Port Sultan Qaboos (PSQ) is situated in the Gulf of Oman at the entrance to the
Arabian Gulf. The port is 350 kilometers to the south of the Straits of Hormuz and
close to main shipping routes connecting the Middle East with Africa, Asia and Europe.
PSQ is well positioned to attract international cruise ships and serves as one of Oman’s
primary tourism gateways. The port is equipped with a modern passenger terminal as well as
all of the berthing and ancillary facilities needed for safe cruise operations.
Modern infrastructure and efficient services played an important role in the port’s recognition as
the Most Improved Cruise Destination between 2010 and 2014 by Cruise Insight Magazine.
MARAFI has managed and operated Port Sultan Qaboos since the January 1, 2018, and we
are committed to building on this legacy of excellence.
