Cruising Asia

Posted by: in Things To Watch

With Asia leading the global tourism market, the stage is set for rapid expansion of the region’s cruise market. Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas recently became the first ship into Hong Kong’s new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. In May, Carnival Corp. opened a regional office in Singapore as headquarters for its new Carnival Asia unit, which will oversee expanded offerings from the Costa and Princess Cruises brands. And new ports in Singapore, Shanghai and Tianjin in northern China have lured some companies away from once-popular European and Australian destinations. As Asia-Pacific itineraries expand, 2014 promises to be a big year for Asian cruisers. —Bobby Esnard
