Mina Rashid is a truly prestigious address. One of the largest ports in the region, home of the famous Queen Elizabeth 2 cruise liner, and eleven-time winner of Middle East's Leading Cruise Port Award. The late H.H. Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the father of modern Dubai, inaugurated the port in 1972. Half a century later, EMAAR embarks on a new journey to celebrate and preserve the City's heritage with a rich new sailing destination, fit for the royalty of tomorrow.
In 2008, Mina Rashid becomes the permanent home of the prized and prestigious Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) - a pinnacle of design, innovation and speed. Throughout her sailing career, the QE2 carried the rich and famous - including the likes of Nelson Mandela, Elizabeth Taylor, Buzz Aldrin and David Bowie. Before retiring in Dubai, QE2, the striking hallmark of the Cunard legacy, had completed 1,400 voyages and 25 tours around the world. 2008 was also the year Mina Rashid gets voted the Middle East's Leading Cruise Port by World Travel Awards - a title the port has managed to retain for 12 consecutive years, till date. Spread across 2,000,000 sqm, Mina Rashid is equipped to handle 5 mega cruise vessels simultaneously.
This is the story of the economic cornerstone of Dubai - a historical port of rich culture, borne out of the vision of a great leader. Today, EMAAR and P&O Marinas take great pride in announcing Dubai's new opulent coastal destination - Mina Rashid - to celebrate Dubai's great past, glorious present, and the most promising future.
