Port operators to promote East Asian itineraries

By Tom Stieghorst
Two port operators in China have signed an agreement intended to develop the cruise economy in East Asia.

Worldwide Cruise Terminals and Taiwan International Ports Corp. said they plan to encourage cruise lines to develop itineraries that include Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Worldwide Cruise is the operator of the newly opened Hong Kong terminal at Kai Tak. Taiwan International Ports manages seven ports in Taiwan.

The agreement also calls for information exchange between the two companies, joint sales and promotion efforts and personnel exchanges to share operational and management experience.

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. is a 20% partner in Worldwide Cruise.
