Where do cruises depart from in Dubai?

Cruises from Dubai depart from Cruise Terminal in Port Rashid. You can use a metro, Skybus or taxi to reach Port Rashid from Dubai International Airport.

If you’re taking the metro, you need to change from red to green line at Burjuman. The journey takes approximately 10-20 minutes depending on trains’ timing and frequency. After arriving at Al Ghubaiba station, Cruise Terminal is in 10-minutes’ walking distance.

Line 4 Skybus is another public transport option but is not recommended as its costs more and takes longer compared to the metro. It also drops you off farther from the port. Taxis take around 12 minutes to reach Cruise Terminal from the airport.
