Kaohsiung Port steams ahead in international cruise line stakes



From Taiwan Today 2017

Kaohsiung is set to serve as the home port for five new cruises commencing in October, further underscoring the southern Taiwan facility’s rising reputation as a major regional player in the lucrative international sea travel industry.

The cruises are to depart from Kaohsiung on weeklong trips with stops at such destinations as Hong Kong, Japan and Vietnam. They will be serviced by the 115,875-ton, 1,337-cabin Sapphire Princess, which is operated by U.S.-headquartered Princess Cruises—one of the best-known names in worldwide cruising and part of Carnival Corporation & PLC.

During the Jan. 17 launch ceremony at landmark Kaohsiung City Library, an official from Taiwan International Ports Corporation Ltd., state-run operator of the country’s five major harbors, said the cruises underscore the effectiveness of efforts to promote Kaohsiung as a home port for more international cruise lines. This has been achieved through close collaboration with Kaohsiung City Government, harbor management firms and cruise companies, as well as international cruise associations, the official added.

Harbor management firms are developing marketing strategies for vacation packages aimed at encouraging tourists from India, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore to fly to Kaohsiung and take a cruise, the official said, adding that the strategy is expected to help significantly grow Taiwan’s share of the international cruise industry.

The latest TIPC statistics reveal that Kaohsiung was the home port for 24 inbound and outbound voyages in 2016, with 42,000 passengers enjoying the cruises. These numbers are forecast to hit 88 and 100,000, respectively, this year.

According to TIPC, Taiwan glitters with cruise industry potential. The country was the second largest source market in Asia by passenger volume for 2015, as confirmed by data from Cruise Lines International Association, a U.S.-based cruise industry trade organization.

As part of preparations to meet growing market demand for cruises at Kaohsiung Port, work is underway on a new international container terminal. Projected for completion in 2019, the facility will boast 19 new wharves—the largest of which can handle container ships up to 22,000 TEUs, or 20-foot equivalent units.

Kaohsiung Port is one of Taiwan’s five major ports directly overseen by TIPC under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications. The others are in Hualien County, eastern Taiwan; Keelung City, northern Taiwan; and Taichung City, central Taiwan. The facility topped Taiwan’s total volume of cargo throughput in 2015 with 46.08 percent, or 110.90 million metric tons, according to the latest TIPC statistics.

搶郵輪郵潮,搭郵輪出國旅遊已成為近幾年來新興的度假方式,今年國際郵輪造訪高雄港預報達72艘次,預計將有10萬進出港旅客人次,估計帶來千萬美元觀光產值。高雄市政府今天上午與港務公司及雲頂集團麗星郵輪宣布要在高雄母港提供雙郵輪服務。
郵輪像是漂浮在海上的度假村,在船上可以滿足全家的吃喝玩樂需求,睡一覺隔天就到新的國家,免去換飯店等舟車勞頓,2018年3月底至7月,麗星郵輪派遣雙子星及寶瓶星號郵輪從高雄出發,每人3999元起前往日本及香港等地出國遊玩,就是要讓高雄市民以親民的價格從自家門口高雄港輕鬆出國觀光。

看好高雄郵輪市場,麗星郵輪公司、臺灣港務公司、臺灣國際郵輪協會、高雄市旅行公會及市府相關局處合作,在3月31日至4月25日、6-7月開闢以高雄為母港的郵輪航線42艘次,預計創造約3萬艙位;4月份配置雙子星(5萬總噸,總載客約1,530人)前往日本5天4夜或4天3夜、香港3天2夜航程,更首創安排3天2夜澎湖花火節航次, 6到7月份配置寶瓶星(5萬總噸,總載客約1,530人),創下麗星郵輪首次以高雄港進行雙郵輪母港服務的新里程碑。

高雄市長陳菊說,高雄港天然條件優越,又不受東北季風影響,且鄰近小港機場,交通便利以及金融機能發達的市區,十分適合發展郵輪觀光產業。

麗星郵輪已6大旅行社簽約(捷利、永業、上順、大登、良友、新進等),並開放受理報名。

二艘國際郵輪靠高雄港 估一日衝30萬美金觀光產值


今天高雄港好熱鬧,9.1萬噸的千禧號及5萬噸的諾帝卡號同時灣靠高雄港,預期將為高雄帶來約6,000進出港郵輪旅客人次。依據交通部調查搭乘郵輪來台旅客每人每日平均消費100美金計算,初步估計一天就可為高雄創造約30萬美金的觀光產值。

高市海洋局指出,隸屬菁英郵輪的千禧號「菁英千禧號」於2000年6月17日下水,在2012年翻新,引進多項大受歡迎的設備,包括艙房的水療設施﹑特色餐廳Blu及Qsine﹑充滿時代感的網路咖啡廳Celebrity iLounge 及獨特的馬天尼酒吧及Crush酒吧。9.1萬噸的千禧號滿載將有2,100多位客人,加上900多位船員,將帶來3,000名左右觀光人潮。

而隸屬大洋郵輪小巧的諾蒂卡號可說是五臟俱全,泳池、健身室、劇院、圖書館、網路中心及賭場等無一或缺,更可找到美國高檔水療中心Canyon Ranch SpaClub;郵輪上選用優質Versace餐具的餐飲設施,是因為擔任大洋郵輪廚藝總監的法籍名廚Jacques Pepin,曾是三位法國總統的私人主廚,由他帶領的團隊,使大洋郵輪獲得海上最佳美食榮譽。

在諾蒂卡號,大家除可在擁有法國貴族式奢華典雅環境的主餐廳Grand Dining Room享用星級郵輪美食,更可來到著名義大利菜食府Toscana品嘗頂級意菜,以及在Polo Grill嘗到上等牛排料理,而跟其他郵輪不一樣的,便是客人不用額外付出訂位費,便可在Toscana及Polo Grill等特色餐廳用餐,不少老顧客在訂房時一併預約兩家餐廳的座位,不用擔心會因客滿而向隅。

海洋局林英斌局長表示,為了迎接這兩艘高端郵輪載來的國際旅客,讓遠來的海上貴賓對高雄留下美好的旅遊回憶,市府相關局處,以及臺灣港務公司、CIQS等單位共同齊心協力,提供高雄旅遊諮詢、交通接駁及外幣兌換等各項服務,營造高雄郵輪碼頭最舒適友善的通關及旅客接待環境。
