New Cruise Terminal to open in Hong Kong next month

The opening of Hong Kong’s new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in June looks set to herald a new chapter in the city’s maritime history and enhance its status as being one of Asia’s leading cruise hubs and top tourism destinations.

Situated mid-way along the world-famous Victoria Harbour with dramatic views of the spectacular skyline, the US$1 billion terminal is destined to become a stunning new gateway to welcome visitors to the city, already high on the must-see list for cruise travelers because of its unique east-west cultural fusion and cosmopolitan appeal.

Hong Kong’s new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal
The new terminal, designed by Lord Norman Foster, is situated on the site of the runway of the Hong Kong’s old Kai Tak Airport.

Boasting a spectacular view of the harbour, skyscraper buildings and a backdrop of sweeping hills, the terminal will feature two berths which will open in two phases in mid 2013 and 2014.

Each berth will be able to accommodate the biggest cruise vessels in the world, while the three-story terminal building will be able to clear 3,000 passengers an hour through immigration and customs channels and will feature modern and light-filled service areas and waiting halls and a beautiful landscaped roof garden.

The first ship to sail into the new terminal will be Royal Caribbean’s ‘Mariner of the Seas’ on June 12.  To search for more cruise itineraries in and out of Hong Kong please visit www.discoverhongkong.com/cruise
