Cruise ships on course for Red Sea tourist treasure
Cruise ships were launched in the Red Sea as part of the “Break Free”
domestic tourism campaign being held from June 25 to Sept. 30, and covering 10
tourist destinations around Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Tourism Authority (STA) launched the initiative as part of the
Kingdom’s efforts to highlight the Red Sea’s tourist treasures.

Stringent protocols to safeguard passengers’ health have been put in place by
the STA together with the Ministry of Health and tour operators.
