Hong Kong’s new cruise terminal
The $1 billion, Norman Foster-designed space will allow mega ships to dock in Hong Kong. Now cruise visitors will have two terminals that they could be embarking and debarking from. Make sure to note either Ocean Terminal or Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Cruise Terminal to avoid confusion.
Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Cruise Terminal is located on the grounds of the former Kai Tak airport that has been closed for over 10 years. The space has been redesigned by architectural firm Foster + Partners, an international studio for architecture, planning and design led by its founder and chairman, Norman Foster.
The new terminal will allow larger ships to call on Hong Kong, a popular turnaround city for the Asia cruise market. The first ship to make a call on the facility is Royal Caribbean’s 3,000-passenger Mariner of the Seas.
