In recent years, Hong Kong has established itself as one of Royal Caribbean’s top markets in Asia, and will be one of the homeports for the Legend of the Seas cruises, from February 2010, in time for the Chinese New Year holiday season.

 Hong Kong will be offering four distinct itineraries ranging from five to fourteen nights, visiting a mix of popular and exotic ports-of-call such as Hualien, Taipei (Keelung), Hue, Halong Bay, Nagasaki, Seoul (Incheon) and Sanya. These include a spectacular five-night cruise to Taipei (Keelung), Okinawa and ending in Shanghai. Before returning to Hong Kong in September 2010, the ship will be also homeported in Shanghai and for the first time, Tianjin and Yokohama.

Margaret Fong, Commissioner for Tourism, said, “Legend of the Seas’ deployment to Hong Kong reflects the growing importance of the cruise market in the region, as well as Hong Kong’s position as a leading cruise hub. Hong Kong is well-positioned to help propel the growth of the cruise industry in the region. With the new cruise terminal, Hong Kong will be ready to receive the next generation of mega cruise ships, including the upcoming largest-ever cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas. We look forward to welcoming many more world-class mega cruise ships homeporting or calling at Hong Kong.”

The 70,000-tonne Legend of the Seas offers more than 2,000 passengers access to a wide range of entertainment and relaxation options including the signature miniature golf course and rock climbing wall, Legend Day spa and fitness centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and Broadway-style shows.

 Dining choices are similarly extensive with epicurean delights served at the Romeo and Juliet Dining Room from where one can enjoy a view out to sea, or for more relaxed settings guests can choose the buffet-style Windjammer Café and pizza parlour or order room service 24-hours a day. The ship also caters to Asian preferences through some customizations, like Chinese food on menus and having staff onboard trained in many of the finer points of Asian culture.
