Cruise Saudi's AROYA Cruises Appoints VIKAND as Healthcare Partner for First Cruise Ship

April 4, 2024 – VIKAND, the global leader in maritime healthcare, is partnering with AROYA Cruises, a new premium luxury cruise brand developed by 100% Public Investment Fund owned company, Cruise Saudi.  

VIKAND will provide a comprehensive and full-scale medical management solution for AROYA Cruises, the first cruise line to be designed with Arabian preferences at its heart. The engagement spans from pre-launch support services, biomedical device specification and procurement as well as formulary supply, to ongoing maritime healthcare support through VIKAND’s all-inclusive, proactive medical management services.   

AROYA Cruises will provide guests with authentic Arabian experiences that celebrate Saudi’s rich cultural heritage and signature hospitality, while ensuring consistent high safety and quality standards supported by VIKAND. The ship is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment to tailor all amenities to the highest standard in line with the taste of Arabian passengers. With 19 decks and 1,682 elegant cabins, this grand ship will redefine Arabian holidays and will set sail from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in 2024.   

The partnership agreement was formalized with a signing ceremony, during which Lars Clasen, CEO of Cruise Saudi, said, “We are delighted to be collaborating with VIKAND. Our clients expect a premium service, and we were impressed with their experience in delivering proactive health and wellness to guests and crew. It is important that our AROYA Cruises guests feel safe and can turn to trusted medical professionals should they feel unwell during a voyage.”  

VIKAND medical management is an all-inclusive, proactive and modular approach to onboard health and wellness inspired by the company’s deeply held values. It begins with a pre-launch analysis of biomedical equipment and onboard facilities to ensure the vessel meets all flag state and American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) requirements. 

VIKAND has deep experience in launching vessels, bringing clarity and control to the process of taking ownership of a cruise ship and preparing it for service. This support extends to the entire onboard healthcare operation, including global medical staffing and integrated supply chain solutions for all formulary and medical supplies. VIKAND provides AROYA Cruises with its full expertise at every step, from launch to operation.     

“I am delighted that AROYA Cruises have entrusted VIKAND to help launch their first cruise ship and provide ongoing support for its medical needs,” said Peter Hult, CEO of VIKAND. “We understand that each ship is a delicate ecosystem, and our services integrate seamlessly to protect guests and crew against medical risks, helping to keep everyone onboard safe and healthy. We wish this new venture well and hope to nurture a long-term partnership with AROYA Cruises.”   

ABOUT VIKAND

VIKAND provides proactive total healthcare solutions for the shipping, cruise, yachting and offshore industries. Crew members and guests alike trust VIKAND to provide expert medical care, telemedicine, risk mitigation, and other valuable health services, and the world’s leading maritime companies rely on us to protect their most important asset at sea – people.

What to expect aboard AROYA, the first-ever Saudi Arabian cruise line 

Saudi Arabia has announced the launch of AROYA, its first-ever domestic cruise line, and the first homegrown cruise brand in the Arab world, marking a true sea change in the regional cruise industry, but what will travelling aboard a Saudi cruise line be like?

aroya cruises careers email

AROYA is the first homegrown cruise brand in the Arab world

AROYA will be owned by Cruise Saudi, which is itself owned by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, but will be independently operated. Details about itineraries and the onboard experience have yet to be announced, but it seems clear that AROYA will showcase the natural beauty and cultural heritage of its home country.

The Saudi Arabian cruise line will offer a unique travel experience that combines relaxation, entertainment, and education, eschewing the bells and whistles of other cruise lines in favour of cultural and educational enrichment. This will likely be reflected in the cruise itineraries offered by the line.

aroya cruises careers email

Old Quarter, Jeddah

AROYA will offer shore excursions to key cultural sites in Saudi Arabia. The Kingdom is home to many important cultural and historic destinations. One of the most popular destinations for tourists is the historic city of Jeddah, which is known for its beautiful architecture, bustling markets, and seaside promenade. Jeddah is also home to several museums and art galleries, which would be of particular interest to passengers interested in learning more about Saudi Arabian culture.

Jeddah will also be the homeport for AROYA Cruises, following a successful business model established by MSC Cruises , which has operated several popular cruise seasons out of Saudi Arabia, using Jeddah as the homeport for its Red Sea itineraries.

aroya cruises careers email

Al Hijr, Saudi Arabia

Itineraries have yet to be confirmed, but a key cultural site that a Saudi Arabian cruise line might visit is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Al-Hijr , which is located in the northwest of the country. Al-Hijr is a pre-Islamic archaeological site that contains the remains of a series of stone structures and tombs, many of which date back to the first century BC. This site is of significant historical and cultural importance and would be an excellent destination for passengers interested in learning more about the country’s ancient past.

Al-Hijr lies several hundred kilometres inland and would be accessed from the port of Yanbu, or indeed the futuristic city of NEOM, a greenfield development that will include a floating industrial complex, a global trade hub, tourist resorts and a linear city called The Line—all powered exclusively by renewable energy sources.

Accomodation options aboard AROYA Cruises will likely range from the affordable inside cabins of most mainstream cruise brands, to more exclusive suites and even penthouses in a nod to the ultra-rich clientele that characterise the Middle East tourism market .

The cruise line would likely offer a range of high-end cabins and suites, with amenities such as private balconies, luxurious bedding, and top-of-the-line entertainment systems.

