Kai Tak Cruise Terminal: A Year of Milestones in 2016

Kai Tak Terminal

The Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, operated by Worldwide Cruise Terminals (WCT) said it had achieved a year of milestones in Hong Kong in 2016.

Kai Tak doubled the number of cruise lines welcomed from nine in 2015 to 18 in 2016. Over 70 percent of ship calls in 2016 were turnarounds, with 95 ship calls in total, yielding more than 370,000 passengers over 120 ship-days.

WCT was also recognized with an award for the Best IT Management by the Chinese Cruise and Yacht Industry Association, and received numerous local awards for environmental stewardship and corporate social responsibility.

Transport links include free shuttle buses to nearby malls and metro stations, and paid shuttles to the airport express station with airline check-in and luggage consignment up to 24 hours in advance, and the railway station with frequent trains to Shenzhen, Dongguan, Guangzhou, and other points north.

Two further Tesla superchargers were added for a new total of six at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal car park, the first location for Tesla Superchargers in Hong Kong. Public minibus and bus service frequencies were enhanced, and the newly renovated Kai Tak Runway Park Ferry Pier commenced service in late March 2016, giving local visitors and cruise passengers additional options of shore excursion programs via ferry, chartered ferry service, and regularly scheduled ferry services to Kai Tak from North Point and Kwun Tong.
