Technology, artificial intelligence and innovation in the cruise ships of the future enable us to visualize the pace of growth of the city of Dubai, while allowing us to sail at speeds in excess of 50 knots per hour – almost twice the speed of fastest cruise ships today. Our aim is to provide unique luxury on board, unexplored itineraries and unique travel experiences, ensuring that our commitment to our passengers is met. At the moment, all members of the Emirates team are preparing for the sailing of the maiden voyage.”
