Cruise ships make history

History was made on 11 October when two massive cruise ships berthed at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal at the same time.

The 138,000 tonne cruise ships, the Voyager of the Seas and the Mariner of the Seas, are owned by Royal Caribbean International and together were carrying 7,000 passengers arriving and departing Hong Kong. They are the first cruise ships of their size to dock at the terminal at the same time.

The Voyager of the Seas departed from Hong Kong on a 7-night trip to Sanya, Vietnam and Singapore and more than 3,000 people boarded at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.

The Mariner of the Seas stayed in Hong Kong for one day before heading to Vietnam and Singapore.

Both vessels are among the top 10 largest cruise ships in the world with 15 decks and a rock-climbing wall, basketball court, ice-skating rink, mini-golf course, pools, bars, clubs, a casino and spa, among other facilities.
