Bahrain set to reduce port fees for cruise vessels

Bahrain's General Organisation of Ports (GOP) is set to reduce port fees for cruise vessels, as part of efforts to rescue the kingdom's upcoming tourism season, Gulf Daily News has reported, citing unnamed sources. Authorities may also reduce other charges to ensure the upcoming cruise season goes ahead in October as ships dock at the Khalifa bin Salman Port (KBSP), the sources added. "We are sure with the announcement, we will make cruise vessels coming to Bahrain even more attractive than before," one source at the GOP told the daily.
