The country is set to launch a new cruise destination development program to promote building cruise traffic among ports such as Incheon, Busan, the Gangwon Province, and Lishui. Incheon will open a new terminal in February 2017, with two mega-ship berths.

Gangwon Province has two cruise ports: Sokcho and Donghae. The Province will host the 2018 winter Olympics.
