand’s commercial launch in the coming months.

Cruise Saudi aims to welcome 1.3 million cruise passengers annually by 2035 and as an added plus, will provide 50,000 direct and indirect jobs, so strap yourself for some smooth sailing.
