NEW cruise line Aroya Cruises has revealed details of its first ship, which is rumored to be named Aroya Manara.
Aroya is being operated by Cruise Saudi, and is refurbishing the 335-metre former World Dream, which it acquired in Mar.
Manara is set to include 19 decks, 1,682 staterooms, 17 restaurants, and a water park with five slides.
“We are delighted to sail into the new year with the unveiling of our first Aroya Cruises ship,” Cruise Saudi Chief Executive Officer Lars Clasen said.
“This marks an exciting milestone for Cruise Saudi in creating a world-class cruise industry in Saudi while offering a new way to holiday in the Kingdom for locals.
“We look forward to welcoming the first passengers on board.”
Additional details about Manara will be announced in the months leading up to her inaugural sailing, which will take place from Jeddah later this year.
