ROYAL CARIBBEAN’S SPECTACULAR RETURN TO HK!

The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has welcomed the return of Royal Caribbean International’s Spectrum of the Seas to Hong Kong for the first time after travel resumed in the city, in addition to its announcement Hong Kong will become its homeport in 2024. The HKTB held a welcome ceremony at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal on 4 August. The ceremony featured a lively lion dance and drums performance to welcome the return of the cruise liner. The HKTB also handed out souvenirs to cruise passengers arriving in Hong Kong.

With the proactive efforts of the Government and HKTB before and after the pandemic to ensure a safe return of the destination’s cruise industry, vessels of 18 cruise lines have been secured to visit Hong Kong this year, with a total of 166 ship calls. This not only provides visitors with a richer and more diversified range of cruise itineraries and experiences but also reflects Hong Kong’s readiness to welcome more international cruise ships to the city, thus further consolidating Hong Kong’s position as a cruise hub in Asia.

The HKTB will continue to maintain close liaison with cruise lines to attract them to use Hong Kong as their homeport or departure port and support them in maintaining and increasing the number of cruises to Hong Kong, as well as launching promotional activities and building partnerships in the Greater Bay Area.

As of today, 18 cruise lines visiting Hong Kong in 2023 include:
