Dubai will start building a second cruise terminal within a year to cope with an expected jump in the number of cruise tourists according to an official cited by Gulf News. 165,000 tourists will visit Dubai via cruises in the 2007-8 season but this should have increased to 350,000 by 2010. Awad Seghayer Al Ketbi, the Executive Director of the Dubai Cruise Terminal, said an announcement is due by February.
