China to Become Asia Pacific’s Largest Cruise Tourism Market
China’s cruise ports reported 629 cruise ships leaving for trips in 2015, up 35 percent over the previous year, with cross-border cruise travellers up 44 percent over the same period in the prior year, according to the China National Tourism Administration.
The world’s top five cruise companies are now participating in the Chinese market, helping to facilitate growth.
South China’s largest cruise port, Prince Bay in Shenzhen, had a successful opening in November.