AROYA will also likely offer a variety of onboard amenities designed to promote relaxation and well-being, such as a spa and wellness center, fitness facilities, and of course several swimming pools. The cruise line may also offer specialized activities and classes such as yoga, meditation, and other wellness-focused programs, rather than the big, boozy parties found aboard other cruise lines.

aroya cruises careers email

Saudi Arabia is known for its rich cultural heritage, and a Saudi Arabian cruise line would offer a range of entertainment options designed to showcase this cultural wealth. This might include traditional music and dance performances, as well as art exhibits and other cultural displays. There is also likely to be live music and comedy performances to film screenings and interactive workshops, but they will be tailored to remain sensitive to the cultural values of Saudi Arabia and the wider Arab world.

Some of the entertainment may be gender-segregated for example, and there may be women-only events and activities in some of the lounges during the day, while at least one of the pools onboard, and spa, will almost certainly be gender-segregated. Similarly, passengers may be expected to adhere to a dress code that prohibits roaming the ship in swimming costumes.

It’s unclear whether AROYA ships will be an alcohol-free environment: As alcohol consumption is prohibited in Saudi Arabia, the cruise line would likely be an alcohol-free environment, but the Kingdom has made moves in recent years toward introducing spaces in which alcohol consumption is allowed for tourists . What will almost certainly not be offered on-board is a casino, as gambling is strictly forbidden in Saudi Arabia.

When it comes to dining, AROYA will offer a high-end, but unique range of cuisines, as all food served onboard will likely be Halal. Halal refers to food and drinks that are permissible under Islamic law, meaning they must be prepared and consumed in accordance with specific guidelines.

aroya cruises careers email

Manama (formerly World Dream) provides a range of dining options

Some of the key requirements of halal food include that it must be slaughtered in a specific way, with the animal facing Mecca, and the person performing the slaughter must say a prayer. The food must also not contain any alcohol or pork products, and any meat must be from an animal that has been raised and fed in accordance with Islamic principles.

For AROYA as a Saudi Arabian cruise line, halal food options would be an important consideration for catering to Muslim passengers, who make up a significant portion of the country’s population, as well as its own values as a Saudi-based cruise line. The line would likely offer a wide variety of halal dishes, including traditional Middle Eastern cuisine such as hummus, falafel, and shawarma, as well as international cuisine that is prepared in accordance with halal guidelines, much like international hotels based in the Kingdom.

AROYA then will offer a unique and culturally rich travel experience that showcases the beauty and heritage of the country while also adhering to local customs and traditions.

Aroya Cruises Saudi fleet

Aroya manara, review of aroya cruises saudi.

Aroya Cruises is a new travel brand and subsidiary company (2023-established) operated by Cruise Saudi (2021-founded cruise agency/ Jeddah -based tourism business). Both companies are fully owned by Saudi Arabia's PIF/Public Investment Fund.

As of 2023, Aroya Cruises' fleet consists of only one vessel - Aroya Manara (2017-built as "MS World Dream" for Genting Cruise Lines' premium brand Dream Cruises). Dream Cruises was launched in November 2015 as a Genting Hong Kong /GHK-owned subsidiary company.

MS Manara's shipowner is PIF's subsidiary World Dream Company Inc (2023-founded).

Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) was founded in 1971 as the Kingdom's sovereign wealth fund. PIF is currently ranked one of the world's largest by AUM (assets under management) operating ~USD 620 billion in assets.

The name AROYA is a combination of "Arabian" and "roya" (meaning "vision" or "dream"), but could also be interpreted as a connotation for "royal".

Cruise Saudi's AROYA brand targets predominantly domestic but also international tourists, mainly from India. The brand aims to become Red Sea's leading and one of Asia's premium cruise shipping businesses.

AROYA plans a steady/year-on-year increase in passenger numbers and adding new Saudi coastline destinations rarely visited otherwise. The company's main goals are by the year 2035 is to increase its customers to 1,3 million (domestic and international tourists) as well as to provide ~50,000 Saudi jobs (direct and indirect).

Aroya Cruises Reveals Inaugural Deployment

  • May 28, 2024

Aroya Ship Rendering

Aroya Cruises recently revealed more details of its inaugural deployment. Operating the former World Dream, the Arabian cruise line is set to offer a series of three- to seven-night itineraries in the Red Sea starting in December.

Departing from the Port of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, sailings are already available for booking on Aroya’s website.

The first cruise is scheduled to depart on December 16, 2024. Sailing roundtrip from Jeddah, the three-night voyage features a day at sea, in addition to a visit to Cruise Saudi’s private island in the Red Sea.

According to Aroya, the destination offers turquoise beaches and golden sands, as well as picturesque landscapes.

The same itinerary is set to be repeated through at least May 2025.

Renamed Aroya, the 2017-built vessel is also set to offer two different four-night itineraries. In addition to two days at sea, the cruises feature visits to destinations in different countries.

Being offered between December 2024 and May 2025, one of the cruises sails to Sharm-al-Sheik in Egypt, while the other features a visit to Aqaba in Jordan.

Aroya Cruises is also offering three different six- and seven-night itineraries as part of its inaugural season.

Taking place between January and March 2025, the week-long cruises sail roundtrip from Jeddah and feature visits to additional destinations, such as Ain Sokhna, from which guests can visit Egypt’s capital city, Cairo.

On its website, the company also indicates that it is set to soon offer itineraries in the Mediterranean and the Arabian Gulf.

Acquired by Aroya in late 2022, the former World Dream was built for Genting Hong Kong’s Dream Cruises in 2017.

Before entering service in Saudi Arabia, the 3,400-guest vessel is set to undergo a major refurbishment that will add experiences aimed at the local public, including the first Saudi restaurant at sea .
