Hong Kong Cruise Terminal To Be In World Class Of Its Own
"Hong Kong is fully geared up to provide cruises of all sizes," said James Tien, chairman of the Hong Kong Tourism Board in a Travel Weekly report.
The ability to handle passenger vessels supposedly as large as two, 1,200-foot, Oasis-class cruise ships at a time puts the 985,716 square-foot Kai Tak cruise terminal in a world class of its own. Not even custom-built Terminal 18 at Florida's Port Everglades (240,000 square feet), home to Royal Caribbean's Oasis and Allure of the Seas, can do that.
When complete, Kai Tak will have five passenger bridges, 100 check-in stations and the ability to process 3,000 passengers an hour. Those waiting to board will have no lack of things to do either with close-by local attractions Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden setting the stage for a unique sailing experience.
Think a trip to Hong Kong and maybe a cruise might go well together? Check this video with more details about Hong Kong's Kai Tak cruise terminal.
