Guide to Cruise Ports and Terminals

Hong Kong Cruise Terminal

The new cruise terminal in Hong Kong is called the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.  It is located on what previously was the Kai Tak Airport.  The terminal is within 10 km (6 miles) of Hong Kong's top attractions.

Passengers can check-in for their cruise at the Kowloon Airport Express Terminal up to 24 hours before departure.  This allows them to spend time in Hong Kong without worrying about luggage prior, prior to boarding their ship.

Public Transportation

Port Shuttle

Free shuttle busses are provided for cruise passengers connecting the airport and nearby MTR stations.

Some cruise lines also offer their own shuttle services.

Taxi Service

Taxi Service is relatively inexpensive in Hong Kong.  Consequently, many passengers elect to travel the 10 km distance from the city centre to the cruise terminal by cab. 

A taxi from Hong Kong International Airport to the cruise terminal, however, is much more expensive.  It costs HK $300.00 (USD $45.00)

Bus Service

A minibus service (i.e. Green Minibus #86) connects the cruise terminal with the Kowloon MTR station (Telford Gardens).  The journey takes 8-25 minutes and costs $5.50.

Ferry Service

The Hong Kong cruise terminal can be accessed from Hong Kong Island via a scenic ferry ride from North Point or Sai Wan Ho pier (on Hong Kong Island) to Kwun Tong pier (near the cruise terminal).  A taxi ride is required, however, for the final leg of the journey.
