For the first time ever, the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, operated by Worldwide Cruise Terminals, welcomed four cruise ships at two berths on the same day on March 19 in Hong Kong.
The four ships calling, in order of arrival, were Genting Dream, Costa Victoria, MS Europa 2 and MSC Lirica. The call by Hapag-Lloyd’s MS Europa 2 was an inaugural call.
Jeff Bent, managing director of WCT, said: “We are delighted to welcome in a single day this broad diversity of lines, catering to local, short-haul and long-haul overseas markets, on brief and extended itineraries, for homeport and transit calls, at a variety of price points. It aptly demonstrates the cross-market appeal of Hong Kong for the entire spectrum of cruise segments, as well as the efficiency and flexibility of the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal to handle multiple varied operations.”
