Cruise Terminal Facilities
Oman is a country with beautiful landscape and is the Arab Capital for Tourism for the year 2012. PSQ has a dedicated fully air-conditioned Cruise Terminal with all passenger amenities. During the main cruise season - from October to April - as many as four (4) cruise ships can call into PSQ Cruise Terminal on any one day. The Terminal has earned its reputation and has received Dream Awards for the "Most Improved Destination" since 2008.
Over the years, PSQ has become an important destination for cruise lines. Much thought and effort has gone into ensuring that the Port has a comprehensive range of facilities to cater to the demands of the cruise line passengers. The spacious Arrival Lounge has dedicated positions for Immigration, Customs, baggage collection and screening. The Departure area is well ventilated with a restaurant, bar and lounges. Other services includes Internet Cafe, Money Exchange, Taxi Services, designated parking for pick-up and drop-off. The Terminal design offers passengers the same level of comfort akin to an airport.
Muscat Duty Free at the Cruise Terminal provides choice to shopping enthusiasts, looking for international brand names at duty free prices as well as Omani artefacts & crafts.
- Priority berthing facilities are accorded to Cruise Vessels in Multi-Purpose Berths.
- 13 metres depth and 470 metres length alongside berths to accommodate big cruise vessels with straight Quay length.
- Gangways and other passenger specific services are available readily at hand.
A recent feature at PSQ is the new Ferry Terminal where fast ferries provide service between Muscat and Kasab / Shinas. National Ferries Corporation (NFC) operates these high speed ferries to these exotic locations to complement the efforts of the Ministry of Tourism of Oman to promote Oman as a tourist destination.
These and many more attractive features available at the Cruise Terminal of Port Sutlan Qaboos.
