Seabourn Encore is berthed at Doha Port on Thursday.
Mwani Qatar noted that the success achieved in the 2016-2017 season has increased the attractiveness of Qatar as an important tourist destination in the region, prompting more international shipping lines to include Qatar on their destinations. “This season will witness the arrival of two of world’s largest cruise ships, the TUI Mein Schiff 5 (3,820 passengers) and MSC Splendida (4,000 passengers),” Mwani Qatar said. “This confirms Doha Port’s status and its ability to receive all cruise ship types, following the success achieved last season in receiving the giant cruise ship MSC Fantasia.” The 600-passenger Encore is due to return to Doha Port later on April 11 and 24, 2018. Seabourn Encore is one of the world’s newest and most luxurious cruise ships with 300 suites, all with private verandas offering complimentary butler service. The ship also offers other facilities such as a panoramic fitness centre, spa, showrooms, duty-free shops and many more.
