Cruise: Every port call a smooth sailing breeze

Cruise new

Cruising is big business. Whether it’s traditional luxury tours of tropical hot spots or voyages of discovery, ever more people are opting for a holiday afloat. The cruise sector is changing to accommodate that demand for new locations, niche tours and fresh experiences.

Global network, local expertise

Hong Kong as Asia’s cruise hub is a preferred cruise destination in the region. There are two cruise terminals in Hong Kong. Situated in the heart of the city, Ocean Terminal can dock two cruise ships with a maximum displacement of 50,000 tonnes at both sides of the terminal which is linked directly to the mega shopping malls in Tsim Sha Tsui. The other one is Kai Tak Cruise Terminal situated near the runway of the old airport in East Kowloon. It can dock two ultra-large ships with a displacement of 220,000 tonnes at the same time and can also dock the world’s largest cruise ships. Cruise operators are attracted by Hong Kong ports’ fast clearance of cruise vessels and passengers, along with its good transportation system linking to all the main tourist attractions.
