China Unveils Expansion Plan for Cruise Tourism

Cruise tourism was introduced in China less than 10 years ago, but cruising has quickly become a popular way for travelers to see the destination. With this in mind, China has unveiled plans to expand its cruise offerings, including several new cruise ship terminals, more facilities and a luxury ship, with the hopes of bringing in more tourists to see China on a cruise.

Three new terminals are currently under construction and another six are in the pipeline. A massive 100,000-ton luxury liner, cruise terminal and a shipping business center are also reported to be in the works.

Carnival Corporation & plc announced it is introducing its Princess Cruises brand to China in 2014, naming Shanghai as home port for Sapphire Princess during a four-month season expected to carry 70,000 passengers.
