Hong Kong Cruise Holidays
As the gateway to some of Asia’s most fascinating countries and cities, including Japan, Taiwan and Korea, Hong Kong is both a popular cruise destination and starting point. Of course, passengers also flock to this unique city to experience its many wonders, from the hustle and bustle of everyday street markets to the glitz and glow of the neon lights and shops. If you’ve been thinking of putting Hong Kong high on your port of call list, read on. We’re shining a spotlight firmly on this impressive locale.
A wide range of cruise lines travel to and from Hong Kong, providing you with a world of choice when it comes to accommodation, amenities, lifestyle and pricing. Royal Caribbean International in particular has a large presence in Asia, with the Voyager of the Seas embarking on a number of tours that feature Hong Kong as a key stop. Princess Cruises, Star Cruises, Cunard, Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Silversea are just a few of the other cruise lines you could choose to sail with to this part of the world.
Conveniently located, Hong Kong’s larger-than-life cruise terminals are close to the action and life of the city. The Ocean Terminal is linked with the Harbour City shopping complex, meaning you can disembark and immediately be immersed in a variety of quality eateries and shops. In fact, there are 450 retailers, 50 restaurants, cinemas and hotels in the same giant shopping complex.
The Kai Tak Cruise Terminal is about a 20-minute drive away from the Ocean Terminal and features the largest rooftop garden in Hong Kong, providing you with a truly beautiful and peaceful place to soak up views of the city surrounds. The Kai Tak Cruise Terminal Park also boasts a water garden, fountain plaza and central lawn.
Both terminals have first-rate passenger facilities, ensuring your transition to and from your cruise ship is nothing but pleasant and efficient.
One of the best things about Hong Kong is that visitors of all ages can find something to delight in. Children will love a day trip to Hong Kong Disneyland or Ocean Park, while those interested in the city’s culture and history can embark on an orientation tour or head to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. If you have the time, a tram trip up to Victoria Peak is a must, as the views that await you are simply stunning and the tram ride is an experience in itself. Similarly, if you’re in Hong Kong for a full day, try and dine at the Jumbo floating restaurant, a famous tourist attraction known for its signature seafood menu.
Hong Kong has a sub-tropical climate and experiences quite distinct seasons. Summer runs from June to August and the weather is generally hot, humid and sunny. Autumn comes into effect from September to November and brings with it more sunshine but cooler breezes and temperatures. Between December and February, Hong Kong experiences its winter weather, where the skies are usually dry and the temperatures drop. In spring (March-May), the evenings can be cool, but temperatures are on the rise.
